About Modern Nest

Timeless Homes for the Modern Family

At Modern Nest, we are dedicated to enriching the way families live through inspired homes that are equally inspiring and comfortable, all while pushing the limits of design and luxury. Our style is guided by a passion for quality craftsmanship, elevated design, comfortable living, and homes that nurture a warm family lifestyle. Our floorplans are functional while still family-friendly, our material selections are durable, and our furnishings are beautiful and high-quality, yet comfortable and effortlessly livable.

We Believe

A home is part of the family

To us, this is more than just work. We have a genuine passion for what we do and we don’t mean construction. We thrive on partnering with families to create homes that are more than simply beautiful spaces – we design, build, and furnish unique homes that are sophisticated, comfortable, and wonderfully livable.

Our Founders

Brendan and Jillian Bader

Brendan knew from a young age that he wanted to pursue a career in home building and construction. He graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Residential Construction Management and immediately immersed himself in the profession. His hands-on approach was key to learning the ins and outs of every aspect of home building, from developing the initial concept and architectural plans to finishes, electrical, plumbing, and everything in between. Now he’s able to apply that leadership from start to finish to create original homes filled with thoughtful, personally inspiring spaces that reflect a charm-filled version of family living.

Jillian, originally an educator, didn’t anticipate becoming a home designer. Her role evolved from originally selecting finishes and contributing design ideas to now working closely with Brendan and the Modern Nest team to innovate for each home a specific style concept, material selection that bridges the design vision with constructability, and shop furnishings down to the last brass tack.
