Today, what we’re really able to do for people is to help them build smart, all while giving them the opportunity to fully explore all of their options… to really dig into the creative possibilities and have fun… and bring clarity to their desires. With a construction / renovation process grounded in transparency, you can build confidently, creatively, and cost-effectively. Ultimately, this enables homeowners to experience the pride and satisfaction that comes from knowing you’ve made your home truly your own. – Jeanevra “JC” Calhoun

Upon immersing herself into the construction business, the South Bay born-and-bred Jeanevra “JC” Calhoun was troubled by its one-size-fits-all mindset and by how unnecessarily complex it all was. She set about streamlining the process by designing a simpler path to custom construction while surrounding herself with the best in the business. Known to those closest to her as their MacGyver-on-call, the problem-solving Calhoun is equally at home on a construction site as she is selecting materials at a design studio. The maverick builder’s primary purpose is to demystify, simplify, and take the anxiety out of the custom construction process. To this end, she equips homeowners with the information, tools, and creative choices they need so they can more readily and reliably build the custom homes of their dreams. Marrying construction management efficiency with iconic design, her highly-vetted team builds the homes that celebrate a client’s vision and values… injecting inimitable style into the home they most want to wake up to, come home to, and, ultimately, the home that envelops and enthralls visitors, too.
