We pride ourselves in doing things the right way. Quality materials are used throughout our homes. Our exterior material preferance is of the highest quality, structural integrity, and features low maintenance. These materials include brick, masonary stucco, stone, HardiePlank, Extira, and Azek. Most all of our homes feature the most up to date energy efficient qualities built to the highest International building code standards.
The Building ProcessBefore you begin thinking about grading, framing and floor plans, consider the definition of this simple verb: build. One of its primary meanings, as the Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary reminds us, is “to form or construct a plan, or system of thought.” If you have never built a new home before, the prospect of building one can seem daunting, and full of many unknowns. That’s why we think it’s helpful to remember that it is a true ‘process’. Jimmy Bryan Construction has been through this process countless times during the past 30 years and we know each step intimately. Take a moment to look them over. We think they’ll help you see that the big picture isn’t so big after all.
