Sierra Homes Philosophy


WE MAKE YOUR DREAM HOME A REALITY! Everyone has a picture in their mind of what would make the perfect home. A big kitchen? Ample storage options? Multi-functional spaces to meet the needs of the modern family? Great rooms where everyone can gather in comfort? Everyone's dream is different, but that's where we start. We listen to your needs and work with you to create the perfect floor plan, find the perfect lot, and start the evolution of your new home that fits your lifestyle!

Our Building Process


Building a new home is an exciting experience, but it can also be overwhelming. This is why we give you an overview of the process upfront, ensuring you know what to expect, and then MANAGE each step FOR YOU. We are an intimate builder that works with our clients very closely to ensure our customers needs are met from beginning to end. Our first meeting is to discuss your vision and budget. All of our clients are provided a personal web page that allows them to stay connected 24/7. This allows our clients to log on via a secure web portal and see current budget and next steps within the building process. In addition to access to your project anytime you want, you will work directly with the owner Matt Kronaizl and our professional design staff who will guide you through the multitude of design decisions, offering you the best options and solutions every step of the way.

Owner and Builder - Matt Kronaizl


Not many people can say they have chosen a career that they truly love and are passionate about but in this case, I did! Each house we build is a product of hard work, attention to detail and incredible design. With an engineer mindset and thorough understanding of the building process, my mission is to build inspiring energy efficient and 100% pure quality custom homes. As the founder and Chairperson of the Nebraska Design and Construction Industry Council, and past President of the Nebraska Chapter for The Design Build Institute of America, much of my spare time has been spent giving back to the construction industry, bringing designers and builders together to work on the challenges and opportunities facing the entire industry.

My goal is to provide the highest quality home for the money in the Omaha market, and to make sure that at the end of the project you and your family move into the home of your dreams. We have built a truly professional organization which realizes that a referral is the most sincere compliment one can receive. Therefore, I want to make sure we build you a home that you are proud to show to your family and friends.
