Meet Our Team
Brothers Eric and Joel Lakeman obtained their foundation in the residential construction industry in Omaha and the surrounding communities working as framers in the early 1990s. With a deep appreciation of genuine quality homebuilding, L & L Custom Builders was established in the spring of 1998. L & L’s approach to homebuilding is a unique one; develop a relationship with each client, new home build and remodel alike, in order to design and construct a home or remodel specifically tailored to that client and their style of living.
“Honesty. It’s the trait our business was founded upon, and it’s the characteristic that has afforded our clients the trust and knowledge that their best interests are the highest priority when they select L & L Custom Builders. Whether we’re discussing the budget of your new home build or the materials best suited to your remodel, you’ll find honesty and integrity interwoven with every response and recommendation. At the end of the day, it is my goal for you to agree without hesitation that L & L Custom Builders has crafted the best quality product of which you can be proud and enjoy for decades, and within your anticipated budget.”
“Some people use the word ‘perfectionist’, but I prefer ‘precise’ and ‘detailed’. It’s how I view my role on L & L’s team, as I manage and coordinate the work of various craftsmen throughout the construction process. My more than two decades experience as a residential construction framer has provided me with a deep knowledge of all aspects of the home building process, and a vast understanding of how the initial phases of construction, those that aren’t visible after the drywall is installed, have a long-lasting impact on the true quality of your home. You can be assured only the highest caliber work is acceptable for your new home; you’ll have an owner of the company involved in daily oversight to ensure the results not only exceed the pristine standards of L & L Custom Builders, but they meet my ‘perfectionist’ requirements as well.”
Plan Designer/Project Manager
“Uniquely custom, design-build. In our 20 years as a premier homebuilder in Omaha and the surrounding areas, we’ve never built the same home twice. Does this make my job as a home plan designer more challenging? Yes, but I thrive on a good challenge.
When you decide that L & L Custom Builders is the company to partner with to construct your dream home or remodel, you’re selecting a full-service homebuilder. We will work hand-in-hand from the initial design phase as we plan and discuss every inch of your project. My comprehensive knowledge of your new home in the planning stage comes full circle as I guide the subcontractors through the final stages of the construction of your new home. In addition, I’ll provide you with a cost analysis each month that ties every step of construction to the initial bid, and a forecast that takes your project through to completion. If you are seeking a homebuilder to develop a home plan that fits you like a glove, and turn that plan into reality with the utmost professionalism, communication, and quality, L & L Custom Builders is the homebuilder for you!”
Even though we were living out of state at the beginning of our building process, L & L Custom Builders made building our home a seamless project from beginning to end. Personalized, prompt, efficient attention was given to every detail, and the project was completed on time within the proposed budget. We could not have been more pleased with the building process, and we feel, the exceptional end result; our beautiful, well-constructed, energy efficient home.
