About Us

Bill Knapp Sr., Owner of Knapp Builders, continues as a custom home builder in the business his father established in 1960. Our company specializes in quality custom new homes.  How many third generation Home Builders do you know?

We design and personally build your new home, commercial building or church. We do the majority of the work ourselves using subcontractors when necessary. We are about quality and integrity. Our family business and name is what we strive to honor. Bill has over 45 years of home building experience. He enjoys spending time with his family and is an avid outdoorsman.

We know every aspect of building personally and would like the opportunity to work with you.  We offer everything you need to build such as drafting, engineering, pricing and transportation.  We can reduce building costs by offering all these services to our customers.
