What is Meant By Design-Build?

A JWright Building Company home exterior.Simply put, design-build is a form of construction where one entity works under a single contract to provide the homeowner with all the necessary design and construction services to bring a new dream home to life. But isn’t that what all builders do? Not necessarily. Many builders use multiple entities in a process called design-build, which entails separate entities, separate contracts, and separate work performed by a wide array of individual craftsmen.


Vendor Feature: InSinkErator

InSinkEratorA key gathering place in the home, the kitchen is the designated spot to enjoy mouth-watering meals while catching up with loved ones. This gathering place within the home can also create a considerable amount of food waste. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the average U.S. household discards around 30 to 40% of all food purchased. To reduce waste within the home and promote cleanliness, J. Wright Building Company is honored to use  InSinkErator® products in our client’s custom homes.

Wright homebuyers find that a custom home is the best way to get what they want. Money is not the only consideration. Selecting a custom home means our homebuyers move into the home they love, saving time and expense.

Getting the Home of Your Dream on the First Try

Wood elements are a crucial design component of outdoor living spaces and home exteriors, and we’re proud to partner with one of the very best wood providers in the business.

After growing frustrated with the state of the wood industry, Thermory founders Marko and Meelis Kajandu began searching for a better solution. They had high expectations related to sustainability and quality that led them to thermal modification – the process of heating wood to make it more durable, stable, and resistant to weather and heat.
