About The Builder

Dave Platz, Owner

Dave Platz, Owner

I’ve grown up in the construction business. I love what I do, and I’m passionate about every aspect of new home construction. I especially enjoy the lasting relationships that I’ve built with so many of my clients and sub-contractors over the last 30+ years in business.

My father and uncle were homebuilders in Oregon for over 40 years. I started out in the family business after school as a kid – pulling weeds, cleaning driveways, and installing rain gutters. After high school, I learned framing and finish carpentry from our team of skilled craftsmen. During that time, I also attended college and took numerous courses on blueprint reading, construction/business management, custom homebuilding and accounting.

After completing my college courses, I joined the management team at my father’s company, overseeing day to day activities for one of the biggest residential construction companies in Oregon at the time. My father eventually retired, and my uncle went to work in Boise as an FHA home inspector for the remainder of his career (which is how I came to fall in love with the Boise area 25+ years ago).

I continued where my father left off, starting my own construction companies in both Oregon & Idaho, where I have continued to build high-quality, custom homes ever since. At Artisan Homes, we’re known for our innovative and efficient floor plans, timeless designs, and unwavering commitment to craftsmanship. I’m a hands-on type of guy, and I stay very involved with my sub-contractors and homebuyers throughout each and every project.

On a personal note, I have 4 beautiful children and when I’m not working on construction projects, I like to spend time hiking, golfing, and traveling. I have successfully passed my private pilot ground school preparation and am on my way to becoming a private pilot in my spare time.
