Life in a Jenkins Home

Happy HomeownersCommitment to customer satisfaction is the reason we have received rave reviews on third party verified sites such as Google and Houzz for many years.

“After we got our first set of plans, I understood it all. Their process saved a lot of time…and we hardly changed anything from that first design.”

“They wanted to build what we wanted not what they wanted, and that’s what I liked!”

“If you are considering building, my builder recommendation is Jenkins.  You’ll find cheaper, but you get what you pay for.  Jenkins built our home, and we are extremely pleased with the finished product.  What I’ve enjoyed most about working with Jenkins is the “complete” service.  You have to realize that no matter who you go with, there will be corrections and follow up work.  This is a key differentiator between Jenkins and other builders.  I’m in a small community of only custom homes, and I have heard all the horror stories regarding follow up work with other builders. With Jenkins, I simply can’t relate to the negative experiences of the other home owners/builders in my area.”


“With everyone on the Jenkins team, they took such good care of us that when they were done, we kind of missed them…”

“We interviewed I don’t know how many builders before we chose Jenkins…”


The Leblanc Family

We have been extremely happy with every process of the construction of our home by Jenkins Custom Homes. After answering extensive questions on our lifestyle, the “resident” designer designed our home. The design was so well done, we only changed approximately 10%. Even though we were not present during the construction, it was as if we were there. Jenkins Customs Homes kept us updated on any changes made to the construction of our home. Changes to the cost or the house were approved by us before those changes were implemented. They even emailed photographs of the house during the different stages. They have been wonderful to work with!  We would recommend them to any of our friends.

The Hale Family

We first saw Jenkins Custom Homes at a Parade of Homes. We loved their home and decided to interview Shan Jenkins along with other builders. We chose Jenkins to build our 6500 SF home (with additional large outdoor living spaces), and our 2000 SF guest house on Lake Travis. Our two sons also chose Jenkins Custom Homes to build each of their lovely custom homes—all on the family’s 45 acres of lakefront property. Adrian Fudge was our project supervisor—a very talented and hard working man. Between his innovative solutions and Shan’s solid engineering background, we were confident of their work. Shan is educated and experienced which is a great combination. Plus he cares about his clients and will make sure that things are right. The tradesman that Jenkins Custom Homes used did a wonderful job and we are extremely happy with our beautiful home. We love our home, have received many compliments, and we are more than pleased to recommend Jenkins Custom Homes as an excellent builder!!

The Gahagan Family

Jenkins builds a great house and is fantastic to work with!  We are very glad we used them to build our new house.  I highly recommend them and would use them again without hesitation.

The Shine Family

We looked for a home in Austin for over a month. This included 3 flights from California to Austin with a new baby. The trips weren’t fun, nor were they successful. I had given up on finding anything in Austin that met the quality that we were looking for.

After 2 weeks of putting the house-hunting on hold, I received a call from my Realtor. Her first comment was “I found it! Just trust me”. She assured me that this house would meet our quality standards. She was absolutely correct. The detail and quality of the construction continues to be commented on when we have guests. Your staff has been awesome in responding to the minor touch-ups and repairs that are expected with a new home.

We can, without a doubt, recommend Jenkins Custom homes to anyone thinking of building a home. You have a great reputation in our subdivision and many neighbors have commented on how beautiful all your homes are.

The Glenn Family

It has been two and a half years since we purchased our Jenkins Custom Home. We are absolutely thrilled with our purchase. Everyone who visits our home comments on the beauty and quality of our home.

We would like to thank you for making the purchase of this home such an enjoyable experience and for exemplifying true professionalism through your honesty and integrity. Companies run by people of your caliber are few and far between.

In the event we choose to build another home, we would love the opportunity to work with you again!

The Rodriguez Family

Many, many thanks to you and your competent team at JCH for putting our wonderful home together. We are enjoying and admiring it every day. Thank you for the professionalism exhibited all along the way. You made this an exciting and pleasant experience. Please consider us a friend and let us know if we can ever be of assistance to you. Meanwhile, we wish you continued success in business and blessings at home.

The Atherton Family

We just wanted to let you know that your team is extremely knowledgeable and that you have really good people in your stead. Watching them pour our slab was like watching a well-orchestrated symphony. Everyone knew their jobs, including your Superintendent and your Subcontractors, and they were just amazing! Everything went just exactly as planned.

The Bush Family

I couldn’t imagine having built the house with anyone else. At times it really felt like we were just having a friend build our house. In fact, I was actually enjoying the building process so much, part of me is sorry to see it end. Thanks for everything.

The Nixon Family

We love being in our new house. The building process went better than we could have ever dreamed… We think very highly of Jenkins Custom Homes.

The Edmonson Family

One of the many things that we really appreciated about Mr. Jenkins was that he always put us first. He made sure everything was exactly the way we wanted it. We love our beautiful new home, and Jenkins Custom Homes made the whole process enjoyable!
