With over 30 years of experience in home building, architecture, and design, Curt Swanson’s knowledge, passion, and talent for creating custom homes has left a trail of satisfied clients since 1986. That’s when he took over the family business and made it his own, putting his own stamp on the company.  His love for relevant architecture, intuitive floorplans, and graceful design is demonstrated in every home he builds.

When you choose to build with Swanson Homes you’re guaranteed to work with industry experts that specialize in residential architecture, personalized design, and quality craftsmanship which has produced Artisan quality homes in a variety of architectural styles.

“Our design process is our major strength,” Swanson explains of his teams, which consists of the construction business, “Swanson Homes,” and a full service design studio.  An ASID accredited designer ensures that architectural plans are consistent with the vision, style and functional objectives of the client. “The goal is authentic architectural detail and interior finishes that capture the very essence of a client’s personality.”

Customization begins as the client’s style, needs and desires are translated into features, floorplans, and elevations.   At the same time, the home site is evaluated for the best possible way to situate the home for enhanced room views, and maximized indoor and outdoor usability.

Each feature of a project is carefully evaluated to align with the homeowner’s pre-established budget.  “We look at each line item and evaluate costs to ensure clients are getting the best value…and we really shop hard without compromising design details,” says Swanson.  Cost considerations are regularly reviewed and Swanson excels at maximizing unique design aspects and materials within a desired budget.

After a project is completed, Swanson’s service team is ready to take care of needs that might arise.  They are available at any time after completion, but will make a point to contact homeowners at scheduled intervals, to offer service and assure satisfaction.

At this level of residential construction, an expert team makes all the difference.  Curt Swanson’s oversight of the talented architectural team, seasoned construction staff, professional sub-contractors, and dedicated interior design firm, makes Swanson Homes a sought-after home builder in the Twin Cities.
