Now more than ever, there has never been a more important time to love where you live. As a Build By Owner Homes client, you will experience a fresh approach to custom home building. Here are just a few of the special qualities that make Build By Owner different than other builders:

  • Transparency – On the job, you are dealing with the owner and not an employee or sub-contractor. We are with you throughout every step in the home building process to ensure that your goals are met on time and on budget.
  • Personalized Experience – Being a smaller company means we are on the job as you hired us to be not running around to a dozen other projects and trying to keep them all straight.
  • Unmatched Support – We know that the biggest problem between homeowners and builders is poor communication. Our customers have told us that they feel more comfortable working with us because we take the time to listen to what they are saying and act accordingly. Our strongest point is our ability to maintain outstanding communication between homeowners and our sub-contractors which makes a strong well-run team all working towards the same goal – quality custom home in Houston.
  • Save Money – Houston custom home builders charge a fee on materials, on the subcontractors, and work they do. We will charge you OUR COST, and charge you only a flat fee per square feet. We have access to wholesale prices from many providers, which results in huge savings and top quality at the same time.
