Meet the man behind it all.

Growing up in a family of contractors, Don Tanninen developed his passion for construction at an early age.  He was introduced to the world of construction when he began helping his father build custom homes in Clark County, Washington in the 1980s. Throughout his early years, he was instilled with the values of hard work, honesty and integrity and started his first construction company Tanninen Masonry Inc. in 1994.

In 2010, Don and his brother collaborated and successfully brought dozens of new homes to the Tri-Cities area.  Over the years, Don has always listened to what was important to homeowners.  He felt the home building industry was becoming a world of “upgrades” for perspective home buyers.  With his experience in the industry and his passion for building, he created a company that offers customers an unparalleled value by blending thoughtful design and high level craftsmanship with quality features and finishes.  Stellar Homes is the pinnacle of his vision and expertise.

My passion is building you the home of your dreams. -Don Tanninen

With over a decade of experience as a premier home builder in the Tri Cities, we know what matters to you most.  Our obsession with being the best in the industry has resulted in an extensive attention to detail and our promise of well-planned living spaces with quality craftsmanship throughout.  The price that is listed on many new homes today, often represent a stripped down version, and can be lacking in even basic features.  You won’t find that in Stellar Homes.  Of course there are available options to upgrade, we don’t want to limit buyers on the ability to build their perfect home, but each of our homes are designed to include every feature that, we believe, a potential buyer would want or need.  We invite you to look at our standard features list and compare.

At Stellar Homes we are always looking for ways to push boldly into the future, with eco-friendly features, innovative home design and construction that is highly functional, adaptable and efficient.  We are truly passionate about our industry and build every home with the buyer in mind. A place where you can relax, live worry free and build the memories that will last a lifetime.
