About Us

a letter from chris

Chris Thomas Custom Homes, Inc. has been in business since 1985. With over 30 years experience, I have earned a title throughout Hood County as a Quality Builder. My team of professionals and myself will work diligently to meet all the needs of the customer. With a no nonsense approach to solving problems, this is accomplished daily. I have also developed a reputation for getting the job done on time, within budget, and of the utmost quality.

I personally take responsibility to ensure the customer’s satisfaction. I, personally, am at the job site regularly to make sure that everything is on schedule. Over the last 32 years I have built a firm relationship with my Sub Contractors, and continue to use the same ones year in and year out. I strive to build a strong relationship with my customers by communicating with them every step of the way. When the job is complete, if there is a reason for call back, I always try to respond as quickly as possible.

Chris Thomas Custom Homes, Inc. has built many homes in the Granbury area. On this website I have included a list of references. You are welcome to call and make an appointment to go by and look at the homes, and see for yourself the quality and workmanship that goes into each one of our homes.

Thank you for your interest in Chris Thomas Custom Homes, Inc. We look forward to building you your quality home. If you have any questions please call our offices at (817) -776-8202.

"Mel and I offer our highest recommendation of Chris Thomas Custom Homes. Chris came highly recommended as we began the process of looking to build on our property in Hood County. Chris took the time to listen to our desires for the end state we wanted and then performed them to exacting detail. We came in under budget, on time and did so from a time zone away. This reflected highly on Chris' professional and personal integrity and we offer our recommendation without reservation of Chris Thomas Custom Homes."

"Chris Thomas Custom Homes did an outstanding job building our home! They are true professionals in every way. Having the home built on time and budget was extremely important to us, and they hit the mark perfectly."

"When we decided to build in the Granbury area I asked a banker friend to recommend a top notch builder. He recommended Chris Thomas. We had Chris build our first home in 2007. We were impressed with the subcontractors he used, but most of all with Chris and his commitment to immediately correct any issues. When we decided to build a larger home and move full time to Texas, Chris Thomas was the only call we made. During the build we discovered a major subcontractor had done some hard to see substandard work. One call to Chris and he was on site and simply said ,"it will be redone and it will be right" - no stalling, no excuses. That is why I recommend Chris Thomas. We have been in our home for 3 years now and we love it. The quality of the build is evident to everyone who walks in the door. "

"I've worked with a number of homebuilders during the 35 years I've been a residential builder. It's extremely rare to find a builder like Chris Thomas who not only understands the entire construction process, but also appreciates the fine details that are essential when building a truly custom home. While his overall knowledge of construction is quite impressive, the high quality of craftsmanship is a result of his ability to select the proper individuals who actually perform the work. Although he demands perfection, he does so in a way that instills pride in their various trades. This insistence on absolute quality, along with the extreme amount of patience and understanding that he offers to his clients, is why I'm always pleased when Chris Thomas Custom Homes is building one of my designs."

"We chose Chris Thomas Homes because of his outstanding track record and his involvement in the community. We have known Chris for many years and have always been impressed with his work. When building our home, he used professional contractors and finished in the allotted time. We have lived in our home for a year now, and we still love it!"

"We love our house. When we first started contacting builders about building a home in rural Somervell County, we ran into two obstacles - "That's too rural" and/or "Your house isn't big enough to be worth it". When we talked to Chris Thomas, he had no problems with either. Before we retired, we handled insurance claims. I handled mostly plumbing part failures and my wife handled commercial and residential construction defects, so we knew what to look for. One of the other things that caught our attention about Chris Thomas is that he has worked with the same subcontractors for years. This is very important because while your home builder may be very knowlegable, more than likely he won't be pouring concrete or swinging a hammer. We were also able to be on site for most of the construction process and we were very impressed with the quality of the materials and workmanship of the subcontractors. The office staff is very knowledgable and always helpful. Kudos to Julia for putting up with us. Overall, we are extremely happy with the work Chris Thomas Custom Homes did for us and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. If we ever needed to build another home, this time we would only need to make one phone call. ."
