About Mike

Owner Mike McManus has been in the construction business over 20 years.  A graduate of Texas Tech University, he has worked at all levels of the construction industry from managing 28 tract homes at one time to focusing on building a 13,000 square foot home. He began his career as a builder with nationally known Lennar Homes in Austin, Texas.  He later moved to Eppright Custom Homes where he was responsible for building 5-6 customs home per year in the $500-1M range.  Then, Jauregui Architects hired him as a superintendent where he was responsible for building ultra custom homes in the  $1.2-3M range.  Mike was the superintendent for the Jauregui Architects’ award winning submission in the 2003 Austin Parade of Homes.  In 2003, Mike made the move to Fort Worth where he was a partner in Malik Custom Homes.

After the economic downturn in 2008, Mike took a hiatus from the building business and put his strong project management and budgeting skills to work for Jackson Drilling Services in Justin, TX where he streamlined the company’s operations and financial systems making it possible for the company to be acquired.  Now back doing what he truly loves to do, Mike has created Kindred Homes and Construction. He intends to establish KHC as one of the Metroplex’s most reputable and sought after custom builders.
