Detail Design + Build
Why should someone build with you? What’s your “edge?”
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 can.
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 a part of this great city and we genuinely get excited about every project we have the opportunity to work on. When we have an open house and past clients stop in just to say hi, that means a lot to us.
