The Jenkins Team

Certified Graduate Home Builders

Among its team members, the Jenkins team boasts over 110 years of design and construction experience! An extensive hiring process, along with the high standards set by existing team members, make it possible to attract and maintain the top talent in the custom home building industry. Jenkins Custom Homes is one of the only custom home builders in Central Texas whose owners both hold MBA’s as well as undergraduate degrees from Texas A&M University. Add to that the years of experience in construction, and this may be one of the most educated and knowledgeable teams in the industry.

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 him to design and build beautiful, lasting, healthy homes that are customized to meet each client’s individual needs. Shan’s background in commercial construction, working almost 10 years for companies like Hensel Phelps and Kellogg Brown & Root, gave him the opportunity to work on large projects like Power Optimization Plants, 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.

Construction Superintendent

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 Superintendent

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. Denny oversees day-to-day operations on his projects, ensuring quality and schedule are maintained.

Construction Superintendent

Johnny also came to us from Colorado. He has 22 years of experience in the home-building industry and a Construction Management degree from Western State College. He also has Trade Certifications as a Journeyman Carpenter, Painter, Home Inspector, and CAT Adjuster. Johnny enjoys being on the water boating and wakeboarding, and also enjoys building old muscle cars. 

Construction Superintendent

Colt is our newest quiet but highly qualified “rock star” Superintendent. 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.

Procurement Manager

Garrett handles procurement for our design and construction teams. While a project is still in design, he is busy finding the right materials for our design team. Then, once in construction, he makes sure material is on-site ahead of schedule for our construction team. Garrett has a Bachelor of Science in Corporate Communication and a McCombs Business Foundations Certificate from the University of Texas where he graduated (and also played Baseball for UT). He loves golf, hunting, fishing, and really anything outdoors. His favorite restaurants are Matts El Rancho and Ranch 616.

Scheduling Manager

Marisa runs the schedules of all of our projects, both in Design and in Construction.  She meets with our in-house design and construction teams weekly to discuss and monitor progress. Marisa graduated from Texas A&M with a B.S. in Construction Science and a minor in Business. She has always had a passion for luxury custom home construction with previous experience in College Station. She enjoys fly-fishing at her family’s cabin in Colorado and helping her fiancé at his farm in Temple. Marisa also enjoys cooking for friends and family. She loves to bring treats to the office; her chocolate chip cookies and Texas sheet cake are always a big hit! 
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, helps clients understand how their new home operates, 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, is always on time, and always tells it like it is.
