From the layout to the finishes, no detail was overlooked. Jeff has been fantastic to work with and has helped us complete minor changes to make the house best suit us. We are so happy with our home and JLD team!

We never dreamed that we would buy a new home, but from the second we made a phone call to Jeff, we felt that we had found a builder we could trust.  Throughout the process, Jeff engaged us in many decisions to make sure that we were happy.  He was always so thorough and took a lot of pride in his work, which gave us such confidence in the home that we were buying.  He made it fun and he also made it a smooth process, something we never expected when we though of building a new home. Jeff did an outstand job and we closed on our house the data promised.  I would recommend JLD Custom Homes to anyone looking to build.

When new construction attempts to replicate a specific period style, most end up with the feeling of an inferior prefabrication. We searched for months, well over a 150 homes, and the only one we really liked was a newly constructed craftsman style house. JLD Custom Homes had managed to successfully capture the original grace of the period. As luck would have it, Jeff was building the same model but in an even better location. He worked with us to add our own distinctive touches and upgrades. Even with frequent rain delays, the house was completed on schedule and the minimal punch list was knocked out in just a few days. Knowing what we know now, would we do it all again? Absolutely!

The overall quality of the construction is also very high. From the kitchen cabinets, to the stair spindles, including the fireplace mantle are all made of high quality wood and the staining was carefully done. The wood work (base boards, crown molding, doors, window sills, etc.) throughout the house is also first rate. The chandeliers, ceiling fans, faucets, granite countertops and appliances are refined without being flashy. The use of high technology, making the house a “Texas green built” certified, is also an enormous plus. Based on my previous experiences, the square-feet based gas heating and electricity cost of the house during the winter months is around 40% less, and the electricity cooling during the summer so far is about 30% less than the most efficient new house I have lived in. Your work, dedication, supervision, high quality and attention to detail sets your company apart from any other builder I know.

"JLD finished our home ahead of schedule and very quickly responded to any punch list items or warranty repairs.  We were very pleased with the commitment to resolve any issues.  We have enjoyed our JLD Custom home."

Olin and Shauna - Lakewood Heights

We wanted to take the time to extend our appreciation for building the home of our dreams.  At the beginning of our project, our friends thought we were crazy when we told them that we were tearing our old home down and rebuilding a new one on the same lot.  They shared stories about delays, budget overruns and nightmares with builders.  They told us to add months to the construction timeline. 

We can say that we didn’t experience anything like this.  Actually, it was the complete opposite.  From the planning stages, working with the city’s conservation district for plan approvals, to the construction phases, to completing our home early, you and Steve made this process seamless and stress free.  We are so happy with our new home!  We proudly show pictures of it to co-workers and friends.  They always ask “Who was your builder”.

“Jeff Dworkin exemplifies the standard any builder should strive to achieve.  He is honest and dependable, and his work reflects his attention to quality and satisfaction.  If building another house is in my future, I definitely plan to use Jeff again.”

Andrew M. - Little Forest Hills 

“After three years of renting in uptown, we started actively looking for a house, within our budget, in the downtown area.  After nearly a year of searching, we were close to accepting the fact that either we would have to move out to the suburbs or just have to “settle” for a mediocre house close to downtown.  Then we stumbled across and immediately fell in love with our home built by JLD Custom Homes.  We are right in the middle of the hustle and bustle that is inherent near downtowns.  Mainly, though, we just love our home!  The quality and finish-out is nothing less than spectacular!  Jeff did a wonderful job of paying attention to the details and we are reminded of this fact every time someone comes into our home.  “Man, who ever built this house did a great job,” “wow! I just love your house,” “the builder took a lot of pride in building this house” are some examples of what people say when they see our house."

Sunay and Nisha P. - M Streets

"I was a little hesitant to build a house from scratch.  I had heard all these horror stories.  But working with Jeff was not all like the stories.  Jeff was easy to communicate with, extremely responsive, flexible with his meeting times, and eager to make modifications to the home to fit my desires.  He cared that I loved my home and was willing to do whatever it took to get it perfect.”
