Thank you for considering James Michael Homes as your partner in building your new home. As my name may suggest, I am the Michael in James Michael Homes and am a director and the head of construction. As an engineer I have a passion for detail and building your home is no exception.

I am always driven to transform James’ design vision for your home into a reality. I do so by focusing on ensuring every aspect of your home is built to the highest standards. Together with my team of exceptional site supervisors and tradespeople, we plan each stage of the build and invite you along for the journey.

I welcome your input throughout. From ensuring the home structure is built to each and every specification, to the finishing of your home, ensuring your selections and interior design such as your kitchen, bathrooms, terrace and outdoor entertaining are all as you envisioned them to be. Please get in touch to discuss your home building ideas. James and I would be most happy to show you through some of our current projects.

After meeting with James and discussing our basic concept ideas for our new home we were completely put at ease and knew straight away we had found the right builder for us. James' knowledge, vision and ability with the positioning and layout allowed us to maximize the views and the energy efficiency of our home. From concept through to completion both James and Ben the building manager we're available at all times and slight changes we wanted to make through the process were never a problem. The build went smoothly with no delays and we couldn't be happier with the end result. We highly recommend James Michael Homes!Roxanne Rickett
James Michael Homes took the time to understand our needs in an approachable and communicative style to deliver a high quality extension at a reasonable price. James took the time to step us through the approval process and finesse our design to get great functionality for our money. Michael and the construction team were professional and meticulous during the construction phase and kept us well informed of the progress. Following completion, James and Michael have both regularly checked in to ensure that we’re satisfied with the end result and as the owners of the business it felt great that our build was in safe hands. We would not hesitate to recommend James Michael Homes for both smaller projects like ours as well as new homes. Mark Goudge
