Structures

Frontier Structures, LLC. designs and manufactures high performance structures that are perfect for expanding your personal living space. Our buildings are designed with industry leading products and materials resulting in a stunning product capable of meeting the next generation of energy standards. These structures are designed and built in Minnesota and are intended to be used in all climates. We offer kit packages for the do-it-yourselfer as well as turn-key build solutions where our team will handle the full installation.

Our product benefit not only provides a quality structure for our clients, but much beyond that. These buildings are about enabling a lifestyle. Running out of space in your home is one thing, but running out of time in your day is even more challenging to overcome. Having a Frontier Structure that enables you to work from a luxurious home office, utilize your own personal gym, or have that private studio, means you can spend more time at home and less time on the commute.

These structures can all be designed and built as either non-dwelling or dwelling units. Examples of non-dwelling would be a boat house, pool house, yoga studio, or home office. Examples of a dwelling unit would be an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit), guest house, cabin, granny pod or “mother-in-law” studio.

Frontier Kits

A building from Frontier Structures can be achieved through a variety of phases. We offer them in basic kit packages, shell build out packages and a full turn-key solutions – meaning a full installation by Frontier Structures or associated contractor.

A standard kit package includes all materials that would be needed for assembling the shell of the building and completing the exterior finishes. Packages are shown using conventional building methods but all models are also available using Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). For these kits, the owner must prepare the building site as necessary for the structure with either a full foundation, concrete slab, patio, deck or simply a level surface directly on gravel and also manage the utilities such as plumbing, HVAC and electrical.
