So you’re thinking about building a house?
We’ve built so many homes that we could do it in our sleep (but we promise to stay awake for it!)
I know what you're thinking, and we're going to stop you before the, “but building a house is stressful,” thought creeps into your head. That’s where we come in!
From the initial napkin sketch, through construction, down to hanging the last piece of artwork - our team oversees every step of your project. You don’t have to worry about a no-show plumber, wrong material getting installed, or a designer not communicating with the builder. Being design-build, we take care of it all.
We hand-pick trade partners we trust who share our passion for quality. Should any issue arise, you can rest assured that we will be there to correct it immediately.
Start by filling out our new client questionnaire so we can learn more about your project.
We are licensed in MN and Summit County, CO. We focus primarily on the Twin Cities metro area, specializing in lake lots and teardowns. We will take on projects throughout MN depending on their size and scale. While we don't build outside of those areas (yet), you can still work with our interior design team remotely.
Location is the biggest factor to consider. Be aware if the property has city sewer and water or if you will need a well and septic system. Many of our projects are on well and septic, so it will add at least $30k to the cost of your lot. We highly recommend doing soil tests if the lot is not developed, as bad soil can be extremely costly, and pilings may be necessary on some lake lots.
We take care of everything! This includes the permits, construction, hiring trades, ordering materials, landscaping , etc. We cover it all so you don't have to.
No. We have an award winning design team and we create all plans in house. That being said, if you already have plans from an architect, we are happy to still build your home.
We recommend starting earlier than you think! At a minimum, at least a year before you are hoping to move in. Permitting and variances can take many months, and we do book out quickly. Signing our design agreement holds your spot in our queue, even if you don't plan to start design or construction for a year or more.
Every home is different based on the scope, size, and finishes, but we recommend planning for at least $300/SF for the build (not including land).
We do not get involved in the land procurement process, but we know great realtors we recommend you work with.
Our clients traditionally pay cash for their build, or they do a construction loan through a local bank.
