It’s easy to assume that construction work stops during a Minnesota winter, right? That isn’t necessarily the case with many builders in the land of 10,000 (frozen) lakes.

Does Work Stop Completely in the Winter?

It makes sense that construction work halts during the winter. After all, the ground is frozen, the air is colder than that and construction workers can get unemployment in the winter. What if we told you that isn’t the case? There’s actually a lot of construction work that continues all winter long here at EL Builders. Let’s look at some of the projects that keep us busy when winter sets in.

Remodel in the Winter

Winter is the perfect time to take on that remodel you’ve been thinking about. Whether it’s time to update the kitchen or turn the bath into a spa, you don’t need warm weather to do a remodel. Winter is typically the slow season for most construction companies, so you might just be able to get your project going sooner rather than later.

Design in the Winter

At EL Builders, we work with you right from the planning stage straight through to the last piece of trim is put in place. So, during the winter months, why not stop in for a hot cup of coffee and start designing your new home or cabin? We’ll be here – and we would love for you to be here, too.

Inside Work in the Winter

Most of the work of building a custom home or cabin is done indoors, so winter doesn’t have to slow down your dreams. And for that outside work? We’ve got heaters and tarps and a shed full of tools that can help us get the job done no matter what the weather is outside. So, give us a call and find out what we can do for you this winter.
