Kraus Design + Build
Building and Creating Lasting Value with Craftsmanship, Honesty, Integrity and Professionalism

Bob Kraus Builder

In 1981, Bob Kraus, a native of Oakland County, Michigan graduated from Michigan State University, East Lansing with a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management. Upon graduation, he started his professional career and gained practical knowledge of the building industry from the largest single-family building corporation in the United States. When the home building industry in the southern United States faced a slowing trend in 1987, Bob wisely returned to Michigan where he soon founded what is now considered one of the premier Design + Build home building companies.

Bob is a third-generation builder and has had his hands in the industry since childhood. The 
Kraus Company, established in 1930, more than 90 years ago in Detroit is where he spent many summers helping out in the family business. Bob chipped mortar from old bricks taken from old torn-down Detroit buildings. From chipping the mortar that came from demolished building bricks to custom building premier traditional style homes, Bob Kraus has established himself as a leader in the industry by "Setting The New Standard."

It takes the right people to do what they do best to build the reputation that Kraus Design + Build has had the good fortune of developing. Bob Kraus heads up the team. For over 30 years, exceptionally crafted homes throughout Oakland County have been the work of Kraus Design + Build. The company has played an important role in setting the highest standards for construction in leading residential developments due largely to Bob's commitment to quality, craftsmanship, strong organizational skills and a commitment to a Square Business approach to the industry, customers and trade partners.

The personal attention from Bob Kraus is the difference. Bob has been building for more than 30 years and brings all of his experience to you, helping you better realize your dream of a custom home.  Your custom home or Renovation is truly a reflection of your dreams and our determination to make them come true.
