Blue Horse Building + Design has been providing residential construction services to the greater Austin area for 15 years. We work closely with local architects to build our clients the home they envision.

We believe that when a home is created it should be to withstand the test of time. Our focus is on the quality and detail of every step along the way. We provide services for residential construction, architectural planning, interior design, and landscape architecture.

We build a limited number of healthy, efficient, beautiful custom homes. There is no work more rewarding than building a structure and space that will make your family feel at home. It will be where you take your rest, where you start your day, where you nourish each other and your friends. Where you develop your plans of attack and where you return to regroup. The new beginnings, happy endings... it will be the backdrop to your best memories.

Every one of us has talent and extensive experience. What sets us apart is our willingness to treat each project as if it were our own. It makes every day fun for us. When people are having fun and doing what they love to do – good things come from it.

Every Client has 24/7 access to each of us. This all becomes evident when you walk into one of our homes.

Some clients prefer to plan every detail and know their total costs prior to breaking ground. Some enjoy making finish selections after the space is defined by framing and drywall. They take inspiration as the real-life character of a room is revealed.

You can come with a thousand pictures torn from design magazines or with a verbal narrative describing how your house will “live”. Either way, or combinations thereof, they are all just as exciting to us. We do recommend engaging us prior to getting too far into the design process with your architect. We work very well with architects and as the builder arm of your team we can help you stay on budget. With the help of our long-time relationship with subs we work to find efficiencies early in the project.
