New Construction, Custom Homes | Grand Traverse Area, Michigan

Grand Cherry Builders was formed in 2007 by Jeff Johnson, owner of JJ’s Home Improvements, Inc. He has over 35 years of experience in home construction and remodeling in the Ann Arbor area. After building his own home in Traverse City, Jeff noticed an increasing demand for custom home building in the Grand Traverse area. Modeling Grand Cherry off of his success with JJ’s, he applies the same firm principles to the area’s unique clientele: a full-service, personal approach be it building that cottage in the woods, or that custom dream home on the golf course. By working solely with local architects, designers, suppliers and craftsmen who are dedicated to customer satisfaction, he is fulfilling that demand.
