Build with Robert Thomas Homes
Robert Thomas Homes builds exceptional homes in beautiful communities.
Beautiful communities where you want to live.
Our neighborhoods across the Twin Cities are designed to preserve the beauty of nature, where trails weave through green spaces and water features abound. Tree-lined sidewalks encourage front-porch living, and our communities often feature community pools, exercise facilities, and places to gather with your neighbors.
Excellence standard in every home.
At the heart of Robert Thomas Homes is our commitment to design excellence. Step into one of our Showcase Models to feel the difference: our homes are thoughtfully designed for how you live, with architectural details and quality finishes.
We strive to create beautiful and comfortable spaces. Our collections of home plans are tailored to a variety of lifestyles, lot sizes, and budgets.
Many of our standard features include what others consider upgrades, like quartz countertops, custom kitchen cabinets, and site-painted trimwork. Yards are professionally landscaped and include automatic irrigation systems, and all our exteriors feature architecturally-detailed siding and trim on all four sides of the home.
Many of our plans are available with optional features including bonus rooms, resource centers, drop zones, sunrooms and screen porches. All options are pre-priced to provide the best value to our clients. Even an indoor sport court can be incorporated into several of our home plans, in case you want to be the hub of activity in your new neighborhood. Available premium upgrades include home automation, audio, and security packages.
The Robert Thomas Homes Design Studio is at the heart of our design specification process. It’s the place to feel inspired, discover new trends, and select the finish materials that will personalize your new home. All Robert Thomas Homes buyers work one-on-one with one of our professional interior designers to create a home that reflects their very own personal taste and style. From kitchen countertops and flooring to exterior color selections, our experienced designer helps you make the most of your options, and simplifies the process of designing your new home.

Leading with innovation.
Robert Thomas Homes champions innovation across the company to build a better house, streamline processes, and communicate better with our clients.
Architects develop plans, interior designers search for new selections that are on-trend and timeless, and our sourcing experts work with suppliers to find products that offer increased value to our clients.
Robert Thomas Homes is a Designated Green Path builder, which means that every Robert Thomas home is built with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind. Many of those innovations are hidden beneath the siding and drywall of our homes, and that’s why all our homes are independently tested and rated by a third-party professional trained in advanced building sciences.
Homes tested receive a Home Performance Report detailing the energy saving features included and are scored using the Home Energy Rating System (HERS). The lower the score, the more efficient the home.
