About Highland Builders
Construction and Building Team
We have experienced over the years that building a new home or renovating an existing home can be a complex and overwhelming undertaking for some people so we have thoughtfully assembled a step by step list for our clients that has proven to be not only helpful, but valuable in our relationship with the client, as we proceed through the project together.
We have chosen some of the finest and reliable subcontractors to work with us and our clients. It is important to us that our subcontractors be specialists in their field by being knowledgeable with current materials and installation techniques. It is equally important that our subcontractors are able to have a professional rapport with our clients.
Our Architectural Design service can assist our clients with any architectural needs. The ability to create our clients visions of their project before we start is the most important and first element to a successful project. Our computer capability to present our clients with three dimensional views and color renderings is one of the many talents we can share.
Our Interior Design service is provided in the early stages of your project . Space planning for the interior has many valuable features and should always be considered for function and aesthetics. We can assist and guide you in the selection making of all the interior materials needed in your home. For example the cabinetry, fixtures, appliances, flooring, walls, paint, lighting and plumbing fixtures. As the project unfolds the interior finishes for the home becomes endless and with good planning can be created into a personal and pleasing environment.
General Contractor and Sole Proprietor ~ Russell J. Perry Jr.
Russell was born into a third generation family of crafted builders on Cape Cod. He attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay and graduated with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Engineering in 1978. Working as an engineer for the next several years he shipped overseas to various countries around the world. In 1981 he finished his engineering career on the sea and ventured out in a successful career building custom homes in the state of Florida.
The move to Jupiter, Florida with Robin, his wife of thirty years and a native of Cape Cod, proved to be a start to a lifelong and rewarding career in the construction business. Highland Builders, Inc. was established in 1985, and grew for the next twenty years as Russell capitalized on many building opportunities. Among his accomplishments was the construction of twenty-one homes in distinguished developments such as Seminole Landing, Jupiter Hills, Loblolly Pines, Loblolly Bay, Jupiter Farms, Jupiter Island and Sailfish Point. In addition to his residential work were many commercial projects such as St Jude’s Catholic Church, Ralph Lauren Polo, Publix Supermarket and a business office complex.
While enjoying a growing and prosperous business in Florida the thought of moving back to his home on the Cape was always present. His decision to move back in 2001 with his wife and two young boys enabled him to bring back with him a dream to establish his company on the Cape and to once again rejuvenate his family’s name in the construction business.
For the past eight years Russell and his crew have built and renovated many homes on Cape Cod in addition to a recent project in the state of Maine. While Russell enjoys the process of building the entire home, renovations and small “add-ons” are equally challenging and rewarding to achieve for his clients.
Russell’s passion to build is prevalent in his commitment to quality, his “hands-on” construction style as a General Contractor, and his coherency with his clients.
