Imagine a home building company that researches the land, walking it and comparing it with others, long before they purchase it for development. Then that same builder places such strong mindfulness on everything below the ground and behind the walls to the beautiful finishes and fixtures seen within a home ensuring superior completion. Even more so, imagine a team of key people that helps every homeowner from start to finish while prioritizing the integrity of those they work with just as much as the homes they build.
We are that home builder. We are Havyn Homes.

Meet Our Owner
Havyn Homes may seem ‘new,’ yet we are anything but that. Our builder, founder, and CEO, Michael Graniczny, established Havyn in 2022 after more than 20 years of leading and owning residential building companies throughout Northwest Indiana and the Chicago, IL suburbs. We know him as ‘Mike the Builder’ and our homeowners know him as the nice guy that builds excellent homes, no matter the size.
From the first home he built and every one that he has created since, Michael strives for the best execution as if he were building his personal home every time. His background was working for family in various trades here and there, even learning more about home building from his father at an early age. In his early twenties, Michael, with his father and brother, began his first company as a home builder in the South suburbs of Chicago. He was not afraid to get his hands dirty and he was eager to grow and learn anything he could. This is what he considers his education in life. As the business changed, and eventually the 2008 recession hit, Michael’s company drastically changed, as well. More like disappeared. Rather than throw in the home building towel, Michael worked wherever he could while planning his next home building venture. In 2011, and with a new family partnership, his second home building company was born. Michael made old school and new school deals when purchasing land and supplies along with learning new installation techniques of the trade. Those deals and techniques created beautiful homes that not only won various awards and accolades, but also named Michael one of the top 40 Under 40 recipients in 2015 by Professional Builder magazine.
Michael moved the company from Frankfort, IL to St John, IN because of the future and opportunity he saw in the surrounding communities. Always looking ahead, a strong brand and image of impeccably built homes was created by his newly growing team. Northwest Indiana, and even a little bit into Southwest Michigan, became the sweet spot for building. As more change occurred within the business and new opportunities presented themselves, so did the creation of Havyn Homes. Rather than continue to try to reinvent the wheel, Michael chooses to lead a team that brings their unique talents to the table to build the best homes for each homeowner every time.
That is why we love being a part of Havyn Homes.
