A Storied Past & Visionary Future

Art Rutenberg began homebuilding in 1953 and, from the very beginning, was an industry pioneer. His ideals were simple, yet revolutionary: deliver innovative, original home designs of exceptional quality, all while providing a pleasant buying experience.

These ideals helped his company grow to become the largest network of franchise custom homebuilders in the country. They also led to his induction into the Housing Hall of Fame, among many incredible career milestones.

Today, they serve as the foundation of our company, and we honor Art’s legacy with a continued focus on customer experience. We strive to bring new innovative home designs to life with the finest materials, craftsmanship, and techniques available, treating each client’s vision as our ultimate inspiration.

The AR Homes® Difference

As a perennial industry innovator, AR Homes® builders have the distinct advantage of best-in-class building resources, innovative design and budgeting software, as well as our unrelenting desire to meticulously craft homes we would be proud to call our own.

Local Expertise,
World-Class Quality
When you choose an AR Homes® builder, you’re choosing to work with a local expert whose knowledge of the market and building practices is unsurpassed. When you build a custom home, you deserve local expertise from a professional who understands and maintains relationships with local authorities, communities, vendors, and subcontractors. When you work with the best, you experience a superior building process.
The Highest Standards
of Craftmanship
Experiencing is believing and nothing demonstrates the quality of an AR Home® better than our model homes. We stand behind our work with a builder’s guarantee that your custom home will be built with the same attention to quality and detail – or even higher – as our model homes.
Award-Winning,
Fully Customizable Plans
There’s nothing off-the-shelf about our vast collection of award-winning and fully customizable home designs. Each one stands on its own architectural merits, and with more than 300 designs ranging from 2,000-7,000 square feet, the possibilities are endless.
High Technology
Drives Our Artistry
AR Homes® uses cutting-edge architectural design technology. Our dedicated team of designers, working directly with our builders, use powerful 3D software to produce plans you can experience virtually before construction starts; including 3D lot fits, walk-throughs and more.
Dedication to
Transparent Pricing
AR Homes® proprietary estimating system was designed to give buyers peace-of-mind by providing a firm price at the outset of the homebuilding process. Our systems combines superior plan design, quality products from leading manufacturers, timelines, and fixed prices related to the completion of your home, allowing AR Homes® builders to provide extremely competitive and accurate upfront pricing.
An Elevated
Experience
When you entrust our builders to create your custom home, you will experience attentive, personalized, and transparent service before, during, and after construction. From the moment you begin the custom homebuying journey and plan your new home, we’ll provide you with an exceptional experience that will keep you inspired, enthused, and informed every step of the way.
