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 led to providing more specialty construction methods.

Three Generations Strong

Now in our third generation of ownership, we maintain construction crews experienced in conventional home building as well as remodeling, log work, timber frame accents, ICF building (Insulated Concrete Forms), 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?


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


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.


We know the project is not complete until the job site is entirely clean of all debris and construction material.

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


We are licensed and insured.

Competitive, Guaranteed Pricing
