From brrr to ahhh!:

There are a number of new heating methods available to you whether you need one for your current home or are planning on building, and the one you choose needs to fit your finances and your freedom.

A little update may go a long way:

Find out how to look past what’s in your existing home and make it work for you efficiently and aesthetically.


Designing and creating custom media centers:

Creating an entertainment space where everyone can relax and unwind that also meets everyone’s needs can sound daunting but with the right guidance, homeowners can create a beautiful and functional room that everyone enjoys.

When staying in feels like going out:

New home designs and remodels often include wide open spaces and large countertops with seating that makes it easy to congregate together and enjoy one another’s company.

Solar powered homes gaining in popularity:

Solar powered homes are becoming more popular in Minnesota as consumers learn more about its energy efficiency benefits.

Multi-generational living could be the future of housing:

One home is not necessarily limited to one family anymore. Rather than visiting each other on weekends and holidays, the desire to be near each other, even if it means living under the same roof, is stronger than ever.



Since 1986, family-owned Wes Hanson Builders of Crosslake, Minnesota, has been dedicated to bringing the finest quality in design and construction to the heart of Minnesota’s lake country. Wes Hanson moved his company up to the lakes area from Bloomington with his son Todd Hanson and nephews Tom Hanson and Brad Mytling. Together with Wes’ wife Marilyn running the office, they built the company into the highly recommended general contracting company it is today. The legacy continues and Wes Hanson Builders continues to be the family company it started as.
