Our founder, John Schumm, has been in the construction industry since 1989 and is a licensed, state-certified builder. After working with his own architectural design company,
he obtained his general contractor's license.
John custom builds everything from small starter or retirement homes to luxurious
palatial homes valued at $700,000 and more. Each home is treated as if it was his own.
John also really enjoys building horse barns and other horse training facilities.
J & J Design Builders, Inc is one of the preferred builders in Cala Hills, a very nice subdivision of Ocala, as well as the exclusive White Oaks Village neighborhood within Cala Hills. Our team also builds in Citrus, Sumter, Lake, Alachua, and Levy counties, as well as other areas of Marion County.
John Schumm is a hands-on individual and can always be found working right alongside his team. When you hire him, you'll work with him regularly and get direct access to him as he makes your vision a reality.
At J & J Design Builders, Inc, we're always ready to build. In fact, we're the only builder in the area that will actually help you design your own custom plan for your new home.
You can also select from our many plans that are already available. If you want to modify any of our plans to more closely fit your needs, our team is more than happy to help you do so!
Since we have our own in-house drafting department, you won't have to hire an outside firm to handle plan designing and drafting. We'll start with your ideas, thoughts, sketches, and pictures before turning everything into a preliminary floor plan and elevation design. From there, you'll get a turn-key building price for the plans and features you'd like.
Let's get started while interest rates are low! You can build on your own land or in one of our communities.
