Northern Trends Building & Design moved to 606 Garfield Ave., Suite 100, Duluth, MN 55802 in May of 2004. This central location enables us to serve our customers more efficiently. Better service is one of the reasons why Northern Trends was started. While working independently, our four owners realized that by combining their individual talents, together they could build top quality homes. Attention to detail during construction and timely, helpful response to our customers are two goals the owners knew would earn them an excellent reputation and future jobs. Word of mouth advertising is the number one way we get jobs.

In September of 2004, we expanded our design department. The head of this department has a degree in architectural drafting and 10 years of experience. Northern Trends logical, cost-conscience approach to building projects results in common sense plans, which make our customers very happy. Our basic philosophy is to have new homes designed for your specific building site and to add features that fit your lifestyle. Our addition and remodel plans flow from the original structure. They are matched to the existing style so it is hard to tell where the original structure ends and the addition begins. Some of our customers prefer to have the original structure's design elements updated during the addition in order to match a certain style they want to create for their home.

Northern Trends Building & Design is a fully licensed, insured, and bonded company. Our license number is BC-20268973 and is registered with the State of Minnesota Department of Commerce. You can reach them at 1-800-657-3978. We are insured and bonded through Otis-Magie Insurance Agency Inc. in Duluth, Minnesota. This information can be made available to you upon request.
