People are behind everything we do

Japan, 1960. Sekisui House opens its doors as a residential developer and homebuilder, driven by a love of humanity and the audacious idea that home should be more than where people live—that it should be the happiest place on earth. In 1995, the SHAWOOD brand was born of this vision—with the mission of redefining what homes should be.

Not just a new place to live. A new way to live.

Simply put, we believe a home should go beyond protecting you and your family from the elements, to actively enriching your life. Today, Sekisui house is the largest homebuilder in the world, and SHAWOOD is its flagship brand. With more than 85,000 homes under our belt, we’ve mastered the craft of building homes focused on family, while building a sustainable future.

When does a house become a home?

The way we see it, a house becomes a home when it’s built on a foundation of what’s important to and moves you—your lifestyle, priorities, needs, desires and aspirations. We’ll help you bring that picture into sharp detail through research and design, then apply our proprietary precision technology, production processes, construction techniques and end-to-end quality control system to make sure the home we build is the home you’re expecting. We’ll do it all under one roof, and with a single-minded goal—to make your home the happiest place in the world.
