About Us

By wisdom a house is built, And by understanding it is established; Prov.24:3

Gustavo Guerra


As a native San Antonian, with nearly 20 years experience in the building/design industry I have personally witnessed the exponential growth our city has experienced, and watched in awe as particular areas of town have developed into trendy hot spots for young professionals to call home as well as rural communities explode with young families and retirees. Regardless, of where you are in life, it is my personal goal to help design and build a home suitable to your lifestyle.

I first began as a draftsperson for a large commercial firm and eventuated into residential custom homes. I came to enjoy residential builds because I could work with individual clients on a more personal level. Designing for multiple builders in San Antonio & surrounding areas I gained invaluable knowledge of the Custom Home Building industry.

Eventually with my wife Camille, son Andrew and daughter Alannah; we ventured out on our own as an independent Drafting/Design Firm where I found a true understanding of what it meant to manage and run a profitable business. Always involved I take great pride in my community, whether serving on the board of directors for our local youth programs or volunteering for church I am a firm believer in "The Golden Rule" with great hope that it would be shared by all....Mathew 7:12
