Your dream home can become a reality. Crist Construction has 25+ years of building quality, custom, dream homes.


We are Crist Construction. We do things a little differently. If you’d like to sit down and discuss a custom home, we’ll invite you into our Crist home. To sit at our dining room table, have a cup of coffee, and talk. No fancy offices. No high-pressure sales pitch. We build a small, manageable number of homes per year. We won’t sacrifice our quality reputation, in exchange for quantity. However, we do like to be adventurous. We built the first home in Charleswood addition of West Fargo, in Mapleton’s golf course addition, and in the Osgood addition of Fargo. You’ll be comfortable and confident, knowing that we’ve been doing this for over 25 years, and we’ll guide you through the building process. If our homes meet your needs, we trust you’ll join our list of smart, satisfied homeowners.
