Why Teardown for New Home?
The Location You Want!
Empty lots or homesites are difficult to find in the most desireable locations in the Twin Cities. Edina is booming with rebuilds. The proximity to Minneapolis, MSP airport and shopping such as Mall of America make it a great location for professional families. Minnetonka is another location that is prime for redevelopment due to Lake Minnetonaka. Lakes are part of the Minnesota lifestyle. Twin Cities area lake homes are mostly older since the lakeside location was highly desireable. Many Minnesota residents are looking to replace the “Up North” cabin with year around lake living in the Minneapolis metro area. White Bear Lake & Forest Lake are also great potential teardown and rebuild new options.
The Home You Want!
A teardown allows new construction with the features you want such as open-concept floor plan; media room, loft, home office, mudrooms/utility rooms, upper level laundry so no more hauling laundry up and down stairs. Most older homes have low ceilings, especially in the basements or lower levels. High ceilings enhace feeling spaciousness have become the standard in custom luxury homes. Building new also allows you to maximize energy efficiency. Since many of these lots are small, TJB Homes has optimized 2-story home plans to fit narrow lots.
The Neighborhood You Want!
Youve researched the schools, amenities and communities. You found the perfect area for your lifestye. What do you do if there are no empty lots to build on? You do not want to remodel or do major renovation. TJB Homes can help you find the right property to teardown for a new home.
Residential redevelopment has revitalized neighborhoods and boosted city’s tax bases. Residents welcome the increase in home values.

TJB Homes can handle it all for you, from site aquistion, home demolition, plans & permits through construction.
