J. Keith Durio has been building and remodeling custom homes, outdoor living areas and poolscapes in the Austin area for more than 30 years. He has earned a reputation for award-winning craftsmanship, state-of-the-art construction and conscientious, personal service.

After studying business at The University of Texas, Keith established Timberline Construction, a residential framing and interior trim business that helped build many of Austin’s homes and multifamily projects in the early- and mid-1980s. In 1986, The Muskin Company recruited Keith as superintendent/project manager. In his 17 years there, he personally managed the construction of as many as 12-15 luxury custom homes annually, valued at $300,000 to $1.2 million. In 1998, the Homebuilders Association of Greater Austin named him Custom Superintendent of the Year. He founded JKD Builder in 2001.

Over the past three decades, Keith has supervised the construction of more than 250 luxury custom homes and pools in some of Austin’s finest neighborhoods including:

· The Overlook Estates
· Flintrock Falls
· Woods of Lake Travis
· The Heights at Falconhead

· Lakeway
· Riverplace
· Belvedere Estates
· Bellagio on Lake Austin
· Westminster Glen
· The Reserve
· Doublehorn Creek
· Saddletree Ranch
· Jester Estates
· Westlake Hills
· Northwest Hills
