If you want a green builder, Jim Demos is a wonderful choice.   Jim is well aware of what makes a healthy built home and keeps up to date with the various elements of building green.   Jim also has a keen eye for what makes good design sense and works well both with the owners and the architect.   In a word, Jim is not only easy to work with and a good communicator, but also knows when to call in experts when he needs help.  

Jim is open to different ideas and strives for a high degree of professionalism.   He is a perfectionist and has a desire to continue to improve.   He strives to select the best trades people and relies upon them to do their best work.

We needed someone to build a custom home that would meet some very stringent zoning restrictions. We were able to work with Jim in a way that allowed us to meet the city's strict requirements and still build what we hoped for. Jim also introduced us to some of the newest energy-efficient building technologies available. The result is a home that is snug, green and attractive.

Fairview, NC

We purchased our home from Jim Demos in May of 2006. It's an elegant yellow place set into a ridge in Fairview. Jim was careful to site the home with spectacular, complementary views: in the morning we watch the sun rise over rolling valley meadows, then spend our afternoon and evening watching the changing light on Flattop mountain to the north. Even with the view, the surrounding tall trees, lush laurel and rhododendrons give us a real sense of quiet and privacy.

It was love at first sight when we walked through the front door. Gleaming hardwood floors, beautifully finished. High cathedral ceilings. A broad balcony on the second floor looks down on a stone fireplace and plenty of windows. The walls of every room are painted in different pastel colors, striking yet tasteful--not the usual tract-home off-white. Everywhere, fit and finish are exceptional.

We spent the first month looking for problems, trying to be hard-nosed buyers from the big city. We found only a scratch on the floor. Jim brought a crew out immediately. When we asked for a mailbox, Jim spent the better part of a Saturday putting it in himself. That experience was typical. Our most trivial questions--about drainage, about water pressure, about air circulation--occasion a quick response, and bring him to our door. He never seems to be in a hurry, and always ignores the constant buzzing of his cell-phone.

We couldn't be happier: with the place, with our home, or with Jim's continuing attention. Should we ever decide to build another house, Jim would be our first--and last--choice.

Jim, We just wanted to thank you for the gifts of wine and flowers but, more importantly, to thank you for your time and genuine concern for us and our new home! You can't imagine how overwhelmed we were with appreciation and admiration--your time for the "introduction" to our house--the organized, written information--the calls to the painter, plumber, etc.--your willingness to meet the shower door folks for us--wow!

We had a great [first] week in our new home and look forward to years and years of happiness there. You've created a beautiful place for us.

Thanks, again, for all you have done!

The word remodel usually conjures up images of total chaos and havoc, especially when the homeowners decide to live in the house during the process. I am pleased to say that in our case, the planning, communication and process we had with our General Contractor, Jim Demos, enabled us to enjoy the experience. During our extensive 6 month remodel, Jim's attention to detail helped insure us all was going according to plan. We were pleased with the quality of subcontractors; our house was treated as our home, with respect for our daily routine. Workers were polite and thoughtful of both us and our neighbors. The outcome of our remodel has surpassed our expectations! Not only would we use Jim on a future project, I can highly recommend him to anyone contemplating either an involved remodel or a new home.
