What began primarily as a roofing and remodeling business has since grown into a premier custom home building and land development firm. Founded by Mike Hartman, CEO, in 1985 in his hometown of Alma, Wisconsin, Hartman Homes in now based in Hudson, with operations extending throughout the Twin Cities metro, western Wisconsin, and Big Sky, Montana.

As a custom home builder, Hartman Homes’ philosophy centers on quality craftsmanship, client collaboration, sustainability, and integrity. Its award-
winning team of employees and craftsmen creates homes that reflect clients’ visions with precision, eco-friendly practices, and ethical standards—ensuring each home is beautiful, functional, and enduring.

A prime example of the company’s work, this relaxed, yet refined lake cottage retreat is the epitome of luxury living. When first stepping inside, visitors are greeted with 10-foot ceilings and expansive windows that frame beautiful views of Big Carnelian Lake. Throughout the home, three types of cabinetry—rift-cut white oak, painted, and walnut—provide a rich blend of textures and tones. Meanwhile, white oak flooring, seen throughout the main living spaces, connects the entire main level. Furnishings from Restoration Hardware and Arhaus further elevate the home’s inviting ambience, blending comfort with sophisticated style.

The great room features a vaulted ceiling with rustic beams, creating a warm and welcoming first impression, while nearby, the kitchen maintains a clean look with durable quartz countertops and built-in, panel-ready Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. A stylish bar—featuring custom steel shelving and a mirrored backsplash—serves as a hub of the home, linking the kitchen, dining room, porch, and deck.

Downstairs, the lower level is designed for relaxation and fun, complete with a media room, game area, and second bar. With a sauna positioned near the lower-level lake access point, the thoughtful layout ensures easy transitions between indoor and outdoor activities.

Among the project’s many highlights, the vaulted three-season porch stands out as a favorite of the Hartman Homes team. With Sunspace windows on three sides, it offers unobstructed views of the lake while creating a lofty, airy feel. A wood-burning fireplace adds a sense of coziness, making it an ideal spot for year-round enjoyment.

With this project, Hartman Homes continues to build on its legacy and stellar reputation in the home-building industry. From the unique layout and curated selections to the overall quality of craftsmanship, this refined lake home illustrates the company’s dedication to excellence.
