History. . .
After more than 30 years of creating and building mid and upper end custom homes in the western, northern, northeastern, and southern suburbs of the Twin Cities Lang Builders, Inc., takes pride in the fact that they take the time to listen to their customers' ideas and dreams so they can design and build a house that is as unique and individual as they are. And each time Lang builds a house, they get one more idea or make one more discovery about how to do something or offer something that is just a little bit better.
"I have built a rainbow of homes that are all truly custom and each one of them is just a little bit different," says Tim Lang, who first started out building at the age of 14, working with his grandfather in the construction business. By high school he was doing carpentry work and later attended trade school in St. Cloud. Though he went to work for a commercial construction company, he was always focused on the idea of one day branching out on his own.
In 1980 he formed Tim Lang Builders, doing subcontracted residential framing. While framing houses, he took the time to ask questions and absorb knowledge and information about the market, about homes, about designs and about other subcontractors. When the time was right, he created his own general contracting company and incorporated the company into Lang Builders, Inc. In 1991, the company set a record, building 42 homes. Lang homes can be seen in such areas as West Lakeland, Ham Lake, Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, Lino Lakes, Lake Elmo, Blaine, Coon Rapids and Rogers. Lang Builders will build your home just about anywhere.
While Tim admits that he attends numerous seminars and reads a wealth of
magazines to learn new building techniques and get new ideas, he says that many
of the best ones still come from his customers. Oftentimes Lang will
incorporate those ideas into his latest model design. As a member of the
Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC), Tim is constantly being informed
of new building techniques.
Award Winning Builder. . .
It is this unique approach to expanding their product through customer input that has garnered several awards for Lang Builders, including several Trillium Awards and several Reggie Awards, Best Design Home, Best Interior Design, Best Kitchen Design, and Best Fireplace. "We really listen to what our customers have to say. I try to incorporate the ideas buyers have," says Lang. "We don't listen to them and then tell them that is not the way they want to do it. It is their home to enjoy and live in, and we are in a constant state of flux -- getting better ideas, new ideas, updating ideas and always changing for the better."
Commitment to Service. . .
Lang Builders, Inc., uses only reputable suppliers and subcontractors that ensure that their materials and workmanship meet our high standards during and after construction. We stand behind our promise of customer satisfaction with a comprehensive system of quality assurance.
Solid, Quality Construction. . .
Lang Builders, Inc. uses many different techniques and materials to make their houses exceptional. Lang Builders builds a vast variety of style and home sizes but, they all are built with the same attention to detail. Lang Builders, Inc. builds every home like it is their own.
Ideas. . .
Besides building homes, Tim Lang says that in the process he has also built many friendships with his customers. And by getting to know so many people it has only helped to broaden the ideas and input that he has for continuing to make his homes something special each and every time. "I like to do different things and use different ideas on each home I build. The fact is, people want something different, " he says. "They may go through other homes not built by Lang Builders, Inc., but when they get to a Lang home, they can be sure they will see something different."
