Choose Extraordinary

For customers in the greater Des Moines Metro area who desire an extraordinary, high-performance home, Brighton Homes is the only company to build energy-efficient, custom-designed homes that use superior building technology and are constructed by full-time employees.

Brighton Homes builds new homes using Insulated Concrete Forms for a new basement or foundation. This method ensures a level and plumb start to the rest of the home. We offer traditional stick-built construction or the innovation that comes with Structural Insulated Panels. ICF and SIP construction are proven construction methods that result in a tighter building envelope, a more comfortable home and reduce the cost of home ownership.

Discover What Makes Our New Homes


Brighton Homes understands how important starting with the best possible products and materials is to the quality and performance of the finished home. This along with superior attention to details by our own employee-crews is what sets us apart from other home builders.


Insulated Concrete Forms are simply reinforced concrete walls that we use for new home foundations or basements. These forms are left in place permanently and serve as thermal and acoustic insulation. We are excited about ICF construction because it provides a plumb level and square foundation to build upon.


The engineered fabrication of SIP walls and roofs allow for unique, custom-designed homes with extremely high R-values. These panels reduce the overall cost of home ownership while providing superior strength and comfort.


Brighton Homes is the only builder in the Des Moines Metro area to offer new home construction options of traditional stick-built, Insulated Concrete Forms and Structural Insulated Panels. We can use one or a combination of these methods to deliver a home that is simply more extraordinary. Unlike other builders, our framing and finishing crews are employees of our company, which means that they care more about the most important aspects of your new home. They understand that the attention to detail is what sets us apart from other home builders. Learn more about our complete line of products and services for new home construction and renovation.
