The Word Is Out

The Word Is OutB-Dirt, Brainerd residential home builder, knows that there is no higher praise than that from a satisfied customer. That's why we were thrilled to read this recent review:

"My wife and I recently finished building a house with B-Dirt, a builder in the Brainerd Lakes area. We wanted to share our experience, which was very positive, especially considering this is the first time we had ever undertaken any project larger than minor remodeling or landscaping.

We purchased a lot in Nisswa in 2014...Our goal was to work with a Lakes-area builder with a good reputation who could help us in all phases, from design through execution and finishing details. It was also important for us to have a strong working partnership and relationship with our builder—we live about 2.5 hours away in the Twin Cities , so the whole project was done long-distance, which made good communication critical. We really feel like we hit the jackpot when we found B-Dirt, a family run company with expertise in all phases: design, project execution, and finishing details.

We worked initially with an architect to develop the floor plan and other internal and external specifications. B-Dirt....offered proactive suggestions and modifications to improve it further...We next received a very detailed and thorough bid...

...we quickly became very impressed with the organization and communication from our project coordinator, who kept us on task and directed us to different wholesalers and suppliers so we could order all the parts and supplies we needed on a timely basis to keep us on schedule. When changes to the original specs were made, we knew right away how that would affect project costs, which allowed us to adjust our budget accordingly...

...the B-Dirt finishing team was very responsive in accommodating last-minute details...offering to do any additional work to make sure we were happy and satisfied customers. We are absolutely thrilled with how our house turned out, and love all the living spaces—especially the great room and kitchen. B-Dirt helped us combine classic and contemporary design elements throughout as well...

In summary, B-Dirt provided everything we were looking for in a builder: high quality workmanship, excellent communication, attention to detail, and responsiveness to the many changes we wanted to make.

We would not hesitate to recommend B-Dirt to anyone considering new construction in the Brainerd-Lakes area!"

We at B-Dirt are excited by excellent reviews like this, and look forward to many more! Call us today (218) 821-5243 and discover the B-Dirt difference!
