Owner’s Message

My name is Andy Crites, the founder of Texas Country Charmers and I have been a Central Texas builder since 1973.  My wife, Joy, and I have been married 61+ years and have 4 sons, 12 grand children and 3 great-grand children.  I have been blessed beyond measure in my family, friends and career.  And now, I want to help others accomplish their dreams of home ownership and a fuller life.

The struggles folks face today to achieve home ownership is harder than ever before. New home prices are so high many people have given up on their dreams.  A thirty year mortgage is the biggest debt most of us will ever have, and a home is the most expensive purchase we will ever make. Just imagine, owning your home debt-free and having true freedom. Today, land owners are building smarter and going back to a simpler country life style. Shell homes and Barns with living quarters, called barndominiums, are very popular. Some folks have realized that land is more important than a house on a tiny lot.  Not only that, God stopped making land years ago.

With me, it’s possible to achieve your country dream without putting you in a financial bind. If you choose to build one of my affordable shell home plans on your land you will save a substantial amount of money. You can finish the inside and save thousands. With a pioneer spirit, planning, and a little elbow grease, you can acheive home ownership. You can work with the local subcontractors and finish the inside your way and on your time schedule.  The money you will save will help secure your family for years to come!  “Make the right choice”

In addition to building shell homes, Andy works hard to provide quality wood barns through Barns Across Texas, and supplying home designs and barndominium plans through EdwinHomes.com.
