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.
