Who is Gnu?

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!
