As a leading Twin Cities custom builder, we have the ability to help you find the perfect spot for your new home. Whether it’s on a lot you already own, or on one of ours, we can maximize the beauty and function of your ideal location.
No problem! We understand if you’ve fallen in love with a location, but you need to completely tear down the existing home to build what your family needs. Gonyea has lots of experience navigating these types of projects.
Many neighborhoods in Minneapolis and St. Paul offer excellent teardown and rehab opportunities, but people frequently underestimate the real cost of renovation and construction, or pay too much for distressed property.
If you’re shopping for property, Gonyea can help! Make sure to talk to us before your make an offer. Based on your budget and wish list, we’ll help you find a property you can renovate or rebuild without going over budget.
Some lots are easier and less costly to build on than others. Many come with hidden costs such as:
Soil corrections, soil remediation, adding or removing soil
Utility connections that are either missing or not up to code
Utility pole relocation or burying utilities
Watershed zoning issues, setback and zoning limitations
