Nor-Son Custom Builders

Matt Holmstrom, Andy Anderson, & Eddie Near

Nor-Son was built on the principles of craftsmanship and confidence, and also cost intelligence—so that their clients’ high expectations are met without surprise. This process is unique to Nor-Son, and it’s how they’ve been able to deliver such an unusually high standard of customer service over the past 40 years. Your home is the single most important asset you will ever have. The team at Nor-Son believes their job is to build the best you will ever own.

How did you get started in homebuilding?

Our founder’s passion to create and build. We’ve been building custom homes since 1978. There was a need for better homebuilders in the construction industry. We really wanted to find a better way to build for a stress-free experience.

What inspires and influences your work?

Our clients. They give us inspiration and their goals influence our business. The clients we work for have a desire for creativity and expect a great experience throughout the entire design-build process. With the rise in complexity required in high-performance, custom home construction, busy homeowners need a multi-faceted team they can trust more than ever. We bring all the experts needed for a successful project together, early in the process, so the client gets the most value in their home.

 How would you describe your build style?

We build many different styles of homes that appeal to our clients. Anything from rustic log to modern and contemporary, Nor-Son builds it. We do not limit ourselves to one build style.

 Why do you think your clients choose you as their builder?

Our clients choose us for the teams we put together for the ultimate building experience. Our collaborative process helps clients make decisions early in the process without compromising their design or their wallet.

What are the most important elements of a successful build team?

The most important element of a successful build team is getting everyone to the table as soon as possible. It is extremely helpful to have the person who is going to build the home sitting at the table during the entire design process. Your builder can help find you the best architectural designer, interior designer, project manager, site supervisor, estimator, vendors, and craftspeople. The most important element toward project success is finding your builder first.

What are some of your favorite trends in new construction?

Clean, simple architectural lines that continue to use timeless materials like wood and stone, with glass and metals introduced. Another favorite trend is the introduction of expansive openings of patio doors that open to the outside environment.

What makes you most proud to be a builder?

Watching our clients’ vision come to life, building long-term relationships with them, and creating memories for couples and families that last decades.
