A Proud History of Reliability and Quality


JR Construction is a small, family-owned and operated construction company founded in 1961 in Verndale, Minnesota. We began as a general contractor, primarily focused on constructing conventional family homes. While this remains a large and integral part of our business, our growth throughout the decades has lead to providing more specialty construction methods.

Now in our third generation of ownership we maintain construction crews experienced in conventional home building as well as log work, remodeling, timber frame construction, ICF building, and light commercial construction. As a growing and adapting company, JR Construction strives to provide the services you seek by keeping up with evolving technologies.

Why work with us?

Experienced:  We have nearly six decades in the construction business. You can rely on us.

Responsible:  JR Construction is licensed, bonded and insured.

Timely:  Our crews perform all possible work, identify potential issues in advance and seek innovative solutions to stay on schedule — reducing costs and speeding-up project completion times.

Competitive:  We bid at competitive prices.

Guaranteed Pricing:  When you work with JR Construction, you receive a detailed contract with locked-in prices, rather than estimates.

Well-Partnered:  JR Construction is one of three construction companies aligned to meet all your remodeling or new home building needs, no matter how basic or specialized they are. Calling upon the specialties from our sister companies — Verndale Custom Homes and Whispering Pines Log Homes — we can catapult your new home ideas into reality.

Clean-up:  We know the project is not complete until the jobsite is entirely clean of all debris and construction material.

Whether you are considering a remodel or dreaming about a new home, contact JR Construction today for industry insights, design planning, product suggestions, and professional construction services second to none. We won’t let you down!
