Urban Home Builders specializes in building custom homes and we have a proven system of working that helps navigate planning, permitting and the actual construction phase of each project. For over 20 years we have been building in Central Austin neighborhoods and we have a long list of happy clients to show for it.

We understand that we are not just building a house but that we are building your home. We work closely with our clients to ensure that they get exactly what they want, down to the smallest details. Urban Home Builders will deliver your new home on time and on budget—a promise that is backed by a guarantee.



In 1999 I started my own company because it was the best way for me to focus on the projects that I believed in—stunning custom homes in an urban setting. I have meticulously cultivated a reputation for being honest, thorough, and consistent. I don’t consider a project a complete success unless it has been delivered on time and on budget, and I have a client who is willing to give a word of mouth recommendation to their family and friends.

I work closely with real estate agents, architects, engineers, city officials, and sub-contractors so I can shepherd your home through every phase of the build: planning, permitting, construction, inspection, and delivery.

I build every house as if it were my own and complacency has no place in my business. I stand by each and every project.

UHB’s Code of Conduct

We guarantee fair treatment and give you a written contract with a final price. You shop at our vendors at our prices. We do not markup prices with our vendors.

On Time
If your home isn’t finished on the agreed-upon date, we will pay you $200 a day until it is. And as of today, we’ve never had to pay. Not once.

Our customer service is second to none. We communicate clearly, keep our word and, yes, clean up after ourselves!

We can finish a home on time and on budget because we know building. We explain your options for everything from materials to fixtures and help with the many choices you’ll make. We’ll stay on top of the details to help you stay within your budget, until you tell us otherwise.

As you plan your home, we can offer suggestions and solutions that make good ideas even better. Often we can accommodate a last-minute request and save significant money in the process.
