John S. Long II
Living his dream and continuing his family’s legacy, John S. Long II leads Elite Building Group, a custom home builder located in wild and wonderful West Virginia.
John is a third generation builder and brings experience and expertise to his projects.
His exposure started early and his skillset and knowledge grew quickly – working his earliest years with his father (and grandfather) under the trusted and respected Long’s Construction brand – where the team took on projects large and small – from roof jobs, repairs, decks, home renovations to custom homes and spec-houses.
Through this crucial phase of his experience-building, John was exposed to all facets of carpentry, home building, and property development – including work with log homes & timber frames, concrete, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, roofing, roads, and landscaping.
Via the Elite Building Group that John founded in 2013 – he and his team specializes in elegant, large-format, mountain custom homes – and the Elite team seeks challenging, memorable projects.
John is a problem solver and coordinator, organizing and bringing together disparate elements, vendors, workers, sub-contractors and more to work in harmony towards the creation of the client’s vision.
With an exceptional understanding, a broad grasp, and a strong sense of visualization and assessment, John and his team work hard to make the home-owner’s dreams come true.
