For more than 16 years, people have been trusting JBS Builders, Minnesota’s lake home builder, with the four-season homes of their dreams.

Owning a lake home often means that space is at a premium due to lot size limitations, lakeshore levels and zoning issues. It’s important that you hire a lake home builder who has experience in dealing with these concerns. That being said, a lake home addition is a great way to make room for your family to stay in your home year-round. Lake home additions can also allow for aging-in-place (meaning, as you get older, your home adapts to your needs, enabling you to live independently longer), and can enhance an already spectacular view.
