At Amaris Homes, we don't just build high performing, healthy green homes, we create beautiful spaces that people love to live in too. This attention to detail is exemplified by our Reggie Award℠ winning zero energy home. The Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) recognizes the "best of the best" model homes during the Spring & Fall Parade of Homes each year. Builders, suppliers and vendors come together to choose the top homes in a variety of price ranges. An Amaris zero energy home was recognized for being at the top of its class in the fall of 2015.
A Reggie Award℠ winning custom-built home is a great accomplishment and says a lot about a builder, but for Amaris Homes, a beautiful and efficient home is not nearly enough. Our team has built many homes to the Department of Energy’s (DoE) Zero Energy ready standards. These homes are in the top 1% of the most efficient homes built in the United States. Our custom homes are healthy, safe, durable and comfortable, so occupants will enjoy a higher quality of living. We go the extra mile to ensure that every zero energy home meets Energy Star for Homes 3.0, EPA Indoor Air Quality Plus and EPA Water Sense standards. As industry innovators, our team is proud to have built the very first DoE Challenge home in Minnesota.
Amaris zero energy homes are a feat of engineering and home design. The goal of this project was to build and offer the first home in Minnesota (and maybe any northern climate) a zero energy cost guarantee. Living up to its name, the purchaser of this project home was offered a written guarantee by the builder of zero annual costs on an annual basis for the first ten years. Home design has truly reached new heights with a home that eliminates energy bills. How is it possible? The free energy comes from a combination of on-site renewable energy solar power, high performance construction methods and the Xcel Solar Rewards Rebate. When you compare our zero energy homes with homes built using standard construction methods, the difference is clear. Homeowners are sure to save a significant amount of money over time with an Amaris home.
"We've been building high-performance, green-homes for ten years figuring out how to do all of this," says Raymond Pruban, our Founder and Chief Manager and we're proud to have earned our reputation as an industry leader for building healthy, safe, durable, comfortable, high-efficiency green homes designed to stand the test of time. We are fully committed to building homes that go above and beyond even the most stringent measures of efficiency, health, safety durability and comfort."
Our Reggie Award℠ winning home was built to resemble a barn attached to an old farmhouse. As with every Amaris design, from the moment you pull up to the home, it greets you and pulls you in. Completely custom-built, this zero energy home nothing like your average cookie-cutter. A peaceful 5-acre lot sets the stage for a truly unique home.
Amaris homes are never short on amenities. This award winning home featured a gourmet-style kitchen, high end finishes, stainless steel appliances and countless other features that made it stand out from the crowd. The advantages don’t stop at the front door – our zero energy home was built with an exterior that impresses. Beautiful landscaping, an irrigation system and outdoor living spaces were built with efficiency and aesthetics in mind. When everything comes together, an Amaris zero energy home is like nothing else on the market. Build yours to see what’s possible.
