Our Team

Patrick Raugstad: President

With an eye for detail and extensive credentials, Patrick Raugstad is the man for the job when it comes to managing the Chicago North Shore home builder that is Raugstad Incorporated.

After college, Patrick worked as a carpenter for 10 years, where he found that he had developed a deep understanding of all facets of construction and an eye for the important details. A second generation builder, Patrick began building professionally in 1974. Patrick has had a direct hand in commercial, industrial, and residential building jobs.

With longstanding experience as a Chicago North Shore home builder, Patrick was also a project superintendent for Babco Incorporated, and then went on to become the Vice President at Raugstad Construction when his father was President. At that time, Patrick’s focus was on industrial, commercial and residential building. Soon, however, he would go on to start his own company.

When Patrick Raugstad started Raugstad Incorporated, he decided that the focus should be on custom home building and spec homes, particularly in the North Shore area. It is his personalized approach to custom building projects that sets him apart. As a builder, Patrick takes into account all aspects of each plan, pinpoints the problem areas, and turns them into solutions.
