Building Expertise

Any visitor to Lake Travis knows it has a special magic that keeps people coming back. Boating, paddleboarding, hiking and zip-lining are just a few of the activities that bring Central Texans to its shores. With so much to enjoy outside, you need a Texas home builder who can make the indoors as exciting as the surroundings. You will also want a team who can carve out your private niche sequestered from the populated hotspots. At Mangum Builders, these priorities fit into our areas of hard-won expertise.

From our decades of experience working on Lake Travis projects, we have developed several specialized skill sets, including:

  • Custom construction. Many of our clients choose to use the drama of a spectacular lake view in their build, but beyond that our Lake Travis projects vary widely. Where one client may see Lake Travis as the perfect backdrop for a Mediterranean-inspired villa, another may dream up an asymmetrical, glass-walled modern design to capture all the sunshine they can get. Whatever your Lake Travis dream home looks like, we’ll use our know-how to make it a reality.   
  • Land development. Developing lakeside land has special considerations, like ensuring that your property is prepared for a rise or fall in water levels. At Mangum Builders we have experience helping clients with these aspects of building in Lake Travis, as well as with building lake access for boating and other water recreation. We can also help ensure that your property has the level of privacy you desire, whether you are right on the lake or set back in the hills. These are just a few ways we help you develop your land for a Lake Travis property that fits your vision.
  • Green building. Many of our Lake Travis clients are outdoor enthusiasts who care about protecting the green spaces that make the area unique. As an active member of Austin Green Builders, we have made it our business to help clients reduce their environmental impact by building with sustainable and energy-efficient materials. We also have developed expertise in building rainwater collection, geothermal and renewable energy structures for clients who wish to have off-grid or hybrid resource solutions.
  • Remodeling and renovations. Lake Travis has been a draw for Central Texans since the 1940s, so there are many interesting properties that could become spectacular with the help of the right home remodeling contractor. As members of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Mangum Builders has the skills to make the updates and realignments that will make your diamond in the rough shine again. 
  • Ranch construction. With plenty of undeveloped land around Lake Travis, your ranch dreams can spring to life here. And Mangum Homes is just the builder to help you. We are experts at creating ranch properties that reflect the unique styles of our clients. Whether you want a ranch that doubles as a yoga retreat or houses your classic car collection, let us put our skills to the test and make your dreams a reality.
