About Us

Actually, it isn't about us... it's about you.

The Home Builders Association of the Sioux Empire (HBASE) is one of the largest HBA's in the nation with over 1,000 members strong (includes Affiliates) and we could not have done that alone. The two groups that have built us up to what we are today are members and consumers.

You... the HBASE member

Because of your continued support, we are able to offer a vast array of member benefits. From educational offerings to social gatherings and legislative advocacy to regulating building codes, we have what you need and we're ready to provide it to you. You make our association run through your countless volunteer hours whether you serve on a committee or help out at a community project. You are the association, you are the HBASE.

You... the consumer

We are very grateful to live in such a supportive and embracing community such as the Sioux Empire. While serving the South Dakota counties of Minnehaha, Lincoln, McCook and Turner, you look to us to provide you information about homeownership. Why buy a home instead of rent? We can tell you why. Why use an HBASE member for your projects instead of attempting a DIY? We can most certainly tell you why! Also, your support of our major events since 1956 has been absolutely amazing. From our Home Show to the Parade of Homes and all others in between, we are forever appreciative for the many times you've attended our shows and shared the countless compliments on how incredible our members truly are.
