Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: We are a family-owned, full-service home improvement contractor built on the pillars of Trust, Quality, and Value. We left successful careers in education to build a unique remodeling company: one that is customer-centric, educated, and totally focused on delivering high quality for a fair price. We are licensed, insured, EPA endorsed LEAD-safe, and CAPS (Certified Aging in Place) credentialed by the National Association of Home Builders. We offer: *Kitchen and Bath Remodeling *Basement finishing *Home Rehabilitation *Outdoor living projects: saunas, decks, gazebos, shed/playhouse hybrids, etc. I decided to leverage a life-time of passion and experience designing and building residential spaces in this, our new company. I suppose we got tired of complaining about how companies tend to run nowadays--shoddy work, overpriced, not interested in what we want, poor customer service, etc.--and decided to build one that operates the way we think business should be run. Honestly, and with a customer-oriented focus on quality and value. We're having a great time and you'll sense this in your work with us!

Kitchen Remodel

Nate was great to work with. He helped us come up with a design and layout for our kitchen makeover that best fit our space. Our kitchen turned out beautifully and we highly recommend Prairie Home Improvement!

General Contracting

Nate was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very punctual, got his work done ahead of schedule, and was very respectful of our home. My wife was able to contact Nate with daily concerns and he reached out to her quickly and was incredibly responsive to her concerns and issues. What drew us to Nate firstly was when he came to give us a quote on the project he seemed most professional of the contractors we had talked to, had provided the most readable quote that broke every part of the project down in an understandable fashion, and he was the nicest most willing to work with our needs contractor. Nate was able to work a little outside of his comfort zone with a specialized cabinet maker that we provided and made didn't hesitate to go out of his way to make sure we got everything that we needed while keeping us within budget. In addition to being a joy to work with and very professional, Nate also offered a lot of ideas to maximize space and get the most out of our project. He had many suggestions that we ended up utilizing and with every product endorsement he gave we knew we could trust what he said and go with his word. All in all I couldn't recommend Nate highly enough. The rating system only allowed for a 5 star review and I truly think he deserves more than that. I have and will continue to recommend Nate to any of our family or friends who are looking to remodel or change something in their homes.

From day one he kept me informed thought out the entire process and answered my many questions quickly. He was very respectful, trustworthy, thorough and clean. My bathroom turned out beautiful and just how I envisioned it :) I would not hesitate to hire him again! Excellent experience. Thank you Nate!

Nate was responsive, professional, efficient, timely, and technically proficient. He explained the next steps needed to repair the sink drain pipe and issues he encountered with some electrical work. He exhibited care and compassion for the tasks needing to be done. The jobs were finished within his estimated time frame. I would highly recommend Nate for needs and jobs.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Given the highly particular nature of residential work, we do not provide estimates site unseen. Instead, we gather as much information as possible, visit the site, and provide an accurate estimate for the whole job. We accept cash, check, bank transfer,, and all major credit cards (2.75% surcharge).

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We like to gather as much information as possible before settling on a bid. Typically, meeting with customers is the best way to get a firm sense of the job and how they would like to see it accomplished. In addition, we can help you think about aspects of the project you might not have thought of. These are useful conversations for both parties!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a college educated, licensed residential builder in Minnesota. In a former life, I worked and taught in higher education for 15 years.
