Jess Alway, Inc. is one of Oregon's premier custom homebuilders.

Jess takes pride in the details. Materials are of the highest quality and customizations are as unique as the home's owner.


We had never built before, and Jess made it very easy for us. He was organized, and people were here working on our house every day until it was finished. And it came in on budget. We would build with Jess again.”
—Bob and Linda Kraus
The home Jess built for us is a treasure because of the care and attention to detail that he put into every aspect of the construction process. Jess was able to turn unique and creative ideas into reality, and he knows how to do them in ways that are budget friendly. We very much appreciated his hands-on approach, as well as his commitment to staying on schedule. As far as we're concerned, no one builds a higher quality home than Jess Alway."

Can you be friends with your builder after the house is finished? We can. Jess did excellent work; everything we agreed on. He and his subcontractors got everything done---and done right.”
— Stuart and Stephanie Travis
We took a long time to decide who would build our home. We wanted a quality builder who would stay within a budget. We worked closely with Jess, and finished within $200 of the original estimate. We really appreciated his honesty and integrity. That’s rare to find.”
