ABOUT THE BUILDER
In 1985 with a business degree from the University of MN in hand, Tom Dehn headed home to continue working the family farm. In 1988 he moved to Ft. Worth, TX to begin his building career. With a crew of skilled craftsman and a dream of building custom homes, Tom moved back home and started Mega Homes, Inc. in 1991. Mega Homes, Inc. built over 200 high end custom homes in the Northern Metro areas. The business’ success was based on quality, fulfillment of completion dates, and never missing a single closing date. In 2010, Tom sold his shares in Mega Homes Inc. to concentrate on Land Development and Power Lodge.
While operating Mega Homes, Tom quickly learned the value of developing his own land, and controlling a neighborhoods success. In 2000, Tom began developing his own land and neighborhoods. He has since developed 12 projects including Northtown Meadows. Tom’s passion for the entire residential building process drew him to create Thomas Allen Homes, LLC.
Tom’s many accomplishments have been concentrated in three main areas…home building, land development, and power sports. He currently acts as sole owner of 3 Dehns, Inc. (development company), Thomas Allen Homes, LLC (home builder), and Power Lodge with stores in Brainerd, Onamia, and Ramsey. His current development and building projects include: The Meadows and Spruce Reserve in the Brainerd Lakes Area; exclusive builder in Pine Trails Nisswa; Zachary Preserve and Sundance Development in the Northwest metro area; and has arranged building access in Rush Lake Preserve and Hazeltine Bay in the Brainerd lakes area.
Thomas Allen Homes’ goal is to provide new home options for a range of single family homes for starting, growing and downsizing family needs. With recent new construction cost increasing, the Brainerd Lake Area has a very limited supply of single family new construction homes. Tom’s experience and knowledge is a necessity in providing these new home options in the 200-300’s price range. Amid a busy schedule, Tom resides in both Brainerd and Andover, with his wife Denise and their 5 children.
