With over 30 years of crafting houses and relationship we are confident to say we are the custom home builder Rochester Minnesota experts.
At North House, our success is no accident. With over 30 years of crafting houses, refining our process, raising the bar and building relationships, we know a thing or two. We know this isn’t about us, it’s about you.
We understand that your trust must be earned. Our relationships mean something to us and we’re picky about who we hitch our wagon to. We work with the area’s finest artisans, craftsmen, subcontractors and suppliers. Each person on our team has an important role to play in crafting spaces so it’s the most livable, sustainable, and inspiring environment for you. We want to build homes that together we can be proud of.
Satisfied customers are our best ads. Your needs influence absolutely all we do. Listening is how we learn to make your home and community lives better. So before we pick up a pencil to design, we get to know you. And long after the last hammer is packed away, we’re still with you. Because well done is better than well said.
From start to finish what you will expect
This is where it all starts. We get to know you and you get to know us – ensuring we are the best fit for each other. This obligation free conversation is a chance for you to ask questions and for us to understand your needs. We’re ready when you are.
You influence the design, not the other way around. We will take into consideration any images, layouts or drawings that inspire you. You may also view our models or create a wish list prior to our Discovery Session.
Let’s talk about financials. Money can be a hard topic, but we want to fit into your lifestyle and design wisely. We want to be good stewards of your hard-earned income.
We help you choose the neighborhood by evaluating what nature offers and what amenities are important to you. Our team is tuned into the market – we have the scoop on what lots are available. View Communities
This is how we get the ball rolling. We take this seriously, so we require a small deposit to get started bringing your ideas to life. When you build, that deposit goes toward your down payment.
This is when it gets REALLY fun! Our in-house architectural designer will take what he’s learned about you and designs the home you’ve only just imagined. A house that is uniquely you.
We gather bids from our trusted partners to ensure your house is built into your budget and to last a lifetime. This is a transparent process, there are no hidden fees.
Your vision takes life. As a design-build company, we are one entity, creating one unified flow of work from initial concept through completion. We execute on each carefully laid out plan to bring your home to fruition.
We keep you involved the whole time. Our construction collaboration app allows you to see the progress of your home in real time. You can monitor your budget and watch the building process.
Before we hand you the keys, we make sure everything is up to snuff. We take time to check every nook and cranny to ensure it’s ready for you.
We’re honored to be part of this process. To create something so special with you. The keys are now yours!
We haven’t left you yet. We warranty our work and come back after the home has settled to make sure everything is in good shape. Like we said, you’ve gained a friend. We won’t leave you hanging.
We don’t just build homes. We build memories and dreams. Our custom home builder Rochester Minnesota experience came from our 30 years of experience.
I am the founder of R. Fleming construction and I’ve been in the real estate industry for nearly 40 years. I’m old! The one thing I can say I’ve learned over the years is that people always need to come first.
We are in the service industry and having a commitment to excellence in our interactions with customers and with the product we produce is how we have found success. If you listen to the needs, wants and wishes of the people – then you’ll always be successful.
I like taking chances and doing something different – based on the customer. I’m an introverted family man, by nature. So you won’t likely see me at any large gatherings, instead I’ll be spending time at the lake with my wife Sharon and our two dogs Otis and Sophie.
The times have changed a lot since I first started, but one trend that will never go away is quality. I believe in quality construction, quality people, quality service.
I am known as the “design guy” around the office. I’ve worked with R. Fleming clients for nearly seven years. My job is like giving Christmas gifts every day. Seeing the look on our clients’ faces when they see the home of their dreams is a gift that keeps on giving. I knew from an early age that I wanted to design homes. After working in various parts of the industry I found my stride with R. Fleming. I get to think about each angle, joint, and window – everything that makes the house whole. I believe in creating highly-functional spaces that capture the way people really live. I live in Rochester with my wife Ashley, our four kids, our Great Pyrenees Ana and a cat who would prefer to remain anonymous.
I’m known for my insatiable curiosity, devotion to clients, movie knowledge and love of Chipotle. My years of experience in the beverage industry taught me about integrity in business negotiations and how to listen to my intuition. I have boundless enthusiasm for everything I do and love to get people excited with me. I take time to listen and always put clients first because this is not about me or my ego. I approach each day with a smile while working hard to do what is right and fair so each person can have a positive real estate experience. And I’m going to make sure we have fun in the process. In my free time I can be found watching YouTube, scouring the web for the best deals on flights, playing and coaching hockey, golfing and spending time with my girlfriend Tanya and our English bulldog, Avery.
I love working on a team and am known as our jack of all trades. My parents taught me the value of commitment, collaboration and an entrepreneurial spirit. I’m a doer and am always challenging myself to learn more. As the youngest child I learned that having patience and a good attitude always leads to the best outcome. I approach every situation with an open mind and sense of humor. I built my first home at the age of 24 and loved everything about the building experience. I was born into the real estate and building industry, so new construction is in my blood – I love the art of it. I help make sure each and every transaction runs smoothly for our clients and team. In my free time I enjoy traveling, vacationing at our family cabin, and spending time with my Basset Hound, Finn.
