Serving Clients around the greater brainerd lakes area

Dotty Brothers is a start-to-finish company, which means we’re your one source for everything. We call our process “Design/Build.” It begins with sitting down to discuss your dreams, needs, timing and budget

HOME DESIGN/BUILD
CRAFTSMANSHIP

The craftsmen who design and build your home are loyal employees of Dotty Brothers, not an assortment of subcontractors. They are true, specialized artisans who live and work by a simple motto: “Build it as if it’s your own.” As a result, there is no other crew with better teamwork, ethic or attention-to-detail.

    JOANN
    BREEZY POINT, MN
  • "In 2008 I decided to build a cabin at Breezy Point. I met with several area builders, but came away with uneasy feelings. Then Dotty Brothers was recommended. I met with John and knew I had the right person, someone I could trust."
    J. BAKER
    BROOKLYN PARK, MN
  • "A major consideration in choosing Dotty Brothers was their reputation for building quality homes on time and on budget. From the design phase through construction, our experience was rewarding and enjoyable. The quality of Dotty Brothers’ craftsmanship, their professionalism, integrity and exceptional service was truly commendable. They lived up to their reputation!"
    THE SURAS

  • "Dotty Brothers completed construction of my home in July of 2009. I absolutely love the house and am proud of the appearance. Dotty Brother’s approach results in a finished home that shouts quality. The employees were easy to work with and our job superintendent worked hard to address our concerns. Since I moved in, Dotty Brothers has been excellent on taking care of the follow up issues that occur with all new homes. I would recommend Dotty to anyone."
    B. BERTRAM

  • "Building was a new experience for us and we were apprehensive about the process. Dotty Brothers made it all easy. John and his staff helped bring our plans and thoughts together with service before and after the sale that went above and beyond. Top notch people, using the best materials, and attention to detail makes our 2001 home look like it was just finished."
