Working with Knight Construction/Design on our kitchen remodel was by far the best construction experience we have ever had.  From working with the owner, Gary Knight, on designs for the project, and estimates and contracts, to working with their design specialist, Kristen, on all the renovation designs, and finish details, to Jeff, the supervisor of the remodel, everything was so well organized and professionally handled.  Each sub-contractor within the Knight family was truly amazing and impressive!  They are all hand selected by Knight and are all highly skilled and specialized craftsmen.  They really put care and personalized attention into our project.  They delivered an outcome beyond our expectations.  EVERYTHING!!! ... from demolition, sheetrock, ceilings, electrical, floor refinishing, tiling, cabinets, finish carpentry, to painting... everyone delivered, and exactly to the schedule and budget that we were promised!  Again, we love our new kitchen!  We so appreciate everything Knight Construction has done for us.  We would highly recommend Knight Construction for any home building or remodeling project.  Thank you again to everyone at Knight!

Job was to remodel 1950's-era original bathroom - a small project in terms of sq. ft., but Knight Construction made it seem as important as a McMansion spa/salon.  At first contact Knight Construction was professional and polished.  Their staff designer listened to our ideas and offered suggestions when asked.  We quickly learned to rely on their expertise and glad that we did. 
Deadlines were met to the day and budgets to the penny. Project management was well coordinated and kept us abreast of work schedule as it progressed.  Throughout, sub-contractors were able, polite and considerate. 
As the project came to a close and several days after the mirror was placed exactly where we specified, we changed our mind about its location.  Without comment and with a smile, the project manager (Jeff) returned the next day and re-installed it 4 in. lower.  A small thing perhaps, but it was in our minds emblematic of their commitment to customer service. 
No question this is a first-rate operation

The professionals at Knight Construction Design transformed our house and elevated our neighborhood in only a few short weeks. I was looking for a total transformation, with the highest quality materials, for a fair price - I found them all with Knight. Gary, Kristen, and the entire crew helped us to consider all aspects of our project; from materials, colors, style, timing, logistics, and follow-up, everything came together perfectly. The team was attentive and complete - I felt like I was their only client; no detail was missed or ignored. 

I have already recommended Knight to my neighbors and will have them back to my house when the next project is ready to start. Thanks team!

Hi Gary, we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the kitchen and mudroom. We wouldn't change a thing. The heated mudroom floor is really a nice feature especially today. I also successfully hosted and cooked my first Thanksgiving. Loved the counter space and appliances, turkey was pretty good too! The eating area has been great for card parties. Finally, we added a beverage center and a walnut cabinet and shelves and it blends in beautifully with Knight's work. Hope you are well and business is strong. Happy holidays!

"We love it. Thanks so much for all your time, patience and extra effort to have it done by the holidays. We just wanted to let you know that you have been just great to work with. It’s been a dream come true for us. Our addition, with the new windows and siding looks fab. It won’t be too much longer and it will be done. What fun! Thanks so much!"

"Thank you Knight Construction for doing a wonderful job on our house. From our initial meeting with Gary to the very last day we felt you met and often exceeded our expectations. Gary really took the time to listen to what we wanted from the project. The crew that worked here was very professional, and courteous. Jeff Harrison, our project manager, was at the house almost everyday and days he was not here was always accessible by phone. Michelle Drenckhahn was a terrific help in the design aspect of the project. She also really listened to our ideas and helped us make some excellent design choices. Everyone was respectful of our lives, home, and concerns. We are extremely happy with the finished project and would recommend Knight Construction to anyone. Thanks again!"

When I was looking up your phone number from the web site I saw your beautiful remodeling photos. You guys do great work. I even saw the photos from our remodel job, and it really made me miss our house. I would be thrilled if you could just duplicate the house here in SC! : ) Last month my seven year old asked if we could move the MN house here. I said no and tried to explain why. Then he said he's going to buy the house when he's older. Tell Gary his work is still a hit with our family, even with our 7 year old!

We hired knight Construction to do our remodel. They did an complete remodel and addition to our home. We are so happy with our new home. We now have a new bathroom , gourmet kitchen, great room, butler pantry, four season porch, and 2 new bed rooms with walk in closets. Our home is an entry in the Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase. It is so beautiful! I can hardly believe it is mine. I feel like I am on vacation every day. Gary Knight and his staff Kristen,Jeff, and Kelly were wonderful. They listen to what we wanted and went the extra mile to make sure we got it .They even helped prep us on how to make the remodel go smoothly by helping to create a make shift kitchen in the basement so we could continue to cook as we stayed in our home during the entire remodel. We cannot say enough about this company! They provided quality workmanship and knowledge. They worked with our schedule keeping us informed every step of the way. We are looking forward to working with Knight Construction on phase two of our remodel right after showing off our new home in the Parade of Homes! Gary Knight we love you and your staff for making such a new beautiful home for us!

We had a complete kitchen remodel and I think it is truly beautiful. Knight Construction made our vision come to life from the intial consultation and drawings to the very end. They coordinated the work schedule with the service providers and made recommendations on additional quality vendors for when we were responsible for specific selections. I could not have done this on my own with all that's going on regarding the family schedule. They were a pleasure to do business with and have already recommended them to my neighbors. A quality company to be sure.

I hired Knight Remodeling to do a kitchen remodel and was completely satisfied with the final product! Even though my project was probably not as large as some of their projects, I felt the whole team took a vested interest, just as they would for one of their more extensive projects. Kristen was a Great help when it came to cabinet selection and configuration. She was flexible and easy to work with when it came to changing some of the configurations. Her view point was Instrumental in making some of the decisions, especially for a novice such as myself. Once the cabinets were delivered, Jeff, the Project Manager made the schedule happen like clockwork and kept me up to date regarding the work schedule.

We purchased a lake home property that needed to be remodeled extensively. We chose Knight Construction of Chanhassen to do the remodel. We were really happy with the result. We now are living in our dream home. Everything in our home is high quality. Our timeline was met, and the people we worked with were very professional and extremely friendly.

Knight was an excellent partner in our recent kitchen and mudroom remodeling project. The management was engaged throughout the project and our PM was tremendously responsive and detail oriented as well. While not inexpensive, the quality of work was exceptional and well worth the cost. The designer with Knight also had great input which resulted in a very unique floorplan modification during the planning stage. All in all, great people to work with. We would use them again without hesitation.
- Drew Crew
I would highly recommend Knight Construction. They used high quality materials and had excellent workmanship. The designer had great suggestions and met with us reguarly to pick out our fixtures, countertops, cabinets and colors. The project manager communicated often, was accountable and fair. They really understood maintaining the era of our home. Our new space is amazing, we love the extra storage and the built-ins. Job well done!

Knight Construction did our kitchen/living room remodel. The quality of the work is outstanding and we couldn't be happier with the end result. The actual project took longer than we anticipated but again the finished product is exactly what we were hoping for.
- Lizzyk44
Knight Construction did a full kitchen remodel for us. The results are beautiful. The project involved moving walls and support columns, ceiling and lights, new cabinets, Wolf and Subzero appliances, soapstone and walnut countertops, marble backsplash, new pendant lighting. They managed the entire project from design to finish. The new layout makes the kitchen look much bigger and has better traffic flow. They also refinished the floors and added new lighting to the kitchenette and hallway, so the design ties in with the rest of the house. We have much better functionality and the kitchen is the center of focus in the house now.

"A meeting with contractor Gary Knight turned a bothersome problem into an exciting oppurtunity for Bob & Suzy: the chance to transform their home's plain, contempory exterior into the charming facade they had always wanted. This stunning exterior transformation earned the project an award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry." -- From Better Homes & Gardens Remodel magazine August/September 2008 issue
