When we established Keplinger & Keranen Builders, Inc. in 2001 with just one small crew, not one of us could have predicted the growth and success we’d achieve in the first several years. With a leader like Lars Keplinger at the helm, it’s no surprise that the culture at K&K has attracted many hard-working family men who have chosen to put down roots and build their careers here. Lars has set high standards right from the beginning and deserves credit for imprinting his values, easy-going demeanor, and strong work ethic onto everyone he works with. It’s a good thing this culture caught and spread early on because it’s likely that the can-do attitude and tireless work ethic of our entire organization is the shield that has allowed us to weather both economic storms and growth spurts in the same steady, no-nonsense manner.

Since the beginning, our dream team has grown to more than 50 employees. Over the years, we've become known as the area's leading framing experts. Our framing work has allowed us to forge strong relationships with many contractors, subcontractors, and homeowners alike. In the last couple of years, we've built on this reputation and expanded our services to include General Contracting, Project Management, and On-Site Supervision services. For this, we rely heavily on Eric Hill, our Project Manager. Eric comes to K&K with a track record and character reputation that aligns perfectly with that of K&K Builders. Best of all, he shares the same values and long-term goals as the rest of the team here.

Whether you come to us for your framing needs or other construction services, we think you'll find us easy to work with. Join the ranks of our satisfied clients, and you'll experience what it's like to live through a hassle-free building project. Be careful though - you just may get hooked!
