Okoboji Custom Homebuilding & Renovation


Bella Loc Homes is a full-service custom homebuilder in Okoboji, Iowa. We are equipped to handle all aspects of your new construction or remodeling project from conception to completion.

For homeowners, the design/build approach in residential construction has many advantages. It offers accurate pricing (no surprises!), a completed design that expedites construction, expert guidance and problem solving from your design-build firm, a single point of contact for better communication and much more.

The design/build concept is a departure from the “old" way of doing things — where you would hire an architect to draw the plans, put the plans out for bid and hope that contractors can come close to meeting your budget. However, a sizable percentage of these projects never get built, because homeowners get discouraged that their architect’s design far exceeds their budget.

The design/build project delivery system is a team approach, with an estimator getting involved early on in the process. Our experience and “real world" pricing knowledge helps guide the decisions made during the design process, ensuring that your budget is a major consideration and priority.


Many people don’t understand the sheer complexity of a builder’s job and the systems required to build a house from scratch. With our extensive development and building record, we can control costs and manage the build process seamlessly. We have spent a considerable amount of money and time developing software that keeps you informed daily with all aspects of the project.


Whether you want to make a few simple changes or completely overhaul your space, speak with Bella Loc Homes about our exceptional track record and our dedicated Des Moines and Spirit Lake home remodeling team. We are passionate about working with our clients to craft the best space possible in your existing home, and we will go the distance to see your project through to a successful completion.

Bella Loc Homes is a family-owned business, with Emily running the design studio and her husband Chad handling the build aspect. Together, they have over 15 years of building and construction experience. They have also assembled an exceptional team to help ensure your design, build or renovation goes as smoothly as possible.

Building your home should be an enjoyable, exciting and stress-free experience. At Bella Loc Homes we believe in a collaborative approach with our clients.
