Fred Griffin has every lender I would mention and then some.  Good luck.  Hopefully they can either help you or know someone in your state that can.

Jim Paulson one of my agents was going to meet with a lender this week for this very thing but then they ended up finding an existing home. I'll find out who he was going to meet with.

Thank you for the suggestions and comments everyone.  Yet another reason I love ActiveRain and it's members.  I will let everyone on this post know what I find.  Any of the lenders, feel free to email your VA One Time close program if you are licensed to do mortgages in Idaho.

Can do in California and really like to keep construction where I can drive to solve those likely disagreements about change requests. In Boise or where? I will get you a name. Construction lending is a marriage with the lender best not a long distance relationship.

 Our office in Boise can't do it,  I called Zions and Flagstar, no answer back yet

 Jim Paulson ... this is not something that I have done here in Illinois, let alone speak to Idaho practices.  I applaud your effort to assist your veteran and keep expenses down for them.  Depending on your veteran's position (owning the land outright/VS needing to purchase the land along with the new construction), this can be a very challenging transaction and financing.  I hope you share your experiences moving forward ... and let us know your search results.  Best of Luck,

Gene
