About Steve Finger Building A Better Lifestyle Each home-builder comes to the field in their own way. Steve describes his passion for home building as a happy accident, but one ingrained from an early appreciation for quality craftsmanship and timeless style. It began as a child growing up in a simple Meyerland ranch home built by his dad’s hard work and filled with his mom’s eye for style. A competitive swimmer, Steve landed a spot on Indiana University’s renowned swim team. After earning his BBA, he returned home and labored in the family retail furniture business. With a desire to strike out on his own, Steve earned an MBA at Rice University and went into banking. Steve then started and ran his own furniture business, Oakcrafters, filled with all-American made pieces. When the world went to overseas mass-made products, Steve closed its doors and began managing industrial properties. During this time, Steve took a risk and bought a fixer-upper. Working weekends, he and his helper transformed the junker house that no one wanted to a nice little gem for a young family, and made a small profit to boot. Renovating fixer uppers laid the foundation for Steve’s career as a trusted home builder. Ironically, it was during the ‘08 housing market crash that Steve transitioned into building custom homes. He wanted more creative liberties, attention to detail on every level, and to bring quality designs into fruition from a blank slate.

Steve tirelessly spent days studying each aspect of the neighborhood’s buildings, talking and working side-by-side with experts and laypersons on each step of the custom process.
