As a family-owned construction company in Advance, North Carolina, the CKJ team knows the importance of quality products and superior results.

 CKJ’s philosophy is based on the belief that integrity, quality construction, and superior customer service are the keys to all their projects. From custom home construction to home renovations and choosing the details that make your home unique, they’re there with you every step of the way.

 Choosing CKJ Building & Design is choosing to eliminate stress and partner with a company that holds integrity, quality and your wants in the highest regards.



For over 25+ years, CKJ Building & Design owners, Chris and Melissa Johnson have been transforming houses and building homes from the ground up for their clients.

Ever since Chris was a little boy playing with Lincoln Logs, he has had an interest and passion for the construction industry. After working alongside his father and various construction businesses during his college years, he found a career doing what he loves.

Melissa’s eye for detail in homes caught Chris’s eye during college and the rest is history. Her knack for knowing what a home needs, for seeing the small things that make a big difference and being able to communicate those ideas well to customers is what makes this dynamic duo a successful team.

“From the beginning, our philosophy has been based on the belief that integrity, quality construction, and superior customer service are the keys to delivering an outstanding project. We know that our clients trust us to cut through the noise on all those critical decisions that present themselves with all home building and home remodeling jobs. We exceed the standards and approach every project as if it were happening with our own home.”



CKJ Building & Design is proud to offer the highest quality products and services while staying within your budget. Chris and Melissa personally manage each project, stopping by the construction sites to ensure that vendors have their supplies, no problems have surfaced and that the timeline and budget are met.

Chris is an accredited professional in the Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design group and intentionally implements Green Building practices into each project. A member of the CKJ team will act as a “personal shopper” with you to alleviate the stress and reduce the number of decisions you have to make during this process.
