Listen to the CKJ Building and Design Podcast online here:

About Our Guest:

During his college years at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Chris Johnson developed a passion for building high-quality custom homes. He took advantage of some early exposure with a luxury home builder to hone his skills and to learn what it takes to create homes that are not only aesthetically pleasing but most importantly structurally sound. Twenty-five years ago he married his wife, Melissa, and together they formed CKJ Building & Design based on the mission of providing outstanding value and unparalleled quality in every project in which they are involved. They knew from the beginning that they would approach every home as if it was their own.

In 1996, Chris and Melissa moved their family and their business to Davie County following a job change for Melissa. They were confident that this community would provide a safe place to raise their two boys and to grow an already thriving construction business. They quickly developed relationships with local craftsmen, many whom they still work with, to form a team that always exceeds standard building practices. Chris expanded his custom home building business to include remodeling, room additions, space design, and commercial construction. While rising to the top of his profession, Chris continues to bring the people of Davie County a business based on integrity, quality construction, and superior customer service.
