Committed to excellence.

Since 1973 our goal has been to make your home more beautiful, comfortable, energy efficient, and to serve you with the highest standards of integrity, honesty, and care.

Reputation built on experience.

We know what works and what doesn’t work for long term value; time after time we have repaired what others have unknowingly built incorrectly! Even with the more demanding type of construction work typical of remodeling: matching existing work, protecting premises, accommodating owner requirements we consistently keep our job site clean, and provide for you the highest quality workmanship available in the Ann Arbor area.

  illustration of five green stars in a row Acheson Builders completed 3 projects for us over the last 3 years. The first two projects included replacing windows, exterior siding, and interior window trim. The third project included troubleshooting a moisture problem related to two bathroom exhaust fans, replacing those fans, and solving the problem.   During the design phase Jim met with us to thoroughly understand our needs. Jim made recommendations regarding the best choice of material taking into consideration our budget. He then prepared a very professional proposal detailing exactly what would be done.   Jim's entire crew was professional and polite. They treated our property as if it were their own.   I can't say enough good things about Jim's project manager Keith who returned emails and texts in a very timely manner (oftentimes in the evening) to address even the smallest concern, question, or change of mind that we might have had.   We frequently get compliments on the molding/trim placement that Jim designed and Ben installed for our living room windows. The project turned out to be much more time-consuming than anticipated because of issues from when our house was first built. Even so Jim completed the work within his quoted price.   If you are looking for a builder who is honest, listens to your concerns, and strives to do the best possible job, then look no more. You have found that builder in Acheson Builders.   t_hutter May 19, 2015 Source:  Houzz.com Reviews for Acheson Builders - TESTIMONIAL: Five Stars for Three Projects

All builders are NOT created equal.

All builders and remodelers are NOT the same. Some will come in and patch some ideas together in a hurry. Some will give you a really “good deal” but then you will realize later that the style just doesn’t fit. Some are good craftsmen, but they don’t have the business skills to run your job smoothly and efficiently. Some will build in a way that won’t last over the long run, because of construction errors you might not see.

And then there’s Acheson Builders.

We carefully plan and think through the whole picture. We design it to give you the best value for your budget. Jim Acheson has a sense of design and artistry that is widely acclaimed – he is skillful at bringing the elements of good design to your existing spaces, or the new ones you are wishing for. We have the skills and experience to plan and produce your project with vision, expertise, and professionalism. You have an idea or a need – Jim Acheson has an eye for bringing that idea to fruition.
