Jon S. Rufty

A 1977 graduate of N.C. State, Jon is a respected custom builder who has served the region as the premier luxury homebuilder for nearly 30 years. His skillset, experience and commitment to fine quality carry weight across the residential and commercial building community.

Jon’s contributions to our community have raised the bar for high-quality design, interior and exterior detailing, energy efficiency and green building. His commitment to innovation extends beyond residential building into commercial construction and community development.

As one of the area’s forefathers of sustainability, Jon was ‘green’ long before the trend became in vogue. He created the nationally-lauded “HealthyHouse”™ in 1994 in cooperation with the American Lung Association and the NAHB Research Center. This cutting-edge work has driven innovation in the building trades, with sustainable concepts and technologies still being used two decades later.

Jon is responsible for Progress Energy’s first EnergyStar structure in North Carolina, as well as the state’s first Institute for Business and Home Safety “Fortified for safer living®” home, finished in 2002. For more than 30 years, Jon and his wife have resided in Cary, N.C., where they’ve raised two children. His passion for integrity, personal respect, and design-build craftsmanship are fundamental principles of Rufty-Peedin’s commercial projects.
