“Keith, Donna and I want to sincerely thank you and JKD Builder for the excellent job you did on our new spool. It is such a nice place to relax after a long, challenging day at work or over the weekend. We are thoroughly enjoying the spool experience and plan to recommend JKD to any of our friends who are considering such an improvement to their home. Thank you for making this a reality.”

Jeff and Donna Brinkley, The Hills of Lakeway

“I just love working with JKD Builder. Amazing customer service and the quality of the work is excellent. Keith always goes above and beyond with the workmanship and process of any job. I have worked with him on many occasions from custom new builds to remodels. If you want a true builder that has been in the business 25+ years and works and lives in the community, Keith is your builder. No job is too big or too small. By the way, his crews always build the most beautiful pools and outdoor living spaces! Perfect for the Texas climate!”

Melissa Webb, Austin

“There is that moment, a feeling that overcomes you as you experience it. It’s a moment that says “ I can relax now, I am home.” That is the feeling we get when we walk into our JKD Builder home. From the minute we close the garage doors and enter the hall to the spacious living area, the world behind is shut out and the quiet interior beckons. No detail has been left unattended to. From ample storage tucked into every free corner, to a unbelievable walk-in pantry to a master closet that rivals a bedroom in size, the scale and livability of a JKD home is unparalleled. It’s a feeling that you can only know when you have experienced it.”

The Bushns, Woods of Lake Travis

“Our home that Keith Durio built will forever be some the best chapters of our lives. With its open spaces, beautiful stone surroundings, and perfect layout; we worked, laughed and played as a family. From countless numbers of swim parties, birthdays, New Year’s Eve bashes, Halloweens, holidays, and never-ending family and friends in and out that beautiful wrought iron door, it was a part of us. A tearful goodbye to our JKD Builder home on Robin Court and a new adventure led us to California a few years ago. But, as fate would have it, we have moved back and the first person we called was Keith. We can’t wait for the next chapters to unfold in our home.”

The Evans, Lakeway

“My husband and I hired JKD Builder last summer when looking to expand/replace the deck on the back of our house. Keith was fantastic to work with! He was always on time, got the job done quickly and always made us feel like we were his only client – though I know he had many more. When looking to construction a brand new kitchen in our house this year we, again, turned to JKD for his help on the project. Keith jumped right in and was there every step of the way. My husband and I changed our plans for the kitchen midway through and nothing fazed Keith. He was at our house every morning explaining what the tasks were to be accomplished each day. Everything was done ahead of schedule and within our budget. We will definitely use JKD Builder for our future renovations as well. Thanks Keith!!!”

The Brinkmans, Lakeway

“I am a designer who works with Keith Durio. One of the projects we worked on together is a home that just recently was published in Texas Home & Living. Keith is a perfectionist and true professional with his clients. He also knows how to stay on top of the tradesmen to make sure that the job goes smoothly and is completed on time. Keith is typically never behind schedule which is not the norm in our industry. He and his wife Sue are also great people and fun to be around. We laugh a lot when we work on projects and they have high moral standards. Keith and Sue are similar to me in the sense that they genuinely have a passion for what they do, care about their clients and want to provide those clients with a quality product. Keith and I have discussed the possibility of working together, again, in one of the upcoming HBA Parade of Homes. We had a blast the last time we did this and I would be honored to work with him on another one.”

“Keith Durio of JKD Builder has been building the homes we have designed for over 10 years. I have always found him to be conscientious building a quality home for a reasonable price. I would not hesitate to refer him to clients.”

Elliot Johnson | AIA, Images of… Architects

“Keith Durio / JKD Builder is constructing our dream pool. They presented us with a design that was beyond our expectations and progress on the pool is going at lightning speed. When we began this process, there was never any doubt that we would use Keith and did not even go out to bid with other contractors. Keith has demonstrated that he is a trustworthy professional and goes above and beyond for his client! We are thrilled so far with our project and will most definitely use Keith again for Phase 2 of the project, an outdoor kitchen. I have worked with many contractors over the years being in the line of work that I am and I am honestly say, this man is worth his weight in gold.”

Angie Thielemanns | Lakeway

“Legend Lighting is a vendor/supplier to JKD Builder and we highly recommend them! Keith Durio is an excellent builder and we have found him to be extremely organized and attentive to every detail involved in the construction process. Keith is a person of the utmost integrity, in addition to being one of the most fun and personable guys you would ever meet. He has great relationships with his homeowners and suppliers throughout the entire construction process. Keith is a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a custom home builder!”

Kim Neal | Legend Lighting Inc.

“We wholeheartedly give JKD Builder a five star rating! We used JKD Builder for a remodel of our kitchen and to build our outdoor living area. Keith Durio was true to his word and the result is a masterpiece. Our pool is gorgeous and just what we wanted, and the outdoor kitchen a dream. Our project came in within budget and ahead of schedule. Keith’s creative suggestions actually saved us at least $20,000. We have since used him for several other projects. We couldn’t have done any better in choosing him and his people to complete our project. We have used 3 different builders in Austin for three different houses and wish we had found JKD Builder years ago!!”

The Thompsons | Lakeway

“JKD Builder was instrumental in the construction of our second home. Keith was organized, professional, and clearly experienced. He was onsite for the day-to-day progress and ensured that everyone stayed on task and produced a structure that we are so proud of! We would invite JKD Builder to complete any future construction project, regardless of size.”

The Becketts | Flintrock Falls

“It was love at first sight when we found our JKD custom built home already completed. We loved the interior design details, the highest quality of construction materials, and attention to detail inside and out. We requested a few modifications and Keith accommodated us perfectly. It was and always is a pleasure to work with him. This is our favorite home so far!”

Denise and Sam Coursen | Flintrock Falls

“Living in a JKD Builder home is truly a pleasure. The comfortable design, quality
materials and attention to detail are apparent and enjoyable every day. It’s an investment you can live in.”

Jim and Roselee Eads | Austin

“We literally fell in love with our JKD Builder home as we slowed down to check the For Sale sign out front…. Texas Traditional architecture, bluebonnets blooming along the winding driveway, and over an acre of native land in a lake access community. As a transplanted Texan married to a Southern California native, the house called me home , and my husband figured it all out in just a few minutes as we toured the gracious and livable home- life should be like this. I did not have to talk him into moving back to Texas with me. The house and the land did that.”

Rick and Sarah Carpenter | Woods of Lake Travis

“Our home is beautiful. We bought it nearly completed, with all of the selections made. JKD Builder selected colors and options that are appealing to everyone. We have always received prompt and attentive service to any need we have had. Keith is very professional and a genuine pleasure to work with. And, Dean is very personable. He has always been willing to help us out, regardless of when or whatever the circumstances. The quality and workmanship of JKD Builder is among the best in the marketplace. We couldn’t be happier with our home.”

Ruston and Heather Vickers | Westminster Glen

“When we learned we were moving to Austin, we extensively researched the custom-built, pre-owned, and new spec home market in the Greater Austin area. After looking at all our options, it was an easy decision to purchase our custom home from JKD Builder. The home we fell in love with was already nearly complete. The attention to detail, workmanship, finishes and features were impressive. And Keith’s willingness to work with us on the last few items for completion convinced us we made the best decision. Service after the sale with “punch list items” and the builders warranty has been superb. Both Keith and Dean are very responsive. We’ve been in our JKD Builder home since 2006, and love showing it off!”

Howard and Mary Manning | Westminster Glen

“JKD (Keith Durio) contracted the building of an addition to our new existing house. It was on time, within budget, and was completed with very high quality. The addition looks like it is part of the original construction, matching it perfectly. Now we can enjoy our pool cabana, bath, and storage, in our backyard living area. I put JKD at the top of my list for any future building needs, and highly recommend JKD.”

Randy Sisk | The Reserve at Hudson Bend

“Just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how pleased we are with our new home. The finished product is absolutely fantastic. The attention to detail that you and your contractors provided have made for a beautiful home that I am sure my family will enjoy for many years. It was a pleasure doing business with you. All of the suggestions that you made during the construction phases of this project did nothing but enhance the appearance and value of our house and property. Your knowledge of the home construction industry and the subcontractors you used made for a very pleasant experience.

As you well know this is not the first time that Elaine and I have had a custom home built. But this indeed is the nicest and was the easiest. Mostly due do your hard work and dedication to providing a quality product at a reasonable price.”

Dan and Elaine Ulrich | Saddletree Ranch

“Our experience building a home with your company was a pleasure and this is in large part due to Keith. Keith is available. When we needed to meet about a concern or question, he was there. He was patient, informative and friendly. Keith is thorough. Keith knows his business and was on top of every issue before we could notice it. Almost every time we mentioned something we were concerned about, he had already scheduled the remedy of the situation.

Keith is organized. If we needed any information, he had it available. Keith is tough. It takes a person of unique skill to deal with so many subcontractors and keep a project running smoothly, Keith knows how to blend charm with a tough attitude to get the job done. And, Keith is knowledgeable. He knows what is necessary to build a home and how to accomplish it.”
