“Get something done!” –James Blankenship

“James is the secret weapon of DDB. He cares about your project like it was his own home,” says Howard and Jackie G. of Poway. James is the Senior Project Manager at Dream Design Builders, with tenure of 16 years with the company. He is a knowledgeable advocate for the customer who has the respect of those around him and the experience to get things done the right way.

James has nearly 30 years of experience in all phases of construction and is a licensed General Contractor who is EPA-Certified. James excels at communication and keeping each project on-schedule and on budget. As one Oceanside homeowner said, “None of my friends could believe it when we stayed on schedule—there were no surprises and we knew exactly what to expect each day. Amazing!” Clients know that they can communicate openly with James about all of their concerns and come to trust James to deliver on Dream Design Builder’s promise of exceptional service. James’ favorite part of his work is the excitement of the client’s face when the project is complete.

With his grandfather helping to build and design one of the first Shiada recreational boats and then building their family cabin in Big Bear, building was born into James’ blood. At 4 years old, James was helping to build the cabin by handing his grandfather the hammer, nails, and whatever else he could get his hands on. Today James is a building professional with decades of hands on experience, even building and remodeling his own home to complete automobile restorations.  James enjoys the fine quality of older automobiles and the newly refined horsepower that can be achieved in today’s vehicles, James is hands on with a can-build-anything attitude, and he has been able to do just that. If it can be done, James is the one to build it or oversee the operations to build it!

If we were to excerpt even half of the glowing comments written about James in our client surveys, it would fill this entire page. The simple fact is that James creates raving fans out of clients, city building inspectors, trades professionals, and his fellow teammates because of his proven ability to get the job done. He has aged like a fine wine and has only gotten better over time. James possesses the capability to schedule, maintain, and multitask seemingly unrealistic time lines on multiple projects in conjunction with his ability to keep the customer relationships informed with honesty and integrity. He is the true definition of a company man who will stand behind his work as well as his word.
