There is another home in our neighborhood built by DTH. The homeowners were very gracious and let me see their home. Construction of their home is also top quality and they spoke highly of DTH.
We love our home and all our neighbors tell us we have a beautiful home.
Travis our construction manager, went above and beyond his call of duty to accommodate and always returned our calls. He was very knowledgeable and helpful.
God blessed us with a beautiful home and grateful that we chose DTH. I would highly recommend DTH to anyone.
We built our home in Blanco, Texas. We were both nervous, but it was flawless...we had the best experience ever! I cannot say enough about the Area Manager Ryan Bruton and our Construction Manager Ryan Cummings. They are the dynamic duo, absolutely the best!!! From the first time they scrapped the dirt to start putting up all the boards for the foundation, to the very end, of adding caulking to the edges to seal the cooktop...they were with us. We knew about every single step in the process and RC was with us, helping, suggesting, correcting. He made us feel like this was HIS home. He cared.
We walked into our dream home for our final meeting and it's breathtaking. It's OUR DREAM HOME come to life! It's been a long time that I found a place where all the employees, from Ofelia helping with all the paperwork and fantastic patience during the design process, to Ruby and Elaina with Draw Requests, and "The Ryan's", no words for those two guys, they were all so wonderful. Anything we needed, they were ready, they responded promptly, they resolved or provided whatever was needed. Amazing group of people. it all goes back to the President, Mike Anderson, who is a man that cares about the customer, us, the home builder. So, so great with us.
I strongly recommend you give it a whirl. Go to one of Mike's seminars about home building. He will open your eyes to things you didn't even think about. Lots of planning and lots of research that he recommends. For ANY builder you choose. But more importantly, I strongly recommend selecting Design Tech Homes to build your custom dream home. They CARE. You will get the home you have always wanted. It was the best experience in the world for us, and I would do it again!!! Anthony and Teresa Travieso
I highly recommend them as an alternative to the cookie cutter builders we all grew up with.
I hope it is part of my inheritance...lol
Fast forward a few months and we had finally settled on some custom house plans we found online and purchased the files. Being new to the the building process we started submitting for bids to custom home builders. This process crushed our dreams due to the fact that every BOYL custom home builder we sent our plans to sent us a bid way over our alloted budget. [Enter our Design Tech Homes sales rep Brian Bromberg] I explained to him that he was our last ditch effort to build with these particular set of plans or we were going to have to scrap them completely so I needed the best pricing he could offer. To my surprise, and very quickly might I add, he came back and said he felt we could make it work. We were so elated to hear this news, yet still cautiously optimistic. After moving through all of the necessary steps we took the plunge and decided to sign a contract with Design Tech Homes. Brian was extremely patient and constructive during this process and even though he has a family and a life outside of his work, he went above and beyond to call/meet us after hours and on the weekends. Fast Forward again a few more months, contract signed and we are ready to start construction, yayyyy!!! Then came the 3 month monsoon... Clearly, no one can predict or control weather delays and anyone who has built a home knows that beginning phases of construction requires dry weather which seemed to not to even be in sight. After months of waiting around for the rain to stop we finally saw some sunlight and our current construction manager Ross Gonzales was able to get our foundation poured and frame up in the small window of opportunity that we had. Shortly after this was complete, Ross was promoted to area manager and informed us that our project was going to be taken over by a new construction manager they hired from a competitor builder.
[Enter Todd Metcalf, construction manager] Obviously this news would make any first time homebuyer nervous because "change" during a construction project can never be good right? WRONG AGAIN! I cannot even begin to explain how professional, patient and helpful Todd was to us during this process. From the time he came on to our project everything started moving like a well oiled machine. My husband and I were constantly texting and bugging him asking him questions multiple times a day that would drive any construction manager crazy and were often already being addressed before we ever asked the questions. However, Todd knowing we were first time builders patiently answered every detailed question in a timely manner and managed our expectation every step of the way. Near the end of our construction process I informed Todd that we MUST be out of our previous residence and be in our new house by the end of October. Without hesitation he assured us this would not be an issue and we should be fine. Little did I know that he jumped in to overdrive and was working around the clock to make sure to meet our deadline. He even took time away from his family to spend 6 hours with us walking through the house to make sure every last item on the punch list was noted and complete before we moved in the following week. In my mind I thought we were trying to accomplish the impossible. Closing day came, we were handed the keys and walked in that day to a perfect, finished, beautiful home! Todd was there to greet us and has even been in contact with us after the fact to make sure we are still happy and taken care of. I cannot say enough great things about him and our experience in one of the biggest purchases of our life!

I'm glad I did because Heather is a perfect representative for your company. I was a walk in so to speak and felt like the red carpet was rolled out for a long standing appointment. It seems you have a respectable company and hopefully follow through is as important to you as the sale. I look forward to coming back and gathering more detailed information to help me make a final decision.
Very friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff members.
Can't wait to get started building our dream home.
Even after closing, our requests for punch lists and warranty issues were quickly addressed. No problems with construction or sub-contractors. This was a delightful experience. Best builder in our sub-division.
Randy & I love our Design Tech home
Because we have a clear vision of our home and style, the pre-building process was challenging. Because to find the correct price, every custom choice needs a price request.
And every price request needs one to four weeks. And the DTH price has nothing to do with the market price. Be aware to pay 50% to 100% more than market value.
We missed the opportunity to speak with the designer directly to find an option which we like AND is in our price range far quicker.
Thanks for making the process so good and giving us what we expected, paid for and worked together to create. I know it was not easy but Design Tech really pulled it off well.
Our Construction Manager Kyle was a delight to work with. He was genuinely interested in our home and worked to ensure that the quality of each stage of construction was tops. He kept us apprised of progress and what to expect to be accomplished each week. He was very good about letting us take our time during walk throughs and made suggestions for us to consider along the way.
Thanks to Design Tech Homes and the professionalism of their staff, building our first home was an exciting and fun experience. We must admit there were some trepidations about making the many decisions one must make when building, but with David and Kyle, we didn't have to worry about anything. We love our new home!
We started meeting with David nearly 3 years ago to find out more about Design Tech and research your floor plan options. During all of the times we met with David, he was always helpful and courteous, and never came across as a pushy salesman. In fact, he would simply say "thanks for coming by" and send us on our way. Then every few months he would send us an email or call us to see where we were in the process. In meetings with other "custom" homebuilders I always felt pressured to make a decision quickly. Once we signed our contract with David, he continued to help us customize our floor plan (the San Jacinto) and worked with us so that we stayed within our budget (okay, sort of!). David really knows your homes and is able to work the numbers quickly.
Once we started construction, Kyle came on board as our construction manager. Kyle always kept us informed of what steps were coming up in construction and provided us with a detailed timeline of events so that we would know when each step of the building process would take place. Kyle's planning and forethought with construction was right on target - he stayed on schedule throughout the entire building process. Kyle is also courteous and helpful, and willingly answered any questions we had, no matter how silly they may have seemed to us. Kyle is a great mix of a person who knows the construction process but is also good with people, something that is hard to come by these days!
Once it came down to closing, Lisa and her team at Criterion Mortgage had many hurdles to overcome in preparing our VA loan. However, they worked diligently and were able to meet the deadline we envisioned, all with a smile!
Whenever someone takes on something as important as building a custom house, the one thing you could hope for is that you are made to feel special in that process. That is the biggest thing I take away from working with David, Kyle and Lisa - I never once felt like they had any other clients because they always seemed to be 100 percent focused on us and OUR house. Our experience with Design Tech homes has been amazing. We will definitely recommend you to friends looking to build their dream house.
