In 2013, high school buddies and Texas natives Travis Franks and Jody Alumbaugh opened the doors of WillowTree Custom Homes. We started with one goal in mind: building custom homes with integrity and honesty. Keeping this goal at the center of all we do, WillowTree has blossomed into the premier custom home builder in North Texas.
It all started when Jody, a licensed structural engineer, and Travis, a residential construction veteran, recognized the market needed a new generation of builders. We saw the need for a builder that could pull today’s technology into the construction process. Armed with an innovative approach centered on expert craftsmanship and modern technology, WillowTree brings unique luxury homes to life.
Today, WillowTree is affiliated with professional groups such as the Southlake Chamber of Commerce, Texas Association of Homebuilders and Greater Fort Worth Builders Association.
Some builders claim they develop dream homes. Yet, not many actually have homes named “Dream Homes” by independent publications. WillowTree Custom Homes is proud to have one of our custom homes recognized as a Dream Home by Fort Worth Magazine. We’ve also been voted Southlake Style’s Reader’s Choice for home builders and been highlighted in publications like Society Life.
When it comes to building luxury homes, WillowTree focuses on more than a floor plan. We believe that our clients are trusting us with their dreams. You’re trusting us to carry out a vision and build not just a house, but a home. This is a responsibility our team takes very seriously.
At the start of WillowTree Custom Homes, we decided we would always do the right things the right way. We would hold to our values of honesty, integrity and value above all else. By following these core ideals, every decision we make would be for the betterment of not only ourselves and WillowTree, but our clients. We work for you - the people who place a massive amount of trust in us.
These guiding principles have brought us to where we are today, a place we are extremely proud of.
