Someone said you should always get to know your builder. So here goes. My name is Jon Lewis and I was born in Little Rock, Arkansas. I was born into a fundamentalist family where my father was a preacher. I grew up humbly in a lower-middle-class family where my parents told me we were rich.... in love. In grade school, my father taught me entrepreneurship. My father would tell the elderly ladies at the church that I would mow their lawn for $5.00 on Thursday, Friday or Saturday. I saved all my money from mowing lawns and I was always proud to make a deposit in my passbook. Remember those?? In high school, I played football, basketball, and baseball and my mother was my biggest fan. I attended college at Harding University where I studied Accounting and played baseball. My father taught me independence, discipline, and community. I was introduced to new home construction in the summers of 1982 and 1983. I worked as an electrician's apprentice. He was a great mentor and believed integrity and fairness were top of the list of any business. I got married in 1987. I worked as an accountant and financial officer for 8 years. In 1995, I built my own house in Chenal Valley, Arkansas and in 1997 I went full time with home building. By 1999, I had completed 20 house projects and in the year 2000, I was selected as one of three Southern Living magazine's exclusive builders in Arkansas. In 2007, I was nominated to be the president of the Greater Little Rock Homebuilders Association. Homebuilding came second to only my three awesome boys. When the year 2012 came along, I was diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully it was treatable, though it did require surgery. Surgery did not go well and the doctor had to induce a coma for 16 days. This was very traumatic for my family. When I awoke from the coma, I had two of my building clients that were very supportive as I ran my business from a hospital bed!!! I was out of the hospital two weeks later and I was then back on the job site within 3-4 weeks. Because of cancer, I have had some health issues within the last 5 years. It slows me down, so I do not build 10 houses at a time anymore. What you get from me is one on one attention, and personal building experience. I am very thankful where I am in my life and for my 3 boys. I am a first-generation builder...so no safety net. So there ya go. I'm happy to answer any and all construction questions.
