Can I design my own home from the ground up?

Absolutely! One of the most satisfying aspects of designing with James Yeager Homebuilders is the sense of ownership you will have knowing that you designed your home the way you and your family wanted it. We will help you along the entire way, guiding you towards your dream home.

How many homes do you build each year?

We typically only build 3-4 homes a year. This ensures that we are able to dedicate 100% of our attention and time to building your dream home. Since we are so hands on, you will receive personalized attention to the things that matter throughout the designing and building phases of your new home.

Define "Custom"

If you have ever dreamed of a home that you and your family will someday live in, then we want to help you achieve it! When we say “custom” we mean it. When you build with us you have the opportunity to dictate things like; where you want the kitchen, how many garage bays, if you want a breakfast nook and more! Would you like the front door on the left side of the house vs. the right? No problem!
The possibilities are endless and rest solely on how involved you would like to be in the process. Jim and Julie Yeager are proud of the fact that they can offer a level of detail that most large scale builders cannot; that personal touch.

Do you use "Green" materials?

You bet! We take special pride in reducing our planet’s carbon footprint by using the latest Energy Saving, and environmentally safe products. We also go further by recycling or repurposing nearly all the waste that a new home produces like; leftover lumber, cardboard, fill dirt, plastics, aluminum, glass and electrical wire.

The building materials that we use:

  • Dow high density foam board

  • Dupont Tyvek housewrap

  • Mansfield Low flow toilets.

  • Moen Low flow balanced bath valves.

  • Rheem High efficiency hot water tanks.

  • Armstrong High efficiency furnaces.

  • Armstrong High efficiency air conditioners.

  • Owens Corning ceiling & wall insulation

  • Pella double pane windows w/ Low-E glass

  • Jeld-wen double pane windows and entrance doors w/ Low-E glass.

  • Energy Star appliances

  • Trusses VS. rafters when possible.

  • Recycled concrete stone aggregate.

  • When we clear a wooded lot for a new home, ALL tree products are harvested or recycled as mulch.

  • When possible we always use earth based clay tile floors over petroleum base vinyl flooring. We recommend Thomas Brick, Design surfaces and WCCV Flooring.

  • We are always interested in new or better ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact us to help us further improve.

Where do you build?

Right now, we only build in the greater North Eastern part of Ohio. Call us for more information and details and to see about our expanding efforts: 330-677-0107

How long will my house take to build?

Every design is different, but most home construction typically takes between 6-12 months to complete. This time frame can expand or contract based on a handful of factors. Call us or schedule a meeting with us to find out more. We would be happy to cover all of your questions that you may have!
