New Home Construction | Otsego, MN

At Franklin Builders we are your New Home Construction Otsego, MN Custom Home Builders. Your design. Your choices. Your home. 

Unique and timeless for everyday living our custom Otsego, MN rambler is an example of modern family living with a personal, custom touch.

This Twin Cities Metro Area home was built and designed with family and trends in mind.

Traditional and rustic wood finishes and a unique blend of metals and surface features flow beautifully through each room in this airy, Wright County rambler. 

Entering the home, views of the backyard lot are visible from tall windows throughout the main level.  

Expansive views end with patio doors atop the stairwell leading to the basement, additional walkout access and the bonus bedroom above the garage. 

 The cozy fireplace and incredible wall unit immediately invite you into the living area from the main entrance. 

The painted and stained fireplace cabinetry is styled to perfection.

This is the focal point that ties the entire home design together, right in the heart of the home.

 

This cabinetry unit was built into the wall and was installed at staggered depths for design and dimension covering one large wall. 

The Fireplace and TV unit take center stage accompanied by bookcase style cabinets painted in white.

 

Our classic Franklin touch using quatersawn oak compliments the warm neutral stone fireplace and white cabinets. 

The gorgeous flooring installed through the main living area is white oak in a custom matte stained finish.

Our carpenters are not limited to cabinets! We built and designed this custom dining room table stained to match the same finish as the flooring.

The rustic stain blend used for the flooring and table is also an accent tone found throughout the granite counter tops and barn door of the walk-in kitchen pantry. 

The farmhouse sink is accented by a ledge cut into the granite countertop adding custom flare in an unexpected way. 

Upper and base cabinets in the kitchen were constructed from quatersawn oak with inset, raised panel doors. 

The glass pendants offer subtle style and trend without overpowering the bold detail of the custom built cabinetry. 

Oil rubbed bronze cabinet pulls bring out the dark tones found naturally within the grooves of the designer doors. 

A custom refrigerator was installed with matching door and drawer panels that were meant to cover the surface and blend with the wall of cabinetry. 

The white center island allows in-kitchen seating while also providing multi-functional use for large cookware storage and the rangetop cooking area.

The center islands inset raised panel doors are the same as the oak cabinetry. However, the island was painted in white and black drawer pulls finish of the contrasting look. 

Rustic barn doors are high on the top of many homeowners lists! We love the design for the walk-in pantry! 

Off of the kitchen the same oak, white and rustic wood finish carries into the basement, garage and backyard exit stairwell. 

The expansive entrance area is complimented by the mixed metal lighting- adding style and charm to the unique stairwell design.

 

Above the garage, a bonus bedroom space is peaceful on its own level of the home.

In addition to main level laundry, one master bedroom/bathroom, 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom are found at the opposite end of the home.

The master suites base and window trim are finished in white and is complete with soffit lighting and 3 accent windows. 

A full master bathroom finished in white cabinetry. The marble tile and stone features are reminiscent of the backsplash and surface tops in the kitchen 

Cool chrome fixtures play off of the intricate hexagon and mini subway tiling in the stand up shower. 

The subway tile was carried over to the built-in tubs backsplash. We designed a large towel storage cabinet for easy access while relaxing. 

These surface tops are sensational with hues ranging from white to golden to grey and blue. All tones look marvelous marbling within the 2 sink vanity. 

Decorative glass knobs round out the design accents with a traditional look. 

Between the Master bedroom and 2 additional rooms, a masculine bathroom is durable for all ages. 

The same oak cabinets and raised panel doors are consistent with the main cabinetry on display in the home. 

Decorative mosaic accents in the shower blend with the speckled vanity top, slate floor tile and trim along the bead board paneling. 

Brushed nickel knobs and pulls pop against the intricate oak doors of the vanity. 

The last little nook along the rambler pathway is a quaint entryway mudroom off of the garage entrance. 

Oak cabinets quatersawn and stained to match will withstand anything a busy family entry area will bring through the various Minnesota seasons!

Plenty of overhead space for storage and a pocket door leading to a 1/4 bathroom add to the convenience of the space. 

A bulletin board command station and walk-in closet is just what any family needs to stay organized and ready for anything! 

Our entryway bench with built-in drawers maximize this area for multi-use and function. 

Convenience couldn’t be more beautiful and simple.

Bronze fixtures, a lovely purple hue and decorative vanity mirror really add a lot of character in a small powder room!

Hardie siding and matching soffit and fascia are a great neutral look pairing well with the stone accents and window trim of the exterior. 

Curb appeal and instant warmth greet any guest with custom pine tongue and groove, wrapped posts and front door accents. 

Thank you for viewing our craftsmanship and design featured in our latest custom home. 

Unique and timeless for everyday living, Franklin Builders can make your dream design a reality.
