We'd love to explore design ideas with you! 651.439.28.44


Reject average. Build something that’s yours and yours alone.

Cates Fine Homes brings experienced craftsmanship to big and small home construction projects—new builds, whole-house remodels, even small revitalizations. Outside, you’ll see the difference. Inside, you’ll experience it. Live the way you’ve always dreamed of living.

Your dream: Let’s make it real.

At Cates, we are more interested in you, and what you want, than the size of the budget or square footage. We will collaborate with you and your architect, helping you make choices that allow us to realize your vision while staying within your financial comfort zone.

What’s the first step? Maybe you only have a vague idea at this point. Or perhaps you have an architectural plan in hand. Either way, we make it easy for you to take the next step. And the next. And each one after that…
