About Terry Jensen Construction

As a successful custom home builder for nearly 30 years, Terry Jensen Custom Homes has many satisfied clients who heartily endorse our company for future projects. Terry is personally involved with the process of speculative building, from finding and developing the land and designing the ideal home for the property, to marketing and working with the eventual buyers, through handing over the keys. 

Terry has been involved in building homes all his life, starting with working for his father’s building company.  Since starting his own business in 1988, Terry has built many homes, ranging in price from $300,000 to over $5 million.   

Terry Jensen Custom Homes specializes in view and waterfront properties, which present their own set of challenges due to height restrictions, environmental concerns, etc.   Terry is well qualified to manage the homebuilding process through the various regulatory steps, keeping the time and money spent on this aspect to a minimum.

The goal of Terry Jensen Custom Homes is to build the best home possible for the many unique properties in our beautiful area. We have built many homes in the Puget Sound region, from Tacoma to Seattle; a driving tour of some of our homes will show the quality construction we pride ourselves on.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

“We were fortunate to work with Terry Jensen when we originally built our house.  The architect had drawn the basic plans, but it turned out to be more of a design build.  Terry was great in guiding us through this process.  Terry asked us the right questions and laid out our options so that we could make informed decisions.  Our house was completed on time and under budget.  We liked Terry so much that he recently completed our kitchen, study, and barbecue area remodel.  You can’t go wrong working with Terry Jensen Construction.

Bob & Carolyn McGarvey

My wife and I decided to build our retirement home in federal Way, WA., on a view lot we had owned for many years.  At that time, we were both living and working on the East Coast.  We learned of Terry Jensen Custom homes quite by accident.  Until we made our first appointment with Builder, Terry Jensen, we had made dozens of expensive flights back and forth, working with our Architect and getting more frustrated with each trip.   Meeting with Jensen was the hope that saved the dream of seeing this home built.  Jensen took charge, redesigned architectural errors and truly walked us through a building project step by step.  Attention to detail and excellence in quality work, from beginning to completion.  Our home has more than met our expectations and we owe it to Terry Jensen Construction.

If we relocate and leave this house (Heaven forbid) we would want Terry Jensen to build us another home.
