Our Company

We build lasting

Dan Johnson, owner of Johnson Construction, was born and raised in the Des Moines area and learned the value of hard work doing chores on the family farm at an early age.

Dan’s natural eye for superior construction helped him grow quickly from framing, to custom woodworking, to what Johnson Construction is today — a diversified general contractor with the ability to effectively and efficiently meet your new and renovation construction needs.

About Dan Johnson

Dan and his wife Danielle are big wrestling fans — as if the names of Johnson Construction floor plans don’t give that away — and they enjoyed years of watching sons Mitch and Jordan successfully compete at many levels. Now that their sons are grown & have families of their own, Dan and Danielle enjoy traveling when their schedules allow. They also love spending time with their grandchildren Ari (4), Joie (2) & Aidan (8 mo).

At Johnson Construction, we do not just build gorgeous homes; we build lasting relationships with our homeowners. We get to know you, your family and what your dreams are in your new home. We want to ensure that your homebuilding process is stress-free and a positive experience.


Dan has been in the business in central Iowa for over 28 years and has earned a reputation for delivering an excellent product. Our homeowners appreciate:

  • High-quality materials
  • Meticulous attention to detail
  • The ability to talk directly to the builder at any time throughout the process
  • Having someone to contact and who will help even after the keys are handed over
  • Accountability and integrity
