About Us

The House That Jack Built was founded by Jack Whetstine, President, to meet Bay County and surrounding counties’ needs for quality, well-built housing that is custom tailored to each homeowner’s individual needs and desires, at a price that they can afford.  We strive to be a “turn key” builder – because we understand that the idea of building a home can be intimidating to some people.  Our goal is to completely educate the customer up front of the multiple facets of home construction, lot preparation, permits and financing  – not just quote a “square foot price”.  At the end of the day, we want our customer to have a full understanding of what it will take for them to have the home that they want where they want it, and more importantly to understand the “whole cost” involved (without having “surprises” in the process). 

Owning a new home is a big part of the American Dream.  Many potential homeowners can afford “house payments”, but initially obtaining the house is usually the biggest obstacle for most people.  That is why The House That Jack Built specializes in working closely with individuals and families who might need that extra push to obtain their own home.  We have knowledge, resources and programs available to help many people who are not necessarily in the position to come up with a large down payment, and in some cases may not have perfect credit.

Whether building a large or small home, we at The House That Jack Built have genuine interest in the desires and concerns of our customers.  The road to having a house built always has its bumps, but our goal is to minimize those by servicing our customers in a professional manner.  Over the years we’ve built our reputation by experience, reliability and integrity, and we aim to keep it that way.
