Who We Are

Our Philosophy

porch-1At JDS Builders, we believe that our projects go beyond just hammer and nails. We are in business to make a contribution to society. We do that through all of our interactions by helping people discover who they are and feel good about who they are.

Kitchen RemodelOur design and build process involves a real personal approach, engaging our clients in decision making in such a way that we work together and build consensus. We get to know our clients so that the end result will not only be something beautiful, but something they have contributed toward. Something they can feel good about because it is a reflection of their own ideas and taste.

We know that the space we live in plays a large role in our lives. And we will work to ensure that your space contributes positively to your experience every day.

About Jim

jim_portraitJim Stout is a multi-talented leader and builder. He started out in the construction industry in 1999, framing houses. But Jim also has a talent for music. He plays the piano and has led several church choirs in the area. He also sings with the Bel Canto Chorus.

His two passions began to overlap when his friends from music groups began asking if Jim could do projects around their houses. And so JDS builders began. It has grown from that stage to a full service construction and remodeling company, working on larger projects. And Jim’s reputation for quality work, attention to detail, and penchant for beauty and design continues to spread.

Additionally, Jim grew up on a farm in Germantown, Wisconsin, where he still lives, raising cows, chickens, pigs and other animals.
