Our story began when Michelle and her husband built a custom home for her family and recognized a need and opportunity to make the custom building process better for homeowners.

“Building a custom home is very personal,” says Michelle.  “We wanted to gather a group of service-minded professionals – with extensive experience – so we could manage every step of the process and together create a wonderful home and have fun doing it.”

Jim McVicker, Michelle’s father, saw the same opportunity. After several discussions, they decided to set out on the journey together. From there, J&K was born (J&K stands for Jim and Kathleen “Michelle”).

Jim McVicker and Michelle Moran – Founders of J&K Custom Homes

J&K Custom Homes was formed over 15 years ago for the purpose of creating a reimagined custom home building experience.  Today, Jim McVicker and Michelle Moran lead the way of one of Cincinnati’s top custom home builders, the recipient of over a dozen awards.

After retiring from over 30 years in the executive corporate finance arena at a Fortune 500 company, Jim has applied his expertise to the management and operational standards of the company we see today.  Michelle has extensive knowledge of the design and construction process and as someone who built her own home, knows how to make the many decisions along the way. Michelle uses her financial and accounting as well as her consulting and project management background to guide new homeowners through the process, on-time and within budget.
