Design a House Fit for Your Family with The Design Connection—Residential Design in Rochester, MN, and Across Southeastern Minnesota

Are you tired of looking through real estate in your area and not quite finding “the one” that fits, a house you can really see yourself living in? Perhaps a custom home has seemed out of reach, available only to people with huge budgets—but you might be surprised at what’s possible! The Design Connection has made the process of designing a house accessible, practical, and rewarding for families across the Twin Cities, Rochester, and southeastern Minnesota. When we design a house, we do it with you and your family in mind.

Custom and Practical Home Designs

The Design Connection offers fully customized house designs created to fit your budget, your family, and your future. All of our designs are custom, and we can accommodate numerous design styles. Together with you during our design phase, we’ll visualize not only what you want now, but what you might want 5, 10, or 20 years down the road. We design a house with the long game in mind to ensure you enjoy your home for years to come.

Ensuring your home is customized for your needs is a trademark of our designs. If having an energy efficient home is important to you or if you need increased accessibility, we can incorporate that into your design. Our specialty is taking the unique needs, wants, and goals of a beautiful custom home and making it practical to build. The quality of our work is one reason The Design Connection maintains solid relationships with local builders. We love to problem-solve and design something great with you!
