About Us

Since 1986, family-owned Wes Hanson Builders of Crosslake, Minnesota has been dedicated to bringing the finest quality in design and construction to the Brainerd Lakes area.  Wes Hanson moved his company up to the Brainerd Lakes area from Bloomington with his son Todd Hanson and nephews Tom Hanson and Brad Mytling.  Together with Wes's wife Marilyn running the office, they built the company into the highly recommended general contracting company it is today.  In 2007, Wes sold the company to Todd and Tom.  Sadly, Brad passed away from cancer before Wes retired and sold the company to the boys.  Today, Tom and Todd continue the legacy that Wes began with their partner Brad in spirit.


When my husband and I chose a builder, we were looking for a firm that offered a sound structure with environmental considerations; a unique look that was designed to reflect our lifestyle; and a company with integrity that we could trust to deliver services in a timely and businesslike manner.  After five years of enjoying our home, we find that in addition to exceeding our original expectations, we still have a strong friendship with the company, who will answer our questions and follow-up with any concerns.  Wes Hanson Builders is an exceptional company! ~ Jean and Dave Jones

We chose Wes Hanson Builders to build our retirement home because of their quality reputation, creativity and expertise in working with large log homes.  The attention to detail and “can do” attitude of their employees has made this project an extremely easy and enjoyable process.  The customer service, friendliness and helpfulness of everyone in their organization from office personnel to construction crew, foremen, job superintendent and management all contribute to making this a “one of a kind” builder.  We would highly recommend them.   ~ Dan and Judy McAthie
