In business since 2001, Gateway is one of the largest, most respected home builders in southeast Wyoming. We have an experienced staff of more than 30 professionals — all focused on delivering quality craftsmanship and value — and we take great pride in meeting our clients’ needs. With Gateway, a great homebuying experience doesn’t end at close. We back our work with responsive warranty support long after the sale!

Yes! Gateway maintains model homes that allow prospective buyers to see the quality of our work, up close and personal. These models are staffed by members of our sales team. See our current model home locations and hours.

Our average build time from groundbreaking to closing is six months. However, this timeline can be affected by weather, material delays, homeowner availability, trade schedules and the complexity of a new build, to name a few. We are careful to keep our homeowners fully informed of any changes in the construction timeline.

With a semi-custom home, you’ll choose from our selection of popular floor plans. You can add options such as a finished basement and make changes such as expanding a room. You can also choose interior finishes such as cabinets and countertops. A semi-custom home is perfect if you want to select certain features of your home but don’t want to make every decision during the building process.

With a custom home, you have complete control over what your home will look like. It will be designed to your specifications and completely unique. Custom homes are great for buyers who know just what they want and enjoy participating in the decision-making process.

Gateway currently offers a selection of 18 floor plans that previous homebuyers have found most appealing. We can also work from an existing plan or design a fully custom plan.

Yes! If you want customization of a floor plan to meet your needs, let us know. Whether it’s removing a wall, adding a window or expanding a room, we are here to help you design and build your dream home.

We can help! Gateway typically maintains a small inventory of spec homes that are completed or under construction. You can view available homes or contact our sales team at (307) 509-0608 for more information.

Gateway builds homes on lots in desirable neighborhoods throughout the area. Learn about our current communities. We can also build on your own lot or land within our service area.

Yes, we will build on private lots and land within proximity to other projects we are working on. If you do not currently own land, our sales team can guide you through the steps of finding, purchasing and preparing land to build on. Each project may differ slightly in the construction process due to location and inspections.

There are hundreds of variables that influence the cost of a new build. Because of this, we cannot state a set price per square foot. Instead, we will work closely with you to help you get the most value within your budget.

If you need pricing for a custom build or a cost for modifying an existing Gateway home, such as finishing a basement, contact a member of our sales team at (307) 509-0608. They will meet with the appropriate project manager to get the pricing information you are looking for.

No. Unlike some building companies that require you to get a construction loan and later convert it to a mortgage, Gateway simplifies the process by carrying the construction loan. You only need a loan to buy the house upon completion. Learn more about financing a new home.

Our realtors have preferred lenders they work with and would be happy to make a recommendation based on your needs. Working with one of these preferred lenders can be beneficial as they offer their own incentives on Gateway homes! Contact our sales team at (307) 509-0608 for more information.

Give us a call at (307) 632-8950, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. You can also submit our online contact form with inquiries.
