With an exceptional crew of dedicated Vineyard craftsman, JGE offers a wide range of services including general contracting, construction management, owner’s representation, historical restorations and pre-construction services.
From luxury estates to historic Vineyard landmarks, JGE partners with clients, architects, designers and sub-contractors to deliver the gold standard in high quality results. We approach each project with honesty, professionalism and a commitment to open communication with our clients. As a result, we have established long-lasting relationships with clients and a portfolio of custom-built Vineyard homes that speaks for itself.
“They do some of the best work on Martha’s Vineyard.”
“The men on our job were, without exception, skilled professionals. They worked as a team, worked hard, exhibited taste and judgment, and are an unequalled resource.”
“Our house is a perfect collaboration between architect, builder, landscape designer and decorator. We wanted a home of distinguished design, fine materials and good taste—not a public statement but a statement to us and about us. Thanks to John, we succeeded beyond our expectations. After almost 25 years on the Vineyard, I didn’t know this quality of work was attainable here. Our experience with John was superb. He runs a professional business, staffed and financed to be able to tackle projects such as ours. We would do it again in a second.”
“Our project was a fundamental renovation of an old house—moving kitchen, staircase, bathrooms—within the enormous constraints of a grandfathered setting with non-conforming setbacks that could never have succeeded without input from both the architect and the builder. John knew the regulations and was with us every step of the way through the design and approval process. John is the best builder I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve worked with many in this country and abroad, both because of his own expertise and the fact that he has the best subs. I was out of the country, but trusted John’s crew to interpret part of my design, which required meticulous woodworking and a lot of minute decisions that had to be made by the carpenter. The result is miraculous.”
