custom home builder in Bloomington, IN

About us

G&S Homes evolved from a working relationship in the building trades between Jeffrey Gustaitis and Mark Sovinski. Jeff and Mark both moved to Bloomington in the 1970's to complete their educations at Indiana University. Jeff graduated with a degree in Fine Arts, and Mark in Philosophy. In the late 70s they began working on construction projects together, and early in the 1980s they struck out on their own. Their experience as carpenters includes all phases of residential and commercial remodeling and new construction. In 1984 they developed their first of several residential communities, and since have built well over 300 homes in Bloomington and Monroe County.

Jeff and Mark both selected Bloomington as their permanent home because of the cultural diversity, high quality of community life, the arts and education available, the sports and recreation opportunities, and the safe small town atmosphere. Each met his wife in Bloomington, and both partners now have children in college. Jeff and Mark have made a real commitment to the Bloomington Community.

At G&S Homes our primary mission is to help our clients in achieving their goals. We do this by forming a relationship based on trust, honesty, and integrity. Of course we offer a complete design/build service, build a quality, energy efficient home, and practice exceptional customer service before, during, and after the building process. But it is our personalized attention with an eye to creatively solving problems that sets us apart. Our many success stories attest to this.

In 1992, 1996, and again in 2002, the Monroe County Building Association selected G&S Homes as Builder of the Year. In 2003 and in 2006, the Herald Times Reader's Choice Award of Favorite Homebuilder went to G&S Homes. Through the years, G&S Homes has received numerous awards for their homes entered in the MCBA Parade of Homes. We are proud members of the Better Business Bureau, the Bloomington Chamber of Commerce, the Professional Warranty Service Corporation, and the local, state, and national home building associations, and we participate in the Indiana Quality Assurance Builder Standards program.

Jeff and Mark believe in giving back to their community. Jeff has served on the Board of Directors of the MCBA, as well as the Indiana Builders Association. He has also served on the Board of Directors of Wonderlab and is a Lotus Festival volunteer. Mark has been a long time Board member of the MCBA, in 2005 served as President, is currently an IBA State Director, and holds the designations of Certified Graduate Builder, Graduate Master Builder, and Certified Green Professional. He has also volunteered in coaching numerous youth sports teams.

In 2006, 2008 and 2010 G&S Homes has been a participating builder in the Habitat for Humanity Builder's Blitz, where in Bloomington five Habitat homes were built in five days.
