Putting Fun In People's Homes

We Build the Fun Stuff has been pioneering the fun frontier in homes across the Twin Cities for decades. William Valento started perfecting home interiors in 1988 when he launched his career as a remodeling contractor. By 1994, design and quality had become the signature mark of the company and he had become widely known for high ­quality design and impeccable craftsmanship. Fireplaces were the new trend in the 1990s and Valento experienced a boom of customers wanting beautiful custom fireplaces through the ‘90s, resulting in more than 3,500 custom fireplaces being designed and installed after a few short years at a leading fireplace showroom in the Twin Cities.

It didn’t take long to notice that people want more than just a basement in their homes—they wanted that perfect vacation spot that included affordable home theaters, wet bars, saunas, wine cellars, ultimate bathrooms and extra room for growing families. They wanted pure and simple fun—spaces to relax, play, socialize and live. William dubbed it “Building the Fun Stuff.” This became the mantra for the company and the true identity of Valento Contracting Inc. was born. Nearly nothing is more rewarding than creating memories and filling rooms with laughter and fun—and that is exactly what We Build the Fun Stuff does every single day.

We are now one of the Twin Cities largest and most affordable home improvement contractors that specializes in building “fun.” We encourage you to give us call for a free in­home design consultation to see for yourself how affordable finishing your basement can be because when your house can be a place where people gather to hang out, have fun or relax, then it truly becomes your home sweet home.
