No two families are alike, and nothing could be closer to the truth when it comes to building and designing a custom home! Your family’s unique combination of lifestyles, traditions, values, and interior design styles combine in an infinite number of ways to make the perfect home for you. At Viking Custom Homes, we encourage all of our families to share the things that are important to them to match the perfect floor plan with the perfect features. We know your family will love our signature features package, Heritage.

The Viking Custom Homes Heritage Collection of features is the basis of our outstanding reputation when it comes to included features. The Heritage Collection boasts a higher level of products than some builders even offer! From our hardwood flooring that’s finished-in-place to our full overlay maple cabinets, you will not be disappointed in our Heritage features.


Here at Viking, we stopped using lower, base grade interior products across the board. We feel homeowners deserve and are happier with a higher level of standard features that won’t require upgrades in a few short years. Our homeowners appreciate that it’s not necessary to pay for endless upgrades and are pleasantly surprised at what we include as our standard. 9’ lower level and basement ceilings, hardwood stairs, oversized trim moldings, drywalled, trimmed, and  painted garages and granite countertops are just a few examples.
