Already have a lot you want to build on? If you currently own a lot in the greater Houston area or plan to purchase a lot and build your own home, contact us. We will be there for you every step of the way, helping you build the home you always envisioned for yourself!
If you have yet to find a lot to build on, tell us what you’re interested in and we’ll find the perfect lot for you. We have several lots available in our existing communities, but we can also help you look in other areas. We have extensive knowledge of available lots in Memorial, Briargrove, River Oaks, Tanglewood, West University, the Heights, the Energy Corridor, and Katy, as well as larger homesites all over the greater Houston area.
The experienced and knowledgeable team at Kickerillo Companies will work with you every step of the way. In the initial planning phase, you will sit down with our in-house design team to discuss your family's needs, the size and style of your home, and the budget of your project. We will then get to work on a preliminary sketch and floor plan that will allow you to envision what we can build for you. The final set of plans will be drawn by our architect, Sullivan, Henry, Oggero, & Associates.
To accommodate the varying desires and tastes of today’s custom home buyer, we offer four distinctive home tiers from which to choose. These four tiers will help you understand how our sizing and pricing work, but there are no limits to the style or budget that we can build for you.
The final step of this process will involve creating a detailed estimate, which includes labor and materials, that is also created in-house with one of our experienced estimators. Once we are in agreement on the scope of your project and pricing, we will go into contract, and you will meet with the builder assigned to your project. Depending on the model and style of the home, construction can range from six months to one year or more. At Kickerillo Companies, we strive to complete the construction of a new home in the least amount of time in order to meet our buyer's needs without sacrificing the quality.

We pride ourselves on the high standards of construction that has been the hallmark of Kickerillo Companies since its inception in 1957. We are known for the quality foundation and slab we pour for each home, as well as anticipate and prevent as much foundation movement as possible. The quality of materials and construction expertise are the reasons why Kickerillo frames stand up to Houston’s humid climate. Kickerillo uses genuine stucco that is applied by hand, not sprayed. Our tenured roofing professionals have worked together for decades and have our process down to a science and an art. There is no substitute for the Kickerillo level of craftsmanship in any new home or remodeling project.
Your new home is complete! Before you move in, you will have a final walk through with your builder, noting any questions or concerns you may have. Your builder will go over your extended warranties and explain maintenance care. After this walk through, you will work with our team to schedule your closing.
