When we bought our lot in Mystic Shores in 2003, we tried to envision ourselves in a new home, but we had no idea how to make our dream come true. We met Travis several times over the years and went into several of his homes. We were always impressed with the workmanship and attention to detail. Mike is a craftsman and handyman and he especially appreciated the sense of perfection we found in Travis’ work. So we felt that we had met the builder we needed for our home in the hill country.
We were still working in Houston in 2010 when Travis built our home so we were unable to watch the daily progress. We trusted Travis to keep us up to date on the progress of our home and to follow our building requests. Travis kept us in the loop via email, phone calls, and pictures. So when we did travel to Mystic Shores to see our house, we knew what to expect.
All of the contractors we met who are associated with Travis Mitchell Homes were kind, helpful, and easy to work with. They all mentioned that Travis is a perfectionist who will not put up with less than their best work. Travis provided us a budget to work with in choosing items like lighting fixtures, doors, tile, and water faucets, and that helped us so much in choosing what matched our taste. Janet in particular appreciated the help Travis’ design expert gave us in making selections and in setting up appointments.
We were hesitant to embark on this process because of the horror stories we heard from friends who had built homes and because the Mitchell Homes we saw far exceeded our $300,000 budget. We trusted Travis to build a quality home and he assured us he would help us stay within our budget (which we pretty much did).
Our new home is more than we expected and Mike especially is impressed by the quality of all aspects of construction. We would recommend Travis Mitchell Homes to those who are not intimidated by having a perfectionist building their homes. Travis added features (like crown molding and vaulted ceilings) that we did not request (but really like), and he would tell us if an idea would detract from the appearance or quality of the home. In the end, he produced a home that we love and that we feel would sell quickly if we need to leave the area.
