Business Description
We're a 40 year old family-run business - a boutique builder - building only 10 - 15 upper bracket homes each year.

While we're based in Minnesota, we're willing and able to take on significant projects throughout the country. Our unique, web-based management system allows us to oversee projects long distance and keep our clients informed. We've partnered with to develop tools never before seen in the construction industry.

All of our projects are built on a fully transparent/open book basis, locking into a firm budget before construction begins. Our clients have full access to all of the bids and invoices on their project & our fee is a percentage of the total project cost, listed as a line item on the budget. We competitively bid each category of the work to 2-3 subcontractors. This ensures that we are getting the best pricing possible, from a group of contractors that we know to deliver our expected level of quality.

As a part of our construction process, and as a part of our construction fee, we assist our clients through construction selections and interior design. In addition, we partner with local Interior design firms to consider furnishing, window treatments, etc... early in the process. This integration ensures that furniture placement, size, & design is considered while laying out lighting, ceiling details, & general flow throughout the home. Our designers work from a 'library' of finishes: tile, wood flooring, hardware, etc.. that enable them to work very efficiently with our clients, & saves quite a bit of running around to multiple showrooms.

Sven is personally involved in the construction of all of our homes & employs 4 professional project managers that oversee the daily schedules at our homes. They typically manage no more than 2 projects at a given time, ensuring that you get the attention you need and deserve. Under our model, our project managers manage all aspects of the project - from schedule, management of contracts, changes, etc.

Please feel free to call if you'd like to discuss your project further.

We would be happy to give you a tour of some of our completed homes, as well as homes that we have under construction.
