Our Clients

Cynthia Brown

Our clients want a rock-solid home that lasts longer, is healthier, and saves money because it’s designed and built for super energy efficiency. They focus on honest quality, comfort, and enduring value. Many are last-time home buyers. “This is the last house I’m going to build, so I want it to be right, and

Value Accurate Pricing

Do you know how hard it is to get an accurate price on a home remodel down at one of the big box retail stores?  Or, try this:  Google “cost to build a green home,” and you will get 92 million results in .20 seconds.  Pick one. Building a custom home or doing a home remodel is often the biggest purchase most of us will make in our lifetime.  And there is not an easy way to figure out what it’s going to cost. At Solluna Builders, we value accurate pricing.  We know you value accurate pricing, too. Solluna Builders and our clients value accurate pricing because we both want to know what a project will truly cost to build.  When you have confidence in the accuracy of the pricing for your new home or remodel project, you can make smart, informed decisions.

Nothing left to chance.  No cost overruns down the road....

Now I’m not going to go all Al Gore on you and start preaching about how building green is good for the environment. Nope, I’m going to talk about the specific space where you will be building, or about the house you will be remodeling. Well, let’s say you got lucky and found a lot in Austin with nothing on it. It’s in the school district you want for your children,... 


Building in a Boom Town

Recent discussions with prospective clients have got me thinking about a problem we face here in Central Texas: a shortage of lots for custom homes. I’ve heard from clients who want to be within walking distance of a certain school. Others want to be located in a certain Austin neighborhood that was built 60 years ago. Others want to build a “tiny house” in a subdivision of McMansions. I get it. These are all nice ideas. We’re still seeing impressive growth in Austin. They tell...
