New home or remodeling?  Residential or commercial?  You’ve come to the right place.  90 years ago, we started out building small summer cabins on Lake Superior.  Now we do virtually any size construction project small to big.  Need a door knob replaced?  No problem.  New cabin for your lot?  Right up our alley.

New home construction has long been our specialty.  You may be looking for simple cabin nestled in the woods, or a luxury design taking advantages of spectacular views of Lake Superior.  We design and build homes from 800-8,000 square feet.  

It is your home or cabin.  We do not offer stock designs because each of you has unique needs and taste.  We collaborate with you to create a design that achieves your vision and matches your budget.  We do our own site prep, working to preserve trees and other environmental treasures.  We work with your site to attain best views, driveway and septic layouts, and elevations to blend your cabin into its surroundings.
Your project is a piece of art, a sculpture to be exact.  Our crews tend to think of themselves as artists as they work to create your unique structure.  When they’re done, they are pleased to sign their name as if it were a painting.  

We use higher quality lumber, windows, shingles and other materials because, in the end, it saves money.  And you end up with a much better home.  Combine excellent materials with master craftsmen and the result is your dream you will want to be awake for.

We have done many light commercial and multi unit condo’s over the years.  Fireweed Building (home of Gunflint Tavern), Lutsen Mountains ski chalet, Aspenwood townhouses, Lutsen Sea Villas, Great Expectations School are projects we’ve done in the area.  We can work with your architect or do our own design for your project depending on complexity.  We’ve had experience not only with building, but also in manufacturing and professional office work, so we can help with production and traffic flows.

Looking to upgrade your septic system?  Call us, we’re licensed designers and installers, and we have a pretty good eye for landscaping when we’re done.  We own our own gravel pit complete with washing/crushing so we can deliver the right sand, gravel or boulders for your project.  We do all site prep from foundations to landscaping with our crews so we know its being done to the way to you want it.
