Local home builder, Urban Prairie Homes, provides a building experience rich in creativity and design. Based in Fargo, N.D., owner, Joe Richards, spent twenty-one years as the owner-operator of a large drywall company before branching out to home building.
“I wanted to provide something different at an affordable price point,” shared Richards, who's project designs range from modern, contemporary farmhouse to conservative.
In the beginning...
Richards carefully assembled a team of experienced subcontractors with the same level of care for the home building process as himself.
“On our houses, I’ve been lucky to work with a great group of subcontractors that I’ve been friends with and worked with all these years. Most of them are on the jobsite throughout the build as owner-operators and care about the homes as if they were their own”, shared Richards, whom, with his old school work ethic, can be found onsite of each build as well.

Adjusting to life as a single mom, homeowner Heidi Henegar decided to rebuild her life and home with a builder she knew she could trust. Working with Katie Kern and Amanda Voss of the Jordahl Custom Homes team, Henegar and her two young sons made a smooth transition into a 1,913 square-foot split-level with a contemporary twist. For Henegar, this would mark her second build with the Jordahl team and a second chance at offering her family a fresh start. To see inside her modern approach to the traditional split-level living, we headed to South Moorhead's Stonemill Estates.
