About J&J Design Builders Inc. and John Schumm

John Schumm, founder of J & J Design Builders Inc., is a licensed state certified builder in the building industry since 1989. John says, “If you can dream it, I can design and build it” – and he does, helping dreams come true for new homeowners every day.


He started out as a drafts person with his own architectural design company and from there proceeded to obtain his general contractor license.  John custom builds everything from small starter or retirement homes with under 1,500 square feet living space to luxurious palatial homes costing $700,000 and more, and he treats each one as if it was his own home being built.  John really loves building horse barns and it shows, both in the quality of construction and the satisfaction of his customers (and the horses are pretty pleased too!).  He has built a good standing in the equine circuit. Whether it be show equestrians, pleasure riders, professional horse breeders or thoroughbred race horse trainers, when it comes to horse barns, John’s reputation precedes him here, in the heart of Florida’s horse country.John is also one of the preferred builders in a very nice subdivision in the city of Ocala known as Cala Hills for the section known as White Oaks Village.   It has its own community center with swimming pools, tennis, racquet ball courts, parks and nature preserve, and an on-site medical professional park. In addition to Ocala, White Oaks, and other areas of Marion County, John also builds in Citrus, Sumter, Lake, Alachua and Levy Counties, Florida.

You will find John on any given day in the field – working right along with his sub contractors and not sitting in an office giving orders.

He is what you would call a real hands-on builder. John is never too busy to sit down with his customers and offer his own special talents to help them design their own special home and has many great ideas.

John’s focus, talents and maturity have allowed him to accomplish so much since 1989 and become the experienced outstanding builder he is today and who is highly respected in the area.
