Build On Your Own Lot

“We shape our buildings; thereafter, they shape us.”
Winston Churchill

After 30 years in homebuilding, Greg Hawes fulfilled his life-long dream of
working with his daughters Katy and Victoria when we founded Jamestown Estate Homes in 2010.
Since then we have built over 40 custom homes ranging in price from $500,000 to over $4 million.

Jamestown Estate Homes builds homes that improve the lives of our homeowners by giving them positive energy every day. Our goal is to build elegant, yet comfortable homes that delight and inspire our homeowners.

We specialize in the Memorial Villages, Oak Forest, and the surrounding areas. We maintain an inventory of lots, homes available for purchase, and we build on clients’ lots.

Jamestown Estate Homes’ Build on Your Lot process is unique and adaptable to any situation.

Typical Process:

  1. First, we will have a meeting to discuss your property and what you are looking for in a new custom home.
  2. Then we will provide: a sketch of your new home based on that meeting and rough guestimate of price and specifications free of charge or obligation.
  3. Once we have the sketches, budget, and specifications to your liking, we will collect a deposit for CAD drawings of 1st and 2nd floor and front elevation, which will allow us to further refine the budget.
  4. With buyers’ approval of preliminary plans, we will collect the balance of the design fees in order to finalize the budget and specifications with the completed plans.
  5. Contract execution and construction loan closing.
  6. Then we can start the construction of your new home! This will take roughly 7-9 months from when we pour the foundation to completion depending on area and details of home.
  7. When the home is complete, the final closing occurs, and you get to move into your new home!
  8. While living in your Jamestown Estate Home, you will enjoy the convenience and peace of mind of our Concierge Customer Service program.
