Before we build, we listen.

Unlike some builders, we ask a lot of questions. We also listen. We truly hear you. We want to know your expectations and desires. After all, your home should reflect your vision, not ours. Each one of our homes is custom-built according to need. We want to know exactly how you plan to use the house so we can design accordingly. We want to know if you have kids? How about pets? Do you plan to entertain often? What rooms do you utilize most? Do you work out of your house? Is this the home you plan to spend the rest of your life? And so on.

Big picture focus, with attention to detail

Our personal touch sets us apart from other custom home builders. We have a hands-on approach and we’re committed to overseeing every aspect of your home – from the initial conception to the day you move in, and beyond. We are a service-oriented company, which means we are devoted to building homes that our customers can be proud of for years to come. In fact, a large part of the building experience comes after the home is complete. If you have any issues or problems once you move in, we will take care of it. We learned early on that customer satisfaction is the key to home building. And that is what motivates us each and every day.

Quality is made. Relationships are built. Trust is earned

We do not work off of volume at J. DuBonn Builders. We take one project at a time, and we work with customers who value exceptional quality and premium craftsmanship, at a reasonable price. It’s the only way we know how to do business.


The decision to build a home can be large and daunting. Our desire is to simplify these decisions for you and create an efficient, fun, creative, and stress-free environment that will enable you to build the home of your dreams.


Our design expertise allows us to take all your individual ideas and create this vision for you. With your ideas and our creative abilities, we are sure to create a truly beautiful home, a home that is uniquely yours!


We understand how important your home is to your loved ones. We realize that each family is unique, and that each living experience should be customized to your own individual tastes, preferences, and lifestyle.


Hear from Our Clients

Jean and I contracted with John DuBonn to build our new highly customized home in downtown Greenville in 2010. We purchased about 5,000 sf of unfinished space on the top two floors of a century old building on Main Street. John, working with an architect and designer, was able to transform the space into an upscale modern urban home.The attention to design and detail was important to transform the space the way we wanted. John accommodated the changes and upgrades that we requested during the construction period; and our 'punch list' after our move in was completed timely.Jean and I are pleased with the result and would recommend John for new home construction or remodeling.

"We want to thank you for making our dream of building a lake home come true. You have surpassed our expectations in the quality and workmanship of our new home and guided us through the entire building process with your open communication and design assistance. Your ability to clearly communicate with us is a great asset, one that most other custom home builders do not possess. If we build another custom home, it will definitely be with J. DuBonn Builders."

Scott & Anna S. - The Cliffs @ Keowee

Building a home with you has been more than a pleasure; it's been a fun adventure and the smoothest building process of the six we have done. Specifically; In every way you have been reliable, you do what you say you'll do. You have listened to us and been responsive, and your creativity has been an added value. John, your head is full of ideas, and we've been glad to take advantage of them. The financial piece has been one of the best surprises, we feel like you watched our cost as if it were your own. You shopped for cost but kept quality. The accounting has been perfect, both as to accuracy and form, and your projections have been excellent. Thanks so much for your help."
