Shawn Starr has been “building dreams” for north Florida’s custom home clientele since 2009.

With an emphasis on forethought, client education and planning, Shawn’s vision was to avoid common pitfalls that customers have with other builders by building the client’s dream, not the builder’s. The Starr® team initiates a custom approach from the outset, considering everything from design and materials to site consideration and funding, all planned in advance with your needs in mind. After all, your new home should be the template for the lifestyle you’ve always wanted for you and your family.

The team at Starr® Custom Homes brings together all the elements needed to bring your inspiration to life:  exceptional design, strong experience and, most importantly, you – at the center of it all.  You’ve dreamed it, now live it®.

Shawn Starr, Owner & President

A Jacksonville native, Shawn Starr has been a state-certified building contractor since 2007. Prior to becoming a contractor, Shawn designed DreamDesign® 2 and had it built for his family. He experienced the adventure of custom building and the contentment of living in a home that was beautiful, unique and ideally created for his family – every room with a unique architectural feature…closets in all the right places and sizes…a place for special furniture and collectibles. Now, this first-hand knowledge drives his passion for custom building your vision for your own new home.

Prior to founding Starr® Custom Homes, Shawn earned his BS and MBA at Jacksonville University and served as the contractor and vice-president of purchasing for Standard Pacific Homes/CalAtlantic Homes, one of the nation’s leading production homebuilders. During his tenure, Shawn permitted more than 250 homes – so you can be confident that solid experience will be the foundation of your project.
