New Home Construction!

New Home Construction!

While our day to day business consists mainly of home remodeling and handyman projects, we usually build about one custom home each year. It is a nice change of pace and enjoyable to see something truly built from the ground up. We're in the process of building a new home in St. Cloud -- check out these construction photos and watch the video of the concrete footings being poured.
