Our Story

Hayden Homes has been building high-quality, value-driven homes for 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 and knowhow you want in an on-your-land homebuilder.

Our Dedicated Team

We recognize excellence in home building 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 homebuilding 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.
