Company History


Friends Clarence Hemmelgarn and Milo Martinson start H&M Construction building homes and cabins in Perham, MN.


Clarence's son, Jim Hemmelgarn, age 12, joins the company as a Jobsite Sweeper. 


Milo retires and sells his half of the business to Clarence, who renames the company Hemmelgarn Construction.


After a lifetime in construction, Clarence retires. Jim takes over full-time and renames the company Hemmelgarn Builders Inc.


Jim's son, Troy Hemmelgarn, age 12,  joins the company as a Jobsite Sweeper, as is tradition.


Troy graduates from MSCTC with a construction management degree and joins the company full time.


Troy and Megan purchase the company.  Jim briefly considers retirement, laughs, and gets back to work.  


We are busy!  If you want to be part of a great crew, it's easy to apply online. 


Our Team

We are a tight knit crew with deep experience in all facets of construction including design, concrete, framing, roofing, and finishing work.  After nearly a decade with us, Dan is still our "new guy" but everyone else has been on our team for 20+ years.  This cohesiveness allows us to provide a smooth building process and overall better experience to our clients.  Our crew is a bit camera shy but eventually we'll get their photos on here.
