KRM Development | About

You'll never see the same thing twice.

In 2004 Kirk Mickelsen drew upon his remodeling skills and other new construction experience to create KRM Development in 2004. He continues to build custom homes showcasing his creative expertise with interior features throughout the home. “Although I’ve had other jobs, it was always my passion to make home building my career – and I've never been happier,” he says.

Owner & Developer 



With help from first-rate subcontractors, Mickelsen applies his passion for detail, like the heavy trim work that earns his company continuous praise. Superior products such as marble and natural stone are used to craft creative kitchen designs and unique tiling in bathrooms in lieu of the typical ceramic finish. All KRM homes feature completely custom manufactured cabinetry.




Mickelsen’s signature trim work and natural elements go in to every home he builds. Kirk aspires for each custom home to reflect the homeowner's personality. “You’ll never see the same thing twice,” he assures.


To keep his designs fresh and stay current on trends, Mickelsen travels to other areas of the country. Incorporating new ideas makes KRM homes truly distinguishable.


Purchasing a KRM Development home is a unique and exciting experience.


At KRM we pride ourselves on our ability to understand our customers’ personal needs. From the personalization of your new home’s design to selecting the finishing touches, everything we do is built around you. We do not consider our task as simply building a house; rather, we know that we are helping to create your dream home! We will walk with you every step of the way, making it easy and stress free.

KRM Development came highly recommended from our architect. We were impressed from the very beginning when we met with the owner Kirk Michelson. He took the time to listen to what was important to us and was very knowledgeable about what materials to use, the costs, and the expert sub-contractors to get the job done right.
