A Message from Owner & Builder, Jacob Tankersley

Hello and thank you for visiting our site.

Let me tell you a little about myself.

Since the age of seven, I was mentored by my father, and I carry a lifelong involvement in the construction industry.

Early on, I learned a good lesson: Not all contractors are created equal.

When I was young, my parents built their first home, and long before their project was complete, a contractor took off with $20,000 of my parents’ money, never to be seen or heard from again. From that experience, I learned something important: Not all contractors build homes with moral integrity, high regard and responsibility to their clients, or pride in workmanship.

My personal standard: Be the type of builder my clients can rely on for the best building experience possible. Provide them a premier custom home, built with integrity and craftsmanship, and offer the very best in design and collaboration.

Now over twenty years in the building industry since my college education in Construction Management from John Brown University, I have been involved in the management and building of over 150 residential homes.

I launched GB Group Construction in 2009, with a commitment to build modern, high-end custom homes that are elegant, energy-efficient, and skillfully designed and constructed.

I live in Springdale with my wife, two children, and a wirehaired pointer named Rip (my huntin’ dog). When I’m not working with clients or spending time with family, you will find me cheering on the Razorbacks or hunting in the Ouachita Mountains.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site.

I look forward to talking with you about your custom home project.
