Remodeling or expanding an existing home requires the ability to conceptualize the project, clearly articulate one’s vision to the client and complete the transformation with minimal disruption. At E.J. Jaxtimer Builder, Inc. we will preserve the character of your home, making sure that the addition or remodel complements and enhances the existing structure. Your updated or expanded home will remain in direct proportion and design to your existing home, but you will be hard-pressed to imagine your original house in its previous form.
We handle multiple projects every year, working with architects, interior designers, vendors and subcontractors with whom we first began developing relationships in 1978. Whether you want to turn a dark attic into a light-filled office, add a sun porch or a game room, or double the size of your home with a second story that features a master bedroom and a spacious luxurious bath, we will guide you through every step of the process.
As always, our professional in-house team and full time office staff will be available to answer your questions. The common thread in all our projects, regardless of scope, is our quality craftsmanship and dedicated customer service.
Michele and I share a common view of the work of E.J. Jaxtimer. In a word, “awesome”. During our past 50 years, we have lived in various parts of the country and have built or added onto numerous homes. On the Cape, we were fortunate to remodel and construct substantial additions onto two older, charming Cape homes. In both cases, though a few years apart, we used E.J. Jaxtimer and have been ecstatic with the results. The creativity and craftsmanship, in our experience, were unparalleled. Moreover, working with E.J. and his team of professionals both on and off of the job, is a joy!”
E.J.’s construction staff continues to be available to us whenever the need arises for something that needs attention or even something special! It’s great to know you’ve got a partner in E.J. He’s always willing to help.
We rented for the next few years until we found “the perfect” house and location. A summer cottage without heat or air, no basement, windows falling apart, but we loved it!
Since our first project with E.J. six years ago we have done another great “mini” project of a garden construction and the renovation of an outbuilding using repurposed materials such as windows, doors, flooring and barnwood. The landscape division and the carpenters worked with me to develop my idea for a “secret garden” and we turned it into reality together. Subcontractors working alongside the landscape team and the builders did a really superb job. The landscape staff continues to maintain both our home, landscape and our secret garden.
Several years later after our initial meeting with E.J., we called him. Once again he was very accommodating and friendly. We hired him to renovate our “dream cottage”. Having done several other house renovations, I like to be very involved in the project. I would visit the site every few weeks to check on progress and to make decisions as needed. I’d to meet with E.J. and his staff, they always seemed happy to see me. His crew was terrific. Our project manager was with us at every step of the way, helping with decisions and providing options. We had an amazing working relationship. His carpenters were perfectionists, his subs were all very responsive. The job site was always neat and clean (which is extremely important I realized having experienced some renovations that were not). E.J. met our move-in date for a planned family reunion and the house turned out to be perfect!
I met E.J. Jaxtimer about 12 years ago when we were looking to a buy a home that needed a major renovation. I wanted to get a contractor to look at it and give me some professional advice. I had only heard of E.J.’s reputation through some friends and acquaintances. We had never met, but he agreed to meet me and look over the house and property. He gave me some ballpark numbers, his personal opinions, showed me other houses he was working on to give me an idea of the caliber of work they did. E.J. was very professional, accommodating, and very engaging. He has a very happy smile! The work done on the homes he showed me was impeccable, beautiful craftsmanship, exquisite woodworking.” But, we didn’t buy that house.

When we moved to Osterville, our real estate agent recommended E.J. Jaxtimer for help in managing our property. The responsiveness and family oriented nature of E.J. Jaxtimer was very unique and established a bond of trust. We have completed three construction projects with the Jaxtimer’s, and all have met or exceeded expectations for quality, and on-time performance. The Jaxtimer’s also have very strong vendor/supplier relationships which are essential in getting big projects completed on time. The Jaxtimer’s also worked seamlessly with our interior designer and architects with no issues.
For me a family run business with deep roots on Cape Cod makes E.J. Jaxtimer the builder of choice.
