“Harmonizing generations of quality with modern design” is more than a slogan to us. It’s organizing principle behind every house we build. In 1997, we followed in the footsteps of four generations of Grisez family homebuilding in Mid and Northeast Ohio and created Generations Construction. Now, homebuyers in the Miami Valley are able to benefit from all the quality, integrity, and tradition associated with Grisez homebuilding. We combine seasoned home building experience with innovative business practices and functional, creative home design.
At Generations Construction we realize the purchase of a home is one of the most important life choices you will ever make. Our philosophy is to balance the personal space and time and time you need to make this important decision with consistent follow up, a wealth of informational resources, and a consideration for your individuality and budgetary requirements. Our process provided you with an organized and positive home building experience. Our goal is to accommodate your needs from our initial meeting until the day you move into your new home, and to provide unmatched service and guidance during the time you live in your home.

J&K Custom Homes
The J&K story began when Michelle and her husband built a custom home for her family and recognized a need and opportunity to make the custom building process better for homeowners.
“Building a custom home is very personal,” says Michelle. ‘We wanted to gather a group of service-minded professionals- with extensive experience-so we could manage every step of the process and together create a wonderful home and have fun doing it.”
Jim McVicker, Michelle’s father, saw the same opportunity. After several discussion, they decided to set out on the journey together. From there, J&K was born (J&K stands for Jim and Kathleen “Michelle”).
After retiring from over 30 years in the executive corporate finance arena at a Fortune 500 company, Jim has applied his expertise to the management and operational standards of the company we see today.
Michelle has extensive knowledge of the design and construction process and as someone who built her own home, knows how to make the many decisions along the way. Michelle uses her financial and accounting as well as her consulting and project management background to guide new homeowners through the process, on-time and within budget.
