White deck with view of a lakeOur History:

For over 30 years, James Rau and his talented staff of builders have been serving the West Michigan community. Since our conception in 1977, our company has grown tremendously. When James started off the company, he was completely on his own. Since he had nobody to help him at that time, the first homes he built were much smaller than what he typically builds today. They were mainly 1300-1400 square foot ranch-style homes. After two years on his own, James was joined by his brother, Mike, who is still with our company today. Over the years employees have come and gone, and home after home has been built. As time passed by, the homes James built changed with popular styles, and as he became more well-known the houses he built also grew in size. Today, no house is too big or detailed for James and his crew.

Where we build our homes:

We have worked throughout the West Michigan area. Though much of our recent work has been done in Walker and Sunlight around the corner of a houseHudsonville, through the years we have built homes in Rockford, Ionia, Bad Axe, Portland, Belmont, Jenison, Grandville, Byron Center, Holland, and Grand Rapids. We will take on work that is basically anywhere in the entire West Michigan area.

Who we are today:

Through the years, quite a history has developed. We know that our work will stand the test of time, and the positive feedback we get from our buyers is a firm ground for that knowledge. At James Rau Builder, we look forward to adding your next new home to this growing legacy. Whether you are looking for a grand luxiourious mansion or quaint country cottage, we are here to make your dreams into a solid reality. At James Rau Builder, we build homes, not houses.
