Our Story

What happens when you take two people from different backgrounds, with complementary skill sets and merge them together in business and in life? You create something amazing! Something we call a love by design.

Randy is the son of a prominent builder from Tyler, Texas. From a young age he grew up working on his dad's crews and learning the trades. He's had the opportunity to perform nearly every task in construction and has a solid understanding of how things should be done. Early in his career, he moved to San Francisco where he worked on numerous multi-million dollar remodeling projects and eventually forged his own path as a General Contractor under the name RRS Construction.  Flash forward years later...Randy was in the Austin area visiting family when he met a girl that piqued his interest.  Long story short, she convinced him to stay.

That brings us to that girl, or should we say the girl.  Cara is the daughter of an architect from New England.  From a young age she enjoyed using furniture stencils and a ruler to create floor plans of her dream home.  She would show them off to her dad, listen to his feedback and then move on to the next rendition.  Little did she know that this past time was really a career calling.  As she grew up she became focused on sports and health sciences which culminated with working in the corporate world and completion of a MBA.  Her creative side kept bubbling to the surface and soon she became a serial renovator and real estate investor.  When she moved to Austin, she purchased a fixer upper in a great location and completed a major remodel and addition on the home.  Midway through that project she met Randy. Cara also now holds an active Texas Realtor license.

Over the past several years, Cara and Randy have forged their skills and experiences to create one of the premier remodeling and custom home building companies in the Austin area.  In 2013 they welcomed their new C.E.O. (Chief Executive Offspring), Easton and in 2016 his little brother Brady also joined the company. As the years have unfolded, its clear that there was a great design planned for this family and this business beyond what was ever imagined.

In 2017 the team brought Jake Tudor to help lead the expansion and growth of RRS Design + Build. As the Director of Business Development, Jake works closely with clients to help them through the initial phase of their project. His undergraduate degree in Architecture and Masters in Real Estate Development make him a strong addition to our firm.

The team at RRS Design + Build looks forward to sharing in the design of your life!
