We came to Comal County, Texas, after designing and building three beautiful homes in New Mexico. Not only did Jodi and Billy McDonald build our home, they also helped us find the lot of our dreams. Jodi researched “Santa Fe style” designs and together, we came up with the perfect plan.
Billy cleared the lot very carefully, preserving the trees. The lot was always kept clean. Billy has been in construction n New Braunfels for over twenty years. His crew was experienced and very courteous and helpful.
Jodi was always available to assist us in choosing colors, flooring, and décor. She was the ideal interior designer, cheerful and knowledgeable.
The building of our home went smoothly and quickly. Every time we visited the site, our soon to be neighbors would comment on our house as an asset to the community.
After the house was completed, Billy came by numerous times to check out our satisfaction. “Call me if you need anything,” he would say.
Our current New Braunfels home is the second home Billy McDonald Homes built for us. The first one he completed for us was at Canyon Lake, and it was “smooth sailing” from beginning to end.
Are you looking for the best building team in Comal County? Then come visit our Casa Bonita and we believe your search for the ideal builder will be found in Billy McDonald Homes.

In 1999, I visited a home Billy McDonald was building and was impressed with the quality and workmanship. Later that year, we met with him to discuss building a home for us. Billy was very cordial, offered suggestions and assisted us with the plans. After he gave us a bid, there was a problem with the roof line on the plans. To correct this, he added 50 square feet and did not adjust his bid. He was on the job almost every day and closely supervised the work of his sub-contractors. While under construction, Billy allowed us to make minor adjustments without any hassle. After he completed our home and gave us the keys, we did not have to call anyone back to make corrections or adjustments. We are proud of our home and can gladly recommend Billy McDonald as a home builder. Should we build again, Billy McDonald would be our builder!

Renee and I want to thank you for the outstanding job you did in building our new home. When we first began thinking about whether or not we wanted to build, we asked as many friends as possible to relate their home building experiences to us. The responses we got varied from “it’ll destroy your marriage!” to “do it yourself and save some money.” The common theme, however, was that it was critical to select a builder we could trust. We were fortunate to have a number of people we respect recommend you highly. From our first meeting with you, it was clear in our minds that you were going to be the one to build our home.
I was impressed throughout the process with the updates we received from you and by the quality of your subcontractors. Everyone was very polite and professional. Our new neighbors were grateful for the way the site was kept clean and organized. The few times Renee or I had a comment or a concern, the solution was already in the works. As you know, we finished right on schedule and under budget! Since we didn’t know the first thing about construction, it was comforting to know you were always looking out for us.
Now that the house is complete, we can begin to enjoy our new surroundings. We look forward to many happy years here and are pleased to have a home that fits our needs perfectly. Feel free to use us a reference, and know that we have and will continue to recommend you to others.
Thank you again for a wonderful job!

We are writing this letter as a testimonial to both Billy McDonald Homes and Billy McDonald, personally. My wife and I decided to live in New Braunfels during the latter part of 2001 after having resided in Texas City, Texas for over six years. It was a huge step for us. We were naturally worried about obtaining a suitable home. We decided to build rather than buy an already built home. Our daughter, Terry Hayden, suggested we contact Billy Mc Donald because she knew him personally and was extremely positive about his character and his reputation as a home builder. We made some inquiries regarding Billy McDonald Homes and heard only positive responses. We contacted Billy and immediately took a liking to him. We talked at great length about the type of home we wanted and the location we were interested in. We purchased a lot in Oak Run and my wife drew a sketch of the floor plan she liked. Billy recommended an architect and we were very happy with the finished plan he presented to us. We then had another meeting with Billy and discussed his building procedures, payment options, allowances (which were surprisingly generous), and the estimated cost. We felt so comfortable that we told him to proceed and we signed a contract.
We still had not moved out of our home in Texas City and were only able to come to New Braunfels on weekends. There was no doubt in our minds that Billy was constructing us a beautiful and well built home. In fact, nearly every mid-week Billy would call us and discuss certain features for our input so that he could proceed with building the home to our satisfaction and in a timely manner. He even called us on Easter morning 2002 to tell us he was inspecting the home to be sure everything was as it should be prior to our moving in. We did move in on April 8, 2002 and we knew this home was our “dream home.” We inspected the home from top to bottom and we found absolutely nothing wrong.
Would we recommend Billy McDonald Homes to others? A resounding YES! A better and more helpful builder will not be found anywhere. Thank you, Billy, for all you have done to provide us with a no-problem home. We love it.

We just want you to know what a fab builder we think you are. Our home is exactly what we envisioned, inside and outside, with top-notch quality throughout (oh, except for that kitchen stopper). You were a delight to work with—great attitude and sense of humor, kept costs on budget and below without skimping on anything, and always kept the home-owner interest first. We are just tickled pink with our house. You simply couldn’t have done a better job or been more fun to work with. So, all in all, we thank you for giving us exactly what we wanted. It has been a fantastic experience. We’re telling anyone we run across to use “our builder” if they want a first-class product with a first-class builder.
We just want you to know how much we appreciate all that you did for us. Many, many thanks. With warm regards,
--Nancy and Dick Banham
We are very happy with our completed home and enjoyed the construction process because of good communication, quality of workmanship and better than anticipated length of construction. We would recommend Billy McDonald Homes to anyone who does not want to take a chance with their homebuilder.
I don’t think anyone could ask for a better builder than Billy McDonald. I am currently in the final phases of building my house with Billy McDonald. It has been the easiest and most enjoyable experience working with Billy. Billy has exceeded all of my expectations in a home builder.
When entering into such a large financial and emotional process as building a house, you need to know that you can rely on your builder. Billy is personable, honest, trustworthy, and dependable. He is truly a pleasure to work with. He goes above and beyond what many builders would in order to do the job right and to make his clients happy. I never had to worry about the progression of the house. Billy was always on top of things and he moved the work along at a steady pace. He pays great attention to detail on his homes. He left nothing as simply “’good enough.” He always made sure that things were done right. In addition, he was always one step ahead of me in planning. I learned very quickly in the process just how reliable Billy is. I never had to spend time worrying about when, how, or if things would be done. Billy was always on top of things. I also would frequently rely on Billy’s knowledge as an experienced builder to guide me in choices for my floor plan and the finishing details of the house.
In trusting a builder, you also have to be able to extend that trust to all of the sub-contractors that work for the builder. Billy has a regular group of reliable, respectful, and hard-working subs. Each was there when they said they were going to be there and they worked to get the job done right. If ever there was a question, both Billy and his subs were more than willing to work with me to make last minute changes or explain why things had to be done in the way that they were.
Billy has built me a beautiful and well-built house that I can be proud to call home. I hope to live there for many years to come. If the time did come to build again, I would not want anyone other than Billy McDonald on the job.
