Why We Build Custom Homes and More
Ferrier Companies (Ferrier Custom Homes plus our remodeling and commercial arm, Ferrier Builders) is a family-owned, custom design-build firm serving the Dallas/Fort Worth area and beyond. We partner with our clients to achieve three goals:
First, we’re involved in every step of the custom home building/remodeling process. We work closely with you to set the vision, define your goals, and then craft a space that looks, feels, and operates like you want — or even better.
In addition, we combine your unique style and priorities with our decades of experience and the latest innovations in building science to create a space that provides exceptional comfort, clean indoor air, smart energy use, long-lasting durability, and more.
Finally, we design and construct your custom home project to be significantly more energy and water efficient so you can save precious resources. We also pursue widespread change in our industry by helping create a path to sustainability that others can follow.
Meet Our Team
Representing the third generation of Ferrier Companies, Don is no stranger to construction. His passion for sustainable construction was ignited in the early ‘80s and has not diminished since then.

Texas Roots, National Recognition
First and foremost, Don Ferrier’s grandfather, the stonemason Alexander Ferrier, immigrated from Scotland in 1881 to help construct the Texas State Capitol. Following that project, he went on to build public and residential buildings around the state. Subsequently, his sons later carried on his contracting business. However, they shifted their focus to roads and bridges.
Don Ferrier carried on this construction heritage. starting in the 1980s, he built many of the early generation energy-efficient custom homes across North Texas. Moreover, as technology continued to advance, so did the custom homes he built. In 2007, he built the first Texas residence to earn LEED® for Homes certification — and the third in the U.S. to earn LEED Platinum.
Since then, our firm has continued to elevate Texas building projects to the national stage and garner recognition from organizations including the National Association of Home Builders and the U.S. Department of Energy.
