As a cabinet & trim guy first, Jerod's woodwork is the best I've seen.

It's so tight there are no seams. 

If it's not perfect, he tears it out and does it again.

Martin Family

Jerod is forthright, transparent, and honest in the building process with a detailed notebook of expenditures.

Kerri Shields, Realtor

Jerod has built two homes for us and will soon build our third.  He is the very best in high quality construction.

Trantham Family

Jerod's homes are unique, simple and comfortable to live in.

Mostly, he is a delight to work with, easy going and fun.
