Bruce Olson Construction, Inc.
6 Reviews
Bruce Olson Construction was formed in 1974 with Bruce working alongside his crew, building simple homes of quality for discerning clients. Over the years, his reputation grew as did his scope and scale of work. Bruce prefers to have his own tradesmen perform nearly all work on a project, avoiding the outside influence of scheduling conflicts and variances in product and quality inherent to the use of subcontractors. Most other builders only aspire to achieve the quality of his homes and the high standards he demands.

Bruce Olson is known for Old Tahoe style designs, hallmarked by an approachable feel and perception even to large structures, rustic native materials that bring texture depth and durability, repetition of detailing, prominent and well-proportioned fireplaces, deep roof overhangs, shed or gabled dormers, a nature color palette, integrated indoor/outdoor spaces, exposed detailed beams and rafters all blending the structure into its surroundings.
