Alexandria Custom Home Design Studio

About Our Studio

Wausau Homes Alexandria Design Studio is a custom home builder in Northern Minnesota around the lakes and communities of Douglas and Pope County. Home builder Mike Hested was a lifelong handyman with experience building his own homes when he decided to open his doors in 2015. Mike’s state-of-the-art design studio helps homebuyers make the right decision when choosing home plans, fixtures, and all the special interior and exterior finishes that make your home unique. Using 3D home modelling, Mike is able to help homebuyers visualize their dream home before any construction begins. This guided home building process alleviates stress for new home owners and ensures your new custom home is built your way, with a firm price at contract signing, and built on time so that your family can move in stress-free.

Mike grew up in Southern Minnesota, but he and his family have been part of the Alexandria community for the last eight years. Together they live in Glenwood, MN where Mike spent many family vacations growing up. Mike formerly served on the Board of Directors for the United Way of Pope and Douglas Counties. Since early in his career, he has seen first-hand what being a responsible corporate citizen means and looks forward to carrying on the tradition of staying involved locally through local youth sports teams sponsorship in both Glenwood and Alexandria.
