Larren Novak is the President of Novak & Novak Home Builders, Inc. He was fortunate to learn the building trade from two master builders, his father and grandfather, who started the business in 1946. Larren took over the company in 1991. The main focus of the company through the years has been customer service with an emphasis on building lasting relationships with the client and the tradesmen.

Larren has been involved in all phases of the construction process from site layout, input on home design, pouring concrete foundations and flatwork, framing, sheet rocking, installation of hardwood floors to all aspects of the finish trim work. His company has had the opportunity to work with clients on remodels, new custom homes, spec homes and light commercial tenant improvements.

It has been through this time that Novak & Novak Home Builders has become the premier builder in the Magic Valley area of Southern Idaho. Larren has developed a keen sense of honesty and integrity that has earned him the trust and respect from his fellow builders.

Larren committed to give back to the industry and became actively involved with the Magic Valley Builders Association in 1992, the Idaho Building Contractors Association in 1993, and the National Association to Home Builders in 1999. He went on to serve in the following areas.
