Turning homes into hope.

Veridian Homes has a longstanding history of giving back to the communities in which we build. We’re incredibly proud of the Veridian Homes Foundation—our non-profit entity that launched back in 2004 and has since contributed well over $2 million to Southern Wisconsin charitable organizations. In 2021, we grew our community support even more with the debut of the Generous Home program, where we built a stand-out home featured in the Madison Parade of Homes and donated all proceeds from its sale to local nonprofits. Now, we are excited to announce the return of this program in 2024, featuring The Collins! A home with a fresh take on classic style, where grandeur meets the everyday. Learn more about this home plan below and stay tuned for more updates throughout the design and build process. Once again 100% of proceeds from its sale will go to local charities.

Building the Generous Home

It all began when David Simon, our former President at Veridian Homes, proposed showcasing an existing floor plan that we and our customers all loved. We ultimately landed on The Collins, and David's only feedback was that we consider a way to open the space and provide a sightline from the front door to the great room. From there, our Architecture & Design Team began to brainstorm. The concept quickly snowballed and paved the way for additional options to be considered. The team aimed to incorporate timeless styles with a historically traditional feel, and mold them into our own version by putting a modern take on them. Follow along here to see how we built another show-stopping home.

A closer view of the various backyard spaces. In this home it’s easy to go from entertaining on the deck to relaxing by the fire pit.

Here’s a bird’s eye view of the final landscaping of the backyard.

The front of the home is finished and looking beautiful with the addition of the front lawn.

The backyard is finally taking shape. We love this hardscaping, especially the fire pit. More updates to come as landscaping continues!

We can’t get enough of this view from the balcony looking into the backyard.

Here’s an example of unique detailing in one of the bathrooms, with this one featuring a stone accent wall.

Custom tiling can bring so much character to the inside of the home.

On the stairs you can see the combination of wood and metal detailing. Eventually carpet will be added to complete the look.

We are loving the combination of this tub with the unique emerald green tiling on the wall surrounding it.

Our beautiful interior design capabilities are on display with this ceiling detail.

Here’s a sneak peak of the pantry–full of custom cabinetry!

You can find examples of our beautiful custom cabinetry throughout the home.

This custom tiling is another example of a unique design touch within the home.

At this point lighting is hung and crews are beginning to install cabinets and trimming out the windows.

This accent wall is just one example of the quality design and attention to detail within a Veridian home.

Take a trip with us around the entire outside of the home. What a beautiful exterior!

We can’t get enough of the gorgeous hardscape that was added to the backyard. The lawn here is graded and ready for seeding next.

Take a look at the beautiful stone façade that has now been completed on the front of the home. We’ve started work on landscaping as well.

The work of installing siding and fascia continues. Here you can see some of the unique exterior details beginning to take shape.

With drywall mudding complete, the interior is ready for its first coat of paint.

Inside you can see that drywall has now been hung throughout the home.

Our crews are hard at work adding siding and final weatherproofing around the exterior of the home.

We love that at this stage you can begin to see some of the unique details that make Veridian Homes special, like custom arches flanking the fireplace.

Next up our teams will be tackling interior installs—everything from plumbing to electrical and HVAC.

With the roof on, windows in and the garage sealed off, our team can officially start working on inside mechanicals. We can’t wait to bring you along for the interior build!

With framing completed, the structure of the home begins to take its shape. We can feel the excitement building!

It’s very important for the house wrap to be done well—it’s a moisture and air barrier, so it keeps water from getting in and air from getting out.

As we move into the framing phase, crews install crucial support, beginning with floor joists.

Next our crews get to work filling in the excavated area around the foundation, making sure the earth runs away from the house and the new foundation is protected.

As the forms are being filled, the foundation is almost done, and the basement of our Generous Home is starting to take shape.

Work begins on foundation footing, a critical part of building a home to withstand Wisconsin weather.

We officially broke ground and completed excavation at the homesite of our 2024 Generous Home.

Siding is complete and the front lawn is graded and ready for more landscaping.
