Custom Homes

A Passion for Place. A Focus on Details.

If you are considering building a custom home in Homer Alaska, we share your dream.

No matter where you are on your journey, Homer is a remarkable and supportive community. It's an amazing place to retire – or to raise a young family. It's quiet and beautiful, yet there are a ton of things to see and do, with renowned restaurants, art galleries, and culture.

When it comes to building your dream home, we can assist you at every stage of the journey, from initial inception to even helping you rent it out when you're not in town.

We are always delighted to meet with your architect on your building site and explore solutions to ensure construction compliments your property and fulfills your vision.

JB Homes can build just about any style of home.

  • Privacy and Respect. We put a lot of thought into the privacy of each guest home so all of our guests have a peaceful stay.
  • Summer landscape care. All of our properties have well manicured lawns.
