With the reputation John Houston has, starting there was the obvious choice.

As a newly graduated college student who was ready to start the next chapter in his life, Austin was in search of a home to make his own. With the reputation John Houston has, starting there was the obvious choice.

At the time Austin and I were just dating. He was busy starting his business and I was off attending school in San Marcos, so we knew he did not have the time and commitment it takes to build a home from ground up. But that’s not an issue with John Houston Custom Homes because each house they build is truly custom with every detail thoroughly thought out. We fell in love with a spec home in Texanna Ranch which is a beautiful gated community! He wasted no time closing on the house and with the help of the awesome J Houston staff, he was able to move in by the end of the month.

And this is really where OUR story begins.

Christmas time rolled around and I was in town visiting home for winter break. One night when I came over, he greeted me at the door with a bouquet of roses. He grabbed my hand and led me to the lit fireplace. It was there he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes and we were married that summer. Now we share this beautiful home that already holds so many beautiful memories.

As our love and family (some day) grow in this home, so does our relationship with the John Houston team! When our one year warranty rolled around, every issue we were concerned with was addressed in a timely manner, no matter how big or small. It was easy to see that they not only cared about the quality of our home, but also about the people who lived in it. They show they care, but they also go above and beyond to show their Christian values which is so awesome to see in a world that is so worried about being politically correct.

Although we do not know where the future will take us, or if our growing family will allow this house to be our “forever home”, we do know that John Houston Custom Homes and their wonderful staff are our “forever builders”.
