Hinman Builders & Developers excels at building custom homes throughout Connecticut. As a third-generation builder, Dana Hinman leverages decades of insights to create homes that are energy efficient, technologically smart, architecturally innovative, and filled with his clients’ dreams. 

Dana has developed more than 50 luxury homes and multiple subdivisions across five Connecticut counties. 

“I grew up around it and it was always in my blood,” Dana says. “When I finished school, I just jumped into it feet first.”  

Due to his passion for home building and impressive experience, Dana is extremely in tune with what discerning clients are looking for when building a custom home that meets their every need and desire. He has a truly exceptional talent for bringing a client’s vision to life, whether implementing their fully formed ideas or helping them pull down an imaginary blueprint from the ether. 

All he needs is a single picture to get the process in motion and then he can take care of everything else, from land acquisition and financing to laying the foundation, installing irrigation, and special ordering custom finishes. 

Dana is an exceptional listener who makes it his mission to ensure clients have fun when building their dream home, firmly believing they should enjoy every moment of the process and get everything they want. Clients find Dana’s infectious energy, enthusiasm and creativity inspiring, and his expertise reassuring. 

“Building a home with a client is a fun, two-way partnership, and I like to believe I can offer them a happier experience than any other builder.” 

In his spare time, Dana is an avid water and snow-skier, as the former Water Skiing Junior World Jump Champion. He currently lives in Avon, Connecticut with his other half Erin, their baby boy Levi, and 6-year-old Goldendoodle, Daisy.
