About Better Built Homes, Inc


Better Built Homes, Inc. is 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 summers with them as apprentices in various trades. Together we worked our way from apprentices, to journeyman, to lead carpenters. Along the way we learned various trades in carpentry, siding, roofing, trim carpentry, cabinetry installation, flooring installation, and concrete foundations and flat work.


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 steadily providing superior craftsmanship, value and service to builders and homeowners ever since. As the company grew we were able to expand our list of quality services to include exterior carpentry, siding and interior carpentry. Our early education of many different aspects of home building has provided us with 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 services. That is why Better Built Homes, Inc. really does build a better home.


We believe that honesty and integrity are keys to a success business. Therefore we are licensed Building Contractors in both MN and Wi. And have remained in good standing with both states. Because of our ethical business practices we were invited to become accredited members of the Better Business Bureau in 2007 and have maintained an A+ rating. We are also members of three builder associations. The National Association of Home Builders, the Wisconsin Builders Association, and the St. Croix Valley Builders Association.
