Our goal is to build timeless, beautiful homes that not only fit into the community—but also fit how people live today.

Why should someone build with you? Our company is heavily design based, an essential—if not crucial—aspect of building a new home in a well-established historic neighborhood. (Much of our business is in the Crocus Hill, Macalester-Groveland, and Highland Park neighborhoods of St. Paul.)

What factors are most important when working with suppliers? Service and quality go hand-in-hand. We’ve found that companies who provide excellent service often provide a great product. We also feel it’s important to support local businesses/companies whenever we have the opportunity.

Can you help homeowners find the right lot? Finding the right lot is one of our strengths. We have a vast knowledge of historic St. Paul neighborhoods.

What are some trends you’re noticing  in the marketplace when it comes to new construction? People want a classic home from the exterior with a clean, modern interior. We’ve also noticed that people are asking more about closing rooms in. The open concept hasn’t gone away, but a clear definition of space has become more prevalent in the last few years. Smart home amenities, wallpaper, and burnished brass elements are also still popular.

We take great pride in … being part of the community. We run into clients on a regular basis, while grocery shopping, dropping the kids off at school, going out to eat, or attending community events. We love being part of this great city and we genuinely get excited about every project we are involved with. When we have an open house and past clients stop in just to say hi, that means a lot to us.

How long have you been in business? 20 years

How did you get your start in this business? I’ve been in the construction industry my whole life—I grew up in the trades.

Why should someone build with you? We listen to our clients and follow their wish list, offer superior craftsmanship, and have a proven track record of innovative architectural and interior design.   

In order of importance, what are the top three things you look for from a supplier? Exceptional product quality, product knowledge, and service.  

What communities do you primarily build in? We primarily build in the eastern half of the metro and western Wisconsin. We specialize in designing/building on unique lots, including the St. Croix River and other waterfront properties that require experience in the management of government regulatory bodies.

What’s the first step in the process of working with a builder/remodeler? First and foremost the client should look at other homes built by that company. Check out the reputation of the builder, their level of customer satisfaction, and overall creativity in architectural and interior design.

What are some trends you’re noticing in the marketplace now as far as new construction? Tile floors in general living areas, low-maintenance products, smaller single-level living spaces, smart home technology, and special accommodations for family pets.

How many luxury homes do you build annually? We build 8-10 luxury homes per year.
