Company Background

Jones and Jones homeThe partners of Jones & Jones began building professionally in the Madison, Georgia market in the mid 1980’s. Our first project in the Lake Oconee market was completed in the late 1980’s, some 20 plus years ago. This makes us one of the most tenured builders in this market and one of the few remaining “original” builders.

For many of the earlier years, Bobby and Dan performed most of the tasks involved with the construction process from digging the foundation footings, through framing, plumbing and electrical, insulation, drywall, finish carpentry, painting, siding, roofing, etc. It is from these experiences that we are able to better manage our projects as we completely understand the work and the challenges faced by each trade. We have an acute grasp of the skill and attitude required for custom homebuilding and do not sacrifice quality for any reason.

 

We have never departed from our hands-on, old world craftsmanship and if you happen to visit a Jones & Jones job site, you just might see Bobby or Dan, tool in-hand, showing a subcontractor how they want something done. As our business has grown, we have assembled a team of subcontracting professionals that are uniquely capable of meeting our high standards of quality and customer satisfaction. We only employ sub-contractors that have the same attention to detail as our own and who have strong business ethics for honesty and fairness. We select all of our vendors, employees and materials based first on quality and then value.

 

Throughout the past years, Jones & Jones has had the privilege to work with many different talented architects and interior designers on a vast array of projects. We have built log homes, cabins, arts & crafts homes, cottages and mansions, with many varieties in between. With these relationships, Jones & Jones is able to provide professional design services based on the individual client’s needs and tastes and we also offer a limited scope of in-house design services beginning with site planning completely through construction. Our client list includes Fortune 500 executives, self-made businessmen, developers, commercial contractors, pilots, and pastors as a broad sampling.

 

Operating Fundamentals

We believe in honesty and integrity. We therefore bid projects on an expected outcome rather than on a low bid with unrealistic proposal that will later natural inflate and disappoint our customers.

 

We are our own superintendents – the client gets the benefit of our experience and knowledge on a daily basis and further benefits from direct communication to/from the job site.

 

The building process is a team project between architect, owner, builder and other professionals. All parties must be valued to yield the best result.

 

We strive to address opportunities and problems before they become change orders. We are not perfect although we strive to be – yet we are not afraid to admit our mistakes and take corrective actions.

We offer a level of quality & attention to detail that is unmatched in the Lake Oconee area. Our level of completeness after punch-out is well beyond that of our competition.

 

Depending on the client’s budget and desires, our experience allows us to provide considerable value engineering on methods and materials; however we would never jeopardize quality or design integrity.
