Jim Tharp the man: a good friend, an honest man with great integrity, loves and cares for his family and friends. Jim Tharp the builder: honest, quality minded, delivers what he promises. My husband, Tom, had the greatest affection for Jim. Tom always said, 'He's someone you can always trust to do the right thing." (And if Tommy were here, he'd hug him!)
Jim is the kind of builder everyone wants but can't find. His uniqueness keeps him so busy he often flies under the radar. Jim is by no means a cheap builder; instead, he keeps all quality subcontractors and vendors over the years. Regarding my home, I find more and more about the build quality each time we add to our house. Every discipline of construction is apparent to outsiders. Our home is warm, affordable to maintain and of the highest quality. Jim listens well and is one of the hardest-working men I've ever known. It was a pleasure to have Jim build my home and an even greater pleasure getting to know him.
Jim built our home more than 20 years ago. I'm proud to say that our house has been practically maintenance free the entire time we've owned it. This is the home we'll be retiring in and one we hope to keep in the family for a long time.

Jim knows the building business backwards and forwards, and I truly believe he is capable of getting along with just about anybody.

First and foremost, Jim Tharp was chosen to build my home because of his well-known reputation and many years in the trade. Our home came in on budget and was delivered exactly when promised. When I think of Jim, I think of words like: trustworthiness, integrity, patience and honesty. Jim stays up to date with the newest house designs and building codes, which is of enormous importance when, as buyers, you are out of your element.
