About Us

Built On Relationships

Since 1978, McDonald Construction has been one of Minnesota’s most respected and trusted names in the home building industry. We employ talented and experienced people  to ensure you are thrilled with the entire experience of building your home. Our team provides the latest designs and construction measures that exceed industry standards.

Our founder, Bob McDonald, spent a lifetime working and developing solid relationships within the construction industry. So, when Bob retired in late 2021, he did so knowing that his company would continue to serve those long-standing relationships and continue to develop new ones. 

In September 2021, Dave Remick acquired McDonald Construction. He shares the same values and principles upon which McDonald was founded. We are committed to fulfilling our founder’s promises to our family of building partners, employees, and homeowners. It’s an exciting new chapter for McDonald, and we are looking forward to the future we are building together.

Redefining Custom

Like your home, your building experience should express your goals, style, and way of life. That’s why McDonald redefines “custom.” Our definition? Creating your living space with your ideas, desires, and budget in mind. We’ve been designing and building homes to our customers’ unique specifications for over 40 years. McDonald is all about choices—Your choices.

The McDonald Difference

We are  committed to making every custom home build or  renovation project exceptional. From our first contact with customers to the completion of their home or project, we will communicate with them throughout the process and provide them with the high-quality craftsmanship McDonald is known for. Our combination of integrity, communication, and quality has kept homeowners coming back to us, time and time again, for their design, building, and renovation needs.  We are proud to have built multiple homes for so many clients.

The Difference Is in The Details

Many builders have taken the distinctiveness out of custom homes in recent years. Unique detailing that was once standard is now considered an extra. Some builders have turned custom into a cookie-cutter style. 

At McDonald, we believe details are what distinguish a custom home. Our in-house design team and home consultants combine their experience and creativity with the goals you have for your home. At McDonald, you can discover possibilities of which you never even dreamed!

  • Unique architectural designs
  • The tiniest detailing on a door handle
  • An innovative way to maximize natural light
