We needed an innovative full service construction company to convert an empty floor of a historic building into a luxury condominium. Others had recommended Knutson Custom Construction and we couldn’t be more satisfied. They clearly had a vision and passion for the project and started working on the design within days of our first meeting. Their highly skilled craftsmen had creative solutions for any needed modifications and were pleasant and patient with us throughout the process. Andrew and Aaron were wonderful to work with and kept everything moving forward in spite of numerous COVID related supply chain issues. They never made excuses and always answered our calls. We very much enjoyed working with a local company that has the highest integrity and treats their employees with great respect. The finished product was even better that we envisioned and the quality of their work is unsurpassed! We highly recommend Knutson Custom Construction.

The Knutson team is excellent!

They are very thorough and thoughtful and do a beautiful job.

They are professional, clean and easy to work with…Highly recommend

I knew I needed and wanted my 1970s kitchen remodeled. I reached out to Knutson Construction because they came highly recommended. I had no idea what I wanted the new kitchen to look like but they had their own interior designer that gave sat down with us. Along with her recommendations and our suggestions we came up with the perfect design. The remodel crew was amazing. Always checking in with us. Together we built the perfect kitchen that I am still enjoying today. My only question is…Why didn’t I do it earlier? Thanks Knutson Crew!

Knutson Custom Construction was a supportive creative collaborator from design to build in the renovation project to achieve our dream home. The design team was flexible and encouraging as we added to or modified the plan during the construction process. The building crew was professional, talented and engaging. My input was considered and often sought. It was clear my satisfaction in the final product was the goal. People often talk about how stressful home building can be. While we certainly faced some unavoidable challenges, overall I found the experience uniquely enjoyable….

A beautiful eclectic chefs kitchen

Everyone worked hard and was respectful. The job moved along consistently until it was finished. Everything looks great.

One of my best friends is the sister of Andrew Knutson, a partner in Knutson Construction. So I spoke with Andrew about a bid on my remodeling project to be done by Knutson. I interview a few other reputable companies in the area and decided to go with Knutson because I had seen the quality of their work and I trusted him and his family. Andrew brainstormed remodeling ideas with me and the team went to work. Everyone worked hard and was respectful. The job moved along consistently until it was finished. Everything looks great. All the work was done professionally. I have no complaints. Knutson does quality work.

A beautiful stress-free kitchen

” I love my new kitchen in my old house! Style and function, there was no compromise! “

Before the remodel, only one cook could fit in the kitchen, now my husband can teach the kids how to cook and we didn’t have to add one square foot.

I love my new kitchen in my old house! Style and function, there was no compromise!

The construction team were true professionals, very courteous and extremely talented!

We are so pleased with our basement…

“I am seriously over the moon about that fireplace; it is exactly what I had pictured and hoped for! You do great work… “

I just wanted to thank you for your hard work and talent!  We are so pleased with the basement.  Our boys have just been running in circles down there, and Jasper has the biggest smile I have seen in a long time (pumped about his bed). I am seriously over the moon about that fireplace; it is exactly what I had pictured and hoped for!  You do great work, and I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family!  Looking forward to the bathroom vanity top coming in and having our whole home back in working order & not just having our 2 bedroom apartment (upstairs).  I know things have been a little crazy with the whole COVID thing and I felt like your workers never skipped  a beat especially- Mark, Tim, Jim and his son (forgot his name); they were creative, friendly and diligent.  Wishing you and your team a great summer.

Sincerely,
The Zemler Crew

Reclaiming parts of an old cabin and creating something new

We needed a contractor who was going to let us be hands-on with some of the work, because there were things we wanted to do ourselves.

When Duluth residents Kat and Eric Lauer decided to build a family cabin, they turned to the contractor who built their dream kitchen just two years before. This was important, because the Lauer’s had some very specific ideas for the cabin and wanted a contractor who would work closely with them to achieve their vision, which included reclaiming some parts of an old cabin that once stood on their lakefront property.

“We needed a contractor who was going to let us be hands-on with some of the work, because there were things we wanted to do ourselves,” says Kat. That work included Eric making rustic sliding doors for the main entrances and installing their own kitchen cabinets. The couple also created a custom ceiling in part of the house using galvanized metal salvaged from the previous owners’ cabin.

Another personal touch — a small, insulated bunkhouse with windows that the Lauer’s daughters have claimed as their own during weekend trips to the cabin. “The girls just love being out there,” says Lauer. “We often communicate with walkie talkies when the girls are out there.”

Knutson’s ability to share control of a project has led the Lauers to recommend the construction company to several friends. “Not everyone is going to be comfortable with you doing that much work, but Andrew treated us like real partners in the process,” says Kat. The result — a cabin the entire family loves. “Andrew is truly committed to doing what it takes to ensure you’re getting a quality product,” says Kat.

The Coop Majahl

Because coop construction is fast and relatively easier, it’s an affordable investment that will benefit your family for years.

Want to raise your own chickens without sacrificing the aesthetics of your back yard? Consider having one built by Knutson Custom Construction — that’s what Duluth residents Kat and Eric Lauer did with great results.

The “Coop Majahl,” as the family jokingly calls it, is a simple but attractive design that adds to the ambiance of their yard. Big enough for their four laying hens and three bantam chickens, the coop has an automatic door that makes it easy for the birds to get in and out.
