About L3 Construction

Chip Evanoff, the founder of L3 Construction, started working on homes as a child in his grandfather’s real estate business. By age 12, he was spending summers hanging ceiling fans, diagnosing failed appliances, painting apartments, laying tile and much more. In his 20s, he was literally rebuilding apartments from the studs outward. His work included bathrooms, kitchens, electrical, plumbing, plaster, drywall and painting. He even became talented at reproducing historic millwork, including the color matching of old-world stain.

Learning how to fix and repair 100-year-old buildings taught him critical problem-solving skills that can be used today in coming up with creative ways to solve complex issues or redesign homes to better fit the needs of modern living.

Specialty Craftsmanship and Experience

In the early 2000s, Chip operated a high-end custom cabinet shop that offered custom and box line cabinets, countertops, accessories and flooring. In that time, he learned to design not only functional and beautiful kitchens, but how to color match/coordinate the elements of a space to complement each other, resulting in beautiful projects that garnered the applause of experienced interior designers. Due to the local and statewide housing market downturn that caused construction and remodeling to slow to a snail’s pace, and the disruptions of Newport road construction for over 4 years along Highway 61, Chip decided to move into a new venture.

Focused on Superior Customer Service

In 2010, L3 Construction was formed. This new business began by helping friends and neighbors with their projects that required a contractor’s license to pull permits for the work. Chip also helped with a number of commercial projects, such as the build out of Black Sheep Coffee Café in South St. Paul, MN.

Since its inception, L3 Construction has been known for their amazing attention to detail, carefully designed and thought-out spaces, the willingness to go the extra mile to make the job turn out just that much better and customer service that stands out from among the crowd.

Meet our Team

I grew up a contractor’s daughter in the South Twin Cities. The idea of making people’s dreams come true was amazing to me as a child. I studied every new plan that Dad brought home to show us! Of course, this is what lead me into the design field. I started my career in kitchen and bath design for new construction in 1995. Since that time, I’ve been blessed with many opportunities to learn and grow in my design and sales work. Through work in retail, wholesale, and independent business settings; I’ve learned to understand the needs of each customer and how best to design for them. It is extremely rewarding to be able to help others create a beautiful space that meets their needs and simplifies life for them.
