About Image

The Sietsma family has been building homes for six generations.  In 2004, Avtec Homes founder, Larry Sietsma set his sights on creating affordable, energy-efficient homes for the people of Brevard County, Florida.  He had already begun one of the nation’s largest and most respected home building companies 20 years prior, with more than 10,000 homes in Brevard alone.

Together with his daughter, LEED Certified Sandi Forest, they launched a home building company that combined personal values with genuine affordability and beautiful energy-efficient designs; for savings to benefit the homebuyer far into the future. With that, the Eco-StarSM High Performance Home was born.

Building a home requires extraordinary teamwork and quality control.  Avtec uses only local trades and craftsmen who live where they work and stand behind their quality workmanship.  Open every day but Sunday, Avtec Homes empowers its staff to work together from start to finish to ensure the best possible building experience for each home buyer.  That includes building on your property or ours, making the changes you want and adding the options that turn a great floor plan into your home.

Our hand-picked team of top performing professionals want to build a better life for you.
