Richard Bright

Richard Bright has been building his experience as a home builder for over thirty years. He started his home building career as a framing contractor in southern California. Richard and his family moved to Austin in 1993. Richard took a construction superintendent position with a national home builder and later moved up to a management position. After a few years working in the corporate environment Richard realized his passion was building homes not working his way up the corporate ladder. In 2000 he opened his company and began building custom homes in Austin. Richard is very “hands on” and personally oversees the construction of every home

Why build a custom home?

This is the most important questions a family should ask when considering building a home. When you choose to build a custom home, you can design a home that is built to fit your needs. You get to choose the location, size, and style of you home you will live in. We go to great lengths to get a thorough understanding of a custom home client’s wants and needs. Richard works together with the client to design a home that fits their needs and their budget.

  • Flexibility - Flexibility is a desirable trait that a client should want from any builder they consider. It is common that owners will need to make changes after construction begins. We have processes and systems in place to accommodate those unexpected changes so they can be seamlessly implemented to make your dream home a reality.
  • Timeliness and Cost Control - Timely completion of your custom home on budget is one of our top priorities. We understand that time is money. Delays cost the builder and the client money. We work diligently with the owner to foresee possible issues that could cause delays or cost overruns and work through or around them to keep the project on schedule and on budget.
