About Us

We know it’s an important decision when you choose a builder for your home and it’s a decision that we don’t take lightly at Creek Hill Custom Homes.

Our Philosophy

We achieve quality control by working with a carefully-selected team of experienced subcontractors and vendors who have proven their expertise in quality craftsmanship and superior products that will last the life of your home. So when you choose Creek Hill, you’ll work with a veteran builder and design team who truly know construction with a focus on workmanship, quality, and design driven by your unique lifestyle.

From open gourmet kitchens and great rooms to bonus rooms made for growing families and indoor sport courts to four season rooms that offer fun as well as function, we are always redefining the design of our homes to meet our clients’ personalities as well as trends in architecture and construction that just keep getting better with time.

Where We Build

New home developments within the best school districts in Minnesota and neighborhoods with lots of amenities like private neighborhood pools and walking/biking trails are where we focus much of our building.

We also build on any lot, not just in the neighborhoods we define, so if you already own or have found a perfect lot, we can design and build a custom home to fit your site.

Streamlined Design Process

Designing and building your home is an exciting time and you should be able to enjoy the process. You have the commitment of our entire team and a company-wide philosophy to create a smooth process from start to finish with no surprises. By streamlining our communication system, our process, and all the ways that we design and build, you can truly enjoy the design and construction of your dream home. We want you to have fun and get involved in the process - collect ideas on sites like Pinterest and Houzz to discover, plan, and collect ideas for color palettes, room design, fixtures, materials, and much more.

From blueprint to closing, we listen to your wants, needs, and concerns.

Home design and building is backed by the hands-on construction experience of Mike Hillesheim, president of Creek Hill Custom Homes, who after serving in the U.S. Navy, learned the art of home construction as a carpenter before starting his own custom design/build company nearly 30 years ago. And, it only makes sense that "Hillesheim" actually means "hills of homes".
Developing his custom home building company from his own framing business, Mike's hands-on knowledge and approach to the process has always ensured that the level of detail and quality surpass the highest standards. Whether fitting a home perfectly on a home site or adding unique features to a client's custom plan, Mike's favorite part of the process is bringing the client's vision to life.

Hundreds visit our model homes during Spring and Fall Parade of Homes, the Luxury Home Tour, and Artisan Home Tour to experience firsthand our evolving designs and ideas. And homeowners who build with us often come back to build their second and third homes.

Building "hills of homes" takes teamwork, and the members of the Creek Hill Custom Homes team average over 20 years’ experience working directly with Mike, and in some cases have over 20 to 30 years of experience in our local construction industry.

Let Us Bring Your Vision to Life
