Since 1969, Kootenia Homes has been building dream homes for clients in the east metro area. Specializing in true custom construction—including designing, building, and full-service remodeling—the firm has developed a full portfolio of luxury homes across the Twin Cities. Owner David Frosch began with Kootenia as a drafter in the 1980s, giving him the skills and vision necessary to execute the demands of full custom design and build. By the 1990s, he took over the company and later welcomed a second generation of the Frosch family to the team. With his son Steven Frosch serving as Vice President of Construction Management, this family works together on both ends of the firm to create new builds for homeowners.

The company’s expert staff boasts decades of construction and design experience, making up a complete and well-rounded team of professionals. At Kootenia, they pride themselves on working directly with each client to design dream homes. “We don’t say no!” David says. “New things make our jobs more interesting.” With each build, the team develops the plans from start to finish and personalizes each design to fit individual client’s needs, tastes, and lifestyles. This integration of design services ensures a seamless building process consistent with the highest standards.

One of Kootenia’s recent projects, this 4,200-square-foot new build dubbed “Minnesota Modern,” is a lakeside paradise. The most striking feature of the home, a custom 30-foot wall of Andersen windows, perfectly satisfies the homeowner’s non-negotiable ask—to capture the views of Bailey Lake. Through the use of large windows throughout the open design, this two-bed, three-bath home seamlessly melds with the outdoors and provides unique views from every room. Inside, the interior design showcases a modern look with a cozy feel. Natural walnut cabinetry, custom metal railings, vaulted ceilings, and a fully tiled bathroom all lend to the clean, yet natural aesthetic. With unique fixture selections, furniture choices, and decoration, the cohesive interior design reflects the homeowner’s vision.

Outside, the home boasts a modern exterior that makes use of a variety of materials and colors—all under a mixture of flat and sloped metal roofs. By using James Hardie Reveal Panels, maintenance-free wood look siding, and stacked stone, the curb appeal of this home encapsulates contemporary design while seamlessly blending with its surroundings. Additionally, the partnership with Heins Nursery transformed the outdoor spaces with a vibrant medley of flowers, trees, and bushes—all expertly landscaped with stone and rock. Whether it’s the outdoor patio with a water feature and hot tub or the three-season porch with self-storing screens and an indoor grill area, each aspect of the home exemplifies its connection to nature.

From overall design to the luxurious finishing touches, the resulting home is a testament to Kootenia’s strength in ideation, collaboration, and creation.
