New Construction Does NOT Mean Quality Construction

Quality Minot

A new construction home in Minot North Dakota may be priced as low as $120.00 per square foot to above $230.00 per square foot.

New construction does NOT necessarily mean QUALITY construction as many learned who purchased homes in NE Minot that have now been found to have structural issues and as it's also been revealed were never inspected by City inspectors.

The homes at Highlands at North Hill, built by R - Squared Construction are fairly priced around $150.00 per square foot and built with the highest quality of any homes in town.

Our homes have Quartz Kitchen counter tops, Tile Back splashes, Soft-close doors and drawers, Large pantry's, Wood floors, tons of Natural lighting supplemented only by LED lighting, Fire places, High efficiency furnaces, Insulated, heated & sheet rocked garages and more. All Standard! You can find cheaper for sure BUT you won't find anything better or even as High Quality as a R - Squared home at our prices.

One other thing to remember about purchasing New Construction: When you purchase a R - Squared home at Highlands at North Hill all your specials (sewer, water, street paving and other taxes) are already paid for!

Come see what we have available or what we can build for you at Highlands at North Hill. Our model home is located at 2424 Highland Drive and is open every weekday from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM or by appointment. To find Highlands at North Hill drive up to The Hyatt House but don't pull into their parking lot, continue North another block.
