Do You Have Home Designers On Staff Or Do I Hire My Own?


One of the main values of using B-Dirt Construction for your home building needs is that we have two home designers right on staff. Having your building designer and builder in one place has countless advantages, from both a cost and aesthetic perspective. We can tell you up front what home features may add cost but not value, and which features will add value but not necessarily add cost.

Our goal is to design into your budget. We will work closely with you and discuss all of your needs for your home, as well as making your style and square footage goals fit within your budget. We look at every aspect of your experience, from ideal location on your piece of property, to the finishing touches on every design aspect.

We will let you know up front what your costs will be with B-Dirt before you spend a single penny. We will finish your home on time, on budget, and keep in constant communication with you every step of the way. Contact B-Dirt Construction (Brainerd, MN) today 218-821-5243 for your free consultation, and watch our CAD 3D software bring your dream to life!

The B-Dirt Construction Home Building Approach


B-Dirt Construction (Brainerd, MN home builders) has a unique approach to home building, allowing you to be part of the process from the very first free consultation. We intertwine house design, amenities, and budget.

    We will walk the site with you, determining:
  • which type of home design best suits the landscape
  • house placement
  • desired proximity to neighbors
    We also go over all the details in the home itself. We will determine your goals as far as:
  • layout
  • house style
  • room orientation
  • lifestyle (entertaining often, large family, etc.)
  • overall budget

The advantage of building with B-Dirt is having both home designers and builders on our staff. The first step is designing the exterior and floor plan. When this is complete we go room by room and discuss finishes such as flooring, wall coverings, cabinets, and lighting. We also discuss energy efficiency and insulation. With all these advantages, B-Dirt Construction is the clear choice for your home building needs. Call us today 218-821-5243 and set up your free, no obligation consultation! We look forward to meeting you.

The B-Dirt Advantage


Maximizing the value of your home is what B-Dirt Construction does best. Some of our impressive list of features that we offer include:

  • ICF (Insulating Concrete Forms). These are sturdier and much more energy-efficient than traditional concrete block foundations.
  • Blown-in blanket insulation. This is superior to traditional insulation, filling all the hard-to-reach areas, providing much better energy-efficiency.
  • Dual-heat systems. This allows you to switch between gas or electric heat, and offers lower kilowatt rates at most local utility companies.

Are you considering building a new home in 2015? Wondering if energy efficiency is in your budget? We walk you through the options, the costs, and the results of energy efficiency - leaving you feeling informed and sure of the energy efficiency of your new home.

With all of these advantages, B-Dirt maximizes the energy efficiency and value of your home. Call us today 218-821-5243 for your free, no obligation consultation.
