The progression of our studio space is a visual understanding of our dreams for gd and where we started. Our first shop was in a two-stall garage apartment garage of GD partner Blain Mikkonen.  No heat, no air, but here the dream was started.

From there we grew into our first “OFFICIAL” address as Grain Designs in West Fargo complete with a custom reclaimed basketball hoop, pull-up bar, and our first office.

Today we have a great facility on a farm southwest of Fargo.  The perfect rural location with room to grow, and hit golf balls around the yard.  I guess you could call this location Grain Designs world headquarters.
