Howard Mills

Howard founded Yellowstone Custom Country Homes in 1994 when he and his family moved to Montana. During the late 70’s he spent several years doing historical Victorian restoration and renovation on an old Hudson Valley resort located in the in the Shawangunk Mountains called the Mohonk Mountain House. Following that, he formed a residential building company located in the Catskill Mountains that specialized in timber frame and log home construction. After 15 years of residential home building he decided to move to Montana with his wife and four sons. In Montana, he has continued to build homes emphasizing fine craftsmanship. This has included log and timber frames as well as conventionally framed homes using timber and log accents. These homes often utilize recycled and reclaimed materials in their finishes. Howard and his wife, Kathleen, and our sons who have all worked together at one time or another. Yellowstone Custom Country Homes remains a family business with Howard and Kathleen’s oldest son, Wesley, now a full partner/owner.

When Linda and I moved to Montana from out of state to build our retirement home we were looking for a quality builder that truly cares about the customer. After meeting Howard and Wesley Mills of Yellowstone Custom Country Homes we knew we had found the right builder. They build as if they were building for themselves, paying attention to budget, details and quality. They hold themselves to the highest level of integrity and at no point in the building process did we ever feel any pressure.

Howard and Wesley find time for your every need as a client from detailed bidding, dealing with the highest quality sub-contractors and caring about the client after the home has been built. They visited building sites with us and provided sound advice on location of our “Top of the World Ranch”. They are with you every step of the way looking out for your interest and truly care about craftsmanship.

Linda and I would recommend Yellowstone Custom Country Homes as your builder for your dream home.
