Jeremy Sterling Bishop

Jeremy Sterling Bishop grew up in the construction industry where as a child, his father was a trim carpenter and cabinet maker.  An interest in both construction and art led him to pursue a career in architectural design.  After graduating from college he went to work as a draftsman for a local architecture firm in his home town of Morehead City, North Carolina and soon moved to Wilmington North Carolina.

After working for a Wilmington, NC architect and owning his own design firm, Sterling Custom Construction was started out of a desire to see quality design built the way it should be. When building a home it is important to have a builder who can understand and execute the design envisioned by you and your designer.

Jeremy’s experience gives him the unique perspective needed to carry out detail oriented projects and he is a firm believer in using both quality craftsmen and materials.

Janice Bishop

Janice Bishop was born on the coast in Durban, South Africa. She spent her early childhood living in an area of Durban called “the Bluff”. She enjoyed spending time exploring the local tidal pool at “Cave Rock” and escaping the local predators, namely monkeys and snakes. At age 10 she moved with family to the Wilmington area, quickly embracing the similar coastal lifestyle. Being both artistic and analytical, Janice was drawn to the field of Graphic design where she spent 5 years as a typesetter and designer. Later, playing to her analytical side, she spent 8 years as an office manager for a local Wilmington accounting firm. Today when not chasing our two beautiful children, Gavin and Sydney, she runs the office side of Sterling, making sure that our clients finances are organized and well taken care of.



Absolute attention to detail in renovating our home.! Jeremy thought of things we had not considered during the re-construction which saved us money and time in the long run. He re-used many materials we thought were not salvagable which also saved us money. We feel that Jeremy took the same care with our home, as he would have with his own home.

The quality of his work is excellent, and he chooses his subcontractors with care for the same level of excellence. We were absent during the construction, but Jeremy kept us up to date almost daily with photos and phone calls. His interior suggestions for lighting, flooring, cabinets, etc. made it seem as if he were our own interior designer!

We could not be more pleased with our new home, and are enjoying it! We would not hesitate to recommend Sterling Custom Construction for new construction, or a renovation.
