Builder's Story

Jeffrey Hall grew up in a suburban neighborhood in Westchester County, New York, approximately 50 miles north of New York City.  Excelling in art from a young age, Jeff went on in his teenage years to generate spontaneous designs and construction projects of all sorts.  One of his largest projects was the creation of two large half-pipe skateboard ramps that he used to develop his talents, express himself creatively, and as a gathering place.  This is still Jeff's focus today: using his love of design and his artistic talents to create beautiful homes for his clients and build a strong community.

He began his career in the building industry in 1993, when he graduated from Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island, with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology, a Concentration in Construction Science, and a Minor in Business.  Upon graduating, Jeff immediately accepted a job with Pulte Homes Corporation in Fairfax, Virginia.  With Pulte, he was exposed to a diverse range of building styles, including single family homes, multiple family homes, townhouses, and condominiums, and worked throughout Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Prince William County, and the City of Alexandria.  Over his 6½ year career with Pulte as a Superintendent and Project Manager, Jeff managed the construction of 223 homes, and was duly honored with awards of "Superintendent of the Year" and "Employee of the Year."

In 1999, Jeff started his own home building company, J. Hall Homes, Inc.  He opened his business in Fredericksburg, Virginia, a halfway point between Washington, DC and Richmond to offer his clients homes in an area that was still affordable, commutable, and had a promise for growth.  He went to work designing his own line of homes and began construction with a focus on quality and craftsmanship.  Jeff entered the market with a bang, winning an unprecedented "Best in Show" Realtor's Choice and People's Choice Awards for four years in a row in the Fredericksburg Area Builders Association Showcase of Excellence.  Jeff quickly acquired a reputation for smart and striking designs and quality construction techniques.  He began to attract the attention of clientele at all levels.  Over the past 9 years, he has built approximately 150 homes ranging in price from $200,000 to over $1,000,0000.  He builds from his own plans as well as plans from his clients' architects.  He is one of Fredericksburg's preeminent builders, and is known for his solid reputation both personally and professionally. 

In 2006, Jeff expanded his portfolio to include high performance homes, which he designed and built to meet the requirements of the ENERGY STAR FOR HOMES program.  J. Hall Homes was the first builder to bring these homes to market in the Fredericksburg Area.  In 2007, he coupled this program with the green building program EARTHCRAFT HOUSE in support of environmental sustainability. 

In 2010, Jeff pushed the innovative envelope again and design/built the area's first certified Net-Zero energy home in king George, VA, an outstanding and recognized project that continues to inspire Jeff today.

Jeff was honored in early 2011 by the Fredericksburg Area Builders Association with the 2010 Builder of the Year Award.

Jeff has the expertise and demonstrated experience not only to create healthy, energy efficient green homes, but to do it cost effectively.  Jeff is continuing his drive for incorporating cutting edge technology by incorporating geothermal, solar, and wind technology into the residential market. 

A home is probably the biggest investment most of us will make in our lifetimes.  Our home is part of our livelihood, where we raise our families and nurture our persons.

"A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams"


We are not a production builder.  Our homes vary as much as our clients.  We believe our clients should be involved in every aspect of the building experience, from carefully selecting their land, designing their home, choosing interior components, and understanding the construction of their home and how its systems work.  We offer our clients a personalized building experience.
