Don and his team demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and technical knowledge of large dimensional wood structures. Their insights and experience provided a rustic solution to our porch and decking such that our home looks like it was born to be in the forest that it was placed in. Our living space has been extended for three season use and the house is protected from direct sunlight and rain all year round. I highly recommend them for anyone who wants a special touch for their special home.

DCJR Construction built our 24 x 30 garage in the summer of 2019.  The staff was very conscientious on our needs and wishes as we met on the planning.  With an upcoming wedding planned at our cabin we had a deadline that they met a couple weeks ahead of time!  The entire staff was friendly, talented, accommodating, and have a superb work ethic.  We would not hesitate to recommend them.

Bob & Deb Jakel

DCJR Construction built this garage for me this last year. I was extremely satisfied with the speed and quality of the construction. I would highly recommend Don for any building need.

Mike Quade

Don and his crew have done several projects for us.  We hired Don several years back to put new windows in our daughter's house.  He had to put new headers and footers in to support the windows.  He was there when he said he would be and did a great job.  He also built a beautiful deck on the house. 
Two years ago, his crew re-shingled our house and put new siding up. Their work is impeccable and clean-up was great!  We highly recommend Don Crass and his crew for any remodel or construction project!

William & Donna Sefton

Don and his crew were great with communication, timeliness, and most importantly craftsmanship. Don helped us with some simple projects to a complicated barrel ceiling all with great success. We would definitely hire DCJR Construction for our next project, big or small.

Miles and Colleen White

DCJR Construction was recommended to us by a very good friend. We wanted to have a tongue and groove wood ceiling installed in our great room, loft and master bedroom. They helped us with every step of the process, including picking out a great stain that went well with the rest of our decor.

We get lots of compliments on how it looks and on its craftsmanship. We are very happy with the work and would recommend DCJR Construction.

Don and Pat Sabby, Phelps WI

I am a very happy new home owner!  My dream home is not only amazing and beautiful, but the construction of the actual house is top notch quality. And I have Don Crass and his awesome crew to thank for that!

Once the foundation was poured, Don and his crew started building my house or what I learned is called rough framing in the construction industry. Putting up the walls, windows, floors, trusses, and framing everything in. And they did a fantastic job!  

When I first started considering building a house on the land I had recently purchased, I learned that the word on the street from several random sources was that you want Don Crass to build your house as he’s the best in northern Wisconsin for quality custom work. And I experienced that was very very true!  

Don and his crew are very professional, hard working, detail oriented, and they go above and beyond all expectations. I was so impressed!

As my home construction moved through the different phases of building, I had other contractors comment on the quality of the house structure. Several different contractors were installing either the flooring, tile, cabinets, roof, and gutters, and they all commented on how solid, straight, and squared up everything was. And when I said I had Don Crass and his crew, they all said oh that’s why it’s such good quality. Lucky you to have him do the rough framing. Yes, lucky me!

Now I’ve been living in my dream home for almost a year and everyday I love it more and more. Thank you Don and crew for making me the happiest new home owner ever with a solid, safe, and perfectly constructed home!
