Welcome to Odyssey Development & Construction

Odyssey Development and Construction is a full service builder who can turn your
“dirt and a dream” into the custom home that will bring you and your family both pride and comfort.


The vision of Odyssey Development began in 1981 with its own “dirt and a dream”. Today, the company employs over 200 people. The experience gained along the way has resulted in a solid reputation as an innovative developer and quality builder. Just ask any of the hundreds of vacation home owners for whom the company has built homes and currently provides property management services.

When you choose Odyssey Development to help design and build your new home in Duluth or on the North Shore of Lake Superior, our experience will benefit you in several ways:

  • Our custom home division is led by our on-staff architect who personally works with all clients.
  • We offer breadth of experience, both in years of experience and types of home designs.
  • The discerning eye of a professional insures that the details are done right. Our attention to every detail will result in the quality and finish you and your family will appreciate for years to come.
  • Our Seven Step Building Process lets you know what to expect when, so there is a flow to the process and there are no surprises.
  • We adhere to schedules and budgets throughout all phases of your new home construction.
  • We have long-term relationships with designers and sub-contractors. You can count on your project manager to coordinate and communicate with you and with the many other professionals involved, giving you confidence in the process and your home investment.
  • We believe that good process and organization results in better homes. We create and stick to construction timelines. We document things well – we believe in close relationships with our subcontractors and also believe that “hand shake” deals are not proper for seamless construction.
  • We are based in Duluth, Minnesota and believe in conference room meetings – not “back of pick-up truck” meetings.

Odyssey Development shares your vision and has the experience in home building to maximize your investment by bringing value to each phase of the design and construction process. Choose Odyssey Development, and you’ll not only be guaranteed the best value, you’ll also have the peace of mind that comes with an engaged, experienced, professional team working specifically for you, until you’re comfortably settled, living the good life in your new home.
