About Us

We are a small custom home builder where you will get personal hands-on-service with volume builder type pricing. 

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

Our goal is always to get this done as efficiently as possible. We are able to achieve this by:

  • Having a highly organized job site.
  • Using only the most professional, experienced craftsmen.
  • Being a hands-on builder personally supervising the job site.
  • 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.

We have dozens of references available; just ask.

Paul Karlsen,
Owner,
Karlsen Building LLC

Born and raised in the Northwest, Paul Karlsen loves the outdoors. Outside of his work he enjoys spending time with his wife, children, and, grandson, taking advantage of everything the Northwest has to offer. He and his family enjoy salmon and steelhead fishing, trips to beach, and surfing.

HISTORY

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.
