Custom Design | Build – Frankel Building Group

Custom
Design | Build

In homebuilding the term “custom” is often overused, and in many cases overplayed. However, this definition is what truly defines Frankel Building Group as a company. We’ve spent 30 years building our clients’ dream homes, in any style they choose, to their individual desires, with our exacting quality, and to LEED for Homes® standards.

It starts with a conversation, a pen, and a piece of paper.

Why Frankel Design | Build?

Unlike every custom home builder in Houston, our design/build program features a streamlined in-house design department and a state of the art interior design showroom. As you describe the home you want, our team, led by senior building designer Rodney Stevens, draw it from scratch. From there our architecture team distills this sketch in final designs and 3D renderings… allowing you to see your entire home before contract, and start your home with the utmost confidence.

Design | Build Features.

While each house is meticulously designed with regards to both architectural and interior design, at Frankel Building Group we strive to maintain the highest level of quality by requiring many specifications in our homes that are uncommon to most other builders’ homes. Some are mechanical, some are structural, and some are decorative. Click to view a list of a few features included in every Design | Build home.

Nothing is "Too Custom."

From 10,000+ bottle wine rooms and indoor golf simulators to stables with cathedral ceilings and walk-in gun safes with hidden vault doors, there isn’t much we haven’t been asked to build. If you dream it, we’ll build it.

Modern on a grand scale.

This project, sitting on a little more than 3.5 acres on Rivercrest with a total square footage of more than 26,000 sq. ft.

Typically modern homes are smaller, usually around 4,000 square feet.  The difficulty with modern or contemporary architecture becomes scale, and the minimalist idea gets lost. Not with this project.

It is not uncommon for our Custom Design | Build projects to require items and finishes not traditionally built here locally. We have a great deal of experience working with designers, artisans, and skilled craftsman in other countries to bring your ideas back home. While we are extremely proud of the work our people do here locally, we have also cultivated relationships to go abroad and bring back amazing bespoke pieces to bring our client’s vision to fruition.
