HOW we are different

“Working with Blue Heron Homes was an absolute pleasure. Jason Mathena and Olivia Lowry were exceptional in listening to what we wanted to accomplish and then making that happen. We even threw a few curve balls their way during the build process and everything was handled with ease. After living in the home for almost a year now, we can also say that the quality is second to none. We have built numerous homes in the past and this is the only one that has had almost no issues at year one. Although we feel like we built our dream forever home, if we do decide to go through the process again, we would certainly use Blue Heron Homes.” – Brian

Building Green

Better performance… Better build quality… Lower overall costs of ownership… Lower impact to our environment… ALL at the same time, every time we build a home. Every home Blue Heron Signature Homes builds is a High Performance Home, meeting the NGBS Green standards, the most rigorous in our industry.
Our view is that our homes need to be far more than a pretty elevation, and high-end interior finishes. They need to last longer, function better, and be more comfortable.

High Performance Defined

Building a High Performance Home is a combination of staying at the forefront of building science, specifying better materials, and applying better onsite building practices. Other builders may be satisfied in meeting local codes. We stretch beyond it.

Energy – your home will use significantly less power than a home that only meets local codes
Indoor Air Quality – your home will have less airborne allergens and dust, and maintain a more consistent and comfortable temperature
Materials – your home will be composed of materials that have a longer life cycle, require less maintenance and have recycled content origins when possible
Site Management – while your home is constructed, water run-off and debris will be handled in ways that help keep our water resources pristine
Water Conservation – your home itself, your landscaping and your irrigation system will be optimized to reduce usage

Independent Certification and Testing

Our High Performance Homes are inspected and certified by independent third-party construction professionals. There are two thorough onsite inspections – the first occurs following framing and preceding drywall, the other occurs at completion. You don’t have to take our word that we build a better home… Take theirs.


When you choose Blue Heron Signature Homes, the very people that help you plan the home of your dreams are the very people that will oversee every detail of its construction.

Communication is clear and concise, and nothing gets lost in translation.


With a strong foundation of trust, integrity and experience in the luxury market, we value each aspect of the home building process. Our clients are the heart-beat of what we do, day in and day out.

Award winning Design

From Parade of Homes to MAME Awards, we are honored to be recipients of multiple awards and accolades for our designs in numerous categories.

– Brian Bus

My wife and I first discovered Blue Heron Signature Homes during the Raleigh Parade of Homes in 2018. At the time, we were not ready to build, but loved the attention to detail and the obvious quality of the home we toured. When we decided to build about a year later, we knew we should reach out to them to see if it would truly be a good fit. At the time, they had a few lots they could build on and one of them was exactly what we were looking for. From the first moment we sat down with the Blue Heron team, we felt like they really cared about our vision and were not just looking for another customer.
