Al Jones Architect
Before Douglas Allison Jones (Al) was even aware of what an architect really was, he knew he wanted to be one. His love affair with architecture started in fifth grade in Laurel, Mississippi and he never looked back.

Al began his career in the profession at Miss. State University before he transferred to the L.S.U School of Architecture. After three years there, Al left to seek an apprenticeship at the foot of one of the South’s great masters of architecture and design – Mr. A. Hays Town.

For whatever reason, or possibly out of fear of another sit-in, Mr. Town gave Al a project that very day to work on. It was a four-story commercial building, which Al promptly designed into an eight-story building. The client loved it and Mr. Town gave Al the job on the spot earning minimum wage in 1966.

The renowned architect mentored Al and ultimately led him to open his own practice in 1973. Mr. Town’s sense of scale, proportion, materials and attention to detail and design is ever-present in Al’s work to this very day. In fact, many often confuse Al’s designs for a A. Hays Town home. It’s an error Al is more than willing to overlook.

Today, Al Jones is a 40-year veteran of architecture. His designs can be seen all over the country and most prominently in the south. He is joined at his firm today by his two sons, John and Ben as well as his son-in-law Tim Landry.

An Al Jones Home Is Honest & Authentic
An Al Jones home is not trying to be something it is not. It is proportional and scaled. It embodies the true character, charm and markers of its original style.

It Has A Sense of Permanence & History
An Al Jones home, even brand new, appears to have a story to tell. There is history behind the home. It’s as if the neighborhood grew up around it and not the other way. It is firmly rooted.

Is Uses Reclaimed Materials As They Were Meant To Be Used
Using reclaimed materials is not unique to Al Jones, but the way an Al Jones homes incorporates reclaimed materials is different. The materials are sourced differently, hand picked differently, crafted differently and ultimately used differently. They’re used for what they were originally designed for, with purpose, intent and authenticity.

It Is Defined By Quality Craftsmanship
Al Jones has always stood for quality and value beyond what is offered in residential design and construction.  We look and work for perfection in our projects.  We are very careful in selecting a builder that will build with the care and expertise we expect.

It Has Curb Appeal…
An Al Jones home stands out from other house designs.  They are detailed carefully and have proportion and scale that give them appeal even to the untrained eye.

…While Being Rooted In Tradition, With Modern Convenience
An Al Jones home is made to be lived in. It is made for families with modern floor plans, designs and convenience. An Al Jones home doesn’t sacrifice comfort and livability.
