About Us

Authentic Texas craftsmanship with 100% heart.

J.W. Neathery knows that choosing craftsmen is the most important decision that you make when building or remodeling a home. A quality custom home builder oversees every detail of your home construction, keeps things running smoothly, and can save you time and money. A great designer understands your needs and communicates with you throughout the process to make sure they are being met. Your custom home builder needs to have exceptional craftsmanship, authenticity, solid communication and planning skills, and, most importantly, a legacy of success. Get to know the exceptional team building on a legacy of craftsmanship for over 40 years.

We live what we build.

Here at J.W. Neathery, custom home craftsmanship is more than what we do, it’s who we are. Beyond “practicing what we preach”, we live the lifestyle that we help create for others — this is something we mention a lot, but what does it mean? We live in custom homes on rural acreage that we have built for our own families. We built our homes to suit ourselves and our families, not changing our family dynamic to fit around the homes we live in. It’s a way of living that we enjoy and are invested in creating for others.

Hard work and authentic Texas craftsmanship are in our blood. The Neathery family name has a longstanding legacy of quality craftsmanship – putting the Neathery name on a project is a point of pride for our family. We know that we offer a premium service and we are proud of our legacy and of the work that we do.

Meet our team of exceptional craftsmen.

Jay Neathery

Jay was born, raised, and attended high school in Conroe, Texas. He realized his passion for home building early on and graduated from Texas A&M University in 1977 with a degree in Building Construction. After graduation, Jay began his career as a superintendent for US Homes, but quickly realized the big business culture was not his niche. He went on to work for Houston area family-owned builder, Gerault Homes. Unfortunately, they were not successful and closed, which put Jay in the unique position to use what he had learned and begin his own business at just 25 years old. His goal from the beginning was to provide the highest quality custom homes, focusing on rural lots and acreage. With the view that each one is a gift from God, Jay is committed to ensuring each of our families are completely satisfied. In his spare time, Jay enjoys being outside as well as spending time with his wife Lynn, their 6 children and 7 grandchildren.

Jason Neathery

Jason spent his childhood watching his father build custom homes and knew from an early age he wanted to build homes. He received a business degree from Sam Houston State University in 2005 and officially joined the J.W. Neathery team in 2006 as a field superintendent. Currently, Jason manages sales, design, and on-going daily operations. He and his wife Rachel have four children: Reagan, Johnny, Titus, and Roy and in his free time he enjoys hunting, shooting guns, and camping with his family.

Angel Alegre

Architectural Design

Angel has been designing residential homes for 30+ years and takes pride in listening to the homeowner’s needs and wants for their home. His experience ranges from beach houses on the Texas coast to Ranches in the Texas Hill Country and luxury homes in several gated communities. When Angel is not designing homes, he enjoys grilling and fishing and spending time with his family.

Garrett Roberts


Garrett graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Construction Management.  Before joining our team, he spent 10 years in vocational ministry where he met his wife, and they now have two energetic little boys. When not at work, Garrett enjoys spending time with his family taking adventures to find new coffee shops, foodie spots and places to explore.

Scott T. Cook


Scott joins us to fill a role of sales, budgeting and bidding, and operations. He is client-focused and driven to help projects stay on schedule and on budget. Scott is a graduate of University of Tennessee with a background in sports management, education, manufacturing, and construction equipment sales. His spare time is bent towards being a husband and father of five – watching his kids’ current seasonal sport and on occasion tending the concession stand to support the cause.  If it is not a game day, Scott is likely to be found in the forest mountain biking or hiking trails across Texas, or at CrossFit.

Jeremy D. Winston


Jeremy grew up in Houston, Texas and after serving in the US Army, he attended Sam Houston State University where he obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science.
