We are a New Home Construction Company that builds in the Detroit Lakes and surrounding communities.

We Keep “Your” Budget, Your Vision, Your wants and needs, at the fore-front of each and every decision.

Modern Living Concepts was created with these goals in mind:

To build high-quality, energy-efficient, affordable custom homes that will operate simply, and continue to be low maintenance for our clients for years to come.
We give our clients the ability to really see the design, even walk through their home on a 3D Virtual Tour, with the software we use.  Instantly making changes to create the perfect home for them.
We look forward to the opportunity to do the same for you!

We Design & Build Homes Completely Customized to Our Clients Dream & Vision.

We are here to guide you every step of the way, making sure you are always informed of the price and project schedule throughout this unique experience.

Beginning at Phase 1: Design, Pricing & Planning.

We set up a meeting and go over Client and Builder expectations, your wants & needs, Scheduling, Budget, Design, when you are happy with the design, then we move onto the next step of what you love, everything you want your home to have, then getting you an accurate cost so there are no surprises along the way.


Phase 2: During the Construction of Your Home.

Managing and scheduling each step so the project is continually moving forward. Keeping a close eye on Quality Control, making sure each design, the craftsmanship, is professional and perfect for our client. Finally, managing day to day operations, providing a smooth transition from one step to the next.


Phase 3: The Completion of Your New Home.

A thorough Cleaning & polish is included with each of our Custom Homes. The inspection & final walk-through is done with our team, making sure that you love your new home. After this phase, we include excellent warranty’s that will last. After the warranty period is over, we still keep an open line of communication with our clients.

Where Do We Build?

We Build in and around “Lakes Country,” where is that?

Richwood, Richville, Osage, Wolf Lake, Dunvilla, Pelican Rapids, Erhard
Vergas, Frazee, Dent, Perham, Ottertail, Rochert. (These are a few of the locations we build in)

We try to stay within 30 Miles of Detroit Lakes but have made exceptions to this rule in the past. If you are not sure about our service area or building in a desired location, just ask, we may be able to accommodate you. If not, we pride ourselves with being upfront and honest right from the start and may be able to recommend a builder that does service a particular area.


Whether we build within a City Municipality, Rural or Urban Development, Rural lot, On or off Lake Shore:

We keep up with the current regulations and/or restrictions for each location, always meet – but normally exceed the code standard. We understand the importance of feeling safe and comfortable for years to come. Knowing that we do our research, and build astutely so that you will have the best quality custom built home for years to come.
