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.
