MDS Remodeling, LLC

Mitch Shepheard

How did you get started in the building industry?

Mitch started his apprenticeship with his father at age 15 where he was taught many valuable skills and acquired a great deal of knowledge. He has continued to hone his residential remodeling and custom homebuilding skills. We have expanded into commercial renovations and excel in creating beautiful hand-crafted interiors and exteriors.

What are the most important elements of a successful build team?

Successful building hinges on detail-oriented communication skills and a shared devotion to an agreed-upon outcome. We are lucky to employ our own seasoned carpenters and tradespeople that manage and produce quality work.

What do you enjoy most about building custom homes?

Much like planting a seed, watching a homeowner’s dream come true from conceptual drawings to creating a home from the ground up is a satisfaction like no other — especially when that home is customized exactly to a homeowner’s specifications.

What are some of your favorite trends and styles in new construction?

We are loving the trend towards sustainable, timeless construction. We love knowing we are helping clients create a legacy home.

What sets your company apart?

Our company brings an expert level of craftsmanship and attention to each project.

What inspires and influences your work?

We are inspired by the families who trust us to create usable, comfortable, and beautiful spaces that last the test of time.

How would you describe your team’s approach to a new project?

New projects are an exciting time to gather all our client’s hopes and dreams for their space. We approach a new project with excitement, education, and knowledge of what to expect from start to finish.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

We actively listen and evaluate a client’s needs and wants, as well as help assess what is possible for the space. The next step is to collaborate with a variety of hand-selected Minnesota businesses — both large and small — to ensure no detail is overlooked and we have the best outcome.
