Our Story

Learn more about Picklo Homes.

Terry Picklo founded Country Builders, Inc., a custom home builder, in 1981 after managing a lucrative lawn and garden management company.

He built a few speculative custom homes for the first two years, before deciding the custom home market was where he wanted to be.

Terry’s son Nick, who grew up working with the various trades, joined the company full time in the late 90s.

About Picklo Homes Custom Home Builder

Nothing Remains Constant

Except for Change

Change can bring growth, new beginnings, fresh perspectives, and better understanding.

Due to the company’s growth into new areas, in an effort to reach the broader custom home building and remodeling market, as well as to provide more robust services to customers, Country Builders Inc. decided to rebrand as Picklo Homes.

The rationale for this was twofold: First, we felt the “country” in Country Builders may mislead prospective clients to the conclusion the company builds only in the country or only country-style custom homes. Second, the name no longer continued to reflect the markets we now serve.

Having been raised in and around the custom home building industry, Nick has a wealth of knowledge that he eagerly shares with clients to aid in the arrival of each individual to their destination. Nick is a Certified Graduate Builder, a licensed Real Estate Broker, and has spent the last 20 years in the custom home building and remodeling industry as Vice President for Picklo Homes, as well as head of their marketing department.
