Mary and I would like to express our complete appreciation to Rusty and his entire crew. We are very pleased with the new total home makeover and remodel project you did for us at our home in Buffalo. Your Company's employees some of the finest subcontractors that provided quality work and were pleasant and accommodating. They were never too busy to listen to any of our thoughts or ideas, no matter how crazy we may have sounded. 

Our remodeling project was very extensive and required some changes on the go; you were very patient with Mary and I as we tried to make our decisions. If something would slip by and wasn’t what Mary and I envisioned, Rusty would go through it with us and either make adjustments or corrections without hesitation. YOU did whatever you needed to do to make sure that we were satisfied and happy. 

The allowance for lighting, plumbing, flooring and cabinetry were generous enough to give us an excellent choice and quality. 

Mary & I are very pleased with the fine work you did for us and yes “WE WOULD DEFINITELY USE YOU AGAIN” 

Rusty, a very special thank you!! You are more that a business acquaintance, we consider you a true honest friend.

Thank you, we definitely have a beautiful complete new home.



Arlan and Mary

Dear Rusty,

Thank you so much for the exceptional addition to our home. We are enjoying our Wonderful Master Bedroom/Bathroom. The design and quality is more than we could have imagined. We hope to hear from you soon. You’ve become more than our builder, you are a friend and we will definitely recommend you to everyone.

Thank you. Simply stated, but from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you so much for creating our dream home for us. From the first moment you walked into our home, you were excited about our project. Your positive 'We can do anything' attitude was refreshing...You got the job done, under budget and a month and a half early. Let me repeat that, UNDER BUDGET AND A MONTH AND A HALF EARLY... The crews you brought in were wonderful. Every crew was friendly and respectful. They talked with us, worked hard and were very pleasant to be around...

It’s hard to explain, but the feeling we got from everyone was that they were on our side. It was like they were building their own home. They were a part of our team – not working against us. Every question that came up was run past us. Not one thing was decided for us – we were always kept in the loop....We sing the praises of your company to everyone. Please feel free to use us as a reference. We love talking about our experience. We’d be happy to show others the beautiful home you built for us. "

Thank you.

We interviewed many contractors, we choose Legacy for the professionalism, great communication we had from the first bidding process.

We added on 1400 sq feet to our home, with the gutting of the old main floor and adding the new space with a full basement. Legacy and all the subcontractors were friendly, cleaned up after themselves, on time and very trust worthy. Legacy finished the job on time and on budget. There were never any surprises in billing.

Matt and Rusty are so easy to work with! Matt was on site everyday and Rusty made sure he was in communication at all times if needed.

We would recommend Legacy for any small or large job anyone would have.
We will also be contacting Legacy for more jobs in the future.

We love our new kitchen. When Legacy Design-Build came to our house to give us a quote, I was very impressed with how responsive Rusty was to our ideas. We were unsure of whether we could enlarge the kitchen, but Rusty’s idea about moving one wall 18 inches made a huge difference in the size of the kitchen without really making much difference in the size of our living room. And although we thought it would be impossible to move an overhead vent hood, the team was able to do it. Rusty was knowledgeable in knowing what could and could not be accomplished. We thought the pricing was in the ballpark that we expected and went with their proposal right away. The construction started and completed on time. It took 5 weeks to complete our remodel, but given all of the tasks that needed to be done, we were happy with the timing. I have shown my kitchen to friends and relatives and have hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and everyone is completely impressed with the beautiful cabinetwork, tiling, new countertops and the appliances that were installed at the end of the job. I would definitely do it again!

Karen & Bob

Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did on my kitchen/family room remodeling project. I’ve had a couple of family gatherings and am so happy with how everyone now seems connected and in the same space instead of two separate rooms. What a difference!

Not a day goes by when I don’t ask myself, “Why did I wait so long to take out that wall separating the kitchen and family room?” I literally spent years envisioning it, only to have the reality exceed any expectation that I had. I guess it was a matter of timing. As you know, I already had a couple of estimates and was very close to making a final decision when I got your name from a co-worker. I’m so glad that I decided to get one more estimate. With an older home like mine, it was very important to me that I have confidence in and trust the person in charge of the project – I had both with you.

Your team of contractors was professional, timely, respectful of my home and proficient in their work. Matt Bakke did an excellent job in managing the day to day activities and was very responsive to any questions that I had or any issues that came up. They all contributed to a positive outcome.

Please don’t hesitate to have potential customers contact me with any questions about my specific project. I’d be happy to share my positive experience in working with you and Legacy Design-Build.

Thank you for our beautiful new kitchen, fence and deck!  We truly appreciate the quality and craftsmanship that went into every detail. From concept to completion, you took our ideas and turned them into reality. The contractor's you partner with are fantastic - professional, efficient, clean and friendly. Your estimate of our projects were accurate ~ It was great staying within our initial budget! The work schedule you provided was followed exactly and our projects were completed on time. We are really pleased with the work of Legacy Design-Build! And will be calling again soon to talk about our master bathroom remodel!

Randy & Mary

We met Legacy Design-Build at a home show and were very impressed by their photos and their knowledge of design and construction in our initial discussion. We had them out to our home to discuss our project which was a master bedroom/bathroom renovation which included removing walls to expand the space in our home for our needs. We talked to (3) additional companies during our selection process and settled Legacy Design-Build due to their knowledge and design. You addressed all of our concerns and your design was the best value for our project, which was completed exactly on Budget! We are thrilled with the work. We would highly recommend Legacy Design-Build to anyone. All of your employees and sub-contractors were very easy to work with and really knew their jobs. They always had input throughout the project which gave our project a very special feel. Our friends and family say that our Master Bedroom Suite "is like the Ritz." When our children come home for a visit the want to use our bathroom instead of the "guest" bath down the hall.

Thank you for everything you've done for us!


David & Sue

Thank you so much for all of your quality work on our home this fall.  Eric and I are over the moon with our new beautiful bathroom, and we appreciate it being completed on time and on budget!  We were impressed with the professionalism of all the subcontractors on our bathroom project and appreciated being kept in the loop throughout the remodel process.  

Our new windows are already making a huge dent in our heating bill and have helped even out the temperature in our home, even in the drafty room upstairs.  Please extend my thanks to Dave and the rest of the crew, who were helpful, professional, and left our home and property cleaner than they found it! 

We’ve gotten plenty of compliments on both projects and have enthusiastically passed on your name to our friends.  Thanks for helping us make our house our home.

Amanda & Eric

Working with Legacy was an absolute pleasure.  I’ve had my experiences with builders and contractors in the past and I have to say that working with Legacy, all expectations were not only met but exceeded.

Great attention was paid on the front end of my project to planning with my needs in mind.  I found the design process very innovative.  I was presented the general concept and was offered an array of options, all of which enhanced the end product.

During the project, I was kept well informed and updated on the status of progress and was routinely consulted on style details.

But my greatest satisfaction comes from working with a contractor who delivers on time and on budget without excuses!

I would recommend Legacy without hesitation!


Thank you so much for our gorgeous porch! I wanted you to know, that my husband and I are very pleased with the new porch and deck addition. We are pleased with everything and we enjoy getting compliments on the finished product. With warmer weather coming up we are looking forward to hanging out on the porch.  It has exceeded our expectations and we could not be more happy!  We would be happy to recommend Legacy to any future customers you have. 


We enthusiastically recommend Legacy to anyone who is thinking of remodeling. They gave us a very competitive bid and stayed on budget throughout the project. Legacy Design-Build was extremely conscientious and showed a commitment to every detail. They demonstrated excellent workmanship and dealt with us in a friendly manner. We are completely satisfied with Legacy Design-Build. 

Bill & Dawn

"We hired Legacy Design-Build to remodel three bathrooms in our home in 2011. What distinguishes Legacy Remodeling from other contractors is their design capabilities, It's like getting an interior designer and a contractor in one professional package. Their designs matched our personality perfectly and their subcontractors were on-time, professional and clean. The bathrooms look amazing and we will call Legacy Design-Build for future projects! Excellent job!"

Jeff & Ruth Ann

In the fall of 2011 we embarked on a major remodeling of our home with Legacy Design-Build, since we liked their ideas for making it more attractive and functional for my wife and me. That involved a significant addition and a substantial modification and updating of existing areas of the house. We now have a home that no longer feels like it was designed for 1940s living! We couldn’t be more pleased with the results of a project that was within our budget and well done!

Jeff & Carolyn

We came to Rusty with a question, "do you build houses from the ground up?" His answer was "yes, we do." We explained that we wanted to salvage the old woodwork from the family farm house and design the new house around it. Rusty's answer was "we can do that." About a year later with blueprints in hand, we started knocking down the old house to make room for the new one. Over the next four months we met and watched the incredible crews put our dream together.

The employees Legacy Design-Build are nothing but impeccable. They truly want to please the customer and they treated our home like their own with TLC. They would meet with us throughout the building process and be sure it was something we wanted and were happy with before they proceeded to build. Rusty and his team truly demonstrated superb craftsmanship in combining the old with the new throughout our entire house.

When we first met with Rusty our design was a bit more than what we needed, but with his knowledge of designing homes we were able to create our perfect home. We loved the positive "nothing's impossible" energy that was shown to us from the very first design meeting. That energy flowed over to us on those few days when we questioned ourselves if we were really doing the right thing.

Thank you to Rusty and Legacy Design-Build for the custom home they built for us. If we had to do it again we would definitely use them to do the job. We are so happy and satisfied with the work they completed for us.

Legacy Design-Build truly builds quality homes with keeping the customer in mind every step of the way. Our new house never felt "new" to us; it just felt like home!

Dan & Robyn

From the first time we met Dan at the Home Show at the Minneapolis Convention Center to the final inspection with Rusty, everything went smoothly. We have a very small kitchen/dining area and with Dan's design ideas we were able to utilize the space very efficiently. Now we actually more storage space and are able to better utilize the area. We made it clear from the beginning that it was important to us to stick to the budgeted amount in our contract. Legacy fulfilled that promise with no surprises. We ran into a situation when our flooring ended up on back order. They brought out several new floor samples for us to choose from to have the project completed as scheduled but we chose to wait on the flooring. During that time they completed the remainder of the project as scheduled so we had a functioning kitchen until our floor was delivered.  Due to the suggestions from Legacy Design-Build we were able to achieve our dream kitchen.
