Steve Bennett of Bennett Builders is one of our favorite builders to work with. Steve has extensive experience with so many styles of homes he is always a great fit for our projects, and we know the homes we design will be completed to the highest level of quality. Steve has an amazing attention to detail and always wants to get things right for the integrity of the design and for the clients. Steve is one of the most honest and trustworthy people I have ever met, and when our clients are building a multi-million dollar home it gives us great piece of mind to know that they are going to be taken care of, during the construction process and for years beyond the completion of their home.


I have worked with Steve Bennett on a number of projects, and he has consistently proven to be one of the best contractors to work with. He is personable and honest. He has produced custom homes of the highest quality, on time and on budget. I would highly recommend hiring him…oh, I did hire him to build the addition to my own home. He was great to work with.

Steve is not only an impressively talented contractor, showing much attention to detail, staying efficient, timely and within budget constraints, bringing both an engineering and an artistic side to his homes…but he is also a stellar individual. You could not find a more honest, ethical and conscientious person who truly cares about his finished product and his clients.
Steve Bennett built our family a beautiful home in Sunriver, Oregon. He patiently worked with us to achieve the specific goals we had in mind for our house. He generously comes back to look after the house and addresses needs we may encounter. And he does it all with a warm smile. We are so thankful for Steve & his talented crew. Highly recommend!

Bend is a small town in Central Oregon known for craft beer and outdoor recreation. Nestled along the Deschutes River, Bend’s name was originally “Farewell Bend” for the bend in the river in the center of town. Just 20 minutes drive southwest from downtown is one of the top 10 rated ski resorts in the country, Mt. Bachelor. Passed Mt. Bachelor along the Cascade Lakes Hwy are dozens of alpine lakes, idealic for camping and fishing in the summer time and nordic skiing in the winter. In Bend proper, you have two primary buttes. Awbrey Butte is on the west side of Bend and is home to many higher end neighborhoods. Pilot butte, smack in the middle of town, is iconic and can be seen from any part of town. It’s where the city launches fireworks from every 4th of July and where thousands of residents and tourists alike walk the winding trail to the top for 360 views of Central Oregon.

Bend’s population is growing at one of the fastest in the entire country. People from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and all across the country are learning about the reputation of the easy going lifestyle and unmatched beauty of Bend. The population sign on the edge of town might read 80,000 but it’s more likely Bend is pushing close to 120,000 by now.

Being in the high desert and an elevation of 3,456 feet, Bend enjoys four distinct, beautiful seasons. Bend proudly claims more days of sunshine than southern California. Even if it’s below zero in the winter, you’ll still need sunglasses. Add a few fresh hop Pale Ales to your system and it’s not hard to understand why people are so warm in this town. Life is good in Bend, Oregon.
