Our Review

Editor's Rating
Editorial ReviewDickinson Homes is a good modular home provider that produces great value homes for low and high end budgets. They do build in significant energy efficient components in their home which is good since it can be very cold in Wisconsin and Michigan. Another positive item is that they are smaller which allows them to focus on your home and make sure it receives their attention. Their president is an architect and structural engineer which give us high confidence knowing that someone like him is leading this company. We feel confident that Dickinson Homes will satisfy modular home buyers within their delivery range.

Personal Reviews of Dickinson Homes

Susan Markert from Kingsford, MI
I lived in a model in Kingsford and loved it! I would build another with them in Minnesota if I could!

Gerry Markowicz from Indian River, MI
Beyond expectations. They helped putting our ideas and dreams into reality , then moved it 150 miles and put it together. Then one of their super builders finished it

Peter from Marquette, MI
We had our home built a few years ago. My wife and I are still happy with our decision to go with Dickinson and enjoyed our first building experience. The staff and workforce were very professional and we could tell that the carpenter crew really took pride in their work. Very well insulated and tight and we have been surprised by our lower utility costs in the winter. They do live up to their exceptional reputation.

Tom g from Armstrong creek wi
Totally disappointed with the entire process and our project manager who is the owners son. So little care to us as a customer. Communication was non-existent after countless calls and emails. Dishonest with prices and quotes. Late. The product seems ok, but would not recommend using this builder.

Bob & Yvonne from Fisher lake Wisc
We had our ranch built in 2011.The workmanship was complete quality and so was the materials they used when building.We were very impressed with the low cost for heating in the winter.Dickinson did all the planning from start to finish.My wife & I are very happy with our new home and if we would love to do it all over again,we would go thru Dickinson again.Also the price was reasonable and Dickinson stands behind there work.

Eric from Marquette, MI
Worked with the Iron Mountain office. We brought in our own design and Dickinson Homes worked with us on it. They managed the entire project which took a huge burden off of our shoulders. Was impressed by their design ability and construction knowledge. We love our home!

jim hausmann from marquette, mi
Dickinson Homes has done wonders for us. They built our dream house. Dickinson homes is very easy to work with. They understood my ideas and my dreams come true.

Paul Gieser from Champion, MI
Solid, high quality construction without shortcuts on time or materials. We moved in in 2008 (a bit behind schedule....) and we are very pleased. All the people at Dickinson were great. We felt like family members .....and remember to have donuts on hand at certain times!

Tom & Karrin Orler from Vulcan, MI
They are a fabulous company! We decided to move back to MI and we handled the entire process long distance. Their communication was great! The product is unreal! We have now lived in our home for 4 years, and it is rock solid. The customer service is not what you expected from a home builder - they treat you like family! We would provide a couple of pictures how we would want something, and they would completely understand what we wanted. They met all delivery dates without any issues. All of their employees were timely and always completed the task as requested. We would highly recommend Dickinson Homes for a new home or an addition to your present company.

Josh Edwards from Kingsford, MI
Friendly, professional staff. Home was built five years ago and my wife and I are very happy, and have received many compliments from friends and neighbors. As a member of a family business, I enjoyed working with a true family owned and operated builder.

Elizabeth Britton from sands township
