Karr-Bach Builders (Mike Karrels and Craig Halbach), has been in business for over 11 years. We have experienced growth each year, growing from $500,000 in sales the first year to over 2 million in multiple years. Our primary markets are “move up” type homes, typically the second, third and/or last home that people will usually have built, custom remodels and additions, and custom commercial jobs. Because of the reputation we have acquired from years of exemplary service we have cemented ourselves as a quality builder in this local market.


We have done this work with our bare hands, what we bring to the table is experience and proven ability. The best way to describe our company is through our past customers. At your request we will provide a list of references and copies of written testimonials from our past customers.

A customer first attitude can, and almost always does, cost a little more to produce at first. In the long run though, by producing a top quality product that is a pleasure to live in and with a sharp focus on energy savings, healthy building practices, and attention to detail in areas of resale value, the payback is immense. We believe it is because of this philosophy that we are in this position of having an opportunity to work on your project.
