Our pledge to you

Since J.R. Builders started in the construction business, in 1984, we have offered long-lasting value, superior craftsmanship, and quality. Like you, we can't afford anything less! We are here to make sure the job gets done, and gets done right.

Ever since we started, we've aimed to be quality-minded, and fair. We pay very close attention to the work done by our crews and subcontractors.

It's not that all of our projects run without problems. It's not that we don't make mistakes from time to time. But, our focus is always trying to maintain quality and be fair with people.

We think you'll appreciate the difference.

The custom home process

Usually, we work from plans the client brings in. When we get to choose, we prefer plans from Design Basics. We like their designs, and we like the way they do plans.

If you're daydreaming about a new, custom home, the Design Basics website is a good place to spend some time.
