We build homes

so you can build family

Howard Custom Homes was founded on Christian principles of integrity, honesty and reliability over 20 years ago.

We are family owned and operated by J.T. and Carolyn Howard out of Mont Belvieu, Texas. We only contract a limited amount of projects at a time because we take pride in being able to spend quality time with you creating your dream home.

We are insured and are a proud member of the Houston Division Better Business Bureau (BBB), Greater Houston Builders Association, and West Chambers County Chambers of Commerce. Our work is our reputation; so feel free to call for a list of customers and references.





Is it time for an update? Love your home but ready for a fresh look? Or maybe you have a home owners claim and need repairs. We are here for you. 


Whether you need an extra room, garage addition, or even a mother-in-law suite, we have you covered.


Kitchens are where families gather and connections are made. Make your kitchen into your culinary dream where style and functionality unite.

Custom Builds

If you can dream it, we can build it. And if you need a little help creating that custom dream home, we are here to walk with you the entire way.


Double showers, handicap accessibility, soaking tubs to relax and unwind in are all a part of  creating a bathroom retreat that starts and ends your day.  

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency upgrades not only keep you on the grid, but they also keep your money in your pocket. What you don’t pay in energy upgrades you will pay out in your electric bill.

"Custom is not just a word in the name of their company. It's what they do."

Howard Custom Homes helped us through the design and financing process. Permits, drawings, banks; we’d built our original house 30 years ago so we’re a little out of touch with how to maneuver through that but Carolyn was there to guide us through. JT kept us informed ahead of time on the work plans; who was coming, what they were doing, and he kept his word on that. That was especially important since they were adding on to the house that we continued to live in. They worked hard to minimize disruptions and keep us feeling secure while they added on.

Custom is not just a word in the name of their company. It’s what they do. We had some special requests; LED lighting, western red cedar, metal roofing, 2×6 walls, dual ceiling fans, a sitting area looking into the backyard off the master bedroom and a Dog Shower in the laundry room. I think the dog shower was a first for JT and Carolyn but it came out perfect.

"They will not just build your home, they will build your dream home"

For anyone looking for a custom home builder, we highly recommended J.T & Carolyn Howard. They will not just build your home, they will build your dream home, as they did with us. After our first meeting with them, we knew they were the ones for us. You will get a true custom home with quality from the foundation to the roof and everything in between. We had heard stories about the stress of home building, but with J.T and Carolyn managing the construction you will have a worry-free experience. You just need to pick out your choices of materials, colors, appliances and ect. when Carolyn lets you know when they are needed. J.T is a hands on builder. You will see him with a hammer or saw in hand or on the back of a tractor. In the end they went beyond our expectations. Picking them to build our home was the best decision we made.

"I would highly recommend Howard Custom Homes for any construction, remodel or addition to any homeowner."

I would like to express my grateful appreciation for the quality of work, craftsmanship, and professionalism provided by your company and contractors. During the remodel and addition to my home; your workers were excellent, timely, prompt, thorough, and professional. I was not able to be at my home every day during the construction, however I felt my belongings were safe and knowing that JT and Carolyn checked the progress daily made me feel better about not being there. The finished product was beyond my expectations and the attention to detail really shows. I would highly recommend Howard Custom Homes for any construction, remodel or addition to any homeowner.
