West Texas Custom Builders

Tim is a third-generation builder.  His family has been building in and around Abilene for more than 78 years. He has been going to construction sites since the age of five watching the different tradesman doing their jobs and gaining knowledge of various types of construction. It was always great when there was a sand pile to play in and learning to do dirt work. With that type of long-term experience and the work ethic instilled in him by his father, he learned to do things right, without cutting corners. Tim says he is still learning to this day, keeping up with new products and practices to build better houses. In 2013 he had the opportunity to leave the partnership with his two brothers and started designing and building custom homes, as well as homes that are built with his design team and are finished and move-in ready.

This is the reason he is a member past president and long-time board member of the Big Country Homebuilders’ Association, the Texas Association Builders, and the National Association   Builders.  He consistently works with these boards to help keep housing affordable and to stay up to date on new building standards while maintaining ethical practices. Tim says homebuilding is something you must love and that means helping clients make wise decisions for not only themselves but for their families.

Tim says “yes homebuilding is my business; but I get complete satisfaction when I see how happy customers are when they move into their brand-new home that I have built. It’s not just a sell. It’s personal. For me it’s all about the customer and how I can provide them a quality product that they will love and make memories in for years to come.”

On a personal note Tim and his wife Loy have been married for more than 29 years. Both came from large families, having no children except two fur babies Fancy and LuLu.  They also have 39 nieces & nephews, 33 great nieces & nephews, 10 great-great nieces seven nephews.

So, if you are looking for an experienced builder for your next home, Tim might be a perfect fit.
