We spoke with many lake residents about their recent renovation experiences and met with several of the area builders. In the end, we chose Bruce Beckley Construction based on his finished work, which we toured, positive comments about Bruce by local suppliers and subcontractors, and his on-going relationships with people we know and trust.  


We were not disappointed. We are extremely happy with our partly new and partly renovated lake place--now approximately 3000 sq. ft. with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Bruce listened patiently, made suggestions which proved insightful, worked us through the variance hearing, kept to the construction schedule, tolerated a probably excessive amount of involvement by us, demonstrated attention to detail and craftsmanship, and kept us well-informed throughout the building process. Moreover, his crew was personable, good natured, hard working and skilled--even in the coldest of winter months. In the end, the dream became reality. Impressive.

Bruce Beckley and his crew deserve strong consideration for your next building or remodeling project, no matter how big or small. A true craftsman who takes great pride in his work, his integrity, and your satisfaction, I can not recommend him more highly. He built a fabulous screened-in building for us and converted attic space into a great man cave. Feel free to call us if you would like to talk about our experience with Bruce or see the work he did for us.

We hired Bruce Beckley Construction to remodel our cabin, he was very professional in all our dealings and his workmanship was outstanding. Bruce had a great vision for what we could do with the space and created a wonderful new home. We appreciated his willingness to share his ideas and expertise.  He kept open communication on our project and was realistic with timelines. It was a great experience and we would highly recommend Bruce Beckley Construction.

Bruce Beckley built our home on East Crooked Lake, north of Nevis, MN. He brought his strong craftsman and creative home building skills to our project. He listened closely to our wishlist and was very disciplined about our budget. Bruce also demonstrated the value of his years of experience in how he handled site challenges with our lot. He was a great project leader keeping all subcontractors on time and budget. To top if off, Bruce has a great sense for cool finishes that made our home fun  and uniquely ours. We achieved our dream home thanks to Bruce's skills, integrity and commitment.

We would highly recommend Bruce Beckley Construction to anyone planning on building a new home. Bruce worked with our sketches to design and build an 1800 sq.' house to attach to our existing cabin on Ten Mile Lake. Bruce had excellent ideas to make the construction fit our family needs. Bruce goes above and beyond to ensure he meets our objectives.

“We are so glad that we met Bruce Beckley. He built our lake home in 2006. We are most impressed with the quality of his work and his attention to detail. Bruce is able to take an idea and make it a reality and do so affordably. If we were to build again, we would start by hiring Bruce.”


John M. - Ten Mile Lake

We feel so fortunate that we happened to look at some cabins you had built as we searched for Ten Mile Lake property in the summer of 2008. We immediately loved your work and were impressed with your craftsmanship and attention to detail. So when we purchased our property, we knew we wanted you to build our cabin. It sounds crazy that we could buy lake property in September and have a beautiful custom home completed by the following July, especially since there was an old cabin to be removed from the lot, and it was one of the coldest winters in years, and we live 3 states away!  So many people warned us about how stressful this process would be, how all the decisions would make us crazy, and it would just be a long hard project. But we truly had peace of mind and enjoyed the entire process thanks to your leadership of a great team of craftsmen and subcontractors, your personal attention to every detail, your easy communication style and commitment to quality.  You stayed on schedule and never surprised us with expenses.  When you thought of possible modifications to the plans for a unique touch we could add along the way, you had a wonderful way of explaining your idea so we could envision the opportunity. If we didn’t like the idea, no problem at all.  And if we did, you were prompt getting an estimate for what additional costs would be so we could make our decision. The same was true for new ideas or changes we envisioned along the way. We have lived in several old homes, doing extensive restoration and many remodeling projects over the years. Our Ten Mile Lake cabin is the first home we’ve built from scratch. We trusted you completely with that process and never doubted your commitment and integrity. And you’ve stayed in touch over the years since completing our home, always willing to help with any touch up, modification or addition we might have needed. We are satisfied and thankful we chose you to build our home.


John & Diane P - Ten Mile Lake

When my husband and I decided to build a new garage, remodel, and put an addition on our cabin, we wanted a local contractor, and Bruce Beckley was highly recommended to us by a realtor in Hackensack. When we met with Bruce in early May 2016, we were immediately impressed by his down to earth style, and knew right away that we would be comfortable working with him. My husband is a carpenter by trade, and we were not sure what work we would do ourselves, and Bruce was very flexible as the projects evolved. He was also open minded and always willing to discuss various construction methods and ideas that my husband had in a positive and constructive manner. Bruce is honest and trustworthy, and was fully transparent with all the costs, so there were never any surprises. He was always prompt in getting back to us and answering our questions, and he genuinely wanted to ensure we were pleased with his work and the work of his crew. Bruce and his crew were also very accommodating  and always made sure to keep things cleaned up so that our cabin could remain functional for our family during the summer while the construction was taking place. He dedicated his crew to our projects and worked hard to achieve the goals we wanted to accomplish over the summer, and our entire experience was positive. It was a pleasure working with Bruce and we highly recommend him!
