About Us

Quality, Communication, Integrity

High Caliber Homes began in 2006 on the slopes of Moonlight Basin ski resort in Big Sky, Montana. High Caliber Homes was formed by Tim Taranto and Tom Hobson, combining their extensive building and business experience into a strong partnership. We are not paper contractors- we are, and always have been, onsite, on-the-job builders. Our projects range from homes for first time buyers to custom ski-in ski-out luxury properties. We are proud of our homes and our references will be happy to speak with you. We are service oriented and are completely accountable to you throughout all phases of the building process. Building is our passion and we love getting to know the people who trust us with their single most important purchase. 


Specializing in custom homes, we built luxurious ski-in ski-out homes in Big Sky. As the years went on, we began building speculative and custom homes throughout the Gallatin and Madison Valleys. We build it all, no matter the shape, size or cost- from smaller 1st homes to luxurious ski-in ski-out masterpieces on the mountain. Building every home the right way is what we do best. We never cut corners, we do it right. We have been in Southwest Montana for over 10 years and our reputation speaks for itself. The team we have at HCH is a great combination of knowledge, experience, professionalism and a love for building peoples' dream homes.


We pride ourselves on knowing that every client is in a home they can be proud of, and a home that has been built to the highest standards. We believe there are two aspects to building homes: the first is building a QUALITY home and the second is developing a long-lasting relationship with our homebuyers. Keeping our customers happy and worry-free during all stages of their home purchase is what sets us apart from other builders. We don't just build homes, we build relationships.

What People Say

Jeff H.

As the Chief Financial Officer for a national commercial builder and warehousing firm, I can truly appreciate the business and building skills of High Caliber Homes. I have been very pleased and impressed.

Kathryn Kelly

Tim Taranto built our house as if he were building his own. He took no short cuts and used the best materials. He was always open to suggestions and patient with our crazy ideas. He took those ideas, improved on them and made them work beautifully. He was totally honest, more than fair and great at keeping costs in check. He is a superb craftsman and is service oriented.

He worked with us to totally re-design the house when we discovered that our new house plan was too small AFTER the old house had been taken down, necessitating a major reworking of the plan and square footage addition. This was accomplished in a matter of days, not weeks! He was able to work brilliantly with the parts of the old house that we saved, incorporating them into the new house seamlessly. He finished our house on time and on budget. His service and help after completion have been superb. He gave us a beautiful HOME that we love and will enjoy for many years to come. If we were going to build another house tomorrow, we wouldn't even think of another builder. Tim Taranto is the best!

Nate & Katie Laslovich

When building our custom home it was important for us to find a builder we could trust, both with our budget and the quality of construction. High Caliber Homes delivered on all fronts and exceeded our expectations. In addition to staying on budget, we couldn't have been happier with the process, communication, and ultimately the superior quality of our new home. High Caliber Homes represents honesty, excellent workmanship, and exceptional customer service. We would recommend High Caliber Homes to anyone interested in building.
