Custom Homes

Your custom home is a huge investment of both time and resources. Most clients will build a custom home just once in their lifetime – shouldn’t it stand the test of time? Amsted has the experience to create beautiful, livable plans and designs with the understanding of what true quality craftsmanship means. We are committed to making your dream a reality by focusing on the things that are important to you in the design and function of your new home.

Amsted offers design-build services for clients who want to work solely with one company from the beginning to the end of their new home build, as well as for clients who wish us to work collaboratively with an architect of their choosing. We take pride in every project to ensure you end up in a beautiful custom home – designed just the way you want it – with impeccable workmanship and attention to detail.
