Meet Butch Sprenger
Butch Sprenger has been building and remodeling homes that reflect the needs and desires of Twin Cities’ families since opening Destiny Homes in 2005. From day one, Butch has based his company on “providing homeowners with a fantastic construction experience…unlike any other.” Butch and his entire team are pledged to go above and beyond to ensure their customers have both a rewarding building experience and a home that they love.
“We take the time to get to know each customer as individuals, and as a family,” Butch explains. “We work with each homeowner to create a stress-free construction process. Our goal is to listen to the homeowner then explore and create options within each homeowner’s budget while discovering solutions for each family. We are creative, organized, efficient, fast, and successful. We pay attention to every single detail.”
Butch’s business philosophy is founded in the lessons he learned growing up. His parents owned a dairy, hog and poultry farm, teaching Butch and his 13 siblings the value of hard work and the satisfaction of a job well done.
Butch’s construction career started in the mid 1970’s as a framer in Alaska. He went on to work commercial construction in the early 1980’s. In 1984, he took a framing job with Twin Cities’ building legend, Joe Miller Homes. He was promoted to project manager 1991 and then was named vice president of construction in 2000. By then, the firm had been sold to top national home builder, D.R. Horton, Inc.
Those years provided Butch with a deep understanding of the home building business and how to make great homes for happy customers. They also helped him envision his next step.
“My Dad was a great entrepreneur and it’s in my blood, too,” Butch explains. “I’ve always been more a leader more than a follower. I practiced building a company at my previous employers and it worked into being my own start-up company called Destiny Homes.”
For Butch, Destiny Homes is his legacy. He keeps it small enough to be directly involved in every single project. But at the core, he makes sure his firm is grounded in exceptional relationships – with customers, staff, trade partners and vendors.
Since opening the doors, Butch has built and remodeled hundreds of homes for happy families all across the region. “We wouldn’t use anyone but Butch and his team; there really was no choice,” report Destiny homeowners, Tom and Karen Stauber.

Butch has also earned a number of industry honors over the years. In addition to a variety of awards for construction and design, Destiny Homes won Best of Houzz Service in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019; and was named BATC-Housing First Minnesota’s Remodeler of the Year in both 2010 and 2015.
But there’s a lot more to Butch than building. He’s been involved in micro-financing with Hope International and has been an advocate of Teen Challenge for over 25 years. He’s worked with youth sports since 1984 at Southwest Christian and Eden Prairie High Schools, including coaching the girls high school basketball team to section finals.
Butch likes to travel and hunt, plus he enjoys theatre, entertaining and sports. He’s also a super dad and grandpa, “I love hanging out with my three sons and five grandkids.”
Looking for a way to spend more time with his son, Ben, the pair began raising honeybees several years ago. It definitely worked, and now they keep busy managing a dozen or more hives. Read more about Butch’s bee business here. CLICK HERE
