The Building Team


Pete Semler

Title- Founder, President and CEO
Office: 763-754-5578

Pete meets with all Customers in the beginning at the pre-construction meeting. He explains, in detail, the plans of your new home and discusses the building process and the importance of having great communication throughout. Pete encourages your involvement and questions during the construction period.

We always hear Pete telling each Homeowner: “Now I want you to have fun at this.” He can be very matter-of-fact, yet very easy to get along with. His dedication to his customers, trade partners and employees is exemplary. He truly is a “really likable guy”!
