Nace Hagemann

“Nace built the garage, bunkhouse, and deck at our cabin on Clearwater Lake. He is very methodical and pays attention to detail. Best of all, he’s extremely reliable and a very good communicator.”

Larry Johnson, Duluth

“He’s terrific. Nace and the guys on his crew do first-rate work. I wish I had him here in New York.”

Bill Serrin, West Bearskin cabin owner

Dear Nace,

Thanks again for your great work on my lake home this spring.

When I bought the place last summer I knew I had a big remodeling project ahead and had some concern about being able to find a local builder who I could work with well. After all, a carpenter turned architect (who’s sometimes a bit of a control freak) is a tough client by any standards.

You and your crew did an outstanding job and exceeded my expectations on all counts. The quality of the workmanship is extremely good and your crew anticipated my concerns (and even solutions) for tricky details. Your subcontractors got there on time and did great work—they didn’t even mind communicating directly with me, which I greatly appreciated. Finally, your personal project management and communication was excellent, and I enjoyed the chance to work with you and get to know you in the process.

You’re obviously dedicated to growing a high quality and successful business, and it shows in all you do. I look forward to working together again next spring on “Phase 2.”

Again, thanks for the great work.
Paul Holmes, St. Paul


Thank you so much for doing all the work that you've done for us. We have really appreciated being able to trust our contractor. You're a hard worker and a good communicator-- two attributes that don't seem to readily go together in the contracting world. So I'll say it again: We have been honored to have you and your crew build our house.

Thanks, Tammy & Brandee, Grand Marais, MN
