Jake Bruton is a builder and remodeler in Columbia Missouri. As the owner of Aarow Building for more than a decade Jake brings his education in art to energy efficient, durable, and architecturally significant homes. Growing up in a remodeling and repair business positioned him for success when building because of the vast amount of time fixing, repairing, and replacing the mistakes of previous methods of construction. Jake regularly writes for Fine Homebuilding, Journal of Light Construction, Pro Remodeler, and Pro Tradecraft. As a speaker he has presented at JLC Live, Fine Homebuilding Summit, JLC Deck and Remodeling, and EEBA. Jake is currently raising a family of three children with his wife in Columbia Missouri.
