Serving the Greater Houston Area
UBuildIt Clients Say it Best
“UBuildIt is a unique residential construction model where the homeowner is the project manager, site superintendent, and has many GC functions. Essentially UBuildIt provides the sub network, the bank interface and consulting/expertise as needed. The Houston Franchise is owned by Mark Jeffrey. For those willing to give it the time and take on the learning, this approach works. The Houston UBuildIt team resources are top notch – thanks to Mark, Annette and Paul for all the expertise, mentoring and patience along the way!” Ron – Check out my Blog on our home project and my home below

Client Success Story! Sue built two homes for her daughters, next door to each other, in a gated community on the west side of Houston. “The houses cost approximately $539,000 each to build. Also, we put berms in the yards and mega plants and trees. We put in the sprinkler systems and we had to add a grinder pump. None of this was in the budget numbers. The culvert was not in the budget either.There were tap fees, road usage fees, etc. I had the soil tested within the footprint of each house to be sure it was compacted properly. I also had the concrete tested from each delivery truck to be sure the proper psi was achieved before I would let them pour…….. They were so worried I would refuse a concrete truck that doesn’t have the right mix. The houses are sitting on foundations that far surpasses the requirements. All of these costs plus others I can’t think of right now are included in the $539,000″
Living Area 1st Floor = 3967
Living Area 2nd Floor = 1653
Converted Attic Space = 556
Garage, Porches, Lanai = 1,954
Total = 8,130 price per foot = $539,000/(3967 + 1653 + 556) = $87.27/sq.ft.
Living Area 1st Floor = 3794
Living Area 2nd Floor = 1851
Converted Attic Space = 580
Garage, Porches, Lanai = 1,746
Total = 7,971 price per foot = $539,000/(3794 + 1851 + 580) = $86.58/sq.ft.
More Client Raves! “Words simply cannot express my appreciation and gratitude! In a world of countless compromises, it is refreshing to deal with an organization with the attention to detail, level of professionalism, and a commitment to excellence. Add integrity that is second to none and one has the receipe for an organization that is destined for stellar success” Thank you!! Steve – Clear Lake Shores.
UBuildIt – Houston is located at the corner of Westheimer and Loop 610 in the Beal Bank Building, next door to the Container Store. We work with families in the Greater Houston Area on new construction as well as major remodeling and additions. We have completed projects in areas such as West University, Bellaire, Spring Valley, The Heights, Montrose, Downtown Houston, Garden Oaks, Magnolia, Waller, Richmond, Galveston, Pearland, Suncreek Estates, Bender’s Landing, Pasadena, Clear Lake, Friendswood, Katy, and many, many others.
We recommend that people interested in UBuildIt come in and meet with us very early in the process. We understand all of the issues that should be considered in a project, including finding lots/land, arranging financing, and selecting plans or working with an architect. We remind our clients that “architects know what it costs to “architect” and builders know what it costs to build”. This is our way of saying that we can help make sure that you are selecting a plan or designing a home that will fit your budget. So, give us a call and come meet with us. We will start you off on the right foot and probably save you a lot of time and money just from the first meeting.
