About Us

The JFK Philosophy

We take great pride in our knowledge and expertise in understanding a space and how it can best suit your needs. To do that, we first listen to what’s important to you. We pay close attention to what you want from your new home – what moves you, what motivates you, and ultimately what you want your home to embody. Each client’s unique style and way of living drives the design, build, and finishing stages of the process, and that’s why we believe that one custom home fits one unique family.

At JFK, we seek to create a home that enhances the lifestyle of your family. The design and practicality are important elements, but it is our superior craftsmanship that ties these things together to create a home that will last a lifetime.

“After considering many home builders and obtaining references from clients as well as subcontractors, we selected Jeff Burg to build our home. We are extremely satisfied with Jeff and his work. His professionalism, knowledge, quality, and commitment are exceptional. He was involved in every phase of the project and continues to be available for help. Our total costs even came in under budget! I strongly endorse JKF Design Build.”

The JFK Difference

We build homes that make you feel. Feel comfortable, feel functional, feel grounded, feel at home. And what that means is up to you. Every design decision is based on your wants and needs for your family’s way of life.

As part of our design and build process, our experts are there with you in every decision to ensure quality, expertise, and guidance so you never feel overwhelmed or underinformed about any part of the process. We take pride in our clients making knowledgeable choices so that they feel that their home is uniquely theirs.

Not only do we build homes, we build relationships too. We have the opportunity to build a better future for our clients every day. The houses we build become homes of our clients and our circle of friends expands with each new home we build. The connection we create with our clients is one of the main reasons why we love what we do.
