It’s All In The Technique

BrainerdLakehomeHow we build our homes is key to our success. Here are just a few ways B-Dirt Construction stands apart from other builders.

Many builders in northern Minnesota use block or poured cement basements. These methods can leak, and are not energy efficient. B-Dirt Construction uses Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF). These are interlocking modular units that are dry-stacked and filled with concrete. We add pre-engineered rebar to the ICFs to reinforce their strength. The forms are left in place which increases efficiency and makes your basement warm and inviting.

Another B-Dirt Construction difference is that we use blown-in blanket insulation in our walls, not R-19 fiberglass batting. This not only provides an R-24 value, but it fills in all the hard-toreach areas in the wall cavity.

We go to the trouble of insulating your home—really well. So why not heat it equally as well? B-Dirt Construction installs dual-heat systems that allow you to not only switch between gas or electric, but you also receive lower kilowatt rates at most local utilities.

You know that your home will be well built, well insulated, and well heated. Finally, put your mind at ease knowing that its exterior is also of the best quality. James Hardie cement board siding has won numerous awards for it’s durability. It is resistant to rain, wind, snow, sun and hail. Only the best for B-Dirt Construction clients.

Planning Ahead

CrosslakeCabinBuilderB-Dirt (Crosslake custom home builder) had a recent query from a prospective client concerning a future retirement property. He currently lives in Iowa, and eventually would like to build a retirement home on a piece of property he will one day inherit in Clearwater. He wondered about the logistics of building a home while not in the area and able to check on it regularly. He asked if this was even feasible to think about so many years in advance.

Not only is B-Dirt able to discuss and help you plan years in advance, we have done so regularly! We offer ideas and designs that will lead you to the best decision on the timing and cost of your eventual retirement home. B Dirt recommends coming in to meet with us face-to-face for about an hour to discuss what type of home you are looking for and how you plan to use it: will it be a seasonal or year-round residence? We will discuss how we can manage your project from a distance. We do this frequently, as many of our customers are out of the area at the time of construction. Another option we offer is free townhouse rental as your property is being built, if you decide to wait until you retire to move up here. We look forward to making your dream a reality...no matter how far in the future it is!
