J.R. Blake Custom Builder, Inc.

More than 40 years of know-how
I started building custom homes in the Rehoboth Beach area in 1995 after investing 20 years working in the trades. I keep up with the current trends and building codes, but I know there is no new product or construction method that can replace quality design and pure craftsmanship. There are smarter ways of working, and then there are shortcuts. I don’t take shortcuts; I stand behind everything I build because I build it to withstand the test of time.

Why I build and what I build
It is great to hear my clients’ excitement grow as their projects emerge off the pages of the plan documents into their full-size three-dimensional dream homes. But, what I really love is the phone call or letter that comes a few months, or even a year after I’ve turned over the keys and they’ve settled into their space. When they tell me how much they enjoy living in the home and how it fits their needs, I know I’ve delivered. That is why I build and what I build—well designed and solidly constructed living spaces that look great and work even better.

Let’s talk about your ideas
My approach to every project starts with a conversation about what you want and need. I can work with your plans and architect, or we can design it together. If you would like to meet to talk about your ideas and see if I am the best builder for you, please give contact me.
