Tod and the entire Arbogast Homes team delivered a highest quality, durability, and luxury custom home for our family. The build experience was low stress while being comfortably exciting. Tod consistently demonstrated his experience, competence, and integrity throughout the build and continuing support multiple years after delivery.
Top Notch Builder
Arbogast homes is a top notch builder! We had heard nightmare stories about builders and went into this experience very cautiously. Thrilled to say we had no nightmares and instead a wonderful experience. Tod has become a friend. Our dream home was a huge project and not usually where Tod builds but he embraced both challenges and the finished product reflects his skill, attention to detail and patience. Our home is the only home Arbogast Homes built in our neighborhood and it is evident. Most of our neighbors are having foundation issues or plumbing issues and we have had none of those problems. Arbogast Homes not only makes the bones of a house strong they help you make it your dream home. We wanted to use antique doors and Tod and Jake (our superintendent) willingly figured out how to make them work. If our home wasn’t our dream home we would definitely use Arbogast Homes to build for us again.
Experienced and Professional
Tod Arbogast built our dream home which exceeded expectations, within a budget and timeline that was reasonable. His team, including contractors, was at all times experienced and professional. I would use Tod and his team again should we decide to build another home.
Quality and Class
The entire team at Arbogast Homes is exceptional, through and through. We felt so comfortable and confident in the abilities of Tod, Shauna, Katie and Mike throughout the whole process and could not imagine trusting anyone else to help us build our dream home! We were amazed at the quality of our home down to the framing. Tod always seems to go the extra mile and never takes shortcuts when it comes to quality and class. Communication with Tod and his team was second to none. They made us feel like we were more than clients and truly saw our vision.
Thank you so much for building this dream come true!
Building With Ease
My husband and I have built 6 homes, 3 of them custom homes. We did not interview any other prospects to build this last house. I had seen several of the homes that Tod had built and I knew he was who I wanted to build this one. Thankfully my husband agreed, and we were not disappointed! Not in any of our previous building experience’s had I been so at ease with a builder and his staff. Tod always made me feel comfortable in asking questions and yes even making changes after the process began. I go into other custom homes and I honestly can’t believe the difference in quality that we have! I wouldn’t blink at using Arbogast Homes again.
From start to finish Tod and his team made it an enjoyable experience.
One of our main goals was to enjoy the experience of building our new home. Tod personally helped us position the house on our lot . We worked on the plans together to make sure it was exactly what we wanted and would be comfortable and livable . The communication with the team was excellent. We are delighted with our new home and accomplished our goal of having an enjoyable experience building it. We will always be grateful to Tod and team. We are proud to have an Arbogast home!!
Seasoned Custom Homeowners Are Fans
Since we moved to Austin in 1990, we have completed four new homes. The previous three were not bad experiences and we were aware of the negatives of building a new home. Our current home was built by Tod Arbogast, and we are, and will always be, great fans and advocates of this supreme, high end custom home builder. From the transition with our architect, meetings with the Home Owners Association, to planning and scheduling targets, the process was seamless. The most important mention I had for Tod on our initial meeting, was to not have many, if any, surprises. We asked for immediate updates during the timeline, as changes and revisions do and will happen. To his commitment of constant quality control, and his team’s immediate communication with my wife and I, it was a pleasure to have them create our vision from a house project to our Home.
Award Winning Dream
As first time custom home owners, we were faced with the daunting decision of who should build our dream home. As we interviewed multiple custom home builders, it was apparent right from the start that Tod Arbogast did not assume he had the job. Instead, he wanted to ensure that we were well informed of the custom home building process as a whole. Tod is an extremely honest individual that was with us every step of the way throughout our home building journey. We were very involved home owners, visiting the site many times a day it would seem, and we were always greeted kindly by all staff working for or on behalf of Arbogast Custom Homes. In the end, we not only received our dream home that was so eloquently envisioned by Geschke Group Architecture, but we were fortunate enough to win the HBA Max Award for best custom home in Austin, TX. We are grateful to Tod and his team for this unforgettable experience!
A Cut Above The Rest
There are any number of custom home builders in Austin that build exceptional houses – Tod is certainly one of those – but what sets Tod apart is his focus on the client. We moved into our Arbogast Custom Home in the summer of 2016. It was a pleasure working with Tod at every step in the process. Tod was personally involved and our satisfaction was always the top priority. Tod and his team were professional, courteous, honest and knowledgeable. Visually, there is no denying the quality of construction and finish of our house. What we didn’t expect was how quiet and efficient the house would be. The windows, doors, spray foam, hvac system, and tank-less water heaters reduced our energy consumption by 2/3 – even though the house is larger than our previous one. As I said in the beginning, while the product is exceptional, it’s Tod’s engagement and focus on the client’s experience that sets him apart. Ultimately, Tod didn’t build a house – he built our home. A home we will enjoy for many years to come. Thank you Tod!
Flexible Building Options
We were first time home builders and were always leary of building due to horror stories we had heard about the experience.Tod understood our concerns and took a special interest to ensure we were comfortable all the way through the process. We particularly liked his Good – Better – Best approach to different building options. It allowed us to make informed decisions where we wanted to spend a little more and not where we felt it didn’t matter as much. We also liked the weekly walk through meetings at our house where we were greeted by not only a clean worksite, but a willingness to solve any challenge we might of had at that time with our build. The best part is the quality of the finished product as we absolutely love our new home. For us, having the right builder, made all the difference. Having never build a home before, I would have to say, we would build again with Tod.
We were very pleased with the construction of our house, and since we’ve moved in, Tod has continued to be responsive and communicative. For us, building from over 1,000 miles away, communication was the most important part of the process. Tod constantly talked to us, shared photos and kept us appraised of any issues. He stuck to the timeline, made appropriate adjustments when needed and delivered on his commitments. Tod also has a very talented crew who take time to discuss what they are doing and why and who pay great attention to detail. Having talked to several neighbors in our community, Tod’s reputation, both from the homeowners and other builders, is excellent. The house exceeds our expectations and we’re extremely pleased!
Always Available and Willing To Help
We purchased an Arbogast Custom Home in 2007 and of the four homes we’ve owned it was by far the best built home we have ever lived in. The craftsmanship and attention to detail made the home easy to fall in love with from day one. After five years of living in the home, we had very little to maintain and the quality of the construction continued to be evident. As great as the home was, the best part of owning a home built by Arbogast was the service provided by the builder. Whenever we had a question, needed something looked at, or wanted advice, Tod was always available and willing to help. It was a great relationship and we never felt like Arbogast wouldn’t stand behind his work. Tod Arbogast has set the bar high for building a great custom home, and from what I’ve seen, the other builders just can’t compete!
Exceeding Expectations with Local Realtors
As local Realtors my wife and I have worked with a number of quality custom home builders in the Austin area. When it was time for us to purchase a new home we talked to several builders before we chose Arbogast Custom Homes. Tod is knowledgeable, diligent and was a pleasure to work with throughout the build process. His hands-on approach gave us a comfort level that we needed as he maintained a consistent level of quality down to the smallest detail. We love our new home in Belvedere and the vision and professionalism that Arbogast Custom Homes provided was paramount to the overall success of the project. The service after the sale has exceeded our expectations and for these reasons we feel very comfortable recommending Tod and Arbogast Custom Homes to our friends & clients.
Quality in Environmentally-Friendly Build
The design and beauty of this modern hill country style home captured us at first site. In our search we visited many properties, but kept coming back to this home. The layout features a spacious, open flow, perfect for our family and for entertaining guests. And the quality of the build is second to none, with environmental insulation materials to reduce energy bills, and an impressive finish-out. In fact, when we were purchasing the home, the inspector commented that this was one of the best-built custom homes he’s seen in the area.
A Partner With Integrity
We were on a short schedule and expected the highest quality and integrity from our builder — Arbogast Custom Homes exceeded our expectations. Tod was a great partner throughout the project — providing us input and guidance every step of the way. Tod made our home building experience easy and enjoyable. As we have moved in, the attention to detail and quality throughout the home is abundantly evident.
Great Craftsmanship and Design
We are all moved in and love our new home. In addition to the craftsmanship, Tod also has a great eye for the design, like using Restoration Hardware quality to accent the house. He has continued his commitment to service and support to our new home.
It’s been over three years and the distinctive quality and workmanship of our home is still apparent.
A Timeless Classic
We are enjoying living in our Arbogast Custom Home. The tasteful details and upgrades make it a timeless classic. We love the architectural design built into this home that makes it unique and stylish. As our lifestyle changes we look forward to designing and building a home with Tod that will meet our changing needs. As a satisfied Arbogast Custom Home customer I would highly recommend Tod with helping you build the home of your dreams.
