Custom Building

With a passion for unique design and quality, Nies Homes creates distinctive, custom homes that are a representation of your lifestyle. Your new home is where memories will be made and shared with family and friends. Designing and building homes for 30 years, Cherie Nies Cowgill involves herself in each custom project from the onset. Cherie is a genuine advocate for her clients’ vision and interests, guiding the team to ensure that your home achieves integrity of design and quality that is synonymous with a Nies-built home. Clients can choose to customize one of our many award-winning home designs, or you may bring your own ideas and work with Cherie to literally create the home of your dreams. Nies Homes specializes in working with families to craft distinctive custom homes, designed for the way you live.

Our goal is to make the home building process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Clients are provided with a secure link to a website customized for your project. Whether you are at home, at work, on the road, or even on vacation, you will have information at your fingertips about your selections, upgrade pricing, financial decisions, questions, documents, photos and more. We find that implementing this user-friendly technology has improved communication, increased efficiency and real-time collaboration – ultimately, it has put the homeowners in the driver’s seat throughout the design and building process.

On Your Property

For more than 50 years, Nies Homes has been building quality, custom homes in neighborhoods located throughout Wichita and the surrounding area. Now Nies Homes is extending the experience to your location, your property. When you chose to build on your land, not only will Nies Homes build on your site, but we’ll also provide you with a portfolio of our many home designs for you to choose from.

There may be challenges of additional site work that may be required to build on the site. Or maybe there’s areas that you may not be able to build on at all, such as flood zones, easements, zoning laws, property line restrictions and more. But don’t worry. Our team offers a free on-site evaluation. We will visit your lot, discuss with you any challenges or issues that may arise and help you determine the perfect location for your beautiful dream house. Give us a call or send us an email and start making the dreams of your new home a reality.
