A Tradition of Craftmanship
Launched in 1975 by legendary Vineyard builder John G. Early, our company has grown from a small, family business to one of the Island’s most trusted and comprehensive contracting and building companies. Offering an array of construction services, we pride ourselves on creating lasting relationships with clients while maintaining a decades-long commitment to delivering peerless and customized results.
John G Early’s Vineyard legacy dates back to 1922, when the Early family began summering in West Tisbury. After making the Vineyard his home in the early seventies, John began working in construction, ultimately starting John G. Early Contractor & Builder Inc in 1975. Equally dedicated to serving his clients and his community, John served on the West Tisbury board of selectman for 30 years, as well as on the boards of several Island non-profits.
In 2013, Scott Stearns took over as owner, and the company has continued to uphold John’s unwavering commitment to the values of hard work, integrity, and superior craftsmanship.
By collaborating with renowned architects and designers on Martha’s Vineyard and nation-wide, we bring an innovative perspective to the construction process, while holding ourselves to exacting standards of efficiency and excellence. We ensure a seamless, transparent experience for our clients, and view each new project with thoughtfulness, professionalism and a passion for timeless Martha’s Vineyard homes.
Our Services include General Contracting, Construction Management, Owner’s Representation, Historical Restorations and Pre-Construction Services.
