J2 Build

Jacques Dezarnaulds

Jacques grew up a stone's throw from the beach in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. He worked in real estate and the wine trade before indulging his passion for high-end carpentry with an apprenticeship that would carve out his future career.

When not having a surf or enjoying all manner of outdoor activity, Jacques can be found enjoying a quiet Reschs with his family. A lover of physical activity, team and individual sports and travel, Jacques has fine-tuned the work/life balance while adhering to a mantra of hard work and a can-do approach to projects.

About J2 Build

We reckon we're the good guys. The kind that understand what you want and deliver it with a smile. That's J2. Two experienced and Master Builder accredited partners who love their work and are proud of their results.

J2 is the creation of Jacques Dezarnaulds and Joe Proud. We share common values and high-end building expertise. Joe and Jacques have forged a business based on trust, excitement, and flexibility for clients while focusing on the quality and finer details you deserve.

We began our building careers as mature age students, confident that a strong work ethic, an interest in real estate, and a commitment to quality building would sustain us. Our early partnership was formed upon individual strengths and complimentary personality traits.

For any client, making the decision to embark on a building project is a big call. We know that you need us to be pro-active and open to new ideas, at J2 we can adapt as the project advances.
