Who We Are

A little bit about who we are….

Creating a lifestyle with Monarch Custom Homes

Innovation and quality—this is the commitment Shawn Anderson and the Monarch team make to their custom home clients. This starts by truly caring about clients, their wishes, and their lifestyles. With Monarch, this is the heart of our business. They work diligently to ensure that the client’s desires are at the forefront of each phase of the building process and to select plans that enhance the natural surroundings of each home site and meet individual and lifestyle needs.

The creativity needed to design and build a custom home means being flexible and willing to accommodate clients’ wishes and whims and stay in budget. We create a lifestyle. This means not being tied to a particular style, but to enjoy and support a variety of looks and feels in design. Shawn and the Monarch team work closely together with clients, to select plans that enhance the natural surroundings of each home site and meet individual and lifestyle needs.

Shawn (along with her previous business partner, Joel Anderson) established Monarch Development, Inc in 1994. The highly experienced team at Monarch brings clients over 30 years of experience in the building industry and Shawn’s lengthy experience in the finance industry is invaluable to clients as they navigate the home construction loan market and additionally has an eye for design that provides a unique and well-rounded homebuilding experience. The Monarch team’s thorough knowledge and attention to detail have earned their standing as one of the Inland Northwest’s top, premier home builders. By integrating creativity and quality craftsmanship, Monarch has consistently garnered top awards on homes over the years in the NIBCA Parade of Homes Show.

Monarch’s commitment to quality means that they will stand behind their work far more than required or expected. They want people to be happy living in their homes and feel confident that any unexpected issue will be taken care of quickly and permanently. It is this attitude that is responsible for Monarch’s high percentage of business through repeat customers and referrals.

At Monarch Development, we want our clients to enjoy a fun, hassle-free building experience, knowing they can trust us to perform the complex task of building the home of their dreams. Custom homes are dreams of a lifetime, and Monarch Development has proven through their years of experience that it is a company you can trust with your dream.

Please let us help make your dreams reality!

As first-time home builders, there was much we learned along the way and the Monarch team was always willing to explain and be available for our questions. Cheers to Joel, Shawn, Eric, Vanessa and their subcontractors!"- Steve & Marianna Cochran
