At Lake Country Builders, we tailor our services to the specific dreams, styles and expectations of each customer
especially those interested in building sustainably. As part of our mission, we promote, design and create healthy homes that benefit the environment and the community. Our goal is to integrate green systems and products in the homes we build and remodel that save energy and water while reducing waste, purifying our world and helping save natural resources.
Covering all your Project Needs, from Start to Finish
At Lake Country, we value creativity. Our clients do also. A thought becomes a sketch that evolves into a plan that becomes a form. Picasso once said "Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success." Inspired architectural design has predominantly influenced our reputation as a versatile builder. We employ some of the best award winning creative talents in our local industry. Each client and project is different, so we begin with an interview and define a specific route to success. Weather it is a new home, remodeling or lakeshore cabin we believe design should have a sustainable focus and have a universal design intention. Our view is that success is greatly influenced by personal relationships, thoughtful design and passion. Years of designing and building fine projects have taught us, as Pablo states, "There is no other route to success".
New Home Construction
An urban tear down, that new found lot or a lake home in a stand of trees. We integrate design and construction to create and deliver the best solutions to fit your aesthetic, functional and budget goals. Our reputation was built on four decades of imagination, creativity and objectivity. We employ the best Architects and Interior Designers that fit your personality and style then merge a seasoned production team and on-staff carpenters to truly Handcraft Your Vision. When you love building it shows. It shows in a thousand construction details. It's evident in the passion you bring to design, planning, project management and customer service. It comes through the first meeting and every part in between. We're a family business and our people are our most prized resource. Love for the business has made Lake Country Builders one of the best home builders in the Twin Cities, Greater Minnesota and Northwestern Wisconsin.
It starts with a painting, not a blank canvas. It has content, color, form and a history. Remodeling redefines the artwork with brushstrokes that bring your vision to life. It puts ideas into action and involves movements that create confidence and long term relationships. Remodeling can be art form – and we like being an artist. Our team shares a passion for creativity and fine construction. We are devoted to excellent customer relations. Over the years, we have learned that each client and each project is unique. We listen and uncover your needs. We then agree on a path to design / build success. From it all, we have formed a time-tested philosophy and process that ensure success. We call it universal care. We will take good care of you, be friendly with your neighbors and we'll fix the flat tire. We go the extra mile, and leave you with a smile.
Customer Care Home Maintenance
One call. One company. Total care. Whether due to weather-related damage, equipment breakdowns or expected wear and tear, there comes a time when your home may need some extra TLC. Let our Customer Care department handle all your maintenance and repair needs. You'll get the same stellar quality and customer service that have become the Lake Country trademark! Our Customer Care Home Maintenance Division was originally created to address the unique needs of our design/build client base. Now we have expanded the division to provide our exceptional service to everyone, giving customers confidence that problems and repairs will be fixed right, handled professionally and completed on time and on budget.
Stay at Home (Aging in Place)
Stay at Home
In 2012, responding to a personal experience with aging parents, we added another arm of our company. "Stay at Home facilitates unassisted living for mature adults who want to maintain their lifestyle at home. We are empowering people to re-create their space and enjoy their stay at home," – Pete Jacobson. Both Peter and Sue Jacobson are CAPS (Certified Aging in Place Specialists). At Stay At Home, it is our mission to create a safe, beautiful environment for homeowners who wish to stay in their homes as they age. We offer a variety of services to improve the functionality of virtually every area of your home, both indoors and outdoors, so that you can maintain your independence and enjoy your stay at home. Visit our Stay At Home website [www.stayathomerenovation.com] for more information.
When You Love Building, It Shows
Love Your Home. A new build or retro-fit needs interior attention to detail, colors, products and textures. It takes creativity, imagination and the ability to visualize concepts and explain those to you. A new home might want to incorporate new trends while a remodel project may need to blend with the existing interiors. This is the art of Interior Design. We work closely with a small group of ASID professionals who tailor their services and fees to your specific needs. If you have someone else in mind, we will work closely with them and adapt our process to merge with theirs. We provide a seamless, well managed design experience and employ a staff selection coordinator who is a consummate communicator and ensures products arrive on time. The Goal is the Journey – and the Journey is the Goal.
We're passionate about protecting, preserving and enhancing the environment. For more than 10 years, our company culture, in both philosophy and practice, is to promote and create healthy homes that benefit the environment and the community. We consider it our responsibility to help educate customers and the broader public on the value of healthy home environments. The truth is you can have it all: a wonderful home that's perfect for your family while being environmentally friendly, too.

2019 Lake Home and Cabin Show | Feb 15-17th | Mpls
There's nothing more Minnesotan than spending your summer weekends at the cabin.
Some of us own or share a slice of "Cabin Heaven," while others are known as "OPC's" — we get invited to other people's cabins. Both of us are the lucky ones when there's a chair at the end of the dock for that first cup of morning coffee. We have a love affair with our lake homes and cabins and each year we rekindle it at the Lake Home & Cabin Show.
Now in its 15th year
The Lake Home & Cabin Show is Minnesota's ONLY show that specializes in second homes and the second home lifestyle. If you own a lake home, cottage or cabin or you want to own one this is a truly unique and focused event you'll want to experience. We'll see you in Minneapolis!
Here's a glimpse of what you'll find at the Lake Home & Cabin Show:
