Owner Jerry Jackness founded this business in 1985. For 30 straight years, we’ve survived and thrived, in good economic times and in bad. There have been many contractors who have come and gone during that time.
We like to think the secret to our longevity is not really a secret at all: do the highest quality work and treat people fairly, and the recognition and referrals will come. That’s been a pretty good business plan for 30 years and counting!
Yes and no. We are generalists because we do everything. We do design, we build fully custom homes from the ground up, and we do complete remodeling projects. We also do unique projects. (For example we have designed and built wineries).
To do all those kind of things, you need to be a general expert in all things related to construction.
But we also have some special expertise. For one, we are very good at creating a custom design that is unique and creative. Frankly, most contractors are not very capable designers and we really stand out in this area.
Another big area of specialization is energy efficiency. We have earned several special certifications and have a deep knowledge in how best to design and implement energy efficient products.
