About Us


How We Began

Kent Nickell Construction came to be
through lots of work and perseverance.

I began my construction career at the age of 20. I worked alongside two talented general contractors for several years. I finally felt like I knew enough to build my own home. I took a deep breath and began that process. That gave me the courage to get my general contractor's license.

In 1986, I became a general contractor and became Kent Nickell Construction. Through the years, I have seen the busy, booming times in the construction industry. I have also been through the lean years of the industry.

There are so many new technologies today that were not around when I started. I feel that the industry has made changes for the better. There are top-quality products available now that were not around when I started. I think there are many new and exciting developments ahead for new home buyers in the area of residential construction.

Our Values

I believe in good communication between myself, the builder, and you, the home buyer. We know that a house is so much more than just walls and a roof. This is the place where we escape the world and live our lives our way.

Through the 40 plus years I have been building homes, I have been able to help people achieve the dream of owning a home.

Building can be stressful for home buyers. They have a lot of questions through the construction process. I can answer those questions and help smooth over the stressful parts of construction.
