Nile Ziemba

Nile Ziemba founded North River Builders over 20 years ago with a love of building, a passion for great design, and a deep commitment to excellence in craft… but that’s not all that drives him.

“There’s a lot of satisfaction that comes from building things well, but that’s only part of the picture”, he says. “Another main reason I got into this business was to improve the residential construction experience on the client side. Builders who focus on process know that open communication, methodical planning, and rigorous organization are just as important to a project’s success as an exceptional final product. It’s also what sets us apart”

Our Team

Our team members have extensive trade knowledge, a wide range of experience, and varied backgrounds and interests. We are well-versed in time-tested building techniques developed by generations of master carpenters. We continually build on that knowledge with research into the latest materials, products, and innovative building techniques.
