Amish Construction

I have been working on several construction projects around the Arbor House Inn that require help from local Amish craftsman. One of the Amish was telling me about the efforts of Amish house framing crews traveling to Joplin to help rebuild homes destroyed by the tornado.
Amish volunteer crews from Jamesport go to Joplin on a regular basis to help our neighbors in the south of Missouri. Amish framing crews can erect a building in one day if the materials are ready on site.
The Amish employ drivers with 15-passenger vans for transportation to and from construction sites. Jamesport crews are well known throughout the Kansas City Area and can be seen on construction sites all across the area. This winter I will be using Amish crews to build a room addition, pour concrete, and remodel the Arbor House. If you live in Jamesport you eventually find yourself hiring or working with Amish craftsmen. This is one of the things I love about Jamesport!


  1. Hi there! I live in Kansas City and I have heard great things about Amish construction crews. I am looking at building a room addition to our home. Thanks.

  2. WE are currently expanding the Inn buildings and have Amish doing all the work for us. All agreements are by handshake. How refreshing.

  3. Hey there! I'm at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 4! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the excellent work!
