About Colin

Colin is the owner of Nygaard Builders where he’s been building custom homes since 2017. He graduated from North Dakota State University with a degree in civil engineering, which first led him to work with the government for seven years on dams, reservoirs, and other large regional water systems. He then spent the next eight years working as a consulting engineer for design and construction of water pipelines, tanks, and water treatment plants. He has 15 years of experience in engineering and three years of experience in home building. This experience provides him with knowledge to save clients’ money, provide a better product, and build faster. He wants to continue to make the process of home building more streamlined, simpler, and interactive through the use of new technology like apps or VR.

He hopes this will make him one of the top custom home builders in the Billings area. Colin’s favorite part of his work is the rewarding process of seeing a project go from a piece of dirt to a home for a family. He also likes having his own business and how he holds his own future in his hands, despite the risks and sleepless nights that come from working for yourself. In his free time, Colin enjoys anything outdoors, dogs, football, riding his motorcycle, flying, and even mining for the cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.


At a cost of roughly $150 per square foot, building a house from the ground up is a daunting task, and one of the most expensive purchases you can make in your life. Your contractor and builders will likely start feeling like family by the end of the process—and that is exactly the relationship we aim to build with you. Nygaard Builders, LLC puts a lot of value in your trust and will always return it in kind.

This is also the relationship we have with our subcontractors. We put a lot of care into our work, and so all our partner companies must have the same standards. When subcontracting is necessary, you can be sure the company is an established one that has done quality work for us in the past. This means you will not have to worry about us hiring an untested subcontractor to install your windows only to result in shoddy workmanship when the rest of your home is up to code!

Our contractors look at building a new home as one large puzzle. If all the pieces do not connect properly, they will not present it to you as a completed job.


With Nygaard Builders, LLC, while it’s an option, you don’t have to be constrained to a pre-made blueprint that may have been used by other homeowners. We encourage you to look through our portfolio and around the Internet, gather your ideas, and together we can design an entirely custom plan based on your findings.

Need suggestions along the way? We’ll consult with you to brainstorm features you may never have considered otherwise. Exposed beams? Columns? A laundry chute? You’d be amazed at what we can do, and in the end you’ll be in a magazine-ready home, completely unique to you! The possibilities are endless.

Nygaard Builders, LLC doesn’t just build homes, we build experiences. Through our commitment to you and your dream, we strive to exceed expectations and create a space for you and your family to live and grow in for years to come.

We hope you are as excited as we are to speak to one another and start building!
