Jamie Harris was born and raised in Eustis, he developed a passion in the construction industry by buying and selling a home with the Eustis High School senior class project. After graduating from Eustis High School Jamie went on receive his Bachelor’s Degree from The Florida State University, he also earned his degree while working at  a local home improvement store in Tallahassee.  He went on to manage a nationally known Lumber Yard which help develop a strong knowledge of a building materials with a logistical approach to team leadership between retail customers, contractors, and a dedicated group of customer service driven employees.  After 11 years in the Lumber Retail & Management profession Jamie decided he ultimately wanted to become a builder.  He then moved his family from Ft Myers back to his hometown of Eustis.  Once he settled back in his hometown Jamie quickly become a Project Manager with another local builder.  This experience with taking multiple projects for over 7 years from the plan stage to completion help propel Jamie to become the dedicated contractor that he is today.  The experience with utilizing local sub-contractors ,  now for over 10 years back in the Lake County building market, has help create a focused group of professionals that will delivery a great quality home for every project.  From working on a Kitchen Renovation, to Home Additions, leading up to Multi-Million Dollar Custom Homes we have completed some of the finest quality homes in Lake County and are proud to continue that tradition with every project we are involved in.

He has worked on and run crews in every phase of new home construction, from laying foundations to framing structures and his specialty, cutting and installing custom trim carpentry. It’s second nature for Jim to consult with architects and interior designers to bring a cohesive vision to life and address small problems ahead-of-time so that they never exist.  Jim is dedicated to making sure that all sub-contractors are on time, focused with their task, and provide the best outcome with every project we complete.
