Since I was 4 yrs old, working in the garage with my grandpa making wooden toys, I knew I had a love for working with my hands and wanted to build cool stuff.

Growing up I designed and helped to build forts, skateboard ramps, treehouses, and other backyard projects with family and friends.

Right out of high school I started framing houses and had a blast! As I developed my skills, and after about 10 years of rough carpentry, I started to notice the finer details of different styles of trim and moldings, so I decided to get into interior remodeling and naturally gravitated towards the carpentry side of it. Several years later, I’ve found that designing and building custom fireplace surrounds, or unique architectural details is where my passion is, but any time I get to use power tools, and make fresh sawdust I’m in my element.

Some of the projects we get asked about most these days are custom shiplap accent walls with floating shelves or mudrooms.

Our Process

Our sales process might be a little different than you’re used to, but our past clients seem to like it and it helps to not only set expectations, but also helps to streamline the process.

Through our get an estimate form or book now link on our contact us page, we put you into our customer database. One of our team members will reach out to you to request any additional information we might need and/or pictures of your existing space and any inspirational photos you may have. This really helps our sales team “Do their homework” before having an over the phone consultation with you.

During your phone consultation, we determine your main motivation for completing the project, your desired start and completion dates, if we are the best fit for you, and what the approximate investment for your project could be. If you are comfortable with everything, we like to make sure everyone involved is on the same page and excited to move forward before moving to the next step.

Then, we determine if you’d like to setup a consultation where we do an onsite visit so you can pick our brains, see some samples, and draw up some design sketches, or if your project calls for a design retainer where we take you to some showrooms so you can see and feel some of the products we use and you can also get a 3d rendering of your design. 

Finally, if everyone is on board we then gather signatures    on the contract, collect a deposit, and schedule a start date. We also give you some material to go over that helps explain what the construction process looks like and anything you might want to prepare for prior to day one of the project. 



He and his team of workers finished the project a few days early and within our budget. We couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of their workmanship. Construction is sturdy and well-thought-out, and they paid attention to every detail. On top of that, we were impressed with Jake’s professionalism and tendency to go above and beyond. He accommodated any small requests we had with no problem. All of his team were friendly and respectful of our property, and we were impressed with how clean they left the site!


I highly recommend Jake and JSM Custom Contracting. Jake gave us a detailed estimate for framing our basement, had good recommendations on how to tweak the layout and worked hard to meet our schedule. Other contractors have commented on the quality of his work and attention to detail.


Jake was great to work with, showed up on time and did what he said he was going to do. Great experience overall.
