Tanzanite Homes, and its three distinct series of homes, was launched in response to our customer’s desire for custom homes at varying price points.

Through our years of experience as Iowa’s premier locally-owned custom home builder, we’ve created a wide variety of different building experiences at all price points. But if you’re new to the home building process, it can seem overwhelming. One of the most important things when looking for a builder is your comfort levels. Take a deep breath because we’ve perfected the home building process and keep you involved with the project from Day 1. 

The most frequently asked home building question we get is how to handle any unknowns. At Tanzanite Homes, we take special care to mitigate this concern by keeping you involved in the entire process, so you feel like you are truly building something special from the ground up. There are no surprises because we give you a price before we even break ground. 

We’ve broken down exactly what to expect with your home building process. 

We Listen

You’ll sit down with our building team and they’ll listen. We want to find the floor plan that is perfectly tailored for your lifestyle and financial budget. If you’re someone who likes to entertain, we want to make sure you have spaces that accommodate for that.

Are you a gourmet cook? Your kitchen and pantry, where your family is most likely to gather, are going to be a top priority. We want you to tell us about what you want and need from your home. Think about what is important to you and why.

We Give the Best Value

We are constantly looking for what’s best for our customers. Offering a wide variety of floor plans, you can choose from a ranch, two-story, or split-level home.

Tanzanite Homes gives you three distinct building experiences.

The Streamline Series are homes built per plan.

With the Silver Series, you can use any of our floor plans that make any non-structural changes.

To get the most options, you can choose the Select Series which offers floor plan modifications tailored to meet your needs and budget. 

To get even more value out of your new home, we encourage you to think of the value your home can provide down the road. We help you make decisions during your home building process that will bring a higher resale value to your house down the road.

The ranch plans have consistently been a number one choice because it appeals to most buyers at different points in their life. 

At Tanzanite Homes, we stand behind each and every one of our homes. We pride ourselves on offering a side variety of standard features and a quick turnaround. The Streamline Series takes around 100 days from the day we dig the basement. Silver Series and Tanzanite Select homes take 120 without a finished basement and 135 for ranches with a basement or homes with two stories.

We Make the Process Seamless

During the construction process, you’ll be assigned a project manager and superintendent. Your project manager’s job is to help you make selections, walk through the floor plans with you, and ensure that everything on paper is exactly how you want it to be. The superintendent works with the project manager to begin to build your house from the ground up. 

Your assigned superintendent will update you weekly on our Builder App, ensuring you’re a part of the process from start to finish. You’ll go through different walkthroughs of the home and various points in building and construction process with your superintendent and be able to watch the progress or request changes.
