An affordable custom home builder that you can trust.

My name is James Hopperstad, the owner and founder of Sparrow Homes & Land.   I started this company on the principle of helping people. The home building process can be very difficult to navigate, with the homeowner/builder relationship being the key. I think it’s very important to choose the right builder.

I function as your architect; your selections coordinator; your project manager to include budget, schedule and banking relationships; your construction manager and field supervisor; and your general contractor. It’s a tremendous advantage to have the same person throughout...from the beginning of design to the completion of construction. This creates a very seamless process for the customer, reduces errors and miscommunication, provides effective cost control, and saves time and money.

I have a bachelor’s degree in architecture, 24 years experience in professional home design and 16 years experience in residential construction. My goal is to take care of you throughout the process, and to exceed your expectations for your new home. It can be a fun and exciting process, with your beautiful new home as the outcome.

Let’s do this together.

Sparrow Homes & Land is located in Longmont Colorado. The company focuses on development in Northern Colorado, and has projects in the following areas: Longmont, Berthoud, Erie, Boulder, Boulder County, Lafayette, Weld County, Thornton and Arvada.

The primary focus is new custom home construction and large remodel projects.

What's Different?

Meeting the needs of the customer and their budget...

...while also wearing many hats in the process. From the initial idea to the selection of every detail. Being consultant on the job site to managing the crew throughout the job. I avoid the telephone game by maintaining communication from the initial sketch phase with my client to the finished product.
