Great company to do business with that puts their customers first every time. I've watched them first hand deal with homeowners and was very impressed with the amount of attention to detail they invest in each customer.

DO NOT hire these people. They are unprofessional and subcontract work out to cheap, third rate help that does sloppy work and pats no attention to detail. They squander your money on these people and end up having to re-do work. They do not satisfactorily address customer concerns, do not follow up on promises, fail to keep appointments, and they lie. If you want professionals who know how to properly manage and complete a construction project, hire another company. You have been warned.

Had damaged formica tops and ceiling fans from oil and water based paint. Paint could not be removed with goof-off or other chemical. The metal on the fans were scratched. Had to get new formica tops and ceiling fans which cost me over 2600 dollars. Also, the sheetrock finish had crater holes, marks, and uneven texture. This will cost over 1200 dollars to repair. The other work in the house was done good. Would rate a 5 star but cannot because of the damaged items. Prep work to protect the house from this damage did not exist.

Custom Homes By Jim Fussell
We hired Jim Fussell to build our home and it was a nightmare. Jim Fussell is not a builder, he's a master scam artist. He will lie, steal, cheat, blame others but he will never complete your house. He never told us that he was under investigation by the LA Contractors Licensing Board and in fact was put on probation in May 2013. The board put him on probation because 4 homeowners made serious complaints about him. In the process of our build 4 new homeowners, including us, made new accusations against Jim Fussell that he was incapable of building our homes. The board voted and agreed to revoke his license. Unfortunately, his attorney, Scott Frazier was able to get his license back due to a technicality. He has left us with an incomplete house. If you are considering hiring him for anything. Do your homework. Ask people around Baton Rouge. I have met so many people who have nothing good to say about Jim Fussell. He may bid your house at what seems a very reasonable price but it will cost you more after you have to hire a new contractor to fix his mistakes and complete the project. This is not one isolated incident. He has left 8 homeowners in the last 4 years either without a home or with an incomplete home. Jim Fussell had many chances to make our situation right but he chose to take our money and use it for anything other than building our house. Don't let yourself go through what we and 7 other homeowners have gone through.

Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
