Our mission is to build a better area housing industry through promotion, advocacy and education.
The Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association (CVHBA) is a non-profit trade association representing the home building industry in the Chippewa Valley. As a membership-based organization, we serve members in all aspects of the home building and remodeling industry including: builders, subcontractors, financing, title work, marketing, insurance and other professional services. The CVHBA provides opportunities for members to build connections, market their business, and save money. In addition, the CVHBA is commited to connecting with area youth with opportunities in the skilled trades, advocating on home building and housing issues and being a resource for area homeowners.
Whether building a new home, remodeling an existing home or needing a home service, the CVHBA should be your first stop! If you aren't sure who to contact, our staff are happy to help you connect you to area businesses. All of our members go through an application process that includes reference checks, proof of business insurance and all Builder Members must have a Dwelling Contractor license. We can also answer questions and provide information for the public on a wide range of topics. Visit our blog for information on a variety of home projects.
In 2022 we celebrated 50 years of impacting the home building and remodeling industry in the Chippewa Valley and helping thousands of homeowners achieve the dream of home ownership. Check out this fantastic video (sponsored by Brooks Home Renovations) with just a few of our highlights from the past 50 years.

Being a Member of the CVHBA offers numerous opportunities and venues like the Annual Home and Garden Show and Builders After Hours that encourages face to face marketing with potential clients and other business professionals in the Chippewa Valley. The CVHBA has been an invaluable resource that has helped our business grow over the years."

"Being a member of the CVHBA has given our business a competitive edge by providing us access to the Parade of Homes and the Home and Garden Show. Our business has grown significantly from the exposure that these two events have provided. Being a member has also been great for networking and building relationships with people and businesses that surround the housing industry in the Chippewa Valley. I give credit to Lyman Lumber for encouraging me to become a member and would give the same advice to anyone that is considering joining."
Adam Ashley, Ashley Construction
“Being a member of the CVHBA connects my company with others across the entire building industry. The relationships formed by actively participating in events and committees has resulted in growth, both personally as well as professionally. It’s great working together with a group that is motivated to improve our industry, both locally as well as nationally.”
Kevin Anderson, Lyman Lumber Company
"I have been a member of the CVHBA for 15 years. To me the most important part of my membership is the advocating the association does for their members. The CVHBA is fighting to help the builders and sub-contractors with the common problems that are impacting businesses in these trying times. In addition, having the opportunity to network with other members strengthens our relationships and we believe in members using members for business whenever they can."
Pat Smith, Eau Claire Insulation & Exteriors
"I have been a member of the CVHBA for over 20 years. Being a part of such a large diverse group of construction professionals has enhanced my business. As a Mortgage Loan Officer, I use many of the CVHBA resources for both social and professional means. "
