No Regrets
By Mark and Patti Brands

I cannot say enough good things about Mike and working with Thunder Creek. We had a bit of a unique situation. We were living overseas when we decided to build our home. We were back for a visit and met with a few builders and talked to them about building for us while we were out of the country. Mike was the only one who said “no problem” we can work with that. He was awesome. He helped us design the house, gave us all kinds of ideas to make our home unique and different. Even though we could not see the progress and what was going on every week he kept us updated every step of the way. There were decisions along the way that would have been easier to make had we been there but Mike helped and took care of everything. He truly went above and beyond for us. I was never worried how things were going to come together but when we walked in the first time it was amazing. It turned out perfectly. We have been in our home for almost a year and I wouldn’t change a thing. We absolutely love it. I would highly recommend Thunder Creek to anyone. They take great pride in their homes and making sure their customers love their new home.

From the moment we contacted Terry regarding our home, he took the time to listen to our needs. He took us on several tours of homes he had built, including some where his clients were residing in. Terry was willing to make adjustments to our floor plans to suit our needs, and ultimately design a beautiful custom home, which is everything we hoped and dreamt of. Terry and Mike are highly professional and very easy to communicate with. They work great together and Customer Service was evident from the beginning. Their goal is simply to build you a beautiful home, and they want their clients happy while getting the best value for your money. It wouldn’t be fair not to mention the Subs as they are amazing. Brian and his crew are very talented, and obviously were in constant communication with Terry and Mike as well as us though out our project. They did an amazing job! And they had to deal with us walking though on a daily basis! You can apply that same message to the plumbers, stone workers, etc. Not only are we happy, but when anyone comes into our home, they immediately see the attention to detail and the planning that went into the home. If they don’t know who built our home they ask! Most importantly a family that is completely satisfied with the beautiful home that we have created. If you are looking to build a house, you can call anyone, if you are looking to build a home that is something special or unique, call Thunder Creek Custom Homes! Ann and Chris Frankenhoff

Great Experience!!
By Steve & Sara Buresh

We chose Thunder Creek Custom Homes after seeing and liking their customization and unique finishes in their homes we toured year after year on the parade of homes. We took our plans to Terry and Mike and they worked with us through the entire build process. We had heard the horror stories of building and our experience was the complete opposite. Communication from Terry and Mike was superb through the entire process. The finished product is a high quality home. We love it!

My husband and I built our first custom home this year. I am so glad that we chose Thunder Creek Custom homes. I was nervous after talking to friends on how overwhelming the experience can be. From choosing land to choosing all of the fixtures, etc. Mike and Terry were so helpful in making sure that we got the best value for our money. I was not overwhelmed at any time due to their help and advice and actually had a great time choosing everything. We are so happy in our new dream home. I would highly recommend this great company to build your dream home.

Excellent Communication
By Paul Eickman

What we liked especially about Thunder Creek is they kept us informed of the progress and obstacles along the way. They built our home in the spring of 2013 and Mother Nature was relentless with late winter snowstorms and spring rains. Even though delays were inevitable (because of the weather), Terry kept in touch with us to completion of our dream home every step of the way. This was our second new home construction and if we decided to build another one we would go to Thunder Creek for sure. Thank you Terry, Mike ,and Bryan.

Best builder around!
By Kevin and Heather Jessen

We couldn't have asked for a better experience in our home building process! We have never talked with anyone who, in the end, still actually liked and would recommend their builder so we were a bit nervous. Well, we are living in our new home and still can say we LOVE our builder!! We were told home building is very stressful... NOT SO at all!! Mike and Terry know what they're doing and walk you right through it all. They answer your questions promptly (even after closing!) Before you know it, you're living in your custom home! If you are trying to decide on a builder, don't choose one until you've visited with Thundercreek! We are waiting for the rains to stop so we can finish our exterior, driveway and landscaping, but we LOVE our new home thanks to Thundercreek!!!


Thunder Creek did a phenomenal job in creating and building our first new home. As someone who works in sales, I understand the importance of customer service and professionalism; Mike and Terry are perfect examples of what a true service professional is and provided master craftsmanship. We are 1 year into our new home, and couldn't be more please. I still contact Mike on a weekly basis with questions for help as we finish our basement!! This business will always be highly recommended by my family for their professionalism and incredible work!

Builder you can trust
By Danae D Sumners

This was the third home I have built and was by far the best experience. With Mike and Terry you really felt like you were the customer. When i had questions or concerns, Mike always got back to me and had an immediate resolution. They were very budget concious and I did not pay more at the end of building process then the price that house was initially agreed on--unless I chose to add. There were no price surprises! I always felt they had my best interest. Very trustworthy home builders! Highly recommend!

By Preston Dahl

This was the first home I have ever built and it was a very easy and rewarding experience. From start to finish Mike and Terry were always in contact with updates on progress, timelines, etc. and always answered the phone or texts. My home turned out better than I could of imagined. I always get compliments on how great the craftsmanship is and how cool the little details are throughout the home. I would recommend Thunder Creek to anyone and will definitely use them if I build in the future.

Great To Work With
By Christy Schultz

This is the 3rd home I've built, each with different builders, and Thunder Creek is by far the best I've ever worked with. Mike and Terry not only sat down and worked with me on matching what I wanted with my budget, but they made sure they were communicating with me throughout the entire process of the build. The house they built is beautiful and well built. I would highly recommend them to anyone building a new home. I would definitely go back to Thunder Creek Homes to build another home!

Made our Dream Home Possible
By Arnie & Barb Koopman

Our dream home was made possible due to all the attention to detail and quality workmanship that Terry and Mike (and the subs) exhibited everyday throughout the build process. Terry and Mike partnered with us every step of the way. We were a team, they took whatever time we needed to answer our many questions and discuss options. On a scale from 1 - 10, we give them a 10+! We highly recommend Thunder Creek and would definitely build with them again...although I'm not sure we are interested in moving anytime soon because we LOVE our new home. Thank you Terry and Mike, you are amazing and definitely have set the bar high when it comes to building a quality custom home.

One Of A Kind Home
By Ashley & Collin Donley

From the very first sit down Mike and Terry have been amazing to work with. They took our ideas and budget and really worked with us to make sure we got the most for our dollar. From helping us locate the land for our acreage to answering our million questions and all the way through the build and even into taken ownership and now living in our new home, Mike and Terry have made it clear they certainly have their customers best interests at heart as well as creating a quality home anyone can be proud to own. We would highly recommend Thunder Creek Custom Homes to anyone in the Sioux Falls, South Dakota area looking to build a one of a kind dream home. You will not be disappointed!
