Meet Our Owner and Builder

I’m Shane Harell, owner and operator of Craftmaster Custom Homes.

I come from a long line of skilled construction tradesmen. My father and grandfather were both electricians with more than 75 years of experience between them. Early in my career, I had the honor of working with both of them before and during college.

I graduated from Texas State University in 1998, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Technology. In 2006 I was awarded a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

I have spent my professional career as a General Contractor working in all phases of construction from project conception through turnover and warranty. I have over 25 years of experience in multiple types of construction including single and multifamily residential, restaurants, office, aviation and transportation facilities, research and hospital complexes, and industrial installations.

I have worked my way up in the trade. I have been a laborer, apprentice, foreman, assistant superintendent, assistant project manager, estimator, project manager, and project executive. I am an experienced builder with firsthand knowledge of the challenges and complexities that come with building your quality dream home.

I am a long time New Braunfels resident where I reside with my wife Julie and our two daughters. Aside from building, my hobbies include family activities, the outdoors, travel, listening to Texas music, and cooking.

I stand behind every home I build.
