AmeriSus began as an effort to reduce the cost of homeownership with the thinking that less costly homes could be the simplest way to improve homeowner’s monthly budget.
For the past decade we’ve been helping builders and homeowners create fantastic eco-homes with the focus on advancing a process that benefits from repetition and volume.
We looked at the various ways one could construct a home and chose the kit home approach for building as it offered benefits superior to other building methods.
Then we analyzed design, product specifications, procurement, logistics and overall data management in an effort to minimize waste in both materials and labor. The end result enabled builders to create fantastic homes while reducing costs by 30%.
What if something is missing?
What if something is broken?
What if we need something extra?
We’ve got you covered with one fantastic
logistics team with supply centers in every state to get components to the job site quickly.
Structural Insulated Panels (SIP’s) create a stronger more energy efficient home where the structure can be up, secure & weathertight in less than a week.
Our Ready Build™system sets a flexible schedule that coordinates product delivery with construction progress. Instead of countless trips to suppliers Amerisus parts show up when needed so that all energy can be focused on construction.
One Fixed Price
Everyone likes to know what’s happening from the onset. So whether you are a builder, lender or homeowner you know your materials costs from day one.
You won’t see us cutting corners by using low cost products to save a buck. Everything selected for an AmeriSus home is top-notch in quality and value.
We can flex many ways including modified designs & floor plans, shortened or extended schedules as well as different products or fixtures. Just because we sell homes as a kit doesn’t mean you need to compromise.
Better – Faster – Cheaper
Three words that best describe how we rank against much of the home building industry. Our homes are better, they get built faster with unbelievable pricing.

So Much More Than A Backyard Box
How’s This for a Starter Kitchen ?
Part of building an ADU via our Ready Build schedule is the flexibility. Everyone has a different timeline for construction. Pro builders might be slamming out ADU’s or even ADU neighborhoods at a hectic pace. DIY’ers might be tackling their build weekend after weekend. Whatever the speed our schedule can be adjusted accordingly. A typical ADU has five deliveries. The first includes components for putting the basic structure in place with the goal of having a weatherproof & secure “warehouse” to receive the rest of the deliveries. After that four deliveries are paced to parallel the progress of key tasks associated with completing the home. If you elect to slow things down (say for weather or other factors) we can accommodate that. Conversely, if you want to speed things up, we can handle that equally as well.
In teaming with the manufacturer of our exterior SIP panels we have two aspects of shipping costs. The SIP package along with structural lumber is big filling an entire truck. That shipment (the first one) is free within 300 miles of our national SIP suppliers. Beyond that there is an additional mileage charge.
Everything else, all the other deliveries, the thousands of pieces going into your ADU are shipped free of charge.

OK What About the Contract? – We like to keep everything real simple but in agreeing to buy an entire home there is a need for paperwork.
Bottom line is that our contract identifies all that we supply, sets the fixed price, identifies payments & schedule plus seller/buyer obligations.
Real simple = you make installment payments we supply kit components. End result – The nicest & easiest ADU in the neighborhood.
No Other Building Approach Can Compare
