Our Story:    Lone Star Custom Homes was founded in 2006 by Jay & Amanda Strickland.  What started off as a part time project, rapidly turned into a full time home building company that has built over 150 homes to date.  

What we’ve done:  To make the home building process as simple and easy as possible, we invested in an online builder software system to provide real time access to all of the details of your new home.  You can track your construction  schedule, selections,  budget, ask questions, and even see progress photos all from the convenience of your computer, tablet, or phone.

Why Use Us:  Building your new home is an exciting and important endeavor.  Whether you’re at home, work, on the road, or even on vacation-Lone Star Custom Homes is the only Texarkana builder to put all your information at your fingertips so the building process is as enjoyable as living in your new home.  “You’ll Love Where You Live”

    Lone Star Custom Homes has exceeded our expectations in craftsmanship and their attention to customer needs. This is evidenced by all that come to visit our home. LSCH’s willingness to communicate with us during the whole construction phase was extremely reassuring to us. With great pleasure and without any reservations, Darla and I highly recommend Lone Star Custom Homes as the “Builder of Choice”, whether it is your first or next home. Thanks Jay and Rob for your commitment to excellence in all that you do.

“Easy” is not a word often associated with building a home, but every step of this process with Lone Star Custom Homes was just that. We worked with a wonderful design team that not only helped with colors and fixtures, but also helped us watch our budget. When we asked for something that could be considered an “add on,” Jay and his team were always quick to find something else that we could save on and make up the difference. The custom ideas that we had for the home were always approached with enthusiasm and a “make it work” attitude. Jay and his team kept us in the loop throughout the entire process. Everyone working on the home was always careful to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. We could not be happier with our new home and experience of working with Lone Star Custom Homes.
