Arbor Construction at work on Lake Memphremagog, Que, Canada

Simple. Intelligent. Unique. 


Direct communication with clients and people. Being punctual, and organized. Accurate with time and financial budgets. A tidy and structured working environment. We keep things simple, so your experience with us can be easy.


Our staff is considerate and detailed oriented. Our priority is to make sure you get the service and product you're looking for. From ways to make sure you get the best value out of the construction experience, to making sure we don't un-necessarily impact your surroundings, we will be working smarter rather than harder.


 Arbor will leave you feeling like an individual, receiving personalized service to fit  your needs.  Our goal is to inspire people to envision a space that is created specifically for the individuals who will occupy it. Whether it is a tiny tree house, a house remodel or a retail store we encourage dreams for any size project.


Our passion is helping people find a balance between creating a space that fits their needs and budget; while also taking the natural environment and limited global resources into consideration. We have set out to break the trend and help people realize that bigger isn't always better.


We specialize in carpentry, concrete and un-conventional building materials  (imagine finding useful materials out of things most people throw away). Metal stud framing and finish work with exotic hardwood to poured concrete fountains and countertops; we can build anything out of wood or concrete. We also have experience building with 'natural' building materials like bamboo, and cobb.  From tiny houses and garden structures, to large scale renovations and new construction, we will make sure to get it done.


Founded by Rhett Jacobi, Arbor Construction is a sole proprietorship company devoted to bringing renovations, new building projects, or design build concepts to fruition.  Licensed as a General Contractor in California we are able to handle all of your residential and commercial construction needs.

On a personal level, Rhett spent his childhood in the outdoors. Summers were spent doing un-supported, un-guided family concieved adventures that included bicycling over 2000 miles from Jackson Hole Wy, to Mexico; kayaking over 1000 miles through the Sea of Cortez, Mex; mountaineering in the US, Mexico, Europe and South America;  along with many other bike tours and long distance hiking trails. 


Having worked on construction projects in Mexico, El Salvador, Canada, Vermont, California, Nevada, Denmark, and Equador we are able to bring a global perspective to the table and maybe some ideas that the next local contractor hasn't seen before. 

Simple. Intelligent. Unique. 

Beautiful Lake Memphremagog- An inspiring moment.
