Lifehouse Homes

Lifehouse Homes Prides Itself in Being Your Local Hometown and Homegrown Builder.

In 2008, Todd Harbrecht started this company by both designing and building all the unique floor plans you now see throughout Lowell, Indiana.

Over 15 Years of Building and 300+ Beautiful Homes Later

As Lifehouse Homes continues to grow and build new homes throughout Northwest Indiana, our goal will always be the same; to continue building homes focused around our core values:

Honesty, Integrity, and Quality

This is the reason we choose to limit the size of our team. Keeping our team relatively small ensures that when you sign a contract with us, you are meeting with one of the owners who are determined provide you peace of mind before, during and after the construction process with the personal interaction you deserve along the way.

This also allows us to deliver a well-constructed home with extra features that the common household can afford without lowering the standards that our homes are required to meet. These key areas ensure that we are able to provide all our homeowners a place to call home that is truly Built For Life!
