Sherwood Homes has been a reputable and solid presence in Omaha’s home building industry for over 50 years!  Glen Palmer founded Sherwood Homes in the 1960’s and in 1989, Glen and Jerry Standerford partnered together to form Lane Building Corporation.

With a natural partnership and shared vision for quality home building, Lane Building Corp. and Sherwood Homes, Inc. have built their reputation for customer satisfaction and quality homes at competitive prices.  Our team understands that your home is an extension of your unique lifestyle and takes great pride in the details of your home’s design and construction by offering quality craftsmanship, personalized designs, and superior customer service.  You can trust that your home is in good hands and know that it will be built carefully, efficiently, and to the precise specifications of your vision.  We believe in offering the best value for your new home investment.  Why settle for less?

Why Choose Us?


We use only the most reliable and qualified subcontractors, agents, and staff.  We want you to have the peace of mind you need to relax and enjoy the excitement of building your home.  Our craftsmanship, quality materials, and a careful consideration for every room, amenity and fixture comes standard with our homes.  


With many home builders, you can experience countless delays before your home is really “done”, only to move in and find a trail of unfinished jobs left behind.  With Lane and Sherwood, your home is presented to you on time, and in many cases ahead of schedule, 100% complete!

Customer Satisfaction 

With more than 50 continuous years of experience building the finest homes throughout the Omaha metro area, we take pride in delivering your new home 100% complete, on time and on budget the way you envisioned.  Our passion for building better homes is evidenced by Jerry Standerford’s instrumental role in developing Omaha’s new, more stringent building codes.  We’ve designed our entire company around providing you a superb new home experience and are committed to helping you make wise and informed decisions for your busy lifestyle and dream living spaces.  


We provide you the best new home value.  It’s evident in our designs, craftsmanship, quality products and high level of included amenities.  We are also responsible for the construction financing, eliminating your liability and risk. Unlike some builders who require you to obtain construction financing yourself, interest does not start to accumulate before your home is completed and you are not liable for the property while your home is being built. With our innovative contingency financing option, you are not at risk financially if your current home does not sell while you build. Our long-term vendor relationships and utilizing builder pricing on materials and fixtures allow us to offer you more home features and options while keeping the overall cost of your home down.  

True Design Personalization 

Our agents and staff are here to offer expertise and resources to help guide you every step of the way.  Our numerous models allow you to walk through many of the home plans we offer, staffed by knowledgeable agents.   You’ll notice the difference in the details and the variety of option packages available for creating a more comfortable, efficient and beautiful home while our friendly Selections Coordinator will help you with the selections in our Personalization Studio.  For over 50 years we’ve helped thousands of happy customers build their dream homes and we will be there for you too!  


We use name-brand products with a proven reputation throughout your new home and we stand behind each home we build with one of the best new home warranties in the business.  A ProHome warranty and a structural warranty through 2-10 Home Buyer’s Warranty (HBW) are included with every home.  

Lot Inventory

We know that when building a home, location and neighborhood amenities are a major factor to consider.  With Lane and Sherwood, you can be confident that we will find you a lot to build on that is perfect for you.  We offer a wide range of lots around the metro area in our own personal inventory that will help your dream home become a reality.
