Ideal Story

The Ideal Story

Our principles are built on a foundation of the highest quality standards, building community, and giving back. It all started thirty years ago in Norman, Oklahoma when our founders decided to build just a few homes. This endeavor blossomed into the largest provider of new homes in central Oklahoma. We've built more than 12,000 new homes in that time and continue to grow.
