Austin Custom Home Builder

In many ways a new ground up build is easier than a renovation or remodel as you are starting with all new materials and a new foundation. It's fresh and perfect because you are not dealing with the sins of the existing original build.

The process of a new build always starts with the site prep and placement of the foundation on the lot. You then move into framing, setting of doors / windows, and building the roof and porch structures.

Typically in a new build, if the architect and builder stay in close touch there are not many surprises, only opportunities. An engaged relationship between the home owner, the builder and the architect ensures that all are on the same page and the project stays ahead of opportunities.

Customer Testimonial

We were very fortunate to have worked with Ford Strei Builders in the building of our house. From the first meeting to the follow through by FSB after the completion and move-in one year ago, the experience has been a fantastic one. They came highly recommended by two previous clients of theirs, and they lived up to and went beyond all expectations. From working with the design firm (Frank Welch & Associates, Dallas, TX) to keeping the project running on time and on budget, we could not have been more pleased. It was a fun and exciting process because of how well Ford Strei and his team kept us informed every step of the way and stayed on top of all the many decisions that needed to be made on our end. I have had many people comment that our house is the best finish-out they have ever seen. One of the most positive aspects of working with FSB is even after the building is complete, you always feel as though you remain a valued client. Their follow-up has been superlative as well. We join the other many extremely satisfied clients in giving Ford Strei Builders the highest approval and recommendation.Liz and Ed Tirrell
