Company History

As a family owned and operated build on your land Texas custom home builder, Tilson has worked to earn homebuyer's trust for over 85 years. Our Texas roots date back to 1932 when Jack B. Tilson first started a home building business. We are a company that keeps its word, and have never strayed from our original commitment to being a reliable homebuilder that Texans can trust for quality. When you build with Tilson you get the home you want, on the land you love, built from the ground up. That's how we became one of the largest Built On Your Lot custom home builders in Texas.

We have Model Home Centers in Angleton, Boerne, Bryan, Georgetown, Houston, Katy, McKinney, Midlothian, San Marcos, Spring, Weatherford, and coming soon to Waxahachie.

 


"Everyone at the model home center was friendly and courteous and we loved our experience there.  It was why we came back to Tilson. "

— Sandra Fithian, Springtown
