About

Jim Miller Construction was founded in May of 1976 by James L. Miller, Jr. (Jim) and his wife, Sallie Miller. Working in the industry from a young age, Jim acquired extensive skills in a variety of construction trades and quickly obtained his Class A contractor’s license. Forty years later, the business remains family owned and operated by Jim and Sallie, along with their children, Jamie and Ashley. The family also owns and operates Miller’s Septic Service, specializing in septic, plumbing, drain cleaning, and electrical services.

As a general contractor for 40 years building custom residential and commercial projects, Jim has become well known for his creativity in design and functional use of space. There is no project too small or too large for Jim Miller Construction. Areas of expertise include waterfront homes, colonial designs, historic restoration, commercial construction requiring custom designs, banks, churches, remodeling, and additions. Notable construction projects include Auburn Plantation in Mathews, Sweetwater in North, Whitehall Plantation in Gloucester, Colonial Virginia Banks in Gloucester and New Kent, and Tidewater Physical Therapy in Gloucester.

At Jim Miller Construction, we take your ideas and dreams and turn them into reality. We spend a significant amount of time upfront getting to know our customers and their wants, needs, and preferences. Our pre-construction meetings allow us to turn vision into design while maintaining individual budget parameters. We establish realistic allowances for fixtures and finishes prior to beginning construction, by assisting our customers in making these selections upfront. This process helps to simplify decision making once construction is underway and ensures that budget figures are accurate and attainable in order to minimize the dreadful unexpected overages.

Building the home of your dreams is a major life event that often brings about conflicting amounts of excitement and stress. Many people shy away from custom building because they are unsure of where to start and fear the stress and turmoil many people experience. At Jim Miller Construction, we are always available, and our guidance and hands on approach provide an enjoyable experience and seamless process. It is our mission to ensure your needs are met, your stress is minimal, and our services are executed in a personalized, professional, and compassionate manner.
