New Home Construction in Minnesota

Energy efficency with new construction: With heating and cooling costs continually rising, we can build you a very energy efficient home or cabin. From insulated concrete formed foundations to spray foam insulation in your walls and ceilings we offer plenty of energy saving options to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer while saving on heating and cooling costs. We have worked with off-peak and dual fuel heating systems as well as geo-thermal. Our experience with alternative heating sources makes it easier for us to help you select the system and options that are right for you.

Beyond remodeling, building sunrooms and porches and being log home builders, Keen Construction, Inc. also offers conventional new home construction in east central Minnesota and beyond. Our location, planning service and network of contractors makes it easy for us to offer our home planning and builder services where you are building to make your dream home or cabin a reality. We keep the design. your needs and budget in mind while planning and building to keep your project on track from start to finish.

Rustic hybrid homes and cabins: For those of you that want something between a log home and a "regular" home we have our popular hybrid line of homes. These log inspired hybrid homes and cabins can incorporate siding options such as cedar or cement board siding. Add in some exterior stone and/or log accents and you have a rustic looking home. Instead of round log accents we can use square timbers to achieve the timber frame appearance. What about the interior of the home? The options inside are endless. Tongue and groove knotty pine and drywall compliment each other very well. We can also bring round logs or square timbers for beams and posts to step up the rustic interior a bit more. Some even add interior half log. These hybrid homes are a perfect and affordable option for the ones that want the rustic look without going the log home or log cabin route. Below is a photo of a hybrid home incorporating maintenance free cement board siding with cedar shakes in the upper gables and exterior stone. Note the square log timbers at the front entrance. The interior of this home is a mix of drywall and knotty pine. To see a photo tour of a rustic hybrid home that we just finished just go to this photo album
