Planning Your Retirement Home - When Is The Right Time to Build for You?


Planning your retirement home? Working the numbers and figuring your dream home into your portfolio or investment planning is wise - and increasingly common practice for some of our homeowners.

But when do you start your portfolio or investment planning for your retirement or dream home? That depends on a lot of factors, but anywhere between 18-36 months before you plan on starting construction is a good time to start portfolio and/or investment planning for a future lake house or retirement home.

Now is the perfect time for your free, no-obligation consultation with B-Dirt Construction, to figure out how much the lake house or retirement home is going to cost, and what financial investments are needed to make your dream a reality!

Contact B-Dirt Construction 218-821-5243 to get started today.

Residential Home Framing - is ICF the Right Choice for You?


Insulated Concrete Forms or ICF is a possible building system choice for your next custom home. But is it for you? 

One of the benefits of Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) is that it increases efficiency and reduces the number of vendors and trades that have to be managed and co-ordinated. With ICFs, designers have more freedom to create. They are also the most solid and easiest product to install, reducing homeowner costs.

Insulated Concrete Form walls provide six wall elements:

  • Concrete
  • Reinforcement bar
  • Insulation
  • Air barrier
  • Vapor barrier
  • Furring strips

Choosing to build with ICFs will give you a greener, more comfortable home today and a home that will be tomorrow’s standard for energy efficiency.

  • Additional Benefits
  • Frost resistant
  • Mold resistant
  • Crack resistant
  • Pest resistant
  • Waterproof
  • No drywall nail pops

B-Dirt Construction (Brainerd, MN) is your complete home builder - from installing ICFs to the rafters on homes.  Interested in building? Thinking about designing your dream home? We here at B-Dirt would love to get together and talk through our process. Please give us a call 218-821-5243 - we look forward to hearing from you!
