The Kruse Mission...

We strive to offer a true custom home building experience to our clients. While most builders disguise pre-fab homes as unique consumer experiences, we perfectly tailor your home to your needs and lifestyle.

From the initial floor plan exploration, to the flooring, the trim work, the cabinets built specifically to your needs, to the final finishes and amenities that speak to you and your family. We offer an unparalleled home buying experience whereby you develop the home of your dreams.

Each and every home is a labor of love with countless moving parts. While most mass-production builders can overlook the little things, Kruse Development takes pride in knowing every detail that goes into each and every home. We ensure a superior final product through meticulous planning and quality control efforts. My team and I work with one, sole goal: A quality product at a fair price.

Dan Kruse, Founder

Dan is a native of the Des Moines area. He’s spent his life here. This fact may seem insignificant in terms of higher a custom home builder, but, in the end, it means everything. Dan has an undeniable passion for the streets in which he lives and the homes that lay upon them. To Dan, home building is more than just a job, it’s about putting families in beautiful spaces they’ve dream of all their lives, it’s about security, and it’s about creating smiles.

Dan could prop up his list of accomplishments and homes he’s built in the past, but he’s not that type. There’s something that makes him much prouder, and that’s his accolades. Among them, you’ll find no shortage of adjectives. Honest, friendly, driven, and creative. Simply put, every trait you wish you could find in a custom home builder.
