Building stories.

We believe that each of our lives are collection of stories being told.

We also believe that a home is far more than the engineering of its construction or a transaction between a client and a builder. Home is the setting of the mundane moments, the insane moments, and the unforgettable moments, home is the backdrop of our lives. Home is where our stories are born and live. At Jim Scott and Sons, we do not simple build homes, we build stories.

With over 40 years of building under our belt, we are excellent at our craft. Yet, we believe that excellence in building science and seamless execution is only the prerequisite for our industry, we have raised the bar to include an unforgettable experience that lasts a life time.

Our philosophy for building your future home starts with a single focus on your story, your family and creating your vision. In doing so we create and experience far and above building a house. We create a home where your stories can live and thrive.

We understand that for our clients, few life adventures will be more personal to them then the investment and of building the home of their dreams. This is why for 45 years we have been building more than dream homes, we build stories.


Their stories.

A home is far more than a transaction between a client and a builder.

People over profit. Excellence no matter the cost. Our portfolio speaks for itself and our clients have nice things to say about us.

Our story.

In 1974, James Russell Scott graduated from Southern Methodist University and joined his family in the profession of real estate. A few years into his career, he started to dream about the possibility of building the homes that he sold. So he did just that. He conceptualized and constructed a series of town homes in Highland Park and instantly fell in love with the building industry. It was more than a career to him – it was a calling. 

His desire was to build more than homes. He was passionate about creating spaces for memories to be made and life to be lived. Jim Scott raised his sons with the same passion. His career eventually became a legacy that outlived him by generations.

 Today, Jim Scott and Sons Builders is living in his legacy.

Now, with almost 50 years of homes in the company’s portfolio, Peter and Daniel Scott are leading a company born by a young entrepreneur who had a vision to create a business that focused more on people than the bottom line.
