Our Story - Diyanni Homes

The Diyanni family started their company in the 1970’s as a construction company called 5-Brothers They had always worked together as a family learning the skills in construction from their father who ingrained in them the foundational truths of Honesty, Integrity, and Respect based on biblical principles.

The success they experienced from the beginning also came from their strong work ethic, and quality craftsmanship characteristic of their Italian roots. As the company grew over years solely focusing on building beautiful custom homes the name was changed to Diyanni Homes.

  • Since 1979, Diyanni Homes has been an innovator in the housing industry. We’ve won many awards for our homes, including the BIA Parade of Homes “People’s Choice Award" several years in a row.

In 1979, the Diyanni family moved to Ohio where we opened a small construction company called 5 Brothers.


Through the 1980s, we started building homes in the Columbus area. We worked together and built one house at a time from the ground up. We did everything! From laying footers to putting the final coat of paint on the wall, we had hands-on experience with every aspect of building a home.


During the 1990s, we started to grow. Our success allowed us to buy our own land and build our first model home. We turned the garage and basement into offices, and we all worked from there. We slowly hired one trade at a time to help with the workload, allowing us to expand and build more than one house at a time.


At the turn of the millennia, we expanded into building several new communities throughout central Ohio. In each community we built our own model home. We also bought our first office building in Columbus, Ohio.


Over the past ten years we have sold out of all of our community homes, and have started to concentrate on building custom homes on land owned by our customers. We completed our latest custom home model in Sunbury, Ohio. As we move toward 2020, we are now expanding into the Cleveland and Cincinnati markets.


At Diyanni Homes, we are custom home builders who aim to make the building process as stress-free as possible for you--the owner! Learn about the steps it takes to build your home, from the planning stage to moving in.
