Over 30 Years Experience
Viking Construction, Inc. is an Idaho Corporation that was started in 1980 by Wendell Olson. Wendell’s hands-on approach brought him success as he built his communities, one house at a time, on the loadstone of customer service. Over the years, Viking’s reputation as a loyal, up-front and trustworthy company has grown as their communities thrived. Viking has built over 3000 homes in the Inland Empire, the Spokane, WA and Coeur d’Alene, ID areas. In 2005, we built close to 450 homes, and in the recently tough economy, we held strong - remaining the largest builder in this market place with building above 150-200 homes per year.
As one of the area’s largest builders, we understand the importance of customer satisfaction. In fact, our Warranty and Service Program is broadly admired in the field. When we welcome each new owner to their Viking Home, it is with the pride and certainty that their family will enjoy community, safety and affordable luxury – with terrific follow-through. Not only do we strive for our current customers referrals to their friends and family, we work hard to insure that as our customer’s families grow, they stay with the Viking Family and move up in another Viking Home.
Our confidence in our product allows us to grow speculatively – buying land years before our customers purchase their homes. This strength comes with the 30 years of experience, solid knowledge and quality control that our customers rely on. We have also built a thriving 66-unit apartment community that we own and operate.
“In my 50-odd years of working in the construction industry, I have worked in every facet of building a house, with the exception of the carpeting. I even worked for a short stint in the timber industry. I started the company one-house at a time, using the profits from the sale of the first to build the second on spec.” -- Wendell Olson, founder of Viking Construction, Inc.
At Viking, we understand building from the ground-up – we know how you feel when you are taking out your first mortgage for a house that is clean and safe because it is brand-new. We understand your risks and fears, because – brick by brick – we have been there. And as your family grows, we will stay with you to provide the service and care your family deserves – for every need, for every taste, through every change.
