HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN HOMEBUILDING?
We are a second-generation company. Our dad, Larry, started building homes in 1989 and we joined him as partners in 2003.
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 all our different seasons here in Minnesota.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR TEAM’S APPROACH TO A NEW PROJECT?
We approach a project with a lot of owner involvement—from meeting with the clients first to any warranty work after you move in.
WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENTS OF A SUCCESSFUL BUILD TEAM?
Consistency from house to house. We have our own checklists that each of us follows with all our homes to ensure our clients are getting a home that we as owners would love to call home. We are consistent and deliver this type of home every time.
WHAT SETS YOUR COMPANY APART?
Our owner involvement with all our clients from start to after you move in and having our own employees for finish and framing carpenters for quality control set us apart.
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?
I would say 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.
WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD TO BE A BUILDER?
Delivering our clients’ homes that we would love to call home.
