In short, our curated homes are a way to build a customized home without being completely overwhelmed!

Our in-house design team will work with you to guide you through the selections process. The selections are a carefully curated collection of products that allow you to customize your home simply, efficiently, and to your style. We offer several choices for everything from paint colors to lighting. The design team will guide you and help with technical questions, so you feel confident about making educated choices for your home.

The design team then coordinates and documents your preferences and hands this information over to our construction team. By working together from day one, we’re better able to creatively design solutions that fit your needs, style, and budget.

We have created an assortment of carefully designed homes, and by re-using these plans, we can build more efficiently and cut costs. Our floorplans have several exterior style options, so our neighborhoods don’t feel ‘cookie-cutter.’ Therefore, we only build from our collection.

If you’re looking for a house you can move into right away (or in the next couple of months), please take a look at our inventory of homes. We usually have houses at all stages of construction, and we try to have some that are move-in ready on hand.

When building a Curated home from scratch, you can expect to move into your custom home in 5-7 months, depending on the complexity of your project, time of year (we’re occasionally at the mercy of Montana’s weather), and you know, COVID.

Curated homes currently cost between $450,000 to $800,000+. The price depends on the lot price, the size, and the specific finishes selected. Our proprietary design process helps you manage your budget from day one.

Yes! We offer a variety of lots in our communities. We sell them as lot-and-home packages, so you do need to build with us. Check out our Neighborhood Page to see what we offer!

The selection process takes most clients two-or-three weeks to complete. Once you are happy with your combination of options, the team will edit the plans to match and create a plan set and construction agreement for you. The agreement outlines what we will build for you, how we will do it, and how much it will cost you. We will start building your home on our next available opening when the agreement is signed, and the 5% deposit is paid. (See our 10-Step Process for more info).

We also take on occasional light commercial projects–primarily office, medical, and retail space. If you’re looking for a new space for your business, we often have a few suites available for purchase, joint venture, or rental.

We offer a plethora of high-quality and on-trend selections that we are constantly updating and modifying to allow you to personalize your home. If, however, you have your heart set on something that we do not have in our collection, it may be possible to veer from the path; there is a fee for this service, though.
