These side-by-side row homes are all end units and feature an incredible 3rd-floor entertainment space and rooftop deck, a spacious master suite on the second level, and an exquisite main-level kitchen, dining area, and family room – all with in-floor heat and loads of windows. You’ll love the floating staircase, the fully fenced-in yard, and the two-car garage plus a 3rd parking spot for each unit.

Frequently Asked.

Instead of trying to fit into a house, what if your home was built around you? With high-quality craftsmanship and energy-efficient materials, we design and build modern custom homes that fit your lifestyle. Your new S9 home will be a custom sanctuary for you and your family. 

How did the owners of Sustainable 9 get started in home building?

Growing up in a smaller town in western Minnesota, they had an interest at an early age in custom home building and remodeling through our annual family trip to the Twin Cities to tour the Parade of Homes. These annual trips solidified our desire to one day become custom homebuilders ourselves. After stints in the marketing and IT fields after college, they jumped headfirst into custom home building, remodeling, and real estate 19+ years ago and never looked back. They couldn’t imagine doing anything else today.

What sets Sustainable 9 apart?

We are a small family-owned company backed by an extremely talented team of individuals who put a great deal of value in the relationships and bonds we create with our clients and our subcontractors. Since our inception, our sole commitment has been to create sustainably built, high-performance, healthy homes that are architecturally design-forward. While the design aesthetic of a home is obviously very important, so are the products we use in every home. While not all our clients have energy efficiency or indoor air quality at the top of their wish list, at a minimum, we educate them on how minor changes can make their home more sustainable and longer-lasting.

How would Sustainable 9 describe its team’s approach to a new project?

Sustainable 9 is a true design-build firm in every sense. Our simple one-stop approach to each project integrates a single design team working together from start to finish in open and purposeful collaboration. Having just one entity to work with streamlines the process and paves the way for a more creative design and an amazing end result. It also results in cost reduction, streamlined schedule, and other efficiencies.

What is a sustainable, green home?

A sustainable and green home focuses on specific energy standards that industry experts set. Some of the different focuses include better insulation, windows, doors, and sustainably harvesting the materials used throughout the home.
