How did you get started in the industry?

I moved back to Grand Junction after graduating from high school in Thermopolis, Wyoming in 1982.

My dad was a project engineer with the Colorado Department of Highways, and he helped me obtain my first construction job in Debeque Canyon as an equipment operator. After two years on that job, my brother Scott and I started a construction business building homes in the Ridges. We built approximately 30 homes through the 1990s. During this time I also obtained my real estate license and have been at Hill & Homes LLC for 29 years. Also during that time, I was a project manager for Davidson Homes and built approximately 200 homes. After leaving Davidson Homes in 2008, I did a lot of remodels and flips. In 2015 I began building new homes again and developing a subdivision known as Pear Park North. This subdivision consisted of 68 lots. In the past 12 months we have built and sold 20 homes in this subdivision including the Parade of Homes model home.

Why choose a GJ Home Builders Home?

We are proud to offer a great home at a reasonable price at Pear Park North Subdivision. With homes priced from the 230’s we appeal to both entry level buyers, professionals, and retirees. Our homes offer 2×6 walls, high efficiency heating and cooling, LED lighting, designer cabinets with soft close hinges, granite or quartz counter-tops, and upgraded tile. Our exterior feature stone and stucco finishes. With my wife Marnie and mother in law Melinda helping with all selections, both interior and exterior we keep up with today’s latest trends in home building.

About the Parade of Homes…

We joined the Home Builders Association earlier this year, when we began selling homes at Pear Park North Subdivision. During the Home Tour in March we sold our first home. During the Parade of Homes last week, we sold our twentieth home including our Parade of Homes house and one other.

I am also very proud to mention that our Parade Home won eight awards incuding, Best Floor Plan, Best Landscaping, Best Kitchen, Best Interior Design, Best Use of Creativitiy and Innovations, Realtors Choice Award and Best Master Suite.

About the employees and subcontractors…

I have a crew of seven including Dan McKee, my project manager. Dan oversees my day to day operations at the job-site, at times having as many as 10 homes under construction at a time. I also have John Byrd as my foreman of the excavation and development crew. I also have Danny, Donny, JJ, Harold and Jason as equipment operators doing a variety of jobs during the house building and development period. I am proud to say I have an excellent crew.
