"They did excellent work. If I was building another house, the Donahoos would build it."
We decided to build our dream--the project was a 3600 square foot, 2-story house. The Donahoos were not the low bid, but we had the best product from what we could see. They built us a great house and we became friends. They did a great job!
-Gene & Mary Ehler

"Honesty is definitely one of their strong suits, and it's what separates them from other builders."
This is our first time working with Homes by Donahoo, but we've had five houses built in the past, and this was the easiest process of them all. Barb and Jerry are wonderful to work with. The design and finish are excellent on the house, and the overall construction quality and everything else has just been great.
- Harvey Dyer

"I  am very happy with the construction of the house, and watched it every day of the 10 months it took to build it as we were renting a house close by."
I was very pleased with the subs and construction; it was very well built from the foundation all the way up to the roof--inside and out. We are happy with the quality all the way from start to finish. We’ve built about 6 houses and they are by far the best to work with and the best quality we’ve had.

Our Process

Building Relationships First 
At Homes by Donahoo, Inc., we feel that it is crucial for the customer to begin meeting with the builder as early as possible - even prior to having a full set of plans or selecting a site. Many elements determine the overall cost of a project--especially in the Hill Country area where the slope of the lot can drastically affect foundation costs. If the home requires a septic system, this should be addressed before purchase to be sure one can be approved for installation by the proper authorities. We do not charge for this service. 

The Home of Your Dreams—and Within Your Budget
We prefer that our clients give us a budget range, as we can make suggestions in the plan stage to help them & their architect stay within that budget. Normally, we meet with all parties after a preliminary plan has been drawn to determine if everyone is still on track, and to share any observations we feel could be helpful. 

The Features You Want—The Pricing You Deserve
All clients are given a list of approved vendors and suppliers early in the process (long before a contract is signed). This allows them to make selections using our builder's discounts and helps the architect to know how generous to make the different allowances (such as appliances, lighting, plumbing fixtures).

Design Your Home With Us, or Bring Your Finished Plans
In addition to working with clients beginning with lot selection, we also have plans submitted to us by our customers that are already complete. Usually our company has been recommended to the clients by the architect or by a satisfied previous homeowner.

Open Communication Means Satisfied Clients
Once we have a bid completed, we meet with all parties to discuss price. Our work sheet contains over 60 items, each of which is discussed. All bids & estimates are disclosed so the potential homeowner knows exactly where his costs are.
