About Hanson Builders, Minnesota's largest local home builder

Hanson Builders Homes are Designed for Life.

This is more than just a tagline. It’s a threefold principle that describes what we do, how we do it, and why we do it.

A Hanson Builders house is built to last.

Our homes are extremely energy-efficient, promote healthy lifestyles, and are built to incredible specifications. The building process involves an interconnected system of people who care about the product and the people who live in it, for life.

Functional design is our hallmark.

Hanson Builders Homes are designed to be livable—to make sense for the family that will call it home. Your home is not just a page from a book, it is the home you want it to be.

We design for your life, and the life we all value together.

The first Hanson-built home was completed in 1885 by Dean Hanson’s great-grandfather. Hanson Builders is a multi-generational company and a part of the greater community.  We’ve been around a long time, and although most builders come and go, we have built a foundation for longevity.  We take seriously the responsibility of giving our employees a great work life, and delivering our customers an outstanding product and experience.
