Northwest Indiana’s Premier Residential Builders

Vater Construction has been proudly serving the northwest Indiana community for nearly a decade. With a true love for building, the business started out with a focus on residential carpentry. Over the years, word of mouth and a strong reputation of quality craftsmanship and professionalism led the company to expand to large-scale remodeling projects and eventually, new construction homes.

In addition to being one of few construction companies in Northwest Indiana with experience in Universal Design, owners Eric and Anne Vater are among a small group of builders in the immediate area who hold both the Certified Aging-In-Place Specialists (CAPS) and Certified Green Professionals (CGP) designations through the National Association of Home Builders.

Focusing on the accessibility of homes started as a necessity. In 1999, Anne Vater became disabled as a result of a car accident. The challenges she faced living with a disability in a traditional home presented an opportunity to learn about accessible products and design features, and reveled a lack of expertise in the knowledge and execution of accessible solutions.

Both Anne & Eric earned their CAPS designations and began building a new home with all of the features to meet her current and future needs. Countless hours were spent with contractors and designers to plan and build spaces that were aesthetically pleasing and would remain functional over time. They have since streamlined this process and incorporate these attributes in all projects and designs.

Vater Construction continues to build a portfolio of plans to meet the needs of your family. Whether remodeling or building a new home, they have an exceptional team of architects and designers who can help guide you through the process and make sure that you will be happy with your home for years to come.

Dino and Rebecca Spiridis

In 2003 I was diagnosed with MS. By 2014 I was using a wheelchair and having trouble getting in and out of our house. A relative told us about Vater Construction and how they specialized in building accessible homes for people with disabilities. We eventually saw a presentation by Vater Construction at a MS self-help meeting. After seeing their presentation, we contacted them.
For years we kept notes of things we wanted in our dream home. We met Eric and Anne with a binder full of notes and pictures. They took our ideas, added suggestions to make sure the house would be user friendly for me, and made our dream home a reality. My husband and I often say how much we love our home.

After much debate and review, we decided that because of Vater Construction’s core values, customer reviews, and unprecedented pursuit to deliver a quality product on time, they were our obvious choice for the building of our new custom home. Backed up by their efforts to use the industry’s best materials and products reassured our hearts.

Eric worked well with us, as well as our architect, to help us finalize our drawings and move forward. We were seamlessly guided through a process in which we selected quality materials and finishes from Local, very knowledgeable, and helpful experts. Eric’s wife Annie worked great with my wife on helping select fixtures, finishes, and even input that helped with paint selections!!

With construction beginning in the last week of October of ‘19, our dream home was delivered on time, mid-May, one week prior to the birth of our baby boy! All through the heart of a harsh Winter. Vater Construction made the building process easy, and their strive for quality, and customer satisfaction makes them Best in Class. Our doors are open for those who would like to view the quality workmanship, attention to detail, and care that goes into every VC Home!! We’ve walked plenty- they all look the same- impeccable.. Thank You Eric and Annie for making out Family smile when we pull in our driveway!
