Why Hemme Construction


Jeff Hemme, our founder and owner, comes from a long line of builders. Since his family emigrated from Germany in the late 1800s, they have proudly produced five generations of home builders. American homebuilding is their family tradition.


Since 2000, Jeff has continued the Hemme legacy. He focuses on the needs and dreams of people wanting custom homes in the Columbia, Missouri area. With experience, integrity, and attention to detail, Jeff has made Hemme Construction one of Mid-Missouri’s premier custom home builders.

With excellence in customer service, Jeff firmly believes in client referrals and exceeding your expectations. For the past sixteen years, Hemme Construction has taken pride in building quality custom homes in Mid-Missouri.
