Welcome to Jimbo Carr Custom Homes

 Building castles by the sand since 1995.



Jimbo Carr has been in the business of crafting stunning beach houses since 1981 when he started his journey with Hank Gregory Custom Homes. It was during this time that Jimbo honed his skills and gained valuable insights into constructing beautiful beach homes along the Texas Gulf Coast.

In 1995, Jimbo took the leap and ventured out on his own, establishing himself as one of the premier custom home builders on Galveston Island. With our office nestled right here on the island, our team possesses an intimate knowledge of Galveston Island building codes.
