John Ewing and Jim McConnaughy have been partners in construction since 1982. We have been building fine homes in Western North Carolina since 1995. Our combined fifty-plus years experience in the building industry includes new construction, renovations and remodeling in both the retail and commercial sectors.

With a team-oriented approach to each project, we are equally comfortable working with everything from an idea in your head to the most detailed or innovative set of architectural drawings. We both make it a point to be on-site to personally oversee the work progress. Ewing & McConnaughy has earned a reputation for being professional, dependable, and trustworthy, and we have built a solid reputation for quality.

Ewing and McConnaughy is a hands-on company from top to bottom, foundation to finish. We put together teams of experienced professionals who are focused on a single goal...quality. Quality in both service to you, and in the finished product which is your home. You are our team leader. Everything we do is geared toward meeting your needs, goals and wishes. Building projects can be detailed, adventurous, and yes, frustrating. We are with you each step of the way, providing support, confidence, and resources.   

We realize the value of communication to the process, and see it as the key to a successful job well done. With an attention to detail and a commitment to quality, we strive to bring your project in on time and on budget. Both our employees and sub-trade professionals are experienced and dedicated to producing a final product we can all be proud of.

Our contacts, resources, and experience can help you with options, ideas, problem-solving, and problem prevention. In addition, we would be happy to recommend an architect, interior designer, or landscape company, for a full range of services. We have an unlimited general contractor's license in North Carolina and maintain compliance with all local, state and federal regulatory and insurance authorities.
