Who we are

Davee Custom Homes is a client-focused company specializing in luxury custom home building in and around the hill country of Austin, Texas. Owner David Davee is a seasoned home builder with more than 30 years experience, and has earned a reputation among his customer base and within the trade for his expertise in producing high quality and detailed craftsmanship in each and every phase of construction. 

In addition to producing homes of unparalleled quality, it is our passion to provide our clients with leading technologies and resources throughout the building process.  Our team works closely with our home owners to ensure that their expectations are not only met but exceed their dream home vision.  It’s our mission to build beautiful custom homes while maintaining strong customer service and a high quality of Artisanship that ensures the most enjoyable home building experience.


After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from McMurry University in Abilene, Texas, David Davee was drawn to Austin's tremendous opportunity for home construction. He moved to Austin in 1983, where he spent the next 16 years building his career at Bill Milburn / DR Horton. 

In 1999, David started his own custom home building business, focusing predominantly in the Lake Travis area of Austin, Texas. He managed the company for more than 14 years, until returning to the national arena of home building at Lennar, where he held the position as Director of Construction for Austin, Texas and Division President of Central Texas, which includes Killeen, Temple, and Waco areas. 

Alas, David’s calling to continue building custom homes persisted, and re-established his custom home building business as Davee Custom Homes in 2014. Over the last 30 years, he has carefully assembled a loyal team of suppliers and subcontractors centered around building the customer’s dream home.

Community involvement

Davee Custom Homes proudly committed their time in the construction of a new Community Center at Down Home Ranch in Elgin, Texas.  Down Home Ranch is a working farm and ranch for people with Down Syndrome and other disabilities, as well as those who choose to live and work beside them.
