We can Build Anything
The best way to describe what we do is to show you what we’ve done. We can build almost anything you can dream up. We can build tack rooms, bunkhouse’s, show barns and equipment storage areas.
We pride ourselves on our focus on animals needs. At a ranch in Ft. Bend County we integrated both hot and cold water in the livestock washing areas as well as heater systems for drying animals in cold weather. We have built locations for animal auctions with state-of-the-art computer and PA systems.
We put the same pride and care in the building of our barns and barn/home combinations as we do in our custom built homes.
What, you may ask, is a barndominium? It is a building with inside living quarters. It can be designed to fit the country lifestyle with the options that can incorporate a garage/shop area, carport and porches to create a multipurpose country home.
Barndominiums are affordable, low maintenance, energy efficient & durable.

One of the ranches Ed has developed is close to Houston, in Fort Bend County, yet so removed from the city that you see the most distant stars clearly at night. Among the ranch holdings are an 11,000 sq. ft. home bordered by the Brazos River on two sides; an all-weather, 40,000 sq. ft. Equine and Bovine Center, capable of seating 500 for dinner; a show pavillion; several barns and the ranch manager’s residence.
Both the home and Equine and Bovine Center are located between Brookshire and Simonton, Texas. A helipad and a 3,200 ft. grass airstrip are available for air travelers.
This ranch offers superior facilities for horse and cattle auctions, a breeding operation, and for entertaining.
Santa Fe Design
This beautiful ranch home embodies the strength of Santa Fe design, found in homes scattered among the pink hills of northern New Mexico amidst the scraggly green pinon trees at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The 11,000 square foot house features an extensive collection of Western paintings, sculpture and texture art placed among beautifully designed rooms and spaces. The high-beamed cealings and floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the living area are straight out of a hacienda in Santa Fe or Taos, but the cattle trophies and leather furnishings are pure Texan.
A game room and bar offer a place for the boots ‘n jeans lifestyle, while a formal dining room with high-backed cowhide chairs and an early 1800’s antique buffet create the ultimate setting to entertain a head of state.
The kitchen features his and her’s cooktops and grills surrounded by custom oak cabinetry and Arizona tile floors.
For absolute comfort, two master bedroom suites are built on either end of the house, with luxurious his and her’s baths and spas. Three guest bedrooms with full baths, separate servants quarters, and a quiet wood-paneled study complete the ranch house.
Each room features built-ins, and the entire home is protected by a complete secuirand sprinkler system. The ranch house is maintenance free constructed with a standing seam metal roof and American-made brick.
Complimenting the family living and entertainment values of the home are lighted tennis courts and a sparkling pool with a bath house. A satellite dish, video center and music and communications system complete the home entertainment center.
Special spotlights and tract lighting highlight the Western art collection.
The Equine and Bovine Center
A 40,000 sq. ft. air-conditioned Equine and Bovine Center is the focal point of this beautiful ranch. All traps and pastures in the 400 acre ranch are designed so that cattle and horses can be easily funneled into the working area behind the Center.
There is an elevated steel ring with its own sound system and a digital lighted tally board to keep the crowd informed on current bidding. The center can double as a 500 seat dining room. Portable pens are also available to display livestock in the covered area adjoining the center. Quarter horse cuttings can be held behind the sales area. The arena can even be used as a tennis court or automobile showroom floor.
Separate stalls for horses and a group of spacious pens for show cattle provide additional space to showcase animals or ready them for auction. Wide concrete aisles make viewing the animals a pleasure and create easy access to and from the grounds. An area in the rear of the building houses a breeding chute and holding pens for cattle and horses up for sale. Both hot and cold water are connected in the livestock washing areas and heaters are available for drying animals in cold weather. Both the Center and show barn are protected by comprehensive fire and security system.
A separate area of the ranch has been set aside for future horse training and racing tracks.
