Our Story

Hayden Homes has been building high-quality, value-driven homes for over 30 years. Prior to 2009, we were often asked to build Hayden homes on land outside our communities. This was the beginning of Simplicity. A company that holds the same value of building affordable quality housing, but for customers who own land or are looking to purchase land. Today, we offer a wide variety of efficiently designed residential, workforce and investor housing plans, for our price-conscious, value-driven customers throughout the Pacific Northwest. With years of building experience and an extremely dedicated team, we have the expertise you want in an on-your-land homebuilder.

Our Dedicated Team

We recognize excellence in homebuilding begins with a talented team. That’s why we take great pride in hiring knowledgeable, dedicated employees that live our mission of building value-driven, high-quality homes and providing an unparalleled customer experience every day. We’ll work collaboratively with you to create a dream home and guide you through the home building journey with honesty, integrity, and respect.

Our Passion is to Give as You Go

Our team members have incredibly generous spirits. 90% of our team contributes to the not-for-profit organization, First Story, which was established to provide homeownership to deserving families in communities in which we build. They live and breathe our philosophy of Give as You Go.
