Who We Are And What We Do

Our Story

We are a small family-operated company. Since we started our business in 1998, our goal has been to be a service to our community by offering quality contracting services for every day carpentry needs at a fair price. 

Since then our business and jobs have grown, but our goal has remained the same. We still consider no job too small, too dirty, or too hard for us to tackle.

Our Pledge to quality

We at James Shirk Construction are committed to building the best quality possible in every project we do.

Because quality and cost are often closely connected, we strive to find the perfect balance that fits YOUR needs.

We begin by meeting with you to understand and develop the project of your dreams. Next, we give you information on the building products and techniques that are available and help you choose the ones that best fit your particular needs. 

Then we build your dream project with integrity- we believe that the bolts and nails that will end up covered are important to do right as the last finishing touches of baseboard and crown molding.

We will deliver a project that both exceeds your dreams and lasts for generations to come!

Our Dedicated Team

James Shirk

James (Jim) Shirk founded James Shirk Construction when he moved into the Middle Creek Valley in 1998. He brought with him over 20 years of construction experience. He farmed part time and picked up carpentry jobs on the side. 

As his boys grew and his customer base expanded, he began farming less and building more. His strong work ethic, and fair, honest personality are the back bone of his business. 

He still enjoys tending poultry on his farm in Beaver Springs, and spending time with his children and grandchildren.

Larry Shirk

Larry learned his first lesson in carpentry while still in school, working alongside his dad evenings and summers. Out of school his first job was on the carpentry crew with James Shirk Construction. In 2008 Larry became a partner in James Shirk Construction. 

He likes designing, and the creative problem solving necessary for remodel projects. He still enjoys a good day’s work in the field, and believes the years he has spent in the field give him a practical knowledge in the project design. 

In his spare time, he enjoys wood working, and spending time with his wife and four children.

Josh Boll

Josh joined the team in 2017. He brought with him a drive for professionalism, and dreams to build big. He likes the challenge of finding a system in every job to make it as efficient and consistent as possible. 

He enjoys being outdoors, especially on hot summer days, and in his spare time likes to play sports or spend time on the water in a kayak.
