Appalachian Contracting Services has been a respected home builder in Dahlonega and North Georgia since 1988, when it was founded by company President, Jim Combs. Appalachian Contracting has the experience and ability to guide your project from design to dream come true whether it be residential, remodeling, renovation or light
commercial. We specialize in building custom homes, whether you want a traditional or alternative style home.

Jim Combs is a Certified Green Professional. Green homes incorporate environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the building and development process to minimize environmental impact. The design, construction, and operation of a home must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, and must take the home’s overall impact on the environment into account

As a Certified EarthCraft House Builder, Jim Combs is a leader in smart growth management and environmental stewardship. EarthCraft House is a green building program that serves as a blueprint for healthier, more comfortable homes that reduce utility bills and protect the environment.

  • "What Jim Combs says is the truth to the best of his experience and knowledge. He is continually learning and reading. You do not have to question what Jim tells you is the best way to proceed. His advice and experience are helpful to attaining the home you want to build."

  • "His years of experience can be trusted. If Jim is your builder, you will have a unique experience and you will truly create a custom built home."

  • "If you choose Jim Combs as your Contractor, you will quickly learn that Jim prefers to build with the owners being very involved in the day-to-day decisions."

  • "The most outstanding quality of the skills of Jim Combs is his natural practice of integrity in his work. One never has to question what is behind the sheetrock, under the flooring or in the conduit under the earth. It is as good as it was possible to build at that time."

  • "Our home was completed in a timely fashion with good guidance and organization."

  • "By being available not only to you, but to every sub-contractor and every worker in each phase of the building process, Jim demands and gets quality work from all who enter the work site. The workers are the quality of their work. They told us they worked on our home like it was their own home."

  • "During the first months of construction, we were in Florida. Jim would take pictures and send them to us via e-mail. It kept us a part of the building process."

  • "We were encouraged by Jim to communicate with him by e-mail, phone, or US mail. He never gave us the impression that we were interfering or a bother to him. He listened carefully to each question or concern that we expressed. He cared."

  • "In our opinion and from personal experience, Jim Combs and his subcontractors are consummate professionals."

  • "You may want to know that we came within a few hundred dollars of our estimate, amazingly enough. Of course, we had to compensate with a lot of "sweat equity," which is still continuing!

  • "We want you to know how much we appreciate your enormous efforts on this very complex project! You're the best!"
