So you’re thinking about building a house?

let's build your dream home

We’ve built so many homes that we could do it in our sleep (but we promise to stay awake for it!) 

we're here every step of the way

I know what you're thinking, and we're going to stop you before the, “but building a house is stressful,” thought creeps into your head. That’s where we come in! 

From the initial napkin sketch, through construction, down to hanging the last piece of artwork - our team oversees every step of your project.  You don’t have to worry about a no-show plumber, wrong material getting installed, or a designer not communicating with the builder. Being design-build, we take care of it all. 

We hand-pick trade partners we trust who share our passion for quality. Should any issue arise, you can rest assured that we will be there to correct it immediately.

high quality.

From the moment we purchased our lot & decided to build with Alma we have had a

great experience with their team.

The communication during construction was outstanding. The final product is a stunning home that

captured everything my family was looking for.

My project turned out beautifully with a fresh modern design. Everyone was so pleasant to work with and

I had full confidence it would turn out excellent.

Still have questions?
We have answers!

We are licensed in MN and Summit County, CO. We focus primarily on the Twin Cities metro area, specializing in lake lots and teardowns. We will take on projects throughout MN depending on their size and scale. While we don't build outside of those areas (yet), you can still work with our interior design team remotely.

where do you build?

01 /

Location is the biggest factor to consider. Be aware if the property has city sewer and water or if you will need a well and septic system. Many of our projects are on well and septic, so it will add at least $30k to the cost of your lot. We highly recommend doing soil tests if the lot is not developed, as bad soil can be extremely costly, and pilings may be necessary on some lake lots. 

what should I look for when purchasing land? are there hidden costs?

03 /

We take care of everything! This includes the permits, construction, hiring trades, ordering materials, landscaping , etc. We cover it all so you don't have to.

what is included in the build?

05 /

No.  We have an award winning design team and we create all plans in house.  That being said, if you already have plans from an architect, we are happy to still build your home.  

do i need to hire an architect or an interior designer?

06 /

We recommend starting earlier than you think! At a minimum, at least a year before you are hoping to move in.  Permitting and variances can take many months, and we do book out quickly.  Signing our design agreement holds your spot in our queue, even if you don't plan to start design or construction for a year or more. 

how early should i hire you if i plan to build in the future?

07 /

Every home is different based on the scope, size, and finishes, but we recommend planning for at least $300/SF for the build (not including land).

how much does it cost to build?

02 /

We do not get involved in the land procurement process, but we know great realtors we recommend you work with.

will you help us find land?

04 /

Our clients traditionally pay cash for their build, or they do a construction loan through a local bank.

how do i finance the build?
