About Academy Homes
Academy Homes is a local Cedar Rapids based Design/Build Construction company, members of the National & Local Association of Home Builders .We build between 12-18 new homes a year, specializing in the $200,000- $500,000 price range. With Academy Homes the customer is able to work directly with the owner himself, Shawn Bodensteiner. This eliminates the cross talk, confusion and mistakes that can often happen between crew leaders or project managers and company owners, helping to make your project worry & hassle free! This also keeps the consumer’s price lower by eliminating the extra payroll- something everybody can appreciate and we find this to add great value. 100% satisfaction is our main goal! Happy customers are customers for life, and they are the building blocks of a successful company as well. (Please refer to the customer testimonial page.).

Academy Homes uses only finest local craftsman and top quality suppliers. Helping to ensure that money is turned back into our local economy and school system as well as helping to retain jobs in our area. We care as much about the environment as you by practicing “green” building techniques. By recycling all cardboard products and transferring all usable material from jobsite to jobsite, we can minimize waste that goes to the landfill and reduce our carbon footprint. Academy Homes also uses recycled wood products in the framing of the home as well. Shawn is at the project everyday ensuring everything is done right and to the highest standard.


Save, Save, Save!
Building lower priced, high efficiency homes is one of our main missions. We start by using top quality windows that use argon gas filled, insulated glass. Then add top-rated Carrier brand high- efficiency heating and cooling system with sealed ductwork. Next, all wood penetrations are spray foamed to stop any air infiltration in unwanted areas. The icing on the cake is our incredible net & blow insulation system. It provides great sound deadening properties and over 21% better R-value than standard insulation, not to mention it EXCEEDS local energy star requirements. This combination of features provide great value and lowered utility bills ensuring you get to keep more of your hard earned money. Now that’s something to smile about!

The Good Stuff
Academy Homes’ standard features are practically unbeatable! Many homebuilders strip down or offer few options from the start allowing them to upgrade through the building process to drive up their profits, We prefer to give as many of the popular upgrades as possible from the start to help you maximize your investment and reduce overruns. This philosophy has helped us become a very popular and competitive builder. Knowing you don’t have to pay more to get more is a great feeling! Please refer to our feature page for details.
