North Sierra Homes (NSH) specializes in the design and construction of mountain modern homes exclusively in the Nakoma Community. Efficiency is the guiding principal behind everything we do. “Efficiency” doesn’t just mean “cheap”. Despite all the emotion that is wrapped up in the concept of “home”, a home is a tool; it should function and you shouldn’t pay more for it than you need to. Because we’re able to guide you through the process of land use planning, design and construction, we’re able to deliver you the home that’s right for you. Our “dirt-to-doorknob” pricing eliminates surprise change orders mid-project. We seek efficiency and balance in designing your project; we take great care to optimize your home’s design both inside and out to produce a home that is a perfect fit with your vision and your budget.


Give us a call. We look forward to helping you find “home”.

Our History

Unique design-build approach with over 22 years of experience delivering to satisfaction.

Dan Gallagher, the principal at North Sierra Homes and a builder for over 22 years, has been involved with the Nakoma Community for over twelve years. His intimate knowledge of the properties and terrain gives him the unique ability to factor in the nuances of the land when creating a home design on a given piece of property. Dan specializes in optimizing views and privacy, as well as landscape features in the overall layout so your home feels completely congruent with its surrounding.

Dan also has a lot of experience in dealing with the various agencies, consultants and stakeholders in the area. This familiarity with the process and players takes a lot of the guesswork out of building a home.

North Sierra Homes takes care to ensure project costs are all accounted for from the start so there are no big surprises down the road. Design, engineering, surveying, permitting… it’s all part of the inclusive building cost.
