HOW DID YOU GET YOUR START IN CUSTOM HOMEBUILDING?
I started in the building and real estate industry in the 1970s by remodeling homes and apartment buildings. In 1978, I built my first new home in Blaine, and that’s when I knew construction was my thing.
WHAT DO YOU WISH OTHERS KNEW ABOUT YOUR COMPANY?
Our team is committed to our community and volunteers our time and talent. We have built two homes for ABC-TV’s Extreme Makeover show and completed eight projects for the DIY Network’s Bath Crashers for deserving families.
HOW DO YOU BRING A CLIENT’S VISION TO LIFE?
Our showroom really helps inspire clients whom we hand-hold all the way through the process. They have all our phone numbers, and we hold both onsite and office meetings. We work closely with our clients to make sure the home we build is exactly the home they want.
WHAT SETS YOUR COMPANY APART?
For decades, we’ve been ahead of the times in constructing energy-efficiency and cold-climate houses. Our Super Energy Design lessens the impact of housing on our environment and your wallet. Our combination of innovative building techniques creates comfort in the home while reducing energy consumption and cost.
WHY DO YOU THINK YOUR CLIENTS CHOOSE YOU AS THEIR BUILDER?
We’ve built a great reputation across the Twin Cities for our high-quality, creative, and energy-efficient homes. We have been building and remodeling for over 40 years and will never take shortcuts. Our homes are custom designed to exceed most building standards. Through the years, TJB Homes has examined every component of the building design and continues to look for improvements that can be implemented.
