About us

Valiant Custom Homes is a custom home builder serving the East Tennessee area, with a focus on Tellico Village. We have built our reputation on a hands-on approach, reliability, and professionalism.

We firmly believe that establishing a relationship based on communication and trust is paramount to achieving success. Our philosophy centers around the belief that your project is our project; we will take this journey with you and walk you through each step of the process, from the initial designs to the finishing touches. As custom home builders, we ensure that every aspect of the home is uniquely yours. You will find that working with us is as unique an experience as your home will be. We pride ourselves on being communicative, timely, and totally hands-on.

Our Work

Every home we build is different — so why should every customer experience be the same?

At Valiant Custom Homes, we provide more than just high-quality materials and exceptional workmanship. Our number one goal is to deliver a positive experience to every single one of our customers.

We recognize that no two homes are the same, and every customer has specific needs. That’s why we’re with you every step of the way to give you an experience as unique and personalized as your new home.

That being said, our materials, methods, and systems are second to none. We invite you to review our materials sheet that explains this in greater detail, but, to sum it up, we believe that going the extra mile results in a product that cannot be duplicated.



Integrity is the foundation upon which we build trust with you, our homeowners. No two custom home builds are the same and each will likely experience different issues. Should an issue arise, we promise to keep you in the loop, give you the full story, and treat you like we treat family. After all, our reputation is built on satisfied customers.


We are dedicated to building quality homes that both ourselves and you as the client will be proud of. We understand that it’s often the small details that make the biggest impression and believe that your home should be built with quality materials down to the last nail. We invite you to enlist the help of our interior architect, as well, to finish out your design. We also make conscious decisions to ensure our homes are as energy efficient as possible.

About the Builders

Steve Naab

For Steve, building is in his blood. Originally from Fort Lauderdale, Steve was born into a construction family. His family is a robust mix of architects, engineers, planners, and builders, and his own background is heavy in customer services and sales. After co-founding a family business providing affordable single family rentals, Steve decided to get back to his roots and team with Ryan Hansen to form Valiant Custom Homes. His unique combination of construction and customer service skills has allowed Valiant Custom Homes to provide an unrivaled customer service experience.

Ryan Hansen

Ryan is a seasoned entrepreneur. Originally from Texas, Michigan, and Illinois, Ryan settled in beautiful East TN and soon lead the drive to bring a high revenue restaurant chain to the area. After building, opening, and staffing numerous locations, Ryan partnered with Steve Naab to found Valiant Custom Homes. He feels strongly that every home the team builds will be different and every customer service experience should reflect the uniqueness and individuality of both the build and the client.
