Durable. Beautiful. Efficient.

At Aarow Building we are committed to being the best custom home builder in Columbia. Through our focus on Passive House construction over the past few years we have emerged as a regional leader in high performance green building, bringing transformational energy performance and quality assured durability to our green projects. Even as our work transforms the way we approach “conventional” projects, we remain rooted in the craft-based remodeling and new building that we started with 35 years ago.

A company of carpenters, we construct buildings that sustain and delight by empowering employees, harnessing 21st century building science, and advancing the traditions of craftsmanship.

Smart Building

From initial concept and design of your custom energy efficient home to the construction of high-performance wall assemblies for a cutting-edge green building, our carpenters’ zeal for precision allows the shared vision of client and architect to be fully realized and well built.

The owner, Jake Bruton, was great to work with. He brought a designer’s eye and considerable hands-on experience to the work.  I learned to trust his recommendations. He helped me see what was possible and I’m absolutely delighted with the result. Everything was done right.  He immediately addressed all those little things remaining after a remodeling job. He clearly has a high standard for the quality of the work.

We have already engaged Aarow Building to do another project for us. Once again, we are listening to Jake Bruton’s recommendations about how the project should be designed and executed. We are optimistic about the result.
