John Kraemer and Sons

A very large and lavish mansion built by John Kraemer and Sons features a long, stone driveway leading up to what looks like a castle.


Gary Kraemer and his late father John founded John Kraemer and Sons in 1978. We are proud of the fact that our builder’s license number is BC001408, one of the lowest in the industry today. We have never gone out of business, reorganized, or changed ownership.

Key to success:

The team at John Kraemer and Sons feels that the close supervision of projects is a key ingredient to our success. We have 12 job superintendents on staff, ensuring our clients will have a job superintendent who is 100 percent dedicated to their project. Many other builders have superintendents who manage five to seven projects at any given time.

“We work on each one of our projects on a 100 percent open-book basis where every bid, invoice, receipt, and discount is disclosed to the client at all times. We feel that full transparency is the only way to run a business.”

— Gary Kraemer, president,
John Kraemer and Sons


We are the Twin Cities only three-time “Builder of the Year” award recipient (1999, 2009, and 2013), an honor that is given each year to the builder who best exhibits trust, ethics, and customer satisfaction in the industry. We have also won 14 “Contractor of the Year” awards, along with numerous Reggie, Trillium, and Remodeler of Merit Awards.


“John Kraemer and Sons has an outstanding reputation for building quality homes, and that was a key factor in our decision to have them build our lake house. We were pleased—though not surprised—that they not only met, but exceeded our high expectations, delivering a fairly complex project on time and on budget. Throughout the build process, they displayed a refreshing commitment to meticulous craftsmanship and exacting quality that left us thrilled with our investment. They worked closely with our architect and designer to ensure every detail was executed flawlessly, and their diligent efforts resulted in a wonderful home we will enjoy for decades. John Kraemer and Sons will always be our builder and has earned our highest recommendation.”
