Building Experience

50 Years Experience with Building Codes:

Have you ever picked up a code book? They’re thick, heavy, and the test only covers a tiny bit of what is in that code book. Young builders get stuck all the time with code violations that have to be changed, costing you time and money simply because they didn’t know better. That doesn’t happen at Ron McGuire Custom Homes. We’ve had thousands of inspections done in different municipalities. This means we know how to make sure a home passes inspections. We know the subtitle differences between the municipalities surrounding Austin and we know what they want in a house before they give it the passing grade.
This also means that we know the inspectors. We’re not “buddy buddy,” but they know that we’ve been building custom homes for a very long time and, in a few cases, we know the code better than some of the young gun inspectors out in the field today.


50 Years with Reliability Building Homes:

You’ve heard the expression that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. And in 50 years of custom home building, Ron has learned that it takes more than book smarts to build a quality custom home. Each home, each piece of land, each vendor, and each carpenter has a personality. Something that they’re good at and something that they’re not so great with. We’ve been building homes with these folks for so long that we know who to trust and what projects they’re going to excel at and which projects are best left to another carpenter.


50 Years of Building Market Trends:

No matter who you are, building a custom home is an investment. Perhaps this is your retirement, perhaps it’s something of value to leave for the children. Perhaps you’re simply building to sell. We’ve been in the home industry for years and we know what it takes to build a home that’s going to survive and retain values when the housing market changes. Just take a look at who was in business before this last housing market crash and who isn’t there now. Now stretch that across the last 50 years and you’ll see that the list of people that couldn’t figure out how to be successful in this market is HUGE. The fact that we’ve been doing this for 50 years means that we know how to work not with just putting up a great custom home, but we also know how to cope successfully with the housing market’s ebbs and flows.

    Before the industrial revolution, architects and builders alike lavished as much attention on creating an attractive ceiling as they would sketching out the right floor or wall treatments for a home. Since the baby boom, however, ceilings have fallen from favor with most builders and home owners - with local builder Ron McGuire being a notable exception... Read More Custom Home Reviews

    The most important question to ask a previous customer - Would we select Ron McGuire to create our next custom home? A definite YES. Over the years I have purchased 6 new construction homes in various states, so the building process is not new to me. It is always a team effort between homeowner & builder. Working with the Ron McGuire team has been such a positive experience...

    We were first time home builders in 1994 and the moment we met Ron McGuire, we knew we were in good hands. Ron treated us like family…….. We felt comfortable and knew we could trust him. We had some innovative ideas and he worked hard to implement every one of them in our dream home.

    Ron built my house in 1999 and I am still tickled to death with it. I have a little bit of a creative mind and had some out of the ordinary, somewhat unusual requests. I gave those to Ron... Read More Custom Home Reviews




    Even though I'd been planning on building my dream home for years, I just didn't know what to expect when it came to choosing someone to build my first custom home - but I'm glad I chose Ron McGuire Custom Homes. But just because I knew what I was looking for in terms of my home, but I wasn't sure what the process would be like, and of course I'd heard it could be a long & stressful one...
