Not familiar with AmeriSus – read our elevator speech

AmeriSus provides eco-home and eco-cottage designs, specifies the materials, systems and products, procures those items and has them delivered to the job site in a just-in-time fashion according a fast-track Ready Build schedule that enables a builder to quickly build high-value eco-homes that result in increased profitability for the builder and at the same time increased affordability for the buyer.

No other firm in the new home building industry can match the combined savings and value that can be achieved building an AmeriSus home.

Everyone has Questions – Here are some Answers

The building industry doesn’t make it easy for small builders and that’s where we improve the situation. We handle the front-end work such as design, product specification, procurement and logistics so that all a builder has to do is receive the materials on site and build. That process taking into all aspects can reduce a builder’s cost of construction by 20 -30%

For starters, his builder is completing a new eco-home for less cost. A good part of that savings can be passed on directly to the homeowner as buyer. Beyond that the buyer gets a fantastic energy saving eco-home built with parts that were purposely selected because of their quality and value. We tell our customers to compare what goes into an AmeriSus home with what other local builders use. The difference is impressive.

Pretty straightforward. Our customers select a home plan and make decisions on certain features and we arrive at a lump sum price and schedule. Once we sign a contract for that home the schedule kicks in and the exact products specified for that home begin arriving at the job site in about six weeks.

The typical AmeriSus eco-home requires six-weeks lead time from contract signing to the first delivery to the job site. As an example sign a contract on 6/15 and you can be building on 8/1 assuming the foundation has been put in place. Depending on time of the year, home size and location we can even accelerate that timing.

The era of paying a sub markups on the equipment he sticks you with is over. We specify the best equipment for the job and then deliver it at discount with full warranty from the manufacturer. Much of it can be installed by non-professionals because we make things simple. If you need a pro you only have to pay for his labor. paying a sub markups on the equipment he sticks you with is over. We specify the best equipment for the job and then deliver it at discount with full warranty from the manufacturer. Much of it can be installed by non-professionals because we make things simple. If you need a pro you only have to pay for his labor.

That’s a no-brainer. Our designs, volume procurement of specified components, Ready Build schedule and managed logistics produce significant savings in labor and materials in addition to waste minimization all of which

Obviously homes built on site are constructed in America but that’s only half the story. 96% of the materials that AmeriSus provides are Made in America. That’s by choice. We proudly can claim that no other volume builder matches our American Made content. We’re not stopping at 96% as we are constantly looking for ways  to increase that number.

AmeriSus projects are fast, in demand and profitable for all involved. Banks like the reduced risk. Many of our builders finance their projects locally walking into the lender’s office with a signed buyer or tenant contract having a completed and occupied house in 90 days. On top of that the AmeriSus “City Benefits” program and “Local Banker” program provide increased revenue for towns and lenders that embrace the AmeriSus concept.

Every time we create another house we are part of the movement to create or keep American jobs. Beyond American made parts our homes, unlike modular construction, bring the construction component to the local community so that all the small tasks involved with building a home like wiring, plumbing, HVAC, flooring, cabinetry, trim, etc. are done by local people. For towns with an aggressive building plan AmeriSus can create 4 full-time jobs for every home built.

For starters the cost of architectural plans is in our lumps sum price. All the materials we supply are procured at volume discount pricing. Our price includes all shipping costs and if you are in any state other than Pennsylvania there is no sales tax. On top of that, and this is significant, our homes built with our Ready Build schedule benefit from a significant reduction labor, material quantities and waste. Once built the savings continue on the energy side.

You don’t have to build an entire AmeriSus home to take advantage of some of the products going into our homes. Our AmeriSus Plus division offers these items at discount. Many of the items we us in our homes are unique in that we believe they are superior to what other builders use in their homes. Items include, trusses, Conturrent lighting, kitchen & bath cabinetry, solid-surface acrylic countertops, door hardware even paint. Need something special let our procurement team source it.

When you buy a new car and say you got it for a lesser price that’s good news. When you buy a house that is more affordable people question the concept. The AmeriSus agenda has been to make great new homes affordable for everyone. That’s what we do every day skipping subsidies and simply working hard to deliver more for less. Who wouldn’t want their mother, sister or adult child to live in a home that’s affordable?

Our home’s exterior shell is built using SIP’s (structural insulated panels) which provide superior strength and insulating properties. The HVAC systems we use, which vary depending on fuel type, are extremely efficient as well. The combination fo walls, doors, windows and systems provide a level of efficiency that is unmatched for the price.

We’re not in the business of creating McMansions. People don’t need them and most can’t afford them A smaller home cost less to build and less to operate and maintain. From a sustainability point of view using less materials for each dwelling is a great way to start at conserving resources.

Simply put 10 things which are: the land, site development & landscaping, utilities to the point of in-house distribution, sanitary piping after the trap, structural support for outside porch, deck & stairs, wallboard, gutters & downspouts, basic fasteners (screws & nails), and fire sprinklers. see explanation

Our primary customers are small builders that construct 3-20 homes each year which can be stand-alone single family units, attached towns or duplexes, triplexes & quads. Our eco-cottage activities have brought a new mix into the equation and this area is growing quite rapidly.

Most developers and agencies have contractors that have been building the same way for years. We provide an opportunity for these clients to bring a new and different approach into the mix which can help to get more built for the budget available. Our timing is also a plus in getting things done faster.

Our team of professionals has built super projects around the world involving first-of-a-kind approaches, new technology, global procurement and superior project management enhance by leading edge data management polished with a bit of industrial engineering. The result is a superior product, unmatched in the industry all for the purpose of delivering the American Dream to as many people as possible.

Actually that’s not what occurs. Yes our company is East Coast based but our suppliers are nationwide so structure, materials, fixtures and products come from everywhere often directly from the manufacturer to the job site skipping any middlemen.

There are many, many variables to arrive at a final home cost but in real basic terms our Whole Home Kit Packages are in the $50 – $80 per sf range with all in builder construction costs (including profit) being less so that all in construction costs for a  a superior eco-home home can be as little as $85 / sf

We have no physical presence in 49 states and as a result we are not required to charge or collect sales tax for products we ship to those states. That savings by itself above and beyond the many other savings we bring to each project can be as high as 10% of the cost of materials. That’s a significant # when looking at all that goes into a home.

Work with AmeriSus to create

Housing Affordable for Everyone™

Consectetur adipiscing elit. Nullam ex velit, laoreet sit amet sollicitudin sit amet, commodo eu justo. Proin dolor augue, imperdiet id mi a, suscipit lacinia risus. Mauris tortor ex, rhoncus vitae libero sed.

The above statement is more than just a cute tag-line. From our very begining we have been on a mission to lower the cost of quality housing so that it can truly be attainable by all. Our eco-cottage is a real example where a stand-alone home can be built quickly and fit within the budget of a couple earning minimum wage.

Our larger eco-homes as well as our eco-cottages offer the best mix of value, efficiency, attributes, desireability and affordability resulting in a product that can be a hit anywhere. Better yet, builders constructing our homes can increase volume and profitability while also not having to deal with design, engineering, procurement and logistics.

If you are involved in creating new housing reach out to us.

It will be the best investment of time you will make this year.
