Testimonials From Our Clients...

“Jeff and his crew built us a house in the summer of 2014. They finished the construction early and within the budget. The finished product was better than our expectations. We could not have been more pleased. Jeff was professional and yet, down-to-earth from our first meeting. He gave us plenty of notice and guidance for decisions we needed to make. He met with us regularly to fill us in on the progress and upcoming schedule. When glitches came up, Jeff handled them. We built a home in 1984 and we were the General Contractor. We would never suggest that to anyone. Put your trust in a professional and Jeff certainly earned our trust. We highly recommend him.”

A Bit About Us.

Arns Family

My name is Jeff Arns, and I am the owner and president of Arns Custom Builders. I grew up in the Brainerd Lakes area where I met my beautiful wife of twenty-two years, Laura. We are the proud parents of our two wonderful children, Hailey and Ryan.

I earned my business management degree and while doing so, I began to work for a few general contractors in the area. Soon I realized that if I combined my business management knowledge with my hands on experience, I could greatly improve on both the quality of work and the client satisfaction within the industry.

After graduation, I obtained my general contractor’s license and established Arns Custom Builders in 2004. I believe that treating clients with honesty and integrity will help build long term relationships. We strive to complete every job on time and on budget. I have found that treating clients with respect, providing quality craftsmanship, and running a smooth and timely schedule allows us to rise above our competitors and leave every client fully satisfied. We would love the opportunity to work with you through your building process.
