New Color Collection | CBH Designers

CBH Designers here! We want to give you guys a peek into our new Interior Color Collections that will be available in our CBH Homes this Fall. We are absolutely in love with the new collection and we couldn’t wait any longer to share it with you!

We kept the Simply White, Warm Gray, and Rustic Bronze color palettes that we love, while taking them up a notch and incorporating more color variation throughout the different packages. Here is a little bit of what you’ll be seeing in the new collection.

Rustic Bronze 2

Rustic Bronze will incorporate true rustic tones. We used rich dark flooring in two of the packages and we have also incorporated stunning new quartz counter tops in some of the packages as well. This collection will be rustic with modern elements such as a gray subway tile or a mosaic glass & tile back splash. This is Lisa Reinhart, our lead designers, favorite collection!

Warm Gray 2


Our new Warm Gray collection has playful new quartz and laminate counter tops. We really wanted to capture warm gray tones in the flooring and counter tops with a hint of white to be sure to keep the space bright and inviting.

The CBH Homes Designers

Looking for some handy design tips? Here they are!


Here at CBH Homes, we’re proud. Proud of our team. Proud of all the beautiful homes we’ve built. Proud of all our homeowners in the CBH Family. And proud of our ratings.

With over 19,250 homeowners and in business for 27 years, CBH has had a Better Business Bureau file since 1993. Over the past 25 years, our CBH BBB rating has been an A. In the past 3 years we’ve had 3,801 closings and 13 BBB complaints which is .3% of the total homeowners during that period.

In our most recent BBB complaint, we dropped the ball. 

We recently lost our BBB accreditation due to a no response to a complaint. We’ll be the first to tell you. We messed up. But we’re also here to tell you that there’s more. They are correct in that we didn’t respond to the BBB complaint, but instead went directly to the homeowner and proceeded to address her issues. While ratings are important, our first priority is always the homeowner and to address the issue plus act in a timely manner.

We’ve responded to all BBB complaints but the last one got away from us. The BBB dropped our rating from an A to a B- and revoked our accreditation due to failure to respond to the complaint in a timely manner. 

CBH Homes takes complaints very seriously and we have been working diligently with Ms. Dominguez from early 2019 through May 2nd, 2019 to resolve these items. Our warranty department worked closely on this homeowner’s warranty request to schedule contractors and make sure all items of concern were documented, addressed, and resolved. On May 2nd the warranty items were deemed resolved and closed in our system. It was just recently brought to our attention that not all of the items were complete and we’ve been in contact with the homeowner to address. 

Why does all this matter?

We want to be as transparent as possible and let everyone know that we care. We care a lot. We care about our BBB rating. We care about our homeowners. We care about our community. CBH Homes isn’t perfect but we work diligently to get better and address any issues that may arise. 

One thing we know for sure, we have a Google rating of 4 stars with 76 of those being  5 star reviews. We hire a third party, Avid Ratings, to survey every homeowner after they close. Our Avid rating is a 4.2 with over 50% of those being a full 5 stars. Did we mention that we have 0% 1 stars? 

On top of all this, we won a National Housing Quality Award in 2017. 

The fact is, we love what we do and we’ll be here doing it for years to come. 

As always, we’re here for you. For any questions, please email us at

Love wins,

Corey Barton, President/owner

Meet the Designers | CBH Homes

Have you been wondering who’s behind the beautiful homes at CBH? Well, here’s your opportunity to meet the designers!

CBH Homes Designers - New Home Construction in Boise

Lisa - CBH Homes DesignerLisa Reinhart | Design Manager

Lisa grew up in Southern California and was introduced at an early age to art and design – oil painting, decorating, and painting her room as a tween were always encouraged.  Lisa studied art history in college and could be found most days visiting art museums and painting live seascapes with her classmates. She moved to Boise in 1999 where she embraced her entrepreneurial spirit, creating Sagebrush by Lisa, a decorative painting business.  After a few years of painting residential homes, she was introduced to CBH Homes. She started decorative painting for them, which then led to staging homes, before she was hired as a full-time design consultant. Lisa has developed a well trained eye for color and design and embraces the opportunity to bring this to each and every CBH Home.

Favorite Design Style | Modern Rustic Farmhouse

Fixer Upper’s Chip and JoJo have had a heavy influence on Lisa’s style approach which she has incorporated into many of the interiors of our CBH Homes. Lisa loves the rustic charm and simplicity of the Farmhouse style while mixing natural textures and materials like wood or galvanized steel for a more modern spin.  She loves the idea of taking various eclectic styles and creating a cohesive look using colors and texture, while carefully gathering interesting elements that all work together. She has a passion for emphasizing well-used and loved items and adding a little pop of color, while mixing comfortable furniture with salvaged material that make you want to put your feet up and stay awhile. This informal elegance brings a unique take on comfort and simplicity creating an aura that could make anyone feel at home. A neutral color palette is a crucial part of any modern design, and including one in a farmhouse inspired space will take this look to a fresh, clean, and totally current vibe!


When Lisa isn’t playing with tile samples and color swatches, she can be found enjoying time with her hot husband!  They love traveling, listening to live music, attending sporting events , watching lots of HGTV and trying out new restaurants.  Shopping plays a huge role as well. Lisa loves purchasing the latest fashion finds and is always looking for new and fresh decor for her home which she can find at local antique and boutique shops in town.

Chelsea - CBH Homes DesignerChelsea Davis | Design Coordinator

Chelsea’s passion for interior design started when decorating her first apartment. She has found so much joy in it ever since. She loves design that is functional, timeless, and incorporates design elements that are both new and old. Chelsea believes everyone’s home should be a place they are excited to spend time with family and friends. A space that is filled with special memories, milestones, and so much love.

Favorite Design Style: Modern Country

Chelsea’s favorite design elements are classic and sophisticated with a country flair. She loves neutral color palettes such as whites and beiges, with pops of color and rustic elements. She loves decorating with vintage furniture and mixing in fun patterns and textures. Chelsea loves a timeless design that tells a story of those whose home it is.


In Chelsea’s spare time you’ll find her spending time with her fiance’ and their goldendoodle. They love doing projects around their home or spending time outdoors. In the summer months you will find them relaxing in Garden Valley or outside on a patio. She thinks a perfect Saturday includes browsing an antique store or TJ Maxx to find special furniture pieces and stylish decor.

CBH Homes has been named and best place to work in Idaho for 8 years and counting. We’re not a stuffy home builder, we like to have fun and our people to have fun. On top of all that we’re changing the way people live.

Ronda Conger, Vice President of CBH Homes said, “We’re making a difference in people’s lives. We firmly believe that we build dreams. We’re building a place where people start families, raise their children make memories and more. Who wouldn’t want to be apart of that?”
