Brakstad Builders recently created a beautiful office space in our garage. We immediately knew we had the right person because Erik approached the project as if it were in his own house. He took great care with the details and in presenting us with options for each stage of the process, without any pressure. He built us a killer office with wonderful wood details and a lot of natural light. Erik is a pleasure to work with, straight forward on costs, and creates a high quality product. Brakstad Builders gets our highest recommendation.

My wife and I were about to embark on our first major construction project. Knowing Erik from our community we decided to pursue his professional services. From the very beginning, when we sat down on our front porch to discuss renovating our kitchen and bathroom, I felt like we were in good hands. I really appreciated Erik’s straightforward, sincere and professional approach of handling the major construction on our first house. Throughout the construction, he was a pleasure to work with and made our lives easier with thoughtfulness, organization, communication and by anticipating instead of just reacting. He also works with an incredibly sound crew of subcontractors. In the end we are thrilled with our new kitchen and bathroom, AND, he came in under budget.

I have worked with many builders — none better than Erik. He consistently produces high quality work. Most importantly, he communicates during every aspect of the building process – keeping an eye on the bottom line, while honoring the shifting desires of the client.

Brakstad Builders provides a top-quality product, on-time, and within budget, with wonderful communication along the way. Erik is the contractor that one loves to have on site: he provides a reliable, safe, considerate, problem-solving approach to projects, while incorporating a true belief in recycling & reclaimed materials.
