Family Legacy

Richard Trevino’s father, Rene Trevino Sr. had a dream for his son to be a home builder in Abilene. He wanted Richard to continue the Trevino Family Legacy in the local home building industry. Rene has been a framing contractor since the late 1980’s right here in the Big Country & has built for all of Abilene’s most reputable builders.
Richard was born & raised in Abilene, attending Anson Jones Elementary & then moving to the southside of town. Richard had to leave high school in the 9th grade to help support his family, when his father fell ill.
Just shy of 40 years old, Richard has amassed quite an extensive amount of experience in the various trades involved with building a home. Stepping into the role of a Home Builder was a natural progression for him. Richard enjoys having an active role in the building process & is on-site almost every day of the build. He is also very familiar with local subcontractors involved in building a Zap Custom Home. We only choose subcontractors we trust & subcontractors that have proven that they have been providing reputable work in Abilene, for many years. That confidence & that experience, is evident in the details of our homes. Those working relationships are what we base much of our confidence in, so that our future homeowners can share in that same confidence. The people who build our homes & that confidence is what we are very proud of.
Zap Custom Homes is still a young company & it has the youthful energy you’d expect, but Zap has no shortage of building experience or customer service experience. Richard is very ambitious & has high expectations for the future of the company. Custom luxury homes are a part of the company’s goals in the next several years as well as growing the number of spec home builds per year.
Zap Custom Homes has 3 projects in this year’s Parade of Homes, 126 Lake Ridge Ct, 132 Lake Ridge Ct & 3606 Yamini Drive. Zap also has several other builds going in Cimarron Meadows, Carriage Hills, Forrest Meadows.
Give us a call, you can talk directly with Richard. We think you will immediately notice the value in the Zap approach & why we stand out in the home building business!
