What Our Clients Are Saying

The PJB experience was a joy from start to finish. The process and our home surpassed all of our expectations. They were a dream to work with.
The way you guided us through your building process was nothing short of fantastic.
When I checked PJB’s references they all told me to hire them immediately. Every reference was utterly pleased with the way PJB does business.

How much is my project going to cost?
There are many factors that lead to the final cost of your project. That’s why step 1 of the PJB Process is to “Determine the Fit.” This is where we’ll discuss the overall scope of your project and make sure we’re aligned with your expectations and your budget. Once we’ve determined your conceptual scope of work and budget is in line with what you want, then we’ll “Develop Your Proposal” and crunch the specific numbers to determine your price.
How does PJB price my project?
Your project price will be based on the scope of work determined by you and our team of professional trade partners. When you follow the PJB process, you’ll know exactly what your project will cost before we execute the construction contract.
What if I already have an architect & plans?
That’s great. Most of our clients come to us with an architect and plans already completed. We pride ourselves in coming alongside architects and owners to ensure the design intent and scope of work is achieved through our building process.
What if I don’t have any plans?
That’s not a problem. We will introduce you to the architects we regularly partner with and help you pick an architect that works best for you and your project.
Who will be managing my project?
Your project will have a designated Site Superintendent and Project Manager who oversees the day-to-day activities on your site. They will be your “Go-To” for everything related to the production of your project. Gordon and Peter Johnson will also be on your project for regular client meetings and to perform additional quality control walk-throughs.
How do you keep me updated throughout the construction process?
You will get your own Client Login to our project management platform where we will communicate with you throughout the project development and production phases. You’ll love our platform because it’s easy to use and super-convenient no matter where you are. After we develop your proposal (Step 2 in the PJB Process), our Project Coordinator will get you set up on the platform and show you how to use it.
What type of contract will work best for my project?
We only do Lump-Sum Contracts, which means you’ll know exactly what your project will cost before the construction work begins. If the scope of work doesn’t change, then neither will the price of your project. When changes do occur, whether to things outside of our control or based on changes you make, then we will price those changes and get your approval before installing the new scope of work.
I want to build a home in Charlottesville, but I don’t currently live in the area. Can you be my builder?
We only build in the Charlottesville area, but many of our clients live out-of-town, so the answer to your question is “YES”. We’ve been working with out-of-town clients for over a decade. We utilize virtual meetings, weekly update emails, and our project management platform to keep you up-to-date no matter if you’re across the country or the next town over.
