Casselton's East View Development
Steve & Stacy Link
The city of Casselton, North Dakota, located just twenty miles west of Fargo, continues to grow and blossom immensely. Home to numerous churches, a recently renovated high school, a well acclaimed school system, an active regional airport and flourishing local businesses - it’s no wonder the city has such a hot housing market.
Having lived in Casselton for 18 years and currently raising their three sons there, Steve and Stacy Link take great pride in their bustling community. The pair are extremely active in Casselton, Steve having served on city council and the local fire department in addition to their many other involvements. As the Links became increasingly aware of their growing community’s housing need, Steve proposed a plan to his wife for them to develop the land they owned for residential use. Stacy found herself a bit reluctant to the idea initially, with both of them having full time jobs and a young family to raise, but with some adjustments the pair found a way to bring the plan to life.

Positioned along the Red River within a Fargo, North Dakota, neighborhood, where every home tells a unique story, is The Dark Horse. Home to Chris and Kyja Nelson, as well as their nine year old daughter, Unna, this home, with its contemporary take on minimal design, was originally built in the 1930s just minutes away from downtown Fargo and Moorhead, Minnesota.
Kyja Nelson spent her early years in the Fargo area, then returned in 2006 after accepting a position teaching film at Minnesota State University Moorhead. She and her husband, Chris, who works as a geologist at Northern Technologies, LLC, purchased the home that same year, drawn specifically to the outdoor opportunities its location provided.
