Amaris Homes


The market calls it green building; we call it common sense building. When you buy a custom home from Amaris Custom Homes, you are buying from an industry leader. That leadership translates into peace of mind knowing you are getting the best possible outcome. We constantly pursue understanding of how the built systems will operate and perform together (building science) and carefully incorporate products and procedures into the building of your home that make common sense for you. This common sense approach to custom building translates into better, safer, more durable, more energy and water efficient homes. In fact, Amaris custom built homes offer superior-quality construction that far exceeds state building codes in almost every way.


Our mission is “AFFORDABLE” custom-built green homes…with healthy living built in. Our mission is our brand promise to you. We are driven to provide you with the highest quality, energy-efficient, safe, durable, healthy home for the lowest possible price possible. Quality is built into every aspect of construction, including the things you can see and those things you can’t. Amaris Custom Homes won’t just build you a good home…we will build you a great home!

Integrated Design/Build Approach

At Amaris Custom Homes you will be treated like royalty. Regardless of your budget, every Amaris Custom Built home is designed from the ground up for each individual customer. It doesn’t matter if you are empty nesters looking to age in place, a growing family with flexible needs or future concerns, or a multi-generational family, your home will be uniquely designed to fit your family and your lifestyle.

Our integrated approach is designed for busy people who are concerned about the building process overwhelming them. At no extra charge or cost to the project, our on staff interior designer will guide you through the material and selection process, so there is no need to spend evenings and weekends shopping; we do it all for you. It couldn’t be any easier.

Transparency & Fairness

Customers trust Amaris Homes and you can too because we are totally transparent in every aspect of our business. Our project books will be completely open to you, including all take-offs, estimates, invoices, overhead costs and profit line items. There isn’t any detail we won’t share with you. Total transparency removes any question or doubt about what something costs or what the builder is making. All the information is provided for you to see and understand.

If a challenge does arise, you can be assured you will be treated with complete fairness at all times. In fact, Amaris Custom Homes has never had any unresolved financial dispute with any customer over money…and that says a lot.


We won’t be experimenting on your home. Amaris Custom Homes has built more LEED qualified or LEED Certified single family homes than any other custom home builder in Minnesota. In addition, Amaris Custom Homes has worked with most of the green certification programs available in Minnesota, such as MN Green Star, Green Path, Energy Star and Builders Challenge. Because we have built many custom green homes, our team is well trained and knows how to execute on your custom-built green home project. In fact, we have embedded green principles into our everyday building practices.


Amaris is A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau and an accredited business. We also have solid references that we will gladly provide once we meet.

“we are very happy with the house Amaris Custom Homes built us. When there have been issues, they stood behind their product.”

“ Amaris does many things that are unlike any other builder. In todays tight economy we wanted to know what the base price was to see if it was the best “deal,” for us. Amaris has an open book policy that is virtually unheard of. This means you see where every dime is spent in building your dream, right down to the very bills Amaris is sent for payment of any and all items.”

– Kevin & Vesna, Plymouth
