Uncompromising Craftsmanship

“I built my first house when I was 12 years old.”

– James Anderson, President

Once a teacher of math and science; Jim Anderson brings a unique approach to building. He holds a Bachelors degree in business administration with a minor in economics and a master’s in education. His grandfather was a Swedish cabinetmaker. Jim did indeed build his first house, a play house, with a door, windows and siding at the age of twelve, and sold it.

Grown entirely from referrals over the last 39 years, James Anderson Builders, Inc. specializes in custom homes and remodeling. In collaboration with some of the better architects and designers, Jim has accomplished successful and award winning projects. Small by design, James Anderson Builders has been larger and maintains a size that allows clear and direct communication with homeowners who may be absent during the construction process.

A stickler for precision, detail and quality, Jim established Architectural Elements of Michigan, a design and custom cabinetry/furniture and millwork facility, in 2003 to support his growing clientele and the workmanship they demanded. Today, these two companies employ over 20 carpenters, designers and cabinet makers.

Jim has been a member of the National Association of Home Builders for over 35 years and has taken an active role in advancing the profession of building. Currently, he serves on the Green Building Committee and is a Certified Green Builder. Jim has also served on the County Planning Commission and currently on the Kasson Township Planning Commission. Over the years, Jim has been fortunate and successful enough to give back to the community in participation with Habitat for Humanity, Child and Family Services, and private individuals.
