What We Do

Who Would You Choose to Build your legacy?

Our superior craftsmen combine building science with skilled artistry to transform every design detail into a stunning, one-of-a-kind, meticulously built home—the kind of home you can hand down for generations.

Each Nor-Son home undergoes a thorough inspection, ensuring it not only lives up to our precise standards, but to yours.

Your architect, or ours, it’s all in the details.
We dot every i, cross every t and make sure you see
yourself living there before we pound the first nail.


Craftsmanship and construction are two
very different things, and you can feel
it the moment you walk through the door.

You didn’t build this home to work on it.
And no one is better suited to care
for it than the people who crafted it.

No one builds like Nor-Son.

It's About You.

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

As a boutique residential builder headquartered in the Brainerd Lakes Area, Nor-Son Custom Builders was built on the principles of craftsmanship and collaboration, because building a home should be a seamless process. With two convenient Minnesota-based locations in the Lake Minnetonka area and Brainerd Lakes area, 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 is our purpose. 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.
