About Us

Even when it’s about us, it’s about you.

Our experience building with Nor-Son was excellent. Having done numerous other construction projects in the past, we knew that their attention to detail was exceptional and they cared as much about the finished product as we did. They not only completed the project on-time but they continue to be incredibly responsive post-completion which is invaluable.

We couldn’t have had a better experience building with Nor-Son! The project went very smoothly, the attention to detail was superb and the quality of work is second to none. We are forever grateful to Nor-Son for creating such a beautiful home for our family.

In a world of shortcuts, we could rely on Nor-Son to use only the best quality materials and construction methods, whether visible or not.

In the past 33 years, my husband and I have either built a house or done an extensive remodel a total of 7 times. Nor-Son is by far the best contractor we have ever worked with to create the home of our dreams. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and quality of work is unmatched.

You [Nor-Son] promised and you delivered. On behalf of my family and myself, we would like to thank everyone involved in this project. What a great job you have done!

This land has been in our family since 1952 and has now passed to the 2nd generation. With Nor-Son, we have built a lasting home for this generation and the next, hoping to honor the land and our family’s history here. Nor-Son’s talented and attentive professional team strove to capture this history in design, craftsmanship and spirit. Our new home feels like we’ve been here for years.

Homeowners, Modern Farmhouse




We wanted to bring the outside in at every turn, so utilizing the outdoors was always critical to us. The entire team worked well together and put their ideas on the table. We had a lot of fun. They've become our friends.

Homeowners, Cedar Glen




I have built 3 previous homes and this was by far the most enjoyable.

Homeowners, Twilight Retreat




The schedule was aggressive and pushed the whole team. Patience is required when you work with a detail related company. Nor-Son managed this well. We have a wonderful outcome and a work of art.

Homeowner, Historic Stone Manor




The craftsmanship was of the highest caliber we have encountered. Nor-Son performed with a positive, can-do attitude on some very technically challenging areas, including compound curved construction, complex configurations and tight tolerances.

Trees around the site were so thoroughly protected that it took three hours for our supply truck to carefully back out of the quarter-mile trail.

Homeowners, Reclaimed Estate




We were amazed by the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail your personnel executed, bringing our dream to life. We are very proud to share this beautifully crafted home with our friends and family for years to come.

Homeowners, Bohemian Log




Lofted above the four-car garage, an unexpectedly charming space welcomes guests with a cozy kitchenette, an inviting living room, bedroom and bath.

Homeowners, Custom Comfort




The unique woodwork found throughout the home represents our passion and poetically mirrors the northern forest where many of the species were originally harvested.

Homeowners, Crafted Cottage




Every person who visits our house, whether from New York or New Delhi, comments on its unique features and craftsmanship. Thank you so much for bringing 1917 back to life on our long-time family property.

As a boutique residential builder, Nor-Son was built on the principles of craftsmanship and collaboration, because building a home should be a seamless process. You should feel assured your team, from architect to interior designer to builder, understand your vision. This collaborative process has been in our DNA since 1978, and it's how we're able to deliver such a high standard of customer service for a stress-free building experience..

This has been our purpose for 40 years. This is how we live it out:

  • Integrating architecture and construction, so that those who design understand and complement those who build.
  • Blending form, function, aesthetics and cost intelligence.
  • Ensuring that design creativity has a firm grounding in construction reality.
  • Transforming your vision into a home that is uniquely yours and perfectly suited to your site.

At Nor-Son, the safety, health and well-being of our employees, customers and partners continues to be our top priority as the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve.  We have developed a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan in response to the pandemic and continue to make updates, as necessary.

Our offices in both Baxter and Wayzata remain closed to the public with visitors allowed by appointment only. 

Our jobsites continue to be fully operational and we have implemented protocols to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19.  We have a dedicated team to manage situations that may arise related to COVID-19 and have communication procedures in place that ensure that we promptly notify employees, owners, subcontractors, and other partners if necessary.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and do our part to keep our employees, their families, and our communities safe.

We look forward to the new year!

Andy Anderson
