We are a custom home builder - meaning that we build the house you want on the land you choose (serving mostly Licking County and areas east of Columbus, OH). We can help you with a new home or a custom pole barn (with or without finished living spaces). You can come to us with your prints or we can work together with an architect to create them with you. We work with clients who want us to build the entire thing, as well as those wanting to do some of the work themselves. We are flexible to fit what you need, when you need it, and within a budget that makes sense for you. As our name implies, we value truth and reflect that in our openness with our pricing and process of building your home.
I'm Dan Ossman and I have the privilege of living life with four beautiful girls - Melissa, Grace, Quinn and Ruth. We founded our custom-built home company, True Way Homes in Granville, Ohio. Our personal and professional vision is to steward God’s resources through the process of building functional, beautiful homes that foster a purposeful family life.
We started our house-building journey by building our own home, so we know what it is like to want high-quality workmanship while remaining within a reasonable budget and timeframe. We had the time of our lives building our house, and we hope to make it an enjoyable process for our clients as well.
In 2013, we started our construction adventure by buying land to build our first home. We built a shop first and then dove into building the house - living the camper life during the summer, and moving in with the in-laws during the times the water was freezing in the camper (we found there are limitations to our adventurous spirits). My dad taught me how to lay every block in the basement, which is a memory I'll always cherish. Then through researching and watching many seasoned professionals, I learned to assemble each piece of our house from the ground up.
My background in furniture design, rehabs, 3-D modeling, and cabinetry helps bring a custom element to all of our projects. We are flexible to build as you wish and we would love to take a look at your unique ideas. We hope we can lend a hand in the building of your dream and help you find joy as we create your functional, beautiful new home together.
"It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home."

Check out our tiny house! We had a blast building this house on wheels that we built with healthy building materials (low-VOC, natural, low-EMF, etc.). This is currently being rented to a family and will be up for sale soon.
