I am a small custom home builder where you will get personal hands-on service with volume builder type pricing. When you call, I am the one who answers the phone.

I specialize in building custom homes on your lot and really enjoy the process of helping you start with a raw piece of ground and and turn it into your custom home vision.

My goal is always to get this done as efficiently as possible. I do this by:

  1. Having a highly organized job site.
  2. Using only the most professional, experienced craftsmen.
  3. Being a hands-on builder personally supervising the job site.
  4. Consistently paying all suppliers and subcontractors on time, and in full, in return for the best pricing available.

The results for you are a better product, for less money in less time.

Paul Karlsen, Owner, Paul Karlsen Building LLC


Paul Karlsen started in the new construction industry for his dad at 14 years old, working summers and school vacations. He enjoyed what he was doing, and learned a lot about the trade from his dad. He was fascinated with the whole process of building a complete house from start to finish and his dream was to do that as opposed to doing just a part of it.

So in 1982 Paul obtained a general contractors license and with the help of his dad he was able to get a construction loan and build a complete new home for sale. That home sold and other homebuyers seeing what he was offering hired him to build their homes. He has enjoyed that process so much he has never quit. After many years of building, a lot of the homes he builds each year are for past customers or friends and relatives that they have referred. New customers are always welcome of course.

Mission Statement

To provide you with a quality, well built, and great looking custom home that will give you thousands of dollars of equity the day you move in.
