About Hyalite Custom Building

JESSE BROWN, President

JESSE BROWN, President

Jesse has over 15 years experience in custom home building and remodeling. After graduating from Saint John’s University, Jesse moved west and started his career in the mountains of Southwest Montana.

“The most important and gratifying part of my job is creating trusting relationships with my clients. Through this trust we are able to deliver exactly what our clients want. I enjoy meeting new people, connecting with clients/friends to create their dream space with the warmth and comfort that only home can provide. Few things in life can beat the scent of fresh lumber and the sounds of construction.” - Jesse



A Master Carpenter who grew up in the Gallatin Valley and has worked in every construction field across the US and it’s territories. He possesses a dry sense of humor and a solution to almost anything. When not working Arlis spends his time supporting his daughter’s formidable softball game.



A Montana original, Garret grew up working construction and, after graduating from MSU, has made construction his profession. The most important things to Garret are family, skiing, and fishing.



A Master Carpenter who has been working with his hands his entire life from building to farming to welding to wrenching. Growing up all over Montana, Jeremy spends his free time cruising in sand dunes on his RZR.



The "front office" that keeps everything going.  From Wesleyan to Cornell, Sarah makes the business run.  She loves dogs, running, and cross country skiing.



Brought up with a strong and steady mid-western work ethic. A details guy that spends his free time adventuring in the mountains or going to see a good concert.

We hired hyalite custom building on the extensive remodel of our home. Jesse’s most admirable quality is his ability to communicate clearly and timely. He is a good listener and he is honest. Jesse was pleasant to work with and extremely thoughtful. We highly recommend him!
