Since 1985 Cornelius Construction Company has built, designed, or renovated hundreds of homes in the Northeast Florida area, including the beaches.
We have worked with some of the very best architects, including the much-loved and well known William Morgan, and Steven Harris Architects. Attention to detail and thoughtful consideration for the final vision allows for smooth working relationships and an excellent finished product.
Expertise in thorough design-build renovations allows our team of craftsmen to transform your home into a work of art. Creativity and years of experience as a builder allow us to make space and create beauty.
Current projects include both traditional and contemporary renovations for single-family homes and condominiums, as well as new construction.
Cornelius Construction homes have been featured in Metropolitan Home, Veranda, House & Garden, and European Elle Decor as well as on the cover of Progressive Architecture. Regional periodicals include Water’s Edge, The Florida Times Union, and Jacksonville Luxury Living.
Cornelius Construction founder, Peggy Cornelius, was originally an educator and successful artist; 33 years ago Peggy followed her passion and began a new career as a builder. Inspiration from traveling, her art background and a continued, intense study of architecture and interior design continues to renew a love of building and renovating spaces for individuals, families, and businesses.
