We are a custom builder that can help you with a new home, garage, pole barn, or accessory structure. We also offer consulting services if you want to be your own general contractor on your new build project. We serve mostly Licking County and areas east of Columbus, Ohio. You can come to us with your blueprints or we can work together with an architect to create them with you. We make it a point to be more flexible and available than the larger home builders. As our name implies, we value truth and reflect that in our openness with our pricing and process of building and consulting.
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."
Take a look at some of our past work in the galleries below (click on the photo to open it in full screen mode before scrolling with the arrows). We included pictures from new builds that were in-progress as well as some completed ones.
We had so much fun creating this one - 28 feet long, sleeps up to 6 people, and built with non-toxic building materials. It is a beautiful unit that would be great as an additional dwelling - a fun "extra" space to have on your property for your own friends/family. Or you could set it up as an awesome turn-key Airbnb rental.
PRICE: $80,000 (includes delivery fee within Ohio)
DETAILS: It has a large kitchen with a 4-burner cooktop, refrigerator, and stainless steel countertops. The inside is finished with white shiplap and waterproof LVP flooring. It has two lofts - one is accessed via a staircase and the other uses a ladder. Ready for composting toilet hookup (and could be modified for flushable toilet). There is an ERV system to keep the air inside fresh and circulated. The outside is metal board and batten siding and a metal standing seam roof. Built on an Iron Eagle triple axle, bumper pull trailer engineered specifically for a tiny house.
Paint, clear coat, plywood, flooring, insulation, and caulking are all zero or ultra-low VOC (VOC are the toxic off-gases in conventional products).
Shielded electric wires and hardwired ethernet throughout the tiny house were used to reduce EMF exposure (electromagnetic frequencies).
