Steve James & Sons – a locally owned family business that has the customers best interest in mind. That was the idea that motivated Jamie Prest and Steve Hunt to start their own business when they noticed how hard it was to find a good contractor that will show up, and finish the project on time and on budget.  With over 20 years combined experience building log homes and home renovations Steve and James decided to band together and offer a better customer experience, one with upfront communication, real timelines and budgets that you can actually budget on. With quality craftsmanship and work they stand behind, home building and renovations can be an enjoyable experience.
