About Us

At Homes by Rolwes our custom home and remodeling projects are the result of a collaborative team effort of 3rd and 4th generation family members, that are part of a family which has a rich history and tradition of building homes in the St. Louis area. For more than 65 years the Rolwes name has been synonymous with vision, attention to detail and creativity in the design and construction of new homes.

Larry Rolwes has more than 45 years of experience in the home-building industry. Together with his two brothers they built many innovative and award-winning communities. Homes by Rolwes is dedicated to excellence in every phase of the building process. It shows in our architecturally distinctive and innovative designs, and in our desire to create homes that improve the quality of living for our homeowners. We work with you one on one to design and build the home of your dreams. We approach remodeling with the same commitment that we take toward building a new home. Our exceptional team effort, combined with a high level of professionalism, pride in workmanship and expert site management, has earned us a reputation for delivering a quality home-building or remodeling experience that meets your highest expectations for exceptional design, quality craftsmanship and affordable modern living.


"My husband and I found Larry Rolwes and our home lot to be pure serendipity!"

"We had had only ever dreamed of building and met Larry with the help of our realtor and our plan was born! The exterior design and details, and the inner layout of our home were met with experienced, yet flexible options that met our needs and wants. Larry had a wealth of experience building homes and a list of professional resources that assisted with building, electrical, plumbing and lighting, etc. He was willing to meet our particular need and truly helped our dreams become a reality and my husband and I are truly grateful to Larry and his team!"

"It is with our great pleasure to reflect on our amazing experience working with Larry Rolwes. We have just celebrated three years of living in a beautiful home Larry built. A few highlights that made our buying experience so memorable include the fact he kept his word and completed a significant amount of upgrades within a twenty-one day scheduled closing."

"We had just moved to the area and experienced challenges in finding a home in a desirable area, new construction and something a little more special than just a spec home. Larry delivered on all three criteria. Larry had reason to be proud of his accomplishments - from building a home that was not custom, or pre-sold to a buyer, and educated us during an open house on what made his home special.

Larry made what could have been a very stressful experience a manageable and engaging one. He is someone who will listen and work with you to find a mutually agreeable outcome. We have also appreciated his periodic “check-in” to see how things are going in the home and answer any questions. 

We are happy to recommend Larry for any building needs!!"

"We are often complimented, by complete strangers, that walk or drive by our home, on how beautiful the house looks." 

"Larry has assembled a very capable team of carpenters, plumbers, heating and cooling technicians, roofers, flooring installers and materials suppliers that provided the unmatched experience, timely suggestions and attention to detail that a truly custom designed home demands. Also, the time and confident thoughtfulness that Larry brought to the process was evident throughout the planning, design and construction phases of Our Home. Our Thanks to Larry and Team."

"My wife Mary and I contracted with Homes by Rolwes to build a Craftsman-style ranch home on a never previously developed piece of property in Old Town Florissant in the summer of 2016."

"The project began in the late fall of 2016 and was completed the end of March 2017.

Our home, from design to structure and quality has been a model of professionalism, a measurable piece of craftsmanship, a source of excitement for the vibrancy of our community and a reflection of the integrity in those involved in the build as employees of or vendors for Homes by Rolwes.

As a retired Pharmacist who previously owned a Pharmacy in Florissant I have had many business contacts and professional interactions with patients and business people all over North County. I can tell any prospective client of Larry Rolwes, without hesitancy, that they will be dealing with a man of character, honesty, truthfulness, and passion in all aspects of his business and family.

Your wisdom will be reflected in using and taking advantage of his many constructive services."
