Our History: Rooted on a Farm


Wisconsin family farm

The Anchor story starts on the family farm where John, Barak and Tim first tackled building projects together. Later they would join a custom home builders' crew to pay for college.

Framing Crew

Working on that framing crew, they began to talk about how they would do things differently to improve the construction-client experience and ensure the highest quality standards on every job. 



Anchor Builders

The brothers’ vision took shape when they formed Anchor Builders in 2005. Since then, it has continued to improve with the latest project management systems, communication tools and best building practices.


Today, Anchor Builders is an award-winning design-build firm. Design-Build is the foundation of Anchor’s ability to conceptualize, design and deliver extraordinary custom home environments on time and at budget. By relying on its own staff to conceive and construct complex projects, Anchor assumes total responsibility and accountability for clear communication and reliable results.
