J&R Construction

What Makes Lexington Great?

It’s not every day that you hear about a 10-year-old making their own clubhouse, but Jimmy McKinney did just that. Woodworking is a skill passed down from father to son in the McKinney family, so it was only natural that Jimmy went on to start his own remodeling company. In 2003, he partnered with his childhood friend, Russell, and started J&R Construction. He has since put his stamp on the bluegrass state through kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, finished basements, room additions, decks, porches, and whole house remodeling. 

Jimmy still holds the pole vault record in Jessamine County at 14'6"!

J&R Construction has standout projects thanks to their skilled, local employees and the hundreds of contractors they partner with. This is just one way that Jimmy has worked to reinvest in his community. “When you buy and support local, you are supporting the families in your community,” says McKinney. 

In addition to revitalizing homes around Lexington, Jimmy also has a podcast, “Skinny on The Home.” He offers callers expert advice on home improvements, remodels, design and building projects. It’s an innovative approach that allows Jimmy to build relationships and connect the community.
