Building Relationships... One Home at a Time

Our Story

Cunningham Building & Development was founded on a simple premise: Make every customer’s dream home a reality. And for over 30 years, our general partner has been doing just that by building more than 300 luxurious, custom homes throughout the Houston and Galveston area.

We continue to use the latest technology to ensure you enjoy the highest standards of comfort, luxury, and efficiency. Simply put, we build homes that not only look better than our competition, but that work better too. From exceeding engineering standards by using stronger concrete in our foundation to building each home to meet LEED, Energy Star, or other green-building standards, we’re committed to building the home you deserve.

Embrace the luxurious lifestyle of a Cunningham Home.
