Founded in 1993 by Jim Cutter, Cutter Construction, Inc. and Cutter Custom Homes have grown into one of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky’s must reputable and trusted builders. Our company specializes in building custom homes, but we are actively involved in the remodeling industry and undertake several commercial projects each year.

Jim founded our two divisions—Cutter Construction, Inc. (managing residential remodeling and commercial projects) and Cutter Custom Homes (specializing in new custom home construction)—on the philosophy that no project is too big or small for our team. With that commitment and dedication in mind, we are proud to have earned the trust of our customers, subcontractors, and community. Over more than 20 years, what has brought Jim, particularly, great satisfaction is earning the privilege to build some of our customers' second homes. We think there is no greater honor or label of trust than to have someone come back to us again.

Jim, a graduate of the construction management program at Northern Kentucky University and the Northern Kentucky Home Builders Association’s carpentry apprenticeship program, not only leads our company but is a trusted leader in the homebuilding industry. In 2013, he served as president of the Home Builders Association of Kentucky, a commitment he decided to make after serving with distinction as president of the Northern Kentucky Home Builders Association in 2006. A moment of great pride and recognition of success for our company came in 2007 when Jim was awarded the prestigious Donald M. Wiedeman Award for dedication, loyalty, and service to the association and industry. A shining moment for the entire company, though, arrived in 2011 when the Better Business Bureau of Greater Cincinnati bestowed on our company the Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, recognizing the great care we take to treat each customer with respect, honesty, and loyalty.

Our entire team and field crews understand the need for timely job completion and for meeting the financial needs of our customers. For more than 20 years, we have developed a proven reputation for guiding our customers through every aspect of their project. The Cutter team is committed to building lifelong relationships that transcend one project or home. We think that's why we have earned customers' respect enough to build a second home.

Further, our company is not only committed to meeting our customers' expectations, but we find it important to help build our community. Jim and our whole team have volunteered time and expertise to churches, schools, charitable foundations, and nonprofit organizations. We are proud that many in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky recognize the Cutter Construction name not just for our homes but for the multiple youth organizations, sports teams, and charitable projects that we have sponsored or undertaken.

Over the years, we have been honored to receive more than 300 industry awards for our custom home and remodeling projects. This recognition, mostly from our local and state associations, humbles us and signifies to our customers and community that our standards are no less than the best. Additionally, the awards and recognition given to Jim Cutter in the past 20 years reflect our leader’s commitment to our industry, associations, and community. Here are just a few of the awards, recognitions, and honors we have been proud to receive.
