   Adding to his overall expertise in the field, John has taken several land parcels from raw ground to completed subdivisions by installing the entire infrastructure of water, sewer and roads. Then, he continued to build custom and spec homes for a completed package.


   Swinson Contractors will carry you through every step of the construction process. This includes the preliminary design of your home, the selection of materials and colors, obtaining all permits and inspections and the final completion of your home. Preliminary estimates and specifications are given in the beginning allowing you to move through the process completely informed.

We will be happy to build for a firm contract fee, or on a
time and material basis, on your lot or ours. Buyers are
allowed to provide their own “sweat equity” for any non-
structural portion of the construction such as landscaping,
wallpaper, personal stereo wiring, etc.


   Building your own home? John Swinson will be happy
to provide consultation services on all aspects of your
construction. He can guide you through the construction
process, assist with permits and inspections, suggest
subcontractors with proven work records and warranties,
even preferred lenders or material suppliers.
Estimates, too. Whatever you need
to move forward on your own.
