Meet Our Management Team

Tom & Sandy Crider moved to the Austin area in 1975 and Tom has been building homes throughout the greater Austin, Texas area ever since, having launched his career in West Texas.  He is known for his innovative design and construction of unique custom homes as well as, home restoration and remodeling.  Tom and Sandy have designed and built hundreds of dream homes, for happy homeowners throughout Central Texas and the Hill Country, around the Colorado River Basin - the "Sun Valley of Texas".   In 1999, along with a team of talented professionals, they founded the company that is now known as SUN VALLEY CUSTOM BUILDERS.  Their specialty is transforming home-buyers' dreams and inspirations into architectural works of art that provide unique living environments, of exceptional value, design, and livability, which are known as "The Beautiful Fortress".  Whether modest or "Austin-tatious" every home incorporates technologically-advanced products, innovative construction methods, and engineered design, providing longevity, low maintenance, and energy efficiency.

Who Does The Rest?
Many members of our team have been associated with us since 1999 and some of the relationships were established long before that.
A group of licensed, professional architects and engineers inspect every building site, to assess drainage and soil conditions, prior to any
or construction work begins. Every detail of the homes we build is designed to assure optimum structural integrity, durability and energy
efficiency. That includes utility design and site engineering. Once construction starts, our supervisory personnel monitors every on-site
task, from clearing the site, to final grading and landscaping. All structural work is inspected by our engineers, in addition to any code
inspections required. Our craftsmen are finest available in our area, and like our design professionals, many have been a part of our team,
since the construction of our first home. The goal of every employee, contractor or associate is to deliver a superior product.
