Who We Are

Braden Construction is a premier home builder and full-service remodeling company, serving clients in the Twin Cities area and western Wisconsin for over 38 years.

We combine our professional experience, craftsmanship, and passion to deliver high-quality, high-value new home and custom remodeling and renovation services to homeowners. Our confident and reliable hands-on approach for managing the details ensures that every facet of construction is done to your specifications and on schedule. And we do that work with a level of client-first focus that you just won’t find with larger construction firms or smaller boutique shops.
Led by owner and President Paul Patnaude, our team actively collaborates with architects, designers, craftsmen, and suppliers – along with our most important partner – you, to create and execute the plan that transforms a house into your forever home.
Our home office is located in historic and scenic downtown Stillwater, MN.

In Our Clients Words

“Braden Construction has worked with us on two remodel projects. Their workmanship is outstanding. Our first home remodel was even featured in Better Homes & Gardens Magazine! They have a complete professional team, from the designer to electrician. Both remodel projects were completed on time and on budget. We are already looking forward to remodel number three and would highly recommend Braden Constuction for any remodeling job.”
