"We couldn’t be happier with our decision to use JL Thompson Design Group in designing our new home. Their team went above and beyond to meet and exceed our expectations! The detail they poured into our exterior/interior design, materials, maximization of our property views and 3D renderings could not have been better. We came to them with scattered ideas of what we would like (to) see and they seemingly effortlessly (and beautifully) turned them into our dream home. Giving us the ability to see the detail of every aspect of our home before construction began left us with the utmost confidence and excitement for our project. We can’t say enough about how professional, creative and fun they were to work with!"

"J.L Thompson Design Group did a fantastic job taking our idea for an addition and making it come to life on paper and the 3D renderings. Construction started this week and we feel completely at peace that our contractor has what he needs to bring our dreams to life."

"We highly recommend using Jason and his design team. After meeting Jason for the first time, we knew he was the one who could help us with our Lake House Remodel and additions. Jason and his team operate with the highest levels of integrity, professionalism and friendliness. They listen to your ideas, concerns, desires and goals and build them into the design process. They modified our design when we came across a zoning issue in a timely manner. They are accessible and continue to advise as needed. Our dream design is currently under construction, and we look forward to enjoying our home for many years."

"We were recommended by our general contractor that we should reach out to JL Thompson Design Group for a consultation to go over some house ideas we had for our new custom home. After meeting with Jason and his team we quickly saw a fit and knew they would be great partners to help design our dream home! The process of meeting with them actually went really smooth and was very timely...we had an idea on a home, and they made it happen for us. We would highly recommend JL Thompson Design Group to anyone looking to design a custom home in the 417 area!"

"Jason Thompson Design was selected by us upon recommendation from our builder, Tom Caruso, of MasterPiece Builders in Branson. Jason proved to be the right choice.
His artistic abilities, combined with his years of experience, has granted Jason the level of expertise to design the house of your dreams.
We own a very challenging lot with expansive views of the lake. Jason made the very best use of our lot to showcase those lake views. His designs also exceeded our expectations in floor-plan flow and utility. Through the back and forth communication with Jason the final design of our Master Suite has emerged, in my humble opinion, to be a Master Piece unto itself. It’s the best one I have ever seen and I’ve studied a tremendous amount of floor plans.
Jason also employs a secret weapon - his assistant Noah - who by nature of his mastery of CAD created a 3D rendering and movie experience of what our home will actually look like. Not only is it fun to see what your house will look like when constructed it is an invaluable tool to get it right the first time. It’s so much easier to change a wall here rather than 3 months into the build.
We were able to meet with Jason, Noah and our builder Tom and manipulate the renderings in real time on two wall mounted 65” monitors - prior to social distancing of course. Since then we’ve been able to accomplish the same via web sharing platforms.
As if all this weren’t enough, we’d have to say that Jason and his team are wonderful people, a distinct pleasure to work with and are the sort of people you and I would like to call neighbor."

"Jason and his team did a fantastic job designing our future home. Jason is very knowledgeable on what works and what makes sense when designing a home. He was able to provide a lot of helpful suggestions and also worked well with our builder to make sure everyone was on the same page. The 3D design portion is very helpful as well to give you a more realistic idea of how your home will look when finished. I’d recommend Jason to anyone looking to build a home and we will definitely use him again if we build another home in the future."

"We contracted with J.L. Thompson designs upon the recommendation of our builder. It was our first time building a home. Jason met with us and took good notes as the first revision that we received was very close to the end goal. We worked back and forth with Jason and Steve on several minor changes (many of them after-thoughts by us) and our plans came to life. We were very pleased with the end-result of the plans and are looking forward to building the home that they designed for us. We would very much recommend Jason to anyone that would like to design a custom home or do something creative - they have an excellent eye and offer great guidance."

"We are beyond pleased with the end results of our remodel. Jason and his team of designers were responsive and attentive to our requests. The outdoor spaces are our favorites. The expanded area upstairs added the space we needed for guests and for our boys to hang out. The exterior updates make the house look more inviting and modern. We absolutely love our home and sincerely appreciate the team helping us capture the vision."

"We couldn't have asked for a better house design experience! Jason and his team are outstanding… Very creative and innovative. All of my calls, text messages, and emails were answered immediately. His fabulous sense of humor is the icing on the cake. We interviewed several other designers… And we're so thankful we chose Jason."

"The person who recommended Jason to us is my new best friend. Jason recently designed the plans for our new house, a 4200 sq ft lake home. The final product and the process to get there could not have satisfied us more. Jason has many strong qualities, but I think the one that stands out most is his ability to "listen." Not only did he listen fully to our actual stated desires concerning the home's features, but he even seemed to "hear" things that we didn't fully explain. He then took those stated desires and unstated thoughts and converted them into a design that was exactly what we had envisioned in our mind's eye. He also was very good at meeting our desired timelines, staying within cost parameters and completing timely revisions. His personality and demeanor are delightful, and he worked seamlessly with our builder. This is the third house we have built and the third designer with whom we've worked. Jason is the best by leaps and bounds. While always ready to make useful recommendations, he is in every way dedicated to fulfilling the customer's desires and not to forcing on the customer some design that he thinks would be appropriate. We would recommend him without reservation."

"We received a referral from our builder to consult with Jason to design our new custom home. We were very pleased with the entire process. It's extremely refreshing to meet with a professional designer who can take our ideas and turn it into a masterpiece. When we first met with Jason, we gave him a cut up version of a house and without Jason's help - that would have been exactly what we would have built. Jason provided us with the experience and creativity that we lack and that is worth the cost of a designer in gold as it gets you a final product you really love."

"My wife and I were referred to Jason Thompson by our region's premier custom homebuilder, Rick Ramsey. It became very clear that Mr. Thompson dedicated incredible attention to detail and showed a great desire to design our dream home exactly as we envisioned it. When we first met with Jason, we literally drew squares and rectangles on a sheet of paper representing the basic room layout. Jason took these rudimentary drawings coupled with our ideas, countless pictures from Houzz, and his wise suggestions in order to develop the detailed plans for our home. Jason is not only a skilled, top-notch designer, but he is also a sincere, kind, and honest person. It has been a blast to work with him!!"
