What Our Clients Have To Say

My fiance and I worked with the Blue Horse Building & Design for a full renovation of our townhome in Austin. Although there were parts of the home we kept in tact, the task was to completely gut the garage and redo all flooring, all bathrooms, painting, plumbing, and everything in between.

We really can't say enough about how incredible it was to work with Blue Horse. Redoing your home can be a bit scary... Will the quality of work be what I expect? What if we picked the wrong design? What if we have problems down the road once they are done? However, working with Blue Horse completely eliminates those concerns. The team's attention to detail is, frankly, unmatched — I noticed in the work how thoughtful they were even about the smallest things. As surprises popped up (as they do during renovations), the Blue Horse came to us with solutions and options. During the design process, their team was able to support us and make the vision come to life.

From this whole experience, that's the one piece of advice I can give to folks looking to build or remodel — work with someone that you believe in and trust. Their transparency, incredible craftmanship, and friendly team made a challenging process incredibly easy. We are so grateful they worked with us!

I cannot say enough good things about the people that work at Blue Horse. The entire crew including office personnel conduct themselves with professionalism and most importantly, with integrity. Top notch across the board and at every level. Design, education of concepts, and execution of every minor detail. I have been in the construction business for 37 years and Blue Horse is the only company I wanted to do our project.

Blue Horse has been exceptional to partner with on our project. They are knowledgeable, helpful, professional and genuinely care about our project. Their whole team has shown a level of care we've not experienced with other builders on different projects. They respond quickly and thoughtfully, and are willing to think outside of the box. We count Blue Horse a true partner.

The entire team at Blue Horse Building & Design is incredibly talented and the BEST in the business. From concept inception, to design, to execution, Fred and Jake have an incredible team of top-notch professionals that truly cater to their client's needs and desires. I've had the privilege of working with their team for my clients, on the development side, and now on my personal residence, and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Highly, highly recommend!!!

I had my eye on Blue Horse a couple years before taking the leap to start my project. I was impressed with their portfolio of finely crafted homes and was blown away by the many outstanding reviews posted by happy clients. It’s clear past and present clients are thankful they partnered with Blue Horse to build or remodel their family home. This was paramount in my decision to select Blue Horse for my project.

The Blue Horse team takes great pride in delivering an outstanding experience as well as an outstanding product. Jake has been phenomenal at guiding me through the various stages of design and site prep and remains graciously patient while helping me navigate value-engineer options that won’t sacrifice design. His attention to detail, willingness to workshop conceptual ideas, and solutions-based approach to project management have given me great confidence that I chose the right builder for my project.

Jake, Fred, and team are an elite group of professionals who strive for excellence and are in it for the long haul. I highly recommend you give them a shout - you’ll be glad you did.

Dawn A.

We bought a new build custom Blue Horse house and lived in it for 4 years. Every detail was impressive - the way they thoughtfully kept mature trees on the property, amazing finish standards, a living space that was an incredible pleasure to call home every day. The quality of the house itself and the architecture alone would be enough for us to recommend Blue Horse to anybody looking for their next home. When the time came to move back to Europe + sell (with heavy heart!), an over zealous property inspection did its best to find what faults it could, but the house was sturdily built and they could only find the most minor, cosmetic issues. We had a short closing and worried that it might be too short a timeframe to get Blue Horse's help for the one issue raised which was covered under warranty. We were blown away by the fast and professional response from their team who went out of their way to facilitate the resale of the house.

We only wish they built houses in the UK!

I hired Blue Horse to build for me a guest ADU (accessory dwelling unit) on my property in Austin. The project was small in size (600sf) but a complex design in its modernity. The Blue Horse team did a tremendous job and their attention to detail, professionalism, and energy through all phases of the project was extremely impressive and reassuring. Special acknowledgment goes to Mike M., the onsite partner/GC, who is a seriously talented individual and was an absolute pleasure to work with. At one point mid-construction as things were cruising along, I semi-joked that we should embark on another project. Well I have no doubts that Mike, Jake and Blue Horse will continue to embark on numerous other creative, meticulous, elegant building projects. And for now, I get to enjoy the beautiful structure they skillfully built for me. A great company comprised of great individuals. 5+ stars.

Jake and his team at Blue Horse consistently provide my clients with professional expertise and the highest level of customer service. Building a custom home is a huge undertaking and even more challenging in a pandemic. Blue Horse's commitment to high quality and service has made this a most enjoyable adventure, which is how building your dream home should be.

Audrey P.

100% 5 star. Mike and team delivered. Beyond my expectations. A few items on our garage remodel and new pool ended up looking better than i had imagined. Thank you! Highly recommend!

Donovan M.

We have worked with Blue Horse since we moved to Texas in 2013. A major remodel of our home in Westlake. The construction of beautiful decks; the addition of a 1,500sf in-law unit and recently the build of a 6,000sf barn/venue on our ranch in Blanco, Texas. Their project managers are top notch, always fair and master craftsmen. Highly recommend you consider their services on any project of significance where it is important for it to be done right the first time.

We use a Professional Services Agreement (PSA) to lay out our expectations for your specific project. It is a proposal that estimates how long we think it will take to complete your project, and how much we estimate it will cost.

Once a PSA is signed and agreed to, we set up a few concept meetings.

We have an In-House Architect as well as Interior Designers available should you need help with the design.

From here we nail down the selections and overall design which will help us construct a formal, comprehensive budget.

The fees for this portion is dependent to the client needs and project plans.
