It’s All In The Details

Carefully Managed. Superbly Crafted.

At David James and Company we build true custom homes and complete simple to complex renovations to the highest standards. We only team up with talented and dedicated people: professionals who share our love for the craft and respect for you and your home. When working relationships are friendships it’s a good thing. When those friendships happen with our clients that’s a great thing.

Complex Renovations

From kitchens to garages, to room additions to a new home, whatever your need is, we can bring it to life. Some may see it as a challenge – we just see another vision accomplished.

Building Strategies that Respect the Environment

David James and Company has been practicing smart energy saving solutions in home construction since the company’s inception. David is a Certified Green Builder, and works hard to incorporate the latest energy saving technologies and efficient systems into each home that we create.

Our Philosophy


Your custom home, your way.

Every home we build is original and unique. We love what we do, and that energy and enthusiasm is evidenced in every home we create. Because we construct a limited number of homes and renovations each year, we ensure the highest level of service to our clients, since 1995.
