Eldon Homes Story

The Anderson family has called Stoughton home for over 100 years. What better place to start a home building company? Tammy and Keith Anderson, founders of Eldon Homes, adore Stoughton and couldn’t imagine a better place to grow.

Eldon Homes will be a big part of providing housing in Dane County and Rock County for every stage of life. The excitement behind our mission is exactly why Keith and Tammy are stepping out of retirement.

The Andersons look forward to growing communities in their hometown while residing in Aldie, VA, just outside Washington DC.

Though Tammy and Keith may be at a distance, we have a very experienced team of subcontractors and staff who live right within the beautiful town of Stoughton, Wisconsin and are ecstatic to work with you directly.

Keith & Tammy Anderson

Homebuilders and Founders of Eldon Homes

Prior to starting Eldon Homes, Keith Anderson worked in residential construction for over 16 years. He served as Executive Vice President of operations for the country’s third largest homebuilder, NVR, in Reston VA. This year, NVR built over 20k homes in over 17 states, and will have $8B in total revenue and 6500 employees.

Keith was part of the National Association of Home Builders quality council for large builders and the housing transformation committee, changing how we build homes for the future. They did so by offsetting the unprecedented cost of construction by eliminating waste and increasing efficiency.

He is currently a co-owner of on3, a micro learning application that teaches new construction managers the skills of building a house phase by phase. And, philanthropy is very important to him and his wife, Tammy Anderson.

Before to coming to NVR he served in senior level positions in 2 other Fortune 500 companies.

At Avery Dennison he was VP General Manager for the Industrial/Automotive business. He managed operations in Toronto, Singapore, Monterey, Dublin, and Cleveland OH.

At Harland check printers he was selected as the youngest plant manager and later ran one of their largest operations, in San Diego CA.  His passion for quality was obtained while in the financial industry, printing over 15k check orders per day.  “Every order makes a difference”, he was often quoted as saying.  “When it comes to printing money you have to be 100% accurate 100% of the time.”

  • A $1M donation to UW-Stevens Point’s School of Business, College to Career Center. This center helps students transition from school to their first job and beyond. Keith went to school at Stevens Point and continues to be involved in various ways.
  • The Andersons donated $500k to the X-ray and proton unit within The Dwight Scharr Cancer Research Center in Arlington VA. This unit specializes in new technology to help manage the patient’s journey through healing cancer.
  • A $1M donation to the Stoughton WI School District to put towards the new sports complex that they will be building at Collins field.
