Based in Camden, South Carolina, JP Smith Builders is an experienced, dynamic and energetic custom homebuilding company with a reputation of exceeding our customers’ expectations. Our homes are built well beyond engineering and building code requirements utilizing extra bracing, heavier plywood and many more “unseen” structural upgrades that are standard in our homes. Combined with our experience and expertise, these are only a few of the items that make a JP Smith Builder home one of unsurpassed quality.

Contractor, owner, and Camden native, John Paul Smith is licensed by the state of South Carolina as a residential and commercial contractor.
