The Jenkins Team

Leadership Team

President

Shan Jenkins has a unique ability to discern each client’s vision for their project while also bringing his vast construction expertise to the conversation. This, combined with his focus on the science of building, allows he and his team to design and build beautiful, lasting, healthy homes that are personalized to meet each client’s individual needs. Shan’s background in commercial construction, working almost 10 years for companies like Hensel Phelps, gave him the opportunity to work on large projects like Chemical Plants and even the very first Recycling Facility in Texas. Shan holds an undergraduate degree in Construction Science from Texas A&M University as well as an MBA from St. Thomas University. He enjoys Texas Aggie Football, fishing, and spending time with his family. Learn more about Shan Jenkins’ approach to building homes.

architect austinMonica graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture in 2018, when she promptly joined our team.

Construction Team

Construction Manager

Lonnie is our youngest “rock star” Superintendent. Just like owner, Shan Jenkins, Lonnie graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in Construction Science and has extensive knowledge of time-tested principles in the building sciences. He oversees all the daily construction on the jobsite. It is easy to see that Lonnie works out and takes good care of himself. What many people don’t know about Lonnie is that he once participated in bodybuilding competitions.

Construction Manager

Brian joined our team with over 25 years of experience in the homebuilding industry, most of it building luxury homes.  Brian is that rare combination of energy and enthusiasm with focus and attention to detail that are so important to a successful project. Because of his knowledge and experience, he is respected in our industry and by the professionals he works with. This makes it easier for him to keep a reliable schedule and maintain the quality of the build. Brian enjoys wood working and fixing up antique tractors in his free time. His favorite restaurants are Salt Lick BBQ and The League Kitchen and Tavern.

Construction Manager

Denny came to us from Winter Park, Colorado, where he served as a Project Superintendent building luxury homes in a resort mountainside community for 11 years alongside our very own Estimator, Skyler. While Skyler came to Texas many years ago, it took Denny just a little longer to get here, but we are so glad to he made it. He is very organized and always willing to help his crews get the job done. While visiting his projects, you will find a clean and well-maintained jobsite, a sign of a project manager who is on top of both quality and schedule.

Construction Manager

Michael’s years of home-building experience and attention to detail are obvious in his work, but his infectious laugh is what distinguishes him around the office.  Michael is a master of problem-solving and collaborating with his crews to accomplish the project goals. His ability to work with his trade partners and teammates help him to keep the project on task and allow him to exceed his customer’s expectations on every build. All of his clients love his positive disposition and willingness to handle everything for them.

Construction Manager

Colt’s years of experience have earned him the respect of those who work on his team, but it is his easy-going and friendly attitude that makes him so likable. He joined our team after 15 years of experience in the construction industry with most of those years spent building luxury homes in the Austin and Lakeway area. So he is very familiar with local codes, enforcement entities, and inspection requirements. Colt enjoys spending time with family and cooking on his “Patent Pending” Texas 7 Grills.

Warranty and Maintenance Manager

Travis is our detail-oriented, conscientious, and extremely resourceful After-care Manager. Clients have told us that Travis makes owning and living in a Jenkins home a delight. He answers questions and helps out anytime something just didn’t operate as expected. Working in high end residential woodworking and as a business owner for almost 20 years, Travis can troubleshoot and quickly handle any issue. Plus, as a military man (still serving in The Texas National Guard), he is quick to answer the phone and strives to always be on time.
