“Jim Riley dba Truckee Custom homes built a beautiful second home for our family during the year 2013-14. This home although a single story and relatively modest in size was non-the-less a significantly complex project insofar as engineering and finish details.

Jim and his associates performed marvelously on the project and were able to solve many complex construction issues often times associated with a project of this scope and magnitude. His “attention to detail” is not just a saying, rather a fact with how his teams performed and evidenced by the finished product. The project was completed in a timely manner especially considering the level of detail required by the owners.

Post production support has been excellent and unwavering wherein Jim has worked hard to ensure that all of the subcontractors on this job have followed through when required.

If you are looking for a high quality home with a builder of the highest integrity, Truckee Custom Homes is the company to call.”

-David & Julie Lynch, Meadow House Project, Lahontan 2014.

“Jim Riley is an amazing builder and was a great person to work with on our challenging remodels. He is efficient, organized, detail orientated and has a great eye for both design and problem solving. We live in San Jose, so it was very important to have a builder we trusted, understood exactly what we wanted and stayed within budget. We were so impressed with Jim’s work that he has remodeled several areas of our house in Truckee”

-Robyn Wills and Stuart Ching

“I have been using Jim Riley for over 20 years in a variety of projects ranging from remodels to custom homes. He is on the job every day working with his carpenters and subcontractors, unlike some “office contractors” who only visit your jobsite a few hours once a week. He started his career many years ago as a finish carpenter, and this shows up in his attention to detail and his high standards for the work. He works well with architects, designers and subs. He has my unqualified recommendation. He is always my first choice.”

–Jim Duckworth

“Jim Riley is a real pleasure to work with and is very attentive to our guidelines and standards at Martis Camp.”
–Keith Franke, Martis Camp Architecture Review, DMB/Highlands Group, LLC

“We currently have a custom home under construction on the putting green at Martis Camp in Truckee, CA. This is the second home Jim has built for us. He is an accomplished builder with creative vision, fine workmanship, cost saving ideas and good problem solving skills. His suggestions for materials and finishes are outstanding. We highly recommend him.”

–Roberta Dixon

“Jim Riley has been the general contractor on two of our projects and has proven himself as an accomplished and detail oriented builder. He is always a pleasure to work with.”

–Jared Polsky, Polsky and Perlstein Architects

Jim Riley of Truckee Custom Homes did a major remodel of our home in Northstar. He did a fabulous job, turning a somewhat dated 18 year old home into a modern and beautiful residence. Jim is a honest, efficient and driven contractor as well as an amazing craftsman. He plans his work well, and delivers projects on schedule and budget. We highly recommend him to anyone contemplating building a new mountain home or upgrading an older one.
