We can add a garage onto your existing home, or we can build a detached garage.

"I’ve worked with Kent Nickell for about eighteen of the forty years that he’s been in business working as a general contractor. In that time we’ve developed a subdivision in Davis County and built many custom homes in Utah, Salt Lake and Davis counties. Kent is a master builder and master framer. He can read a plan and competently critique it with the architect, which allows us to solve problems before they happen. His knowledge and grasp of construction norms and viable alternatives consistently saves our customers money. He knows suppliers and sub-contractors in all of the trades and is well respected throughout the building industry. I’ve chosen to work with him because he’s honest, hard-working, knowledgeable, reliable and very capable. Together we have a reputation for getting the jobs done correctly, done well and completed in a timely manner. We do it all: new home construction; home additions; remodels; garages; commercial remodels."

"Kent with Kent Nickell Construction is amazing to work with. He is very approachable and eager to please his clients. We were always kept up to date on any changes or issues that arose and everything was handled smoothly and professionally. I felt as though only the best products and subcontractors were used to build us a quality home to our liking. I highly recommend Kent Nickell Construction to build your next home."

"Kent, from Kent Nickell Construction, has built two of my homes. At first, I was not sure what building a home involved and was a bit nervous. Kent calmed my fears and set to work to build a home just how my husband and I envisioned it. Kent talked to us about each step in the building process. We were able to pick out the items for our home that we were really interested in, such as cabinets, flooring, windows, carpet, and so much more. He told us ahead of time what our allowances were so we did not go off our budget. What really sold me on this builder was hearing what the inspector said on the final inspection. The inspector said that he couldn't believe what a good quality home ours was compared to some of the homes that were built by other builders around us. If I decide to build again, I definitely know who I am using."
