Build Your Home

Experience the Beauty of Building

With Gonyea

Building with Gonyea is an art form. We take a blank canvas, add your vision and then create a masterpiece you can be proud of from start to finish. Throughout the building process, you are an integral part of discovering what makes your idea of home a reality.

Choosing the Right Location

Our custom home building process begins with selecting the right location for your new home. You can choose to build your home on one of our premium homesites in the best neighborhoods and school districts in many of the top-tier suburbs of the Twin Cities, including in North Oaks, Woodbury, Minnetonka, Orono, Minnetrista, Shorewood, Chanhassen, Plymouth and Maple Grove.

Or you can choose to build on your own lot. Our team will help you find the perfect location before we begin.

Delivering a Design Process

Unlike Any Other

After you find the perfect location, we will begin designing your finely crafted custom home. Our architecture team will work with you to detail out every inch of your home, using a process that is both an art form and a science. You will have the opportunity to watch as our architects take information gathered from you and sketch your new custom home before your eyes.

Inside of our Design Studio, interact with all the items you want for your future home, hand-selecting your home design finishes from a broad range of the finest materials available. You’ll be able to see and touch these items in a relaxed atmosphere, while our professional designers work with you to perfect your design.

Building Your Home With Only the Best Materials

Once the design process is complete, it is time to begin building. Gonyea uses only the best materials and superior building techniques to protect your investment. After the completion of your home, our warranty service division provides responsive service far after the build is complete. We stand behind our work.

We deliver a smooth closing process, keeping communication open between you, the realtor, the title company and the lender. This open process reduces the stress of building a new home and avoids unwanted surprises at the closing table.

Experience the Gonyea Difference

We have high standards when it comes to building your custom home. What makes our building standards different than the rest? Our homes are built to last.

  • 30-year architectural shingles for beautiful, three-dimensional design with wind and fire resistance
  • Lumber that is Forest Stewardship Council Certified from responsibly managed forests
  • Windows directly sourced from industry leader, Andersen
  • High-efficiency furnaces, humidifiers and programmable thermostats
  • Lower-level construction that includes eight inches of clean rock and poly vapor barrier for warmer and drier floors

Beyond these additions, Gonyea is the first builder in the United States to qualify as a Holmes Approved Partner Builder. This means we use proper building practices with technology to go above and beyond residential standards.
