Gnu Homes was formed by Luke Yorke-Hart and Jeff Barba in 2016 to inject Gnu life in the home-building industry. Luke and Jeff wanted to convey their fun spirit and passion to create a relaxed and enjoyable home-buying experience while building quality, well-designed homes that they would actually live in.
A Gnu Story
We are a boutique builder, each one of our homes and communities has its own identity. You won’t find a single cookie-cutter home in sight.
What is a Gnu?
A gnu, also known as a wildebeest, is a funny-looking animal that inhabits the plains of Africa. A gathering of these creatures is called a herd.
“Gnu” is pronounced like “nu,” “noo” or “new,” not “ganoo.” That works well for us, because we build Gnu Homes!
We create boutique communities, each one with its own identity and architectural characteristics that are tailored to the local environment. You won’t find a single cookie-cutter home in sight.
Focused on Design
Here at Gnu Homes, we are focused on design. We pride ourselves in providing exciting, aesthetically-pleasing architecture with well-thought-out and efficient floor plans that optimize the use of space and energy. Our homes are designed to be lived in.
Better Base House
To make your Gnu Homes experience even easier, our homes come already equipped with a high level of standard features. From unique trim to high-end cabinets, we feel that our base home should be ready to be lived in and loved from the start.
Streamlined Home Buying Process
Gnu Homes is committed to a fun, streamlined home buying process. We achieve this by providing transparent pricing, easy-to-understand contracts and forms and a modern selection process that provides real-time price changes as you make selections.
