Brookings Built Green, Inc. was founded by Dusten Hendrickson in 2011. Since we started as a company, we have been building stunning modern homes, redesigns, and commercial buildings.

We use high-quality design elements and work closely with industry professionals for each phase of the modern home design and building process. This ensures that each and every project meets our client’s expectations.

At Brookings Built Green, we understand that it can be expensive to build a new home in the ever-changing economy we live in, which is why it is our goal to design and build homes that are affordable. We are happy to provide financing solutions for certain new construction products so that you can make your modern dream home come to life.

Drew believes that Brookings Built Greens' marketing and advertising should be  modern, unique and designed properly to match to their properties.

Shalene Hendrickson began decorating and staging for Brookings Built Green from the start to allow potential homeowners to get a better feel of each unique property. Shay's main focus is lighting and furniture. She believes the most important factors to each of these are to be eclectic - meaning all different styles of lighting and furniture. She enjoys mixing old and new styles so that the space does not become outdated. Her favorite is to add heirloom quality furniture, rugs, and antiques in modern homes for warmth. It's all about the feeling you get when you enter a space. Shay is married to Dusten and they have three children. They have a son on the spectrum and that makes it more difficult to go places, so Shay focuses her time and energy into creating beautiful comfortable spaces for their family to enjoy together. You will also see them on many family bike rides around Brookings.

We look forward to hearing from you
