Our Team

Nick Spalding


Nick began his career in the construction industry at the age of 16, working as a laborer for Homes by Chase. He studied Construction Management at the University of Minnesota while working as a Project Manager for Mattamy Homes, and in his 10 years of time there – built over 600 homes in the City of Woodbury. During his years with Mattamy Homes, he was a top producer in his position while maintaining the highest customer satisfaction ratings throughout all of the U.S. divisions.

Nick started Craft Homes in 2014 with an eagerness to build quality homes that exceed expectations – by customizing homes to best fit a customer’s (life)style, delivering quality at a fair price, and allowing his “make it happen” motto deliver.

Nick enjoys all phases of the construction process, and although he is involved in the entire build process – he is most happy on a jobsite talking with our trade partners, at a computer drafting Craft Homes’ next greatest floorplan, or meeting with customers to help understand their needs and structure their home to exceed expectations.

McKenzie Spalding


McKenzie has spent her entire professional life dedicated to providing the highest level of customer service and building relationships that are based on transparency, integrity and great communication. Since changing directions and stepping away from her “corporate life,” she has thoroughly enjoyed joining Nick in their family business, and working with families to help them envision their dream home and bring it to life!  McKenzie’s most enjoys her time with brand management, design and ensuring customer satisfaction throughout the home building process.

Al began his construction career with Craft Homes in 2016, and his lifelong passion for understanding how things work and “go together” couldn’t be more evident in his daily work. He prides himself on proving the impossible possible, and is our resident “get it done” guy. More often than not, Al can be found on a jobsite – working with our Trade Partners to ensure progress and quality standards are met, showcasing his knowledge on certain projects throughout each home and playing an integral role in ensuring each important milestone of the build process is achieved.
