Our History

In 1928, Karl Otte, Sr. began constructing homes in Northeast Nebraska and progressed into a commercial builder specializing in churches. In the late 1950s, three of Karl's sons, Karl, Kurt, and Paul, followed in the same steps as their father as they assumed control of the company and maintained Otte Construction's reputation for quality craftsmanship.


A third generation joined the company in 1994 to continue the family business as Karl, Kurt, and Paul neared retirement. Jeff Morlok purchased the company from his uncles and was joined by his cousin, Keith Moje, to help lead the company.


Keith became the owner of Otte Construction in April 2012. He is committed to preserving the excellent reputation synonymous with the Otte Construction name and is dedicated to the principles upon which Karl Sr. built the company: integrity, quality craftsmanship, and hard work.
