While our own family makes up the core of our business, we know that during the building process our customers become our extended family. At B-Dirt Construction LLC (Brainerd, MN), family goes beyond brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. Giving advice, asking questions, and caring about the emotional aspects of a build are as important to us as they are to you. As the builder of your new home at the Legacy Village, we’re here to listen and give you our best. We believe the planning and building of your new home should be enjoyable and stress free and we will do our best to insure that is the case.


We have over 25 skilled employees that build our custom homes, residential development properties and commercial projects. We have our own cement crew that has extensive experience in ICFs (insulated concrete forms), masonry blocks, footings and flat work. Our cement crew does excellent work at cultured stone accents and fireplaces. We use our own employees to frame your new home. We pride ourselves in the quality craftsmanship and solid construction that we can provide by having control of the framing of your home. We have highly skilled employees to finish the exterior and interior of your home. We take great pride in making sure every detail is done correctly. Our experienced and reliable contractors take care of the mechanical, electrical, drywall and plumbing. We have the best subcontractors in the Brainerd Lakes area.


Good communication between the customer and the contractor makes a project go smooth. We have an excellent reputation for making the building process easy through communication. Our scheduling program allows us to e-mail or fax you a weekly updated schedule on the progress of your project. This schedule will allow you to know when decisions such as colors or lights need to be ordered. You will enjoy the extra time and peace of mind that this level of communication will give you.


When you work with B-Dirt Construction LLC, you’ll soon realize that you’re in a relationship—with all of us. We have over 25 skilled employees that build our custom homes. From roof to foundation, every detail is made with outstanding craftsmanship.

It’s all in the technique. How we build our homes is key to our success. Here are just a few ways B-Dirt Construction LLC stands apart from other builders.

Many builders in northern Minnesota use block or poured cement basements. These methods can leak, and are not energy-efficient. B-Dirt Construction LLC uses Insulating Concrete Forms (ICF). These are interlocking modular units that are dry-stacked and filled with concrete. We add pre-engineered rebar to the ICFs to reinforce their strength. The forms are left in place which greatly reduces heat loss.

Another B-Dirt Construction LLC difference is that we use blown-in blanket insulation in our walls, not R-19 fiberglass batting. This not only provides an R-24 value, but it fills in all the hard-to-reach areas in the wall cavity. We go to the trouble of insulating your home—really well. So why not heat it equally as well? B-Dirt Construction LLC installs dual-heat systems that allow you to not only switch between gas or electric, but you also receive lower kilowatt rates at most local utilities.

You know that your home will be well-built, well-insulated, and well-heated. Finally, put your mind at ease knowing that its exterior is also of the best quality. James Hardie cement board siding has won numerous awards for its durability. It is resistant to rain, wind, snow, sun and hail. Only the best for B-Dirt Construction LLC clients.


B-Dirt Construction LLC, got its name from Joe Ranweiler’s (one of the owners) son, Nicholas. Nick was at a job site at about 18 months old. He saw the big piles of dirt that are common at the beginning of a project after the basement is dug. He said dad look at the “B” dirt. He could not say the word big – it came out as “B” – dirt.

So, the company got its name from Nicholas.
