Are you putting off renovating that kitchen or bathroom? Do you own a historic home? Are you building a new home, an addition, or just want to add some custom features to your second home? Finding a local construction firm that will turn your beautiful home dreams into a structural reality can be a challenge.
With a degree in Architectural and Building Sciences and experience in project management and carpentry, Jason Jones, owner of Ingrained Building Concepts, has a hands-on approach that ranges from budgeting to building.
“I wear a lot of hats,” says Jason. “There really is no average workday. Generally, 80 percent of my time is hands-on in the field and 20 percent is meeting with people,”adds Jason.
“I have a degree in architecture. I chose to put a tool belt on so that I can help people walk through their design and engineering decisions.”
“I believe I’m making people’s lives better in the way that I can. I can help people with how they enjoy their house, which I think helps them emotionally,”
“It’s important that the client is going to be happy with it in the end. We use samples, mock-ups, and sketches to get closer to what their vision is… and make it happen.”

Homegrown in the Hudson Valley, Jason is from Wappingers Falls. After working in New York City, he decided to return to his roots and apply his skills in the location that he loves.
“I grew up here. I’m an outdoors person in general. I just really like the diversity of where we live,” comments Jason.
He wound up starting his own business, Ingrained Woodworking, Inc., back in 1998. “It was my way of finding the right atmosphere to work in,” he says.
Ingrained Building Concepts was formed in 2013 as an expansion of his vision to help clients from concept to completion.
Jason describes his business as a full-service contracting firm, specializing in architectural interiors, exterior elements, post and beam homes, kitchen and bathroom renovations, “and anything that presents a challenge,” he adds.
“Doing a project isn’t just putting pieces together. It’s important that the client is going to be happy with it in the end. We use samples, mock-ups, and sketches to get closer to what their vision is—what they’re picturing in their head—and make it happen. I enjoy helping the client figure that out,” comments Jason.
“I like to be there and work with clients as a team. I help clients make good decisions and guide them through decisions. I go the extra mile. I think it makes for a better cohesive design in the end,” says Jason. His clients range from homeowners in retirement, to weekenders with second homes, to young families adding a section onto their house.
“A lot of people nearing or in retirement want to make their home an enjoyable place to spend more time in,” says Jason. No matter what the job is, he adds, “our approach is still the same level of quality and attention to detail.”
Almost 70 percent of the IBC clientele are return customers and referrals.
IBC works with clients on building and renovation projects generally ranging in price from $5,000 to $200,000. “It’s a mistake to get too comfortable with high-end jobs,” comments Jason. “We’re not doing it just for the money; we’re doing it because we love it. We enjoy helping people find ways to improve their homes and make them more enjoyable.”
Employees Adam Fragetta and Luke Phillips have worked with Jason for almost eight years. “When you hire us, you’re getting a solid background of experience. We’re not only coworkers, we’re friends.” Jason and his team continue to educate themselves with the latest techniques, Wi-Fi, remote connections, and products.
“We try to stay on top of the science behind the products—new products, latest methods, green products, and smart home products.”
IBC works cooperatively on building projects in the Hudson Valley region with Bensonwood, a timber framing company based in New Hampshire.
“When they [Bensonwood] get a job in the Hudson Valley region, as a general contractor I get the site ready. I get the services in place. They help us raise the timber frame and shell and we finish the job,” Jason says.

Voted the Best of Houzz 2017 for client satisfaction, IBC has fifteen reviews on the Houzz website, many of which are similar to this five-star review from client Tom Nolan:
“The crew built a deck on the rear of our house and put a new floor in our dining room. All the work was beautifully done and thoroughly cleaned up afterward. We have used Ingrained several times before and have always been impressed with the craftsmanship they demonstrate in their work. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants quality work at a fair price.”
