Sam Stewart | President
From his first fort when he was 12 years old, Sam was born to build. After growing up in Richardson and Honolulu, Sam attended The University of Texas at Austin and graduated in 1993 with a degree in Civil Engineering with specialties in Structure and Soil Mechanics. Upon graduation, he took his first job with Bury Pittman as an engineer designing and managing projects such as Central Market, The Heart Hospital, and Covert Auto Dealerships.
After two years, Sam left to pursue custom home building and joined Brian Bailey Custom Homes where he learned estimating, purchasing and built relationships with top Austin trades. In 1995, upon the encouragement of Brian, Sam formed Sam Stewart Custom Homes. Inc. Over the last 28 years, Sam has built some of the finest homes all over Austin and the Hill Country. His passion for the process has led to numerous accolades but the accolades that mean the most are those of his homeowners and the referrals they send.
Sam enjoys calling Austin home with his wife, Jennie, and their three adult children while spending quality time with family and friends at their ranch in Fredericksburg.
Sumner Sagebiel | Superintendent
Sumner was born in Fredericksburg and grew up in Brownsville, Texas. He graduated from Texas Tech with a Bachelor of Science specializing in Architecture and Construction Technology. He has worked with Sam for over 23 years. Sumner is an integral part of the building process and oversees daily job site operations.
Sumner’s roots run deep in Fredericksburg. The Sagebiels were one of the original German families who immigrated to Fredericksburg, where many still reside today. Sumner lives in Austin with his wife, Ashely, and their four children.
