#1 FAMILY-OWNED CUSTOM HOMEBUILDER IN CENTRAL TEXAS

Driven by a passion for building exceptionally designed homes and the gratification of seeing a home go from a sketch on the back of a napkin to a completed unique, high‐quality custom home, James Giddens founded Giddens Homes in 2011. Locally owned and operated, at Giddens Homes everyone is family, from our employees to our customers and our long‐standing, trusted industry partners and suppliers. We know that building quality homes is more than the materials we source and our construction process, it’s about building lasting relationships that keep our home buyers returning to build another home or recommending Giddens as the go-to custom homebuilder in Central Texas.

The company initially began building new homes in the North suburbs of Austin, and quickly saw an opportunity for an underserved market, the estates homes on 1 acre+ homesites. Now focused on the fastest-growing counties in the state, Williamson County, Burnet County, and the Northwest corridor surrounding Austin, Giddens Homes offers a Build on Your Lot Central Texas program for home buyers that want proven, pre-priced and flexible floor plans customized to fit their lifestyle. Today, Giddens Homes offers multiple award-winning customizable floor plans including separate casitas, game rooms and garages and has been consistently ranked as Austin's #1 Custom Homebuilder and among the top 10 builders nationally for customer satisfaction.
