Nicole and Kristal, I just wanted you both to know how very much I appreciated all your help with the selections. I’m not sure that I shared this with Adrian but this home is a dream for many reasons. Al and I grew up in very modest homes. Like most African Americans, the generations before us never had the means to even imagine the possibility of leaving a legacy of property to their descendants. Al and I will hopefully be the first in our families to do so and we feel incredibly blessed. We’ve both had our share of health challenges, me with MS and Al with cancer. Accepting that your functional mobility will decline or facing a cancer diagnosis when you’ve been otherwise healthy, really makes you reevaluate life and what’s most important. Covid is yet another reason we’ve decided not to delay having the house built; we need our own safe haven. The icing on the cake will be spending the remainder of our years enjoying the lake and sharing special memories with our family and friends. You ladies did a fabulous job of translating our dreams for our forever home into a real vision. I really can’t thank you enough.

Elliott Pew - Owner, Canyon Peaks Ranch


I am writing to give a letter of recommendation for CKC Custom Homes and Chuck and Kristal Powell. CKC Custom Homes recently completed a major remodel of our 4800 square foot ranch house located on the Canyon Peaks Ranch in Kendall County.

The remodeling job was extensive, requiring my wife and I to move into a guesthouse we have on the ranch for several months. The remodel job included some structural modifications of the house, the construction of an outdoor kitchen/cabana around the swimming pool, new HVAC, plumbing, standing seam metal roof, flagstone around pool and patio, audio/visual, as well as a complete re-do of the entire interior of the house including tile, cabinets, carpet, paint and many other items. I invite you to contact Chuck and Kristal to see pictures of the final result; the finished product is fantastic! A complex job, a large amount of pre-construction planning work was required which Chuck oversaw. He would take input from my wife and myself and create detailed drawings, which we would review and modify until we had a final product. Kristal was very helpful in the planning process as well, facilitating with selections on tile, paint, appliances, etc.

She had a great knack for understanding how we wanted the house to look, and translating that into results. Once the plans were finished, we received a bid in a straightforward and transparent fashion, which we then modified to meet our budget. The construction phase took approximately 6 months, starting with demolition and then moving into construction and finish work. We basically gutted the house and started almost from scratch. I have built a number of houses in the past and this project was more complicated than any of the new construction I have previously been associated with. The project was finished within our budget and Chuck was very thorough in finishing up a number of small punch list items. Chuck left the job site clean and in as good a shape as he found it. As I mentioned above, the final product is great; a beautiful job. In summary, I would recommend CKC Custom Homes for almost any construction project. We are very happy with the job they did on our ranch house and would invite interested parties to review pictures of the final product at CKC Custom Home’s offices.

We have now been in our CKC built home for 3 years and continue to get great comments from our neighbors on how much they like the exterior of our home, and the very roomy feel of the interior.

We asked for “wow’ factor and got it for both the outside and the inside. Every room in the house has a custom ceiling treatment including high ceilings in the kid’s bedrooms. The floorplan is roomy, but also very efficient. Minimal wasted space.

Chuck is very good at pointing out items that bring value in both use in future resale. Example is our wider garage doors, and the brick and mortar fireplaces. 3 years into the home and we have only had service calls once on the air conditioner, and once on the garage. Both were fully covered by warranty.

I contracted CKC Custom Homes to construct my custom home in Comfort, Texas in 2008. I was very impressed with the process Chuck utilizes to let you know exactly where you are during construction. The budget was set and you knew your cost upfront and throughout the process. Kristal was very efficient and effective in all of our choices during the deco process. Overall our experience was excellent with CKC Custom Homes. We finished on schedule, within budget, and the results were our beautiful quality built custom home. I would choose CKC again if I were to build custom.

It is with tremendous enthusiasm we recommend CKC Custom Homes. After considering many of the best-known elite homebuilders in the San Antonio area, it was an easy decision to select CKC Custom Homes to construct our dream home in Helotes, Texas during 2013. When we witnessed their top-notch construction quality and the unique CKC beauty and style that work so well within the San Antonio-area landscape, choosing CKC above numerous other custom homebuilders was the obvious choice.   Each home that Chuck and Kristal Powell create is truly one of a kind. Chuck’s attention to the building process details and using first-rate quality materials and workmanship during a home’s construction is foremost in his mind. He and his design team thoroughly assessed the unique and challenging features of our lot and maximized its potential far beyond what we thought possible- he is a visionary. The flair for style and detail Kristal brings to each home as a talented and experienced designer amazes clients and guests to their homes. She incorporates the clients’ needs and personal style, blending them perfectly with her own sensibilities and design industry knowledge in a manner which leads to an end result that will never fail to impress. Working with the entire CKC homebuilding team was a pleasure due to their strong customer service ethic. The difference truly is in the details when it comes to building high-end custom homes- it is no surprise CKC Custom Homes has received numerous awards and recognitions for their work and we know they will remain at the forefront of their industry and will surely receive far more accolades and continued success in the future.

CKC Custom Homes have been members of the Greater San Antonio Builders Association for over 15 years now. They have participated in several Parades of Homes over the years and always win several awards, including the coveted “People’s Choice Award.” Both Kristal and Chuck Powell have been extremely active in the Association having served in several leadership positions including the Board of Directors. In addition, they have both continued to take our educational courses designed to encourage our builders to stay on the cutting edge of technology, business development, and good business practices. This Certified Master Builder program is through the National Association Of Homebuilders. Their reputation in the community is stellar, and we believe they would be a huge asset to your community.

Outstanding experience from the moment we met with Kristal and the CKC Team to the completion of our dream-home. Very professional, polite, positive, and experienced custom home builder that has opulent craftsmanship that separates them from other builders. Most of all, the owners are very family-oriented, have an exceptional staff, and a pleasure to work with. They take pride in their work and the results show it. We highly recommend CKC to build your next home!

I’ve been privilege in working for quite a few High Quality Builders in my business as lead designer for Hyden Design Group. Been designing for CKC for a few years and have design quite a few homes for their custom clients.
Not once have I witness CKC not giving their client the best service possible. I believe It is good business to walk a custom client from design all the way to handing the key to their New House they will call Home and that is what CKC has and is doing. It is a privilege to work with CKC knowing this is a company that does their best every day for their clients.

Shawn Hamilton

Building the house of our dreams was easy with CKC. Absolutely the best experience! Everyone from financial assistance to navigate the best deal, Michael Hyden our architect creating a worknof art, the incredible quality of construction and attention to details, the most colaborative design team ever! We would build with them again if we ever sold this house which is not likely.


We were so impressed with the design & build process and final result when CKC built our current house, that there was no question we wanted CKC to build our new house in Bandera along the Medina River. We wanted the same unique touches and attention to detail as we build on another unique lot. The design process was great. We have a 'great room' with a very unique ceiling design, a master suite with individual touches for both of us, and an RV garage that we have wished for for many years. We can hardly wait for it to be completed so we can move into another dream house in a unique setting. We highly recommend CKC Custom Homes!


Wow, how exciting it is to finally have our dream home! Thank you Chuck for all you did to make this happen for us. As you know our first attempt at building was not a good one, but with you and your team, we had a great experience. Your creativity, flexibility, and quality that you provide is more than we expected or even knew was available. We recommend you to anyone we know who is looking to build and we are always very proud to show off our new home.

Thanks again,


CKC Custom Homes made our dreams of building our dream home a reality. They listened carefully to our request, had a great attention to detail, and had great ideas.

“Thank you CKC”


My wife and I had our dream home constructed by CKC Custom Homes. We are so happy with all of Chuck and Kristal’s personal touches and decisions as how to have our house built according to our needs and wants. What a truly amazing experience. What impressed us the most was that Chuck and Kristal are such fun loving individuals, positive, church going with so much faith in their lives. They truly are a reflection of integrity and honesty.
