"We never had the intention to build a home, we not did think we would be able to. But, we were discouraged by the inventory of homes for sale in our local market. The main reason for us was because we did not want a home with wood floors or oak mill work. The only way we could find our ideal home was to build. Jesse built us our dream home. He stood beside us and guided us through all decisions including the lot, floor plan design and our decision to use Geo-Thermal. He accompanied us for selections like tile and counter tops. He kept us on a strict budget and gave us many alternatives to our selections. Even after our home was finished he was always available for follow-up questions like suggestions for local contractors for gutters and landscaping. He has become a part of our family. Seriously, he's on our Christmas card list. We fall in love with our home over and over again. We would definitely build again and often comment how glad we are we took this approach."

"Jesse is my go to guy for projects from large to small. In this day and age it is very difficult to find someone you can trust and that will go the extra mile to make sure things are done the right way. Quality is always key to Jesse and he makes you feel you’re his most important client ever. I have had Jesse and Modern Construction build my Hot Tub house, shed, deck and fence projects. Most recently we chose Modern to build a new high tech, energy efficient home for my mother. I would recommend Jesse to any of my key contacts.”



"We chose Modern Construction for a few primary reasons: innovation, quality, and value.  Because we have a child with special needs, our house required additional structural considerations in order to accommodate our design.  Jesse and his team were happy to take on the challenge.  In the end we are very pleased with our decision to build with Modern Construction.  Jesse is honest, trustworthy, and fair which go a long way throughout the building process."

"We found this amazing empty lot.  We had heard of Jesse Hartung and Modern Construction though a friend and hoped that he could help us secure the lot and build our dream home.  The lot was extremely difficult to develop and build on - but Jesse stuck to his word and worked through even the most difficult issues.  Ethical and honest are two words that I would describe Jesse and his work"

“Jesse and his crew were great to work with. They provided top quality work at an affordable price. He was upfront with the prices and items that were his “standard” were much higher quality than other builders’ upgrades. He uses the latest technologies and is always looking for ways to improve energy efficiency in houses.”

Jesse and Modern Construction have been great to work with!!

The attention to detail and follow-up to make sure everything is done to our satisfaction has been excellent. I would highly recommend them to family and friends." - MARILYN
