Welcome, welcome, welcome to yet another Minnesota Builder to Know blog. Today, we’re going to be talking about ADŌR Homes (Formerly known as Kroiss Development), and what makes them one of the premier builders in the Metro Area and beyond.

First up, let’s break down a brief overview of ADŌR Homes before getting into their process and some of their homes you should check out!

About ADŌR Homes

ADŌR is a premier luxury home builder based in Excelsior, Minnesota, and a preferred general contractor for high-end architectural firms throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding areas.

As we already mentioned, ADŌR Homes used to be under the name Kroiss Development, but founder Todd Simning thought it was time to hit the refresh button. “It was time to rebrand and start a new era as we look toward the next 25 years and beyond,” reads their Houzz description.

But, Todd has taken his over 30 years of experience in development and construction with him during the rebrand. Todd is known for his leadership, passion, and creativity from those who have worked with him. And, speaking of work, Todd’s work ethic is one of the best you’ll see in the home building industry.

ADŌR Homes seeks out some of the most inspirational design partners to create spaces to ensure that unique homes are crafted for each client. At the core of their philosophy is integrity.

“Integrity is at the heart of everything we do, from the people we work with, to the materials we use, to superior artistry, and best-in-class service.” – From the ADŌR Homes Website

ADŌR Homes Process

The process that ADŌR Homes uses is part of the reason for how they can craft such lovely homes. Below is a brief outline of the process, which you can read in full on their site.


Like every great home that has ever been built, careful planning must be done to pull it off. Part of that planning stage involves, well, coming up with a plan. During this portion of the process, you’ll work with some brilliant creative voices to design a home tailored to your dreams.

Design Development

This part of the process will involve finalizing the design and budget of the home, which ADŌR Homes will help you every step of the way to ensure that your home turns out great while staying within your price range.

Construction Management

After the first two steps, construction on your new home will begin. Teaming up with contractors that they’ve been working with for quite some time, you know your home will be in good hands from the time the process begins, to when the final nail is hammered in.

Expectations Exceeded

Eventually, your home will be complete! And you can rest assured that the good folks will work with you closely to ensure that your expectations have been exceeded and that you are truly content with your new home.

Homes to View

Of course, one of the best ways to get a feel for how a home builder operates is by viewing some of their work. If you can’t view a home in person, then checking out the builder’s gallery on their website is a good alternative. Here is a link to ADŌR Homes’ gallery, as well as a few homes that highlight what they are all about (click on the home names to go to images of the homes).

Lake Minnetonka Equestrian Home

A gorgeously designed home that features both modern and classic elements, this is a great property to tell you everything you need to know about ADŌR Homes. Whether it’s the sleek bathroom with a lovely walk-in shower or the beautiful kitchen that has plenty of room to cook and entertain, this home shows how good ADŌR is at getting all the custom details right for their clients.

This home is the ideal summer spot, but it’s also easy to see that—regardless of the season—this property is the place to be.

Colonial Chic

Here is a great example of the range that ADŌR Homes can pull off, as we go back in time a bit and take a look at this Colonial Chic home. This house takes many classic designs and features and adapts them to a more modern setting, flawlessly, if we might add. With fun elements scattered throughout, the home is extremely inviting for all.

For the modernists reading, don’t worry, we got you covered. Take a look at this sensational set of homes that ADŌR brought to life in Minneapolis. It’s hard to pick out a favorite feature to point out, so we’ll let you decide after you take a look at the gallery. Absolutely stunning from top to bottom.

Urban Contemporary

Another contemporary home that features so many great details and features that there is something to look at every time you turn your head. Whether it’s that smooth staircase, the aesthetically pleasing and functional kitchen, or that patio out in the back, everything about this home is absolutely amazing.
