Custom Home Builders – Austin Update
At the 2014 Austin Housing Market and Economic Forecast, local experts once again pronounced Austin’s housing market to be back in full force with the expectation of continued strength throughout the year. Lower inventories and higher demand have created bidding wars and longer build times, as the supply of labor has not yet adjusted to demand. Due to the shortage of lots and land, developers are working quickly to bring more developed property to market. Contact us to get the inside track on new neighborhoods and developments. The good news is that Austin’s economy is robust, and the housing market is contributing even more to the success of our local economy. This, of course, attracts more businesses, which in turn fuels the local housing market. So, this cycle is expected to continue for at least the next several years.
More About Jenkins
Every home builder has an emphasis, something they do extremely well because they have focused on it over the years. At Jenkins Custom Homes, it’s the art of design and the science of building a home, resulting in a balance between great design and enhanced construction methodology. This has also led to their reputation as the builder of choice for waterfront custom homes, golf course homes, and private estate homes. At the recent Luxury Home Show, one of the widely-attended seminars was “Designing & Building a Home on Waterfront or in the Flood Plain”. Their in-house Architecture team, as well as their vast engineering knowledge, lends itself to projects that warrant such expanded expertise and gives clients one point of contact throughout the entire design-build project.
Jenkins Custom Homes also has a strong history of designing and building exceptional luxury show homes. The more contemporary Jenkins 2011 Parade Home won Best Craftsmanship and Best Master Suite, along with a statewide award for Best Kitchen. The Jenkins 2010 Parade Home in Rough Hollow Lakeway was a crowd favorite featuring a virtual golf experience in the Media Room which opened up to the outdoor living. In 2009, the Jenkins Parade Home won every single People’s Choice Award in every category! This custom home also won several state-wide Star Awards by the Texas Association of Builders, including Best Custom Home in its price category. The Jenkins 2008 Parade Home, featured in the Winter issue of Dolce Vita magazine, here, won Best Custom Home in the state of Texas and featured over 7,000 square feet of luxury overlooking Lake Travis. This home also resulted in Jenkins being named Custom Builders of the Year for all of Texas. In 2006, the Jenkins Showcase of Homes entry was recognized as the Best Custom Home in Texas by the Texas Association of Builders and resulted in Jenkins being named the 2006 Custom Builder of the Year. In 2004, Jenkins was also invited to build a custom home for the Showcase of Homes. This home was also recognized with a Star Award and was featured on the cover of Frontgate Magazine.
Each year the Texas Association of Builders selects one and only one custom home builder in Texas, displaying excellence in design, construction, corporate culture, industry leadership, and community altruism. In addition to winning Custom Home Builder of the Year twice, Jenkins has also been chosen for numerous state-wide, or Star Awards, including Best Custom Home, Best Architectural Design, Best Overall Interior Design, Best Kitchen Design, Best Master Bedroom Design, Best Outdoor Living, and Best Specialty Room, adding to a long list of awards received over the years from 2001 to today.
