Your Custom Design-Build Process

Our custom home building process is as unique as the homes we build. Every customer works directly with Dean Nelson, President of Homes by Tradition, to ensure the best experience possible. A partnership with Homes by Tradition makes the process of building a custom home fun and rewarding. We’ll listen, learn and gather information about you, your lifestyle, and your needs. The result? A custom-built home that truly reflects your style. Here are the 7 Stages of Your Custom Home Design-Build Journey. Contact us to get more detailed information on each of our stages in our process.

From concept to completion, we provide the top level of service expected from our customers. We separate ourselves from other Twin Cities custom home builders by offering a convenient “one-stop-shop” custom process, where architectural design, construction, interior design and color selections, mortgage/financing and closing/title are all handled within our integration of Tradition Companies. From the very beginning to after you close on your new home, our team is there to ensure your satisfaction of every aspect of the process.
