Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have house plans to choose from?

We have examples of house plans available you can start with. And, yes, you may bring your own floor plan and let us customize it for you. Generally, we meet to discuss custom floor plans after you purchase a lot.

How do we determine which lot is best for us to build on?

If you’re still in the process of looking for just the right lot for your dream home, we will be happy to meet with you before your purchase to discuss options and help you determine what size home will best fit the lot.

What about financing?

There are many good financing options available for construction loans and short- and long-term mortgages. Of course, you can arrange your own financing, or we will be happy to recommend mortgage companies with competitive pricing and outstanding service.

What selections can I make?

We are a custom builder, which means you can choose just about any feature for your new home. You can select brick/stone, window color, interior and exterior paints and stain, tile and carpet, wood flooring, cabinetry, countertops, lighting, wallpaper, appliances, hardware and even outdoor living components.

Laurie Mahoney will assist you to make this a truly enjoyable process. Some clients come to us with everything already chosen, while others like to see options before making choices.

How long will it take to complete my new home?

Each home is an original creation with its own logistics. Generally, it takes about nine months to complete a custom home from groundbreaking to finish. However, other factors, including the weather, can alter that schedule. Before starting your home, we hold a pre-construction meeting with you to discuss your needs and the construction timeline.

How can we learn about your reputation?

When selecting any builder, we recommend checking if they are a member of area home building organizations, and ask for references from clients and contractors. As a member of the greater New Braunfels Homebuilders Association, Mahoney Custom Homes, Inc. abides by the highest standards of professionalism and warranty service. Numerous satisfied homeowners and several repeat clients are proud to show off our work to prospective clients. We invite you to talk with them.
