What sets Norman Building & Design apart from the rest? For one thing, unlike most builders who out-source the majority of the work, we have a full team of more than 20 gifted artisans and craftspeople all under one roof. They provide every service to our clients, from house plans and interior designs to cabinetry and furniture making.

This wholistic approach not only enables us to have complete control of the entire building process, it assures that you get our higher standards of quality and an assurance that the job will be done right – every step of the way. That sense of trust has given us the ability on many occasions to build homes for clients who live hundreds of miles away – even as far as England and Indonesia.

A lot of contractors have come and gone since Jim Norman founded Norman Building & Design back in 1977. The family business has thrived where others have failed over the years by:

• Having a keen understanding of design and construction that works well in Central Oregon.

• Listening to what our customers want in their dream home.

• Being eager and able to adapt to new technologies and the latest industry trends.

We’ve also succeeded by steadily assembling a hand-picked team of master craftspeople, artisans and engineers. Every member of this “extended family” brings decades of formal training and, more importantly, hands-on experience in his or her field of expertise. So, rather than being at the mercy of a cadre of subcontractors and their various whims and workloads, our lateral growth over the years has positioned us to have complete control over quality, costs and schedules.

At NBD, we love cookies as much as anyone. Especially oatmeal raisin. But we won’t stand for cookie-cutter homes. Never have. Never will.

Frankly, we don’t believe in building homes using the cheapest pre-manufactured materials, standard floor plans, factory-made style and assembly-line construction. The only people who seem satisfied with the results are the general contractor.

Instead, we build homes that suit the unique needs and desires of the homeowner, as well as the prevailing slopes and surroundings of the property.

Our in-house team of home designers, builders, structural engineers, wood workers and interior designers collaborate closely with you from the initial creative concept meeting through the exquisitely executed reality. No corners are cut. Every budget item is carefully tracked. And the final product – inside and out – is something that will leave a good taste in your mouth for as long as you live there.

While working for Norman, I constantly felt that I didn't belong and that the management team was not clearly giving directions. The training was pretty much nonexistent. Some tasks were clearly written while others were not.

I'll start with the good (there is very little):-100% coverage of your health insurance premium-Field and shop staff are competent and kindNow to the bad:Among the myriad problems Norman has, the most prominent is the complete and total lack of leadership and transparency in the office. They claim to espouse the values of blameless problem solving, transparency, and "hustling" (among others)...

Norman Building & Design is overall a great place to work. The close-knit, in-house team of project managers, CAD designers, interior designers, cabinet makers, and more all come together to produce exceptional, custom homes for their clients. The culture at Norman is family-like where everyone makes you feel welcome and challenged without overcrowding you. Norman Building & Design is in a phase o...

The company culture is much to be desired in this workplace. The work environment is not setup to co-elevate teammates, instead it tears others down. The way the company functions in the day to day is completely reactive rather than proactive. Completely lacks processes and procedures, what is existent is archaic.Lack of professionalism that you would expect for the type of client we are working...
