Houston custom-home builder and construction company

Located in southwest Houston, Derek James Homes is a custom-home builder focused on personal attention with competitive pricing and exceptional quality. Derek James Homes has grown its business through referrals. Owners Derek Olander and James Andreatos have a combined 45 plus years of experience in the construction industry. They’ve used the same subcontractors for more than 20 years developing trusting relationships with all of them.

Both owners have built their own homes and hundreds of others. They have experienced the complete process. They can directly relate to their customers and enjoy building the personal relationship with each of them. To ensure homes are completed on time, Derek James Homes will only build a specific number of homes at any given time. Every day, one of our owners will visit your home to ensure construction is on schedule and being built to the highest of standards.


At Derek James Homes, we can be your turn-key solution for your new home. We can find the lot, draw the architectural plans, design the interior, pull all permits and build your home. If you already have your plans or selected an architecture firm, we’ll build to their specifications. Our reliable partners can help you during every step of the process. We have built a wide-variety of sizes and styles of homes and can cater to your specific budget and design.

We pass on all builder pricing to our customers. If you want to find and purchase your own appliances, fixtures or flooring, we’ll use them. Our goal is to build you a high-quality home at a competitive price.

We offer two ways to financially engage us on your project. Our lump sum cost is a flat fee. Our fixed priced variable cost allows us to build your home for the best price, giving discounts if projects come in under project or ahead of schedule.

When you’re ready to build your dream home, give us a call. Let’s meet and talk about your goals and turn your dream into a reality. Call us at 713-816-5590 to explain which suits your needs.
