Beautiful homes begin in your imagination. From the big picture down to the tiny details, a home is truly beautiful when it is distinctly you. It’s the difference between buying a house already on the market and building one that you always wanted. The next step is to find a builder who shares your vision.


A custom home requires a builder you can count on to turn your dream home into a real home. That takes reliable, professional service from an experienced builder who listens to you, then builds with the best materials and most advanced processes. In Northwest Indiana, that builder is 1st Metropolitan.


Since 1996, 1st Metropolitan has built high quality, custom luxury homes in Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. We believe the best homes are the result of timeless designs, with only the best materials in the hands of true craftsmen. Call us today to find out how we can help build your dream home.
