“Jason possesses a rare combination of attributes that afford him the simultaneous perspective of an architect, an engineer, and a builder. The end result is a unique, well thought out, elegant extension of our home that truly reflects our highest aspirations.” – Customer testimonial
Now with over 25 years’ experience building and renovating homes, Jason started his career working for other contractors. This was after four years of vocational training which, included furniture building and architectural drafting. As a framing carpenter for new home construction, Jason’s passion for learning allowed him quickly to jump ranks to foreman at only age 19. He later moved to a different company and found himself working alongside architects on historic restoration projects. It is here that he discovered a love and respect for the old homes and the materials and craftsmanship that went into them. His desire to work directly with clients, helping them achieve their home goals, led him to start J.P. Hoffman General Carpentry in 2004.
The company focused mostly on new home modular builds and other custom projects. After restoring his own 1882 farmhouse, Jason’s passion for conserving older homes grew, as did his interest in historic residential architecture. In both older and newer homes, it was obvious to homeowners that Jason had an eye for designing spaces. His thoroughness, immense knowledge of his craft and creative problem-solving abilities produced many design inquiries from homeowners. Clients hired Jason to draw plans for their kitchen and bathroom remodels, additions, as well as finished basements, porches, decks and more. This was rather than hiring third party designers who only created the plans and did not perform the work.
