Often imitated. Never duplicated. It’s impossible to do what we do without being right-sized. You still work directly with the owners to handle the intricate details of designing and building your home.

How did you get started in the building industry?

We are a second-generation company. Our dad, Larry, started building homes in 1989. We joined him as partners in 2003, and he has since retired.

What sets your company apart?

Involvement from all three of the owners is what sets us apart. We are on-site multiple times throughout the week with three sets of eyes overlooking all stages of the build. Also, owning our own framing company and trimming company helps in today’s environment with a high level of quality control.

What inspires and influences your work?

We try to be different and always bring new ideas to home design. We work to find ways to make our clients’ lives simpler and smarter and to design places for families to create new memories while enjoying their home through Minnesota’s four seasons.

What do you enjoy most about building custom homes?

Delivering homes to our clients that we would love to call home and enjoy with our own families.

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

Each owner is highly involved with each project—from first meeting with the clients to any warranty work after they move in, they’re always dealing with the owner.

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

The most important elements are owner involvement from all three owners who aren’t just behind the desk but are onsite all the time; having a good design team as well as our interior designer, Teresa; and owning our own framing and trimming crews.

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

By listening to them. From the first time we meet through design and selections with our interior designer—it is both the teamwork of our staff and listening to our client’s needs and wants that makes the entire project possible!

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

We are more drawn to the transitional design trends, but Teresa, our interior designer, has a great modern style that makes us a great team. It brings in a twist from both sides.
