For over three decades (now in its 32nd year), the Parade of Homes has dazzled us with its arrival each fall. Hundreds walk through each home to find inspiration, discover upcoming trends, and take in the quality craftsmanship of the best in the business. This year the Parade will take place on the weekends of September 17/18 and 24/25.  

We are thrilled to bring you a look at the talented, well-known and new to the Billings scene builders who are participating. 

 Here’s a sneak peek at the 2022 Parade builders: 

Ban Construction 

The Ban Family

The Ban family name is one associated with quality and integrity. These native Montanans bring more than 45 years of experience in residential construction. This year's Parade home in The Nines Subdivision is at 1340 Fisher Island Place.

Branding Iron Construction 

Jarrett and Karen Smith and children.  

Jarret and Karen Smith have built over 200 homes for people all over the country in their 25 years of construction experience. The Smith’s unique custom homes are as distinctive as their clients’ backgrounds. Their 2022 Parade home is in The Grove Subdivision in West Billings at 6109 White Ash Place. 

We are very fortunate to have a great team of trade contractors, suppliers, and industry professionals who make our job possible. Our two children graduated from Billings West High School and attend Montana State University. They have played an active role in the business over the years. Building quality homes with attention to detail have been my top priority. Customer service is key, and I have formed lasting friendships along the way. I see homes as building relationships, not just structures.

Their 2022 Parade home is in Sundance Subdivision on Billings West End at 4645 Shining Light. 

Leland threw the keys to his son Dan in 1992; Dan has become the “chairman of the board,” so to speak. His oldest son, Steve, has taken over the day-to-day operations of Wells Built. Steve stands on tall shoulders and relies on and works with many more talented men and women, including Rick Stordahl, Dereme Budge, Don Brown, Kevin Ferguson, Nathan Domgaard, Mike Evans, and Ty Moreau. Anyone who knows Wells knows that families are central to everything we do. Over the years, many families have become part of the larger Wells Built Family.
