ABOUT MANNA CUSTOM
Manna Custom is a design-build firm located in Austin, TX.
After a few successful years, the company founder and a like-minded entrepreneur met, developed a friendship, and partnered together. Shortly thereafter, the two charted a new course and set off.
Beginning in early 2019, Manna Custom pursued an aggressive hiring strategy with the singular focus of developing a team capable of systematic mastery and integration of the various segments of residential design and construction. By late 2019, a quorum of seven had successfully implemented sequencing methodologies and leveraged technology in a way that was wholly new to the construction industry.
Manna Custom had achieved the vision to span the vertical, soup-to-nuts, as a cohesive team and in a way that could scale efficiently. Today, we have exceptional line-of-sight; low risk-exposure; outsized buying power and effectiveness; low overhead; end-to-end control of "our shop" and our process; reduced transaction fees; no incentive for margin-hiding; and are able to execute with speed and expertise as a one-stop shop.
For our customers in the retail segment, we focus on great service and attention to detail; for our private equity contributors and syndicated investors, we focus on wealth-building and results; for our B2B customers, we strive to deliver speed and low-touch UX that can only come from "treating it like you own it"—on all of our projects, we want to build great places for life and work and everything in between.
Our model includes: Spec builds; investor builds & remodels; Single-Family New Construction; Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs); Detached Accessory Units (DAUs); investment consulting, including placement of self-directed IRA's; placement of private equity; real estate syndication; turnkey labor sequences and procurement; and a limited number of retail customer remodels and new construction.
We approach everything we do with humility, integrity, honor, candor, courage, a servant's heart, and an earnest desire to glorify God in our work. We believe we can serve well because we've been well served.
