To maximize a smooth process when building with JW2, make sure to clearly communicate your budget, timeline, and design priorities early on.

Jon welcomes collaboration and will work diligently to bring your vision to life. Attend meetings about material selections and construction milestones to understand the progress and provide timely approvals.

He knows how to stretch a budget wisely to construct a durable and energy-efficient home.

Upgrades like triple-pane windows and closed-cell spray foam insulation may cost more initially but will pay off exponentially in utility bill savings over time.
