Our business has been a family business- ever since Richard Vail (Vail Builders Inc) Built his first house in 1966 in Hugo that his wife and six children moved into, the first official home of Vail Builders Inc.  He hired relatives and friends even co-workers that were looking for work as his business grew. 

After 20 years his son James R. Vail joined the company becoming a master carpenter and contractor with a knowledge of computers taking the business into another direction (designing). 

In 1972 Vail Builders Inc began a development in Hugo called Evergreen Hills with 34 homes in all. A few years later he started another development in White Bear Lake on the south west corner of Buffalo street and Northwestern with another 22 homes in it. 

In 1982 Vail builders Inc started another development in Hugo called Shamrock Glen with a total of 13 homes and multiple single family homes around the area throughout the years.
