With deep ties and a genuine love for Austin, our goal as a local home builder has been to create beautiful, ready-made homes with close proximity to downtown Austin while maintaining affordability to our clients. Our urban homes are the perfect product for homebuyers who want to live closer to all of the action and amenities found in the city’s urban core. They are thoughtfully designed to enhance daily life through aesthetic beauty and modern functionality. In addition to offering the convenience of location, our urban homes are also very energy-efficient. We go above and beyond standard building codes to create a better product for our clients and the community.



Our clients are folks who appreciate beautiful architectural design as well as what goes on between the studs of a home. They understand that the right way isn’t always the easiest or cheapest way, and want their new home to be as great in Year Twenty as it is when they first move in. They require functional, flowing floorplans that enhance their daily life experience and admire subtle, elegant features & finishes. They embrace new smart home products & features that connect them with their homes and help limit their consumption. Finally, they love Austin and want to live close to the amenities that make this city such a great place to live.


When we arrived in Austin in March the finished house exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful. I remember seeing the smile on my wife’s face as we walked through the house for the first time. That’s when I knew that we made the right choice buying this house from GJH. A great company made up of a team of wonderful people. Highly recommended. Would definitely use again, but I doubt we’ll ever move out of our dream home. Thank you Gossett Jones Homes!


Their staff was knowledgeable, reliable, and they finished my home both under budget, and under the initial building timeline. What’s more important to me than their skill and knowledge is the trust I have in them. I trust them to do keep my interests at heart, I trust that the job will get taken care of, right, the first time, and to the level of quality that I would expect without requiring constant intervention. I felt very comfortable working with everyone in the office, and was relieved that my project turned out so stress-free.


Gossett Jones did a custom home build for me in early 2013. Their design team was also great about offering me options and ideas to keep the project in budget, which I more or less managed. The house is gorgeous and totally uniquely us.


We cannot speak highly enough of Gossett Jones. All members of GJH’s staff were professional and serving throughout the process, especially our project manager. Although the house was finished about a week later than anticipated, we were made aware of schedule changes and saw how hard they worked to complete the home with high quality. They continued to work with us after move in on final tweaks. The house is beautiful – everything we wanted and more.


I purchased a new home from Gossett Jones about a year ago. I can’t say enough good things about them…they were (and continue to be) easy to work with, professional, knowledgeable, and above all, they built a great home for me and my family. I would certainly work with them again and recommend them to my friends.


We had a third party building inspector check the house at critical stages of the construction. He mentioned that he wished all the builders he worked with were like GJH. When you are building a house, there are always little things that come up. But all I had to do was report an item noticed on one of my periodic visits or in the inspector’s report, and it was fixed in a timely manner with no fuss. In fact, every GJH employee that we worked with was very helpful, easing the anxiety of building a new home, especially from a different city. The resulting home turned out even better than we had hoped – we LOVE it.


Gossett Jones Homes built our house last year and it was a fantastic and fun experience! Everyone we dealt with throughout the process was great. They were all extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly and easy to work with. The Gossett Jones team really went above and beyond to help us build our dream home, on time and on budget. I highly recommend Gossett Jones Homes!

We embrace the City of Austin’s vision to develop a more vibrant, livable, and connected city. In support of this vision, along with our single-family homes we have broadened our scope to include multi-family, higher-density “CITYHOME” developments to allow for more affordable housing in the City’s core. As a local builder, our urban construction creates intelligent growth, redeveloping land and utilizing infrastructure in an environmentally conscious way. The result is development that recycles, conserves, beautifies and connects Austinites to their homes, neighbors and surrounding communities.

View the City of Austin’s full plan for the future of our community:



We constantly challenge industry standards to provide a better product and experience for our clients and our communities. We embrace technology and utilize innovative construction processes that align with this vision, including the use of energy-efficient products and systems that save our clients on energy costs. The result is a product that rises above industry standards in overall energy-efficiency.


With a HERS Rating of 59, our Cityhomes are 41% more efficient than a standard new home. Based on average estimates for single-family homes in the U.S. developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, this means a savings of $1,257 per year.




We also offer systems that become an extension of the homeowner, such as streaming audio, Nest Learning Thermostats, and remote home management systems that can be accessed through a smart phone. In addition to all of our technological features, the use of native, low maintenance landscapes are standard and help conserve our city’s water.
