218 Inspect owner Frank Lundeen about to start a home inspection on a perfect Duluth day.

Welcome to 218 Inspect Home Inspections (a division of 218 Property Services, LLC), founded by home connoisseur Frank Lundeen.

I'm a Certified Professional Inspector with InterNACHI & an accredited by ICA to do home inspections within the state of MN - with a focus on the greater Duluth areaI am responsive, thorough, use a wide variety of the latest technology, am available to schedule inspections within 1 week, and provide clients their home inspection report within 24 hours of the inspection.

218 Inspect is a culmination of a lifetime of leading, building, business ownership, & savvy - of a passion for ensuring historic homes exist in their original splendor while being safe & comfortable for modern homeowners.  

I grew up on a small farm in rural northwest Wisconsin. This lifestyle instilled a strong work ethic in me.  I grew up working on farm equipment & buildings with my hands - learning how things work.  When not working on the farm or projects, I could be found adventuring on my bicycle & xc skis.  These outdoor passions have taken me around the globe and have resulted in profound lifelong friendships & unique life experiences.

In college, I earned a degree in telecommunications - specializing in complex circuitry.  Since then, I've used these circuitry skills to re-wire homes & garages under permit in partnership with government inspectors.

As a 19 year old, I purchased my first modest home, which was in rough shape. Under permit, I fixed it up nicely ensuring it was safe, comfortable, & attractive - and sold it a few years later to a family whom still lives there. Fast forward 23 years and quite a few homes, I've restored many homes to their original splendor whilst ensuring safety & comfort for modern homeowners!  Recently, I served as Director of Maintenance for Minnesota's oldest craft brewery.

I've spend the past few decades working "day jobs" mostly in the Outdoor Industry - working sales, purchasing, brand management, owning a small business, serving as a community leader, and most recently as Director of Maintenance for a major craft brewery & restaurant. Mornings and evenings were often spent working on house restoration.  This combination of unique skills, technical experience, attention to detail, work ethic, and passion for homes are why I am a home inspector!

I live my life splitting time between Duluth & Crosby, MN - places I love for so many reasons. When not inspecting homes or working on my own fixer-upper, I can be found adventuring with my wife & daughter on bicycle & skis, helping my friends at Yker Acres Farm, or helping test high tech ski waxes for Swiss ski wax company Toko.

Next time you are in need of a professional, objective, & thorough home inspection - give me a call or book your inspection online.
