Better Built Homes, Inc. is a family business owned and operated by two cousins Jess and Mike Nelson. We are second generation Home Builders. Our fathers were Jacks of all Trades and as young teenagers we began working with them as Laborers and Apprentices in various trades. Together we worked our way from Laborers to Lead Carpenters. Along the way we learned various trades including framing, siding, roofing, trim carpentry, cabinetry installation, flooring installation, and concrete foundations and flatwork. Our early education of many different aspects of home building has provided us with a unique knowledge of the building process. This knowledge along with our pride in a job well done has given us the ability to consistently provide our customers with superior products and service. That is why Better Built Homes, Inc. really does frame a better home.
At the young ages of 20 and 22 we decided to strike out together as Framing Sub Contractors and also General Contracted our first spec home that same year. Both were a success and we formed and Incorporated Better Built Homes, Inc. in 1997 and have been consistently providing superior craftsmanship, value, and service to Builders and Homeowners ever since. At the beginning we did a little bit of everything. Our first ten years or so as a Company we provided Framing, Trim Carpentry, Siding Installation, and General Contracted many new homes, remodels and additions.
As our reputation for great work and fair pricing grew we determined that instead of doing many things it was time to focus on and become the best at one thing. Framing is and was the favorite for both of us, so we decided Framing Contractors is what we are. In the beginning we Framed houses just the two of us. Soon after we hired our first employee, then another, then we decided we each should run a crew and we grew to two framing crews, then three, then four, now five, and still growing.
Currently we have five very good and efficient Framing crews and we are still growing. Both owners are still in the field every day with tool belts on helping our crews to get the job done right and on time. Each of our crews are led by a highly experienced and skilled long time employee. Our crews typically consist of 4 or 5 Framers, and all necessary tools and equipment to get the job done quickly and correctly. We typically frame well over 100 homes a year and provide Framing for numerous Builders and the occasional Homeowner. We frame Residential projects only and build anything from a small garage to multi-million dollar estates.
