Patriot Builders II History

Brant started in the residential construction business in the early 1990s, working as a contractor and subcontractor over the years. He’s been able to see everything up close, learning the ins-and-outs of custom home building and remodeling from every angle.

In 2000, Brant started his first framing company, framing out homes for other residential builders across East Central Minnesota and the Twin Cities. He enjoyed the new challenge and owning his own company.

In 1996, Tim started his first framing company, building home frames for other residential builders and gaining a wider appreciation for the industry. Through his framing companies, he was able to work on both smaller, standard homes as well as large custom homes across the Twin Cities.

    Patriot Builders II and their entire crew were extremely professional in helping us understand and solve our home remodel. Tim went above and beyond to make sure that we, as new homeowners, knew exactly what the issue was and what our options were for the most affordable and reliable solutions. They walked us through the entire process and finished the work in a timely and professional manner. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, hometown-feeling experience and professional crew. 10/10 would recommend.

    Working with Patriot Builders was a great experience. Their professionalism, quality of work and dedication to completing the project in a timely manner was worth every penny! Throughout the project, Chad quickly responded to our calls and kept us informed regarding scheduling, weather delays, and deliveries. We’ve received several compliments from neighbors including other contractors regarding the craftsmanship and look of our home. We are looking forward to continuing our home remodel this spring and can’t wait to see the results.

    From the first time we walked into the Patriot Builders II model home, it was obvious this home was different. The attention to detail and thorough decision making was abundantly clear from solid construction to the flow and functionality of the home to the decorative embellishment choices that added uniqueness throughout the rooms.

    While we did not participate in the selection or design process of building, the choices made by the builders were fresh, modern and clean, yet very cohesive and comfortable. The layout of the rambler was perfect for our family of 5 and there truly is not a thing that we would change about our house. It was important to us to purchase a home that would be an investment in our family and our future, and this house will meet our needs now, as our kids grow, and beyond.

    Brant and Tim are extremely responsive to work with and were patient with us throughout the entire process of building and buying the house. They thought of all the things we didn’t even know we should think of when building a custom home! We could not be more pleased with Patriot Builders II and look forward to many years of happy memories in this beautiful home.
