Building beautiful homes is what Nick Herrick loves to do. From early years working with his father in the industry to constructing his first quality home, his passion is building.

Nick built his first house in 2003, and later founded Herrick Homes with a vision of creating well-designed homes that stand the test of time.

With a degree in construction management, on-the-job CAD experience, and 7 years as a purchasing manager for a large Des Moines construction company, Nick understands the importance of good processes. They are the backbone of a construction project and essential to getting you in a quality home on schedule and on budget.

What makes Herrick Homes especially unique is Nick’s substantial experience with house diagnostics and energy efficient design. A Herrick Home is built with attention to the details of air temperature and air flow throughout the house as well as proper ventilation, insulation, and windows. Nick is inspired by “the science of building” which means a durable, energy efficient, well-designed home from the inside out.

“Nick guided us throughout the home-building process as he was not only meticulous in his planning of our home, but his execution of that plan was truly amazing.  He squeaked tons of value out of every last cent we put into the project!  His transparency and honesty gave us great comfort that we chose the right builder to construct our dream home.” — Jesse & Laura
