Lake Home Construction. Enjoy the View.

Living on the lake is special. We make it extra special by building quality crafted lake homes.

Lake Life

Life is better on the lake! How fortunate are we all to live in the Brainerd Lakes area? Building on a lake is a vision and goal shared by most to enjoy the best of what our area has to offer. If you’ve never owned or built a home by the water, E.L. Builders can walk with you through every step of this exciting journey, from dreaming and planning to move-in day.

Lake life is a unique way of living, and it is often reflected in the type of home designs one sees along the many Minnesota lakefronts. Many will combine a rustic flair with a touch of up north lake living, while others prefer a more modern and stylish appearance. Whatever your dream is for lake home construction, E.L. Builders has the skills and experience to erect a lake house that will exceed your highest expectations.

Lake Home Construction

If you’re starting from scratch, tearing down an existing, or re-creating what is there, E.L. Builders is there to help navigate the best possible solution for you. We are experienced with the unique challenges of building a new home on a lakefront. Your design must consider two fronts – the street view and the lake view. There are also normally space and property constraints, some from lot size and some from topography.

Even locating just the right spot for your lakefront home can be challenging, and the lot size and topography will often determine your home’s layout and eventual construction budget. E.L. Builders will work with you for the best possible site development to take full advantage of your beautiful lake view while still maintaining complete home functionality. Our lake home construction professionals have the know-how and experience to make the best possible use of your lot.

We Build Lakefront Homes

At E.L. Builders, we know that variables like view, placement, topography, and drainage must be carefully reviewed before any final house plans can be crafted. Then, site preparation will be completed to prepare for the structure foundation.

We coordinate with site preparation experts and our team to manage all aspects of construction, even including any necessary teardowns and refuse disposal. As an experienced lakefront home builder in Minnesota, we have experience with these details and will ensure your new home is built to last. At E.L. Builders, we build quality lakefront homes that stand the test of time and the elements.

Our lakefront home worksites are always organized and kept clean, especially when space is at a premium on smaller lots. This ensures a safe and welcoming environment when you arrive to ask questions or inspect our progress. Your E.L. Builders team wants you to feel right at home as we create your new lakefront home!
