Our Team

Founded by Stan Arnetveit in 1968, Design Specialty Builders has become known as the premier builder in the Green Lake area. Our team holds years of experience mastering the art of carpentry and is trained to build according to the highest standards in home building. In fact, many of our carpenters have been with us for over 25 years—a testament to the team-focused approach of our business.

Since 2017, Design Specialty Builders has been led by Erik Arnetveit. He learned the art of building high-quality homes at a young age as he spent summers on the job with his father, learning from the bottom up. Erik joined Design Specialty Builders full time in 1997 after earning a bachelor's degree in construction management and a minor in business from the University of Wisconsin-Stout and has since taken on ownership of the company. Erik works with Design Specialty Builder's clients from concept through completion–overseeing all aspects of each project and ensuring the highest standards of building are delivered to his clients.
