Ask any owner of a Will Steed Home and you will get the same positive response, “Steed Custom Homes delivers a quality custom-built home that exceeds our expectations.” Please call us for a list of our references. We will be happy to provide you with a list of our homeowners so that you may contact them with your questions. Here are a few things our customers have to say about us:
With the help of Shawn, Shane and Meri, we were able to design and build our future home. Will had a list of sub-contractors, but we were free to go to any store or subcontractor to make both interior and exterior selections. To say that we are happy with the result is an understatement..our family and friends LOVE our new home and so do we. What started as a “Dream” has now turned into our “Dream Home”!
Deana and I want to let you know that we are loving our new home that you recently built for us. The attention to detail and craftsmanship of our home shows how well you and your subcontractors work together as a team for a superior product. Also, we are appreciative of you and your team (Shawn, Shane, and Meri). Your honesty, attentiveness, and sense of responsibility are impeccable. We heard so many horror stories about building a house, but from the first time we talked we felt we had a partner in the process that wouldn’t let us down, and you didn’t disappoint. I’ve heard there are two ways to tell if someone is truly happy after a project of this size: (1) if you would recommend them to family and friends, and we would recommend you, (2) if you are friends when its finished, Deana and I are proud to call you our friends.
Thanks again for an amazing home and a great experience,
Kenneth and Deana Tinkle
Good Morning! We just wanted you to know we are LOVING our new home! Tonia brought her photographer yesterday and we were thrilled to show it off! We have really settled in and are expecting flowers and landscaping next week. Our family loves it and so do we. We have been singing your praises to all that inquire about our house. Thank you again for building our dream house!!
-Rob and Christy Kilmer, Pecan Plantation, Granbury
Will and his subcontractors are exceptional. This is our fourth custom home and we have never experiences this level of management and attention to detail. We made one visit for selections and project walk-thru. Will kept us informed with frequent updates and detailed status reports. His web site keeps track of construction progress and financial details. We moved into our beautiful home ahead of the initial schedule.
We are very satisfied and proud of our Will Steed home.

Reputation – Will has an excellent reputation encompassing a number of different disciplines including banking, title companies and the local real estate industry. That favorable reputation is built on providing consistent, high quality service over an extended period of time.
Selection and Retention of Subcontractors – Will works with a select group of subcontractors that he has used over many years. Without exception, every subcontractor spoke highly of Will especially about the standard he sets for the quality of work and how he interacts with each subcontractor. That positive and enduring relationship results in a stable subcontractor base that produces a high quality home.
Construction Experience and Diversity of Portfolio – Throughout the building process, my wife and I were impressed with Will’s familiarity and in-depth understanding of new construction techniques and products available for new home construction. Many builders claim to be custom home builders when, in actuality, their home designs represent variations of one or two basic layouts. In contrast, Will truly builds one-of-a-kind homes that are varied in architectural design. This diverse experience provides confidence in knowing that your vision for a home will be realized.
Communication/Follow-up – Before, during and after construction, Will remains accessible to the Customer and consistently returns phone calls – a real plus in today’s business environment. As with any product, defects in material and workmanship are bound to occur. What separates Will Steed from many other builders is his diligence and desire to quickly correct issues to the Customer’s satisfaction.
In summary, my wife and I enthusiastically recommend Will Steed as a builder of choice for a new home. If the occasion arises and we were to build another new home, then without question we would select Will Steed as our builder.
We just wanted to send you a (long overdue) commendation on the construction of our home. To be honest, the excellence of your company, while always appreciated by us, was recently made even more apparent.
Our daughter & son-in-law recently closed on a lovely home in Houston, built by a highly regarded builder in that area. Their house is bigger than ours & more expensive than ours. But the attention to detail & quality of workmanship in our Will Steed built home far outshines their home. In every respect!
Your customer service, from initial response to calls & requests to punch list follow-up – not to mention the superior construction process, from slab pour to key hand-over… all of it makes us SO grateful that we chose you as our home builder. And if we ever decide to build again, we will definitely call you.
Thanks again, Will & Shawn & your entire staff!!
Betty and I would like to compliment you and your staff on the building of our “retirement” home in Pecan Plantation. There aren’t enough words to describe the asset Shawn Cessna has been throughout the entire process. As the building supervisor he truly acted in our behalf to produce a quality built home that met our desires. Shawn functioned as if he was building our home as his home. He was demanding of sub-contractors, listened and provided great input while being amenable to try new and different aspects he had never seen or performed before. In our opinion Shawn is Steed Custom Homes.
Many builders say they are a custom home builder, but you and your staff showed a difference from all the other builders we interviewed. The reason you standout as a “custom home builder” can be seen by your willingness to try new and different building methods, materials, designs while obtaining the right quality sub-contractor for the job. A very important aspect too was your use of technology with Co-Construct. Co-Construct allowed us to build our home some 50 miles away while providing a documented record of the entire process for both parties.
Betty and I are exteremely proud to say “Steed Custom Homes” built our house.
I’m hoping it’s never too late to say ‘thank you’ for the awesome job that you and your team did for us! The total remodel of our master bath couldn’t have turned out any better. We so appreciate everyone’s attitude of ‘we’re not finished until you’re completely satisfied!’ Your workmen were all professional and considerate and courteous. It was a real pleasure doing business with you and Shawn!
We have always been told that building a home was a nightmare for most people and that they would never do it again. We couldn’t disagree more. We have enjoyed the process, the people, and the experience and would indeed do it all over again if the need arises. Our new home has fulfilled all of our early expectations, from design right thru the finishing touches provided by the stone masons. Will provided us with a tremendous framework from which to work and our superintendent, Shawn Cessna, insured that the final product met and even exceeded the plans and specs in many cases. Again, thanks to Will, Beverly, Shawn and all the rest of your staff and subs for a job well done.
He called us to get our input before making the slightest change even though we would not have noticed it anyway. He didn’t have to do this but he did. You could say Steed Custom Homes are exemplary, master builders, above the standard, outstanding service, skilled craftsman, and many other superlatives – and you would be right. But that is not what separates Steed Custom Homes from the rest.
It is the confidence you gain from your relationship with the Steeds that they have your best interest in mind and the attention to detail, expertise, and guidance they offer you at each stage of the building process that separates them from the rest. It is their overwhelming exuberance to the commitment of excellence and the fact that they will accept nothing less that separates them from the rest.
Finally, it is the friendship and trust you will gain from working with the Steeds and when you are handed the keys to your new home and Will and Jack Steed walk out the door you will truly say, “They are master builders.” It was a wonderful experience.
Most people who build a custom home describe how trying it is. We had just the opposite experience. Will was great to work with. We enjoyed the building experience, and most of all, we enjoyed seeing the house of our dreams go up right before our eyes. Steed Custom Homes has stood behind their work in every way. The service has been top notch!
We highly recommend Steed Custom Homes to any and all who ask about our Granbury building experience. Thanks again, and Good Luck with your future endeavors. I feel certain that Steed Custom Homes is destined to become Granbury’s most sought after home builder.
Pros: On time, on budget, attention to detail, helpful comments in preparing home design and choosing finishes, full attention to YOUR home, great sub-contractors, excellent superintendent, and full follow-up to punchlist & warranty issues.
If we built another home, we would choose Will Steed again!
These words are what come to mind when I proudly tell others about Steed Custom Homes. Choosing Will Steed was one of the best decisions that we ever made as Will and his Team build an absolutely marvelous home. The craftsmanship and attention to detail seems unmatched in the Granbury area. I interviewed several builders before making the perfect choice to have Will build our home. The Steed Team set the bar for quality and ethics, and surpassed it at every step! Their ability to help us visualize our dream home and their commitment to fulfilling our dream exceeded all expectations. This is the fourth home we have built and Will is the first builder I have ever come across who actually runs a job like a true professional. The house is absolutely beautiful and we are proud to call it our home. We unconditionally recommend them!
