Fact: you can build a beautiful, modern house using only products made in Minnesota. It’s true. And we can prove it. From aspen saunas in Cokato and air-jet bathtubs in Minneapolis to white cedar shingles in Duluth and reclaimed wood flooring in Hugo, the Land of 10,000 Lakes makes it all. ¶ Why build local? It’s good for our collective bottom line—and we’re talking more than eco-friendliness. Buying from locally owned stores returns at least 68 cents of every dollar back to the Minnesota economy—even more if products are manufactured here. ¶ To see what Minnesota has to offer, check out this ever-expanding, searchable database of more than 300 Minnesota companies. Happy building!
