My husband and I relocated from Ohio to Elizabethton, TN. We choose Jeff Howell to custom build our home based on his sterling reputation. We could not be happier. Perhaps the most unique aspect of the process was the fact that we were in Ohio the first five months. That wasn't a problem for Jeff. He communicated with us constantly, sent us pictures, and updated us on every single detail. He is extremely knowledgeable, meticulous in his work, and his contractors and suppliers follow the same values. Our home is very well constructed, beautifully designed, and is everything we could ask for. Jeff is a true professional, kept us on budget, and met our deadline. I would recommend Jeff to everyone who is considering building a custom or spec home.
We built our custom home 4 years ago. Jeff did an incredible job. From start to finish everything went just as planned and our house turned out stunning. Our guests are amazed at the detailing and the way the house flows.
Jeff served as the contractor for a custom detached garage that we built several years ago. We had an excellent experience with him and his crews. In my experience, timeliness, honesty, flexibility, quality of work, good communication, and follow-through are the hardest things to find in a contractor and I am very thankful that Jeff exhibited all of these traits. He stands by his work and the work of his crews and when a glitch in a project occurs, which they can and will do on occasion, Jeff always took care of things in a professional way. I would certainly go to him again for another project in the future.

We would like to take this opportunity to share with you what a pleasure it was to work with Jeff Howell on the construction of our custom home. This was the first opportunity we had to build, and while we had heard almost nothing but horror stories of exceeding budgets, time frame of construction, contractor’s neglect of customer service etc., we had a completely different experience. Jeff was always there to offer great knowledge, advice and fresh new ideas to make our custom house become “our personal home”. He worked hand in hand with us and the sub contractors to ensure we were happy with the end result. We feel that if you choose to hire Jeff Howell as your contractor, you will be hiring someone you can trust and have confidence that he will build you a quality custom home!
Since 2007, I have chosen Jeff Howell Construction to manage building a ‘spec house’ and also to oversee a major home remodeling project. At every turn on both of these project, I depended on Jeff Howell to anticipate the challenges that such projects face; and to offer good options to resolve those challenges. While I trust Jeff’s excellent judgment, I always got the last word on the critical choices. Looking back on the projects now that they are done, I am very satisfied that I got what I wanted and the result is certainly worth what I paid. If you don’t want to worry about your construction project, do yourself a favor and choose Howell Construction.

It’s been over 2 years since we moved into our new home in Jonesborough, Tennessee and we are extremely pleased with our finished product. During the planning stages, Jeff Howell’s patience and personal attention allowed for us to develop our design to meet our specific needs. We also appreciated his meticulous attention to detail once the actual construction began. These factors allowed us to have confidence that the end product would meet our expectations. Particularly helpful from our point of view were the frequent and sometimes daily telephone conversations that kept us informed of everything that was happening at any given time. Since moving into our home, he has been very responsive to resolve issues that have occurred and have proven to stand behind his work. In closing, we want to extend our thanks for making our home building experience a pleasurable one and we would recommend Jeff Howell highly.
Recently Jeff Howell added a den and screened in deck to our home. It was performed in a very professional manner and was finished in less time than he had quoted. We are very pleased with the work he did and have enjoyed the addition immensely. I would recommend Jeff and his crew to anyone looking to add or build. A++ contractor!

We are so pleased with the basement finishing project that Jeff Howell oversaw. He was able to take our vision and make it workable, communicating with us constantly about obstacles and ideas for how to overcome them. He made sure the work was done in a timely manner and with quality. We went from an unfinished basement to one with a full bathroom, bedroom/living room, sitting area, kitchen, and storage, and our house’s appraised value went up significantly! We love using the new space created by Jeff and his team!
Jeff Howell is a great builder to build with and we are extremely pleased with his work. He pays attention to important details and does not cut corners like many builders often do. Our project was a custom design/build that was our first time building a home. Jeff created opportunities through the process to add energy efficiency and unique features to our home. The construction process was transparent and the attention to detail was outstanding.
When my husband and I decided to build our home, he knew exactly that he wanted Jeff Howell to build our house. I went with my husband’s decision and we went with Jeff as our builder.
We are so ecstatic that we went with Jeff Howell. The build went perfect. We could have not asked for a better contractor. Jeff called daily, making sure we knew exactly what was going on with our home. We were always informed, never in the dark. He was very knowledgeable of where to get ideas, materials, and such. We were amazed of how Jeff can come into a room and paint the picture of what you want.
We cannot express how very happy we are with our dream home. We absolutely love it… we don’t want to leave! I hope you will give Jeff Howell a chance to build your custom home. We’re glad we did, YOU will be too!!!
