Founded in 1956 by Arnold Jens Kirkegaard, AJK was established with a firm commitment to the highest quality workmanship and empowers clients with an unerring dedication to architectural details. Throughout its long history of building the best schools, churches, and related residential buildings, the firm established a brand reputation that still lasts. Working on a new project offers an exciting way for the well-known new Denver custom homebuilder to showcase their talents, and the company is proud to work closely with the homeowner in order to assure the results are in accordance with the AJK commitment to honor. The Kirkegaard name is widely known and respected for the quality of its work and the integrity of its word. Arnold Kirkegaard has passed that tradition through Bob Kirkegaard (son), now Scott Kirkegarrd (grandson), and Jon Crabtree (grandson-in-law).

“Jon and Scott are first class gentleman. Jon build our beautiful home some 14 years ago and we love as much now as we did then. The quality and design of the home make it timeless and relevant in our neighborhood. Jon and Scott know south Denver and know how to build a house that you will be proud to call home! They are responsive and simply great guys. If we build another home, they will build it!” Jim and Gwen Powers

We have a unique opportunity and perspective in working with AJ Kirkegaard. As Interior and Staging Designers, we work hand in hand with Jon and Scott. We see the true passion and respect given to each of their clients. They dedicate time, quality, and attention to detail to each project. They help clients feel at ease with the construction and design process and create dream homes. We see firsthand the pure joy they create in the lives of their clients.
From start to finish, building a new home with Scott & Jon was an amazing experience. They are reliable, honest, always on site and were available to us every step of the way. Their craftsmen ship & trades people are talented with outstanding service. They found a solution & had the resources to any issue we faced during construction & the finished product was more than we dreamed would be. Should we decide to build again, hands down, they would be the first call that we would make. While looking at homes in our area, you can easily tell the quality of a home built by AJK.
My wife and I wanted to build the house of our dreams - our "last house" until we get sent to an assisted living home. AJK was recommended to us by multiple friends and business sources. We contracted with them in 2015 - and I can only say that AJK and his team of tremendous subs truly built the house of our dreams. The attention to detail was impeccable; the quality of the materials - top notch; and most importantly - the subs he hired to put our dream home together were 1st class in every respect. He had a supervisor at our home for almost 2 years - making daily visits - to ensure the project was "on time" - "on budget" . When we requested changes - AJK would put together a change order - and would have everything in writing for us to consider. I have always been told that building a house can strain a marriage because of challenges. But whoever experienced that problem obviously didn't have AJK to build their home. Scott and his team were always checking in with us - asking if we wanted a different shade for the staining of the wood; a different pattern for the tile work in the bathrooms. And anytime an issue arose during construction, he or his supervisor was there to answer questions or fix the problem. My wife and I actually built a home in Richmond Va back in 1997 and we swore at that time - never again because of all the problems everyone hears about in building a home. I can only thank the people that convinced me to sign up with AJK. I recommend him without reservation.
We purchased our house new from Appalachian Construction/A.J. Kirkegaard Contractors 12 years ago. The primary reason that we bought this house over others, was that the quality of the construction and finishes that were so far superior to any of the other newly constructed homes in the area that were available. And after living in tour home for 12 years, we have never had any reason to change our high opinion on the quality of A.J Kirkegaard and Scott in particular. In addition, we have called Scott on many occasions to ask a question about how something in the house works, or who to contact to have some home project done. He has always been extremely honest, responsive, professional and helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending A. J. Kirkegaard Contractors for any home construction projects you may have.
