JGB Custom Homes was founded in 2010 by Jake Badger. Jake graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2001 and started his career in the homebuilding industry in Houston, TX, working for a production builder. After four years in Houston, he returned to Austin and went to work for a well-known custom builder.
Over the next several years, Jake built 20+ custom homes in the multi-million dollar range and quickly established himself as a leader in quality control, customer satisfaction, and budget management. By 2007 Jake solidified himself as a premier builder in Austin when he was recognized as Custom Superintendent of the Year by the HBA.
From its beginning in 2010, the focus of JGB Custom Homes has been first and foremost the will and needs of the client. The goal of JGB Custom Homes is to make the building experience enjoyable, working with architect and client to transform an architectural drawing into a HOME.
Jake Badger runs all of the construction at JGB Custom Homes. Building homes is what he loves to do. Lynda Badger, Jake’s step mother, manages the office: coordinating paperwork, keeping contractors’ contracts current, and handling payroll. Mike Vilece, Jake’s friend of 20 years, works to build relationships with clients, architects, and investors. Mike will also ensure JGB Custom Homes continually gives back to the great City of Austin, which has been good to us over the years.
