About Strahan Construction

A Message From Reid

A Message From Reid

"I have been building custom homes in Ankeny and the Greater Des Moines area since 1986. My wife Cindy and I work as a team to build the dream home of our customers. We fight for the details and want your home to have lots of "street appeal". We are committed to quality and excellence in every aspect of home construction. We have developed an organized building process that makes building a new home an enjoyable experience. It is important to us to make honesty, integrity and customer care the hallmarks of our business. Our number one goal is to have good relationships with our customers before, during and after the sale. That is why we are still building homes after nearly 30 years."
