We build with the intention of the structure lasting to carry the history of the owner past his or her time.

– Steve Wauson, Home Builder and Owner

Experienced Professionals

With over 30 years of experience as a builder of high end custom homes, we have had the honor of working with many prestigious architects, designers and craftspeople on both residential and commercial projects. 

Unique Approach

We take a caring approach to home building. Instead of building as many houses as possible, we concentrate on a few special projects to ensure that each will be unique and smart. We typically build only one new home at a time.


Our trademark is meticulous attention to detail and adherence to old world craftsmanship. We will build any style home, but never depart from the gold standards that define the Craftsman tradition: uniqueness, strong construction, beauty through simplicity, subtlety and dignity of style, ecological responsibility and comfort.

Green Building

We are committed to ecologically responsible building practices. We prioritize the use of natural materials and take every measure to maximize water usage and increase thermal efficiency. Our landscaping solutions offer a lush and water wise alternative to xeriscaping. We offer consulting on issues pertaining to green building and green site work. 


New Homes
Although Craftsman homes are our passion, we can build any style of home that is in keeping with the standards that define the Craftsman style. We typically focus on building one new home at a time to ensure that each project is special and unique.
We are primarily in the business of building new homes, however we take on smaller projects as time allows. Remodeling demands patience, realistic expectations, methodical planning and thorough cost analysis.We work with you and the architect/designer of your choice to arrive to the best and most cost-effective solution.
Our extensive and varied backgrounds in the construction industry make us uniquely qualified to provide consultations as well as expert testimony on issues related to green building and green site work. We can also consult with you on the prevention, abatement and remediation of mold, asbestos, lead, radon and other hazards. 
"The [Buckeye] house's woodwork has a level of craftsmanship and detail you don't see in other Austin high-end homes. I've worked on homes that did not come out this nice that were priced much higher. I would market this house for over 3 million dollars."

"The interiors throughout provided Steve Wauson and his team an opportunity to exhibit their considerable expertise in Arts and Craft construction detailing. Exquisite mosaics, tile work, cabinetry and carpentry of the three story stairway are reminiscent of California and Prairie Craftsman styles pioneered by Greene and Greene and Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 1900’s."

"The interior work, specifically the columns, beams, stairs, and balustrades are nicer than the work we see in the churches that we design."
