One of the most exciting things in life is building a new custom home! With a passion for building the dreams his clients call “home,” Don Cerra is just as excited as his clients.

It Starts with a Conversation

The building process starts with a conversation. What are your dreams? What are your needs and desires? Do you already have plans? If the answer is yes, that’s great! Cerra Homes can build according to your plans and/or make the adjustments you wish. If the answer is no, Cerra Homes can help you find a design that’s right for you.

The High Performance Home

Building green is about more than low-E windows, low-flush toilets and spray foam insulation. It involves, but is not limited to:

  • siting your home properly on the lot or land
  • accounting for solar gain/loss
  • establishing proper air exchanges
  • utilizing correct framing techniques
  • choosing sustainable, durable and non-toxic materials and systems
  • paying attention to house “breathability”
  • reducing waste
  • incorporating xeriscaping
  • recycling during construction
  • and countless other details

There are varying degrees of green. Which hue is right for you? Don will customize a plan to meet your desires and how much you choose to spend.

Cerra Homes works with its clients to make sure the entire process goes smoothly. Don shares information about ever-evolving green technologies and how the choices you make can result in a home both green and within your budget.


The Home as Sanctuary

Cerra Homes embraces the concept of “home as sanctuary.” Your home should be a place of relaxation and renewal and it should be ideal for how you live. To build residences that achieve this goal, it’s vital for client and builder to work in concert.


Client collaboration has always been a hallmark of the building process with Cerra Homes. Enjoying the relationship that develops as everyone works in partnership is a wonderful by-product of the construction project. Cerra Homes believes that building should be a fun process where many memorable experiences are created along the way.

Don welcomes your involvement including site visits any time you wish. He is always available to answer questions. And if you are someone who wants to get involved in the actual construction itself, Don encourages that as well.

Cerra Homes subscribes to the belief that the journey should be as enjoyable as the destination. And as always, the final goal is not only a home with a zero punch list but a residence that will be loved for years to come.

Construction Budget

A key part of the process is estimating the cost of construction. Cerra Homes does this per your set of specifications vs. a cost/square foot basis. And transparent pricing is always part of the building contract. Included in your contract is an entire breakdown of costs with the estimate data that was used to develop the construction budget.
