Quality Craftsmanship Ingrained Into Every Build.

Our Company

The story of our evolution

The perfect home takes thoughtful planning, a time-tested process, and a true understanding of the people who will be living within those walls

This is a fact that Black Oak Builders owner Brian Russell knows well. In 2007, Brian started his business, Russell Remodeling, as a one-man remodeling operation in Lincoln, NE. He has since grown the scope of his work exponentially not only in size, but in service. While Russell Remodeling is still dedicated to custom remodeling jobs, Black Oak Builders now offers custom homes built from the ground up, and does so with the highest quality construction and customer service in the industry.

Another way we focus on quality is by utilizing only the best subcontractors in Lincoln. After 10 years of business in our area, the relationships we have built with these skilled workers help us ensure the quality of our products.

By focusing on your needs and providing open communication every step of the way, Black Oak Builders can turn that wood, concrete, and paint into the home you’ve been dreaming of.

Crafting the vision of your home into reality, providing reliable workmanship and genuine communication every step of the way.

Black Oak Builders strives to provide attentive and friendly customer service, keeping you involved in each step of the home building process. With reliability at the forefront of our business model, we guarantee that your project will begin on time, and will be finished to your satisfaction by the set completion date. Utilizing hard-working principles, a passion for the craft, and only the highest-quality products, Black Oak Builders promises that you will be thrilled with the final results of your home for years to come.
