Jim Morrison exceeded all expectations and timelines on our 5,000 sq ft custom home in Squaw Valley. Along with taking great pride in his work and maintaining a professional demeanor, Jim has a great personality and keeps a respectful, talented crew on his jobs. Jim's incredible attention to detail and crafts-manship is very apparent in the house, and it was a pleasure to work with him to make the detailed color and finished fixtures decisions with his input. We wouldn't hesitate to use him again and frequently recommend him to others.

After touring our first JMC home we knew instantly that JMC was going to build our dream house in Martis Camp. We were awed by the quality of the materials and the richness of the details. It was obvious that Jim builds an extraordinary home with a passion for perfection. It was with great pleasure that Jim accepted our project and we are now living in our “modern mountain farmhouse,” thanks to Jim and his team. The quality and craftsmanship is astonishing and I feel lucky to be living in a JMC built home.

Jim Morrison built our home as a speculative project for Arne Erickson. Gail and I walked through it shortly after it was completed. We loved the design and finishes. We had designed 2 other homes in Lahontan and never built them. We loved this home that Jim built…for us. 22 days after that first walk through, we owned “our” house. Jim and his company have treated us like we were his customers. Perhaps it is because he thinks of this house as “his” house that we are living in. Jim Morrison Construction is both responsive and responsible. They deliver high quality, good pricing and timely construction.

Jim has been terrific. He has a can-do attitude that is both creative and realistic. His dedication to us as clients has been truly exceptional in terms of staying with a task until it’s completed, responding to our requests, explaining technical characteristics of our home, explaining design alternatives and caring about our concerns. All of that is above and beyond the fact that he built a super high quality house with great features and a floor plan that combines great utility with a warmth and friendliness that our family loved over the holidays when all three of our sons came to visit. We have had a few large parties already and everyone at the parties comments on how great the first floor works for entertaining and how well everything flows. In addition to Jim, his company has talented professionals who have done a terrific job of implementing our design changes and making everything work at a top notch level.

We love our Lahontan home—finished in September 2007—on time and on budget. Having completed a significant remodel to our home in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2006 with major delays, cost overruns and countless associated frustrations, we approached the Lahontan project with many concerns. From the first time we met Jim we knew the Lahontan experience would be different, and we were right. Jim has a passion for his work combined with a flair for design and attention to detail that made the construction of our Lahontan home a pleasurable experience in all respects. The Jim Morrison Construction crew and subcontractors shared the same pride and devotion to excellence that Jim brought to our project. The end result was a home that is not only beautiful but eminently livable as well.

Jim Morrison exceeded my expectations in every facet of our project. His budgeting was accurate, he worked very proactively with the architect, he beat schedule, and most importantly his quality was superb. Jim also provided excellent guidance with regards to design solutions and finish selections. Also, his crews were very particular about the smallest of details. I highly endorse Jim Morrison for any luxury home project.

— Arne Ericson

Jim Morrison built a “cabin” for us at Martis Camp in 2009. Three phrases come to mind when thinking about the construction process with Jim Morrison Construction: Quality Product, Creativity and Guidance, Time and Cost Efficient. And very important is Jim, the individual, as the General Contractor. We found him to be professional, responsive to our questions and requests, self motivated, fair, and reputable. We could not be more pleased with the process and finished product.

— Doug & Marilee Tinker

Working with Jim has been a breath of fresh air. In addition to having a great sense of humor, he is highly motivated, intelligent, professional, as well as responsive. Having him on the team makes the process go smooth. He brings experience, value and insight to each project. I enjoy witnessing his success.

— Kurt Reinkens

Not only did Jim work well with our architect, but he was very accommodating to our San Francisco based interior design team. He tuned into their vision for the house and was a great interface between all of the parties. He also brings his own talented eye to the project. Frequently being on site, he sees and anticipates unforeseen issues. He helped to avert things before they became costly problems.

— John & Glennis Jones

Over the past few years Jim Morrison has done a superb job delivering great homes, large and small, to our Martis Camp families. Jim is a contractor that you can truly “collaborate” with in creating your family's Martis Camp living experience. We have the highest confidence in Jim's ability to bring virtually any project in “on budget”, “on time” and, “on quality”.

— Jim Bartlett & Nick Hackstock

We added Jim to our design team very early in the design process and he started to contribute immediately. Jim has a quick eye to visualize even a preliminary design and make helpful comments that translate into an improved outcome. Jim offered opportunities for value engineering choices. He completed our home in less than a year, three months earlier than our architect had estimated. Our home evidences excellent and careful workmanship resulting in a quality product at an affordable price. Jim and his crew take pride in what they build and they stand behind it after they finish.

— David Haig

I have worked with some of the best contractors in the country, who build the finest, for some of the most demanding clients there are, Jim Morrison is in that category. He is surrounded with a team of expert craftsmen and has the support necessary to execute residential architecture at its highest level.

— John E. Sather, AIA, AICP

Our Martis home is the fourth custom home that Shannon and I have had built and it was by far and away tour best experience. Jim and our project team led by Eben Shreiber were absolutely fantastic. Jim worked closely with our architect, John Sather, during the design process, and gave us guidance on cost, which was very helpful and accurate. He communicated regularly and clearly during the construction process, and we experienced no surprises. In summary, he built our home on-time and on-budget and the craftsmanship was first-rate. He and his team all possess can-do attitudes and were all a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend a general contractor more highly than Jim Morrison.

— Dennis Wong

Jim was truly an asset to our project. We have built and remodeled homes before but working with Jim brought a new dimension to the process. While he added value with his creativity, perhaps his biggest attribute was his ability to organize his subs in a way that we had never seen before - a mutual respect that ensured the most time-efficient build possible. Maybe most importantly, we were able to finish our project (a 4000sf Lahontan home) within 1 year and ON BUDGET! Jim, and his crew, made building our home fun, profitable, and an experience we would repeat without question. Thanks Jim!

— Larry & Cathy Stewart

Working with Jim Morrison on our cabin at Martis camp has been a wonderful and flawless experience. Our house was delivered ahead of time, and on budget. We are planning to build another home in Martis and would not even think about doing it without Jim and his crew.

Jim Morrison built our home in Painted Rock in Squaw Valley. He did a spectacular job in building the house as well as in suggesting various design changes. Since we live in Chicago, we relied on Jim to make numerous decisions based on our discussions and phone calls, we always trusted his judgment and we were without exception pleased with the outcomes. The quality of the construction was top notch, and the house was completed within the time frame and costs that we had agreed upon. We found Jim to be a pleasure to work with. He was accessible and reliable, and he built a terrific home for us. When friends visit from various parts of the country, they marvel at the beauty of all the features of the house – the words awesome, gorgeous and breathtaking are often heard. We love the house and have great respect for Jim and his skills and capabilities as a builder and general contractor.
