From design inception to move in, we found every step in building our home with Ron Fogle Construction to be a pleasure. Ron listened carefully as we expressed our needs and wants. He provided a selection of floor plans then listened to our input and made adjustments. Together we arrived at a floor plan which we have found to be wonderfully livable and perfect for us. His care in selecting subcontractors coupled with the above board manner he dealt with them was reflected in their allegiance to him and their commitment and care to the building process. We continually experienced Ron’s honesty, integrity, attention to detail, and his genuine interest in us and in every phase of our project. Ron kept us abreast of progress and notified us in a timely manner of decisions we needed to make. With pleasure we recommend Ron and would consider it a privilege to visit with anyone who is considering working with him to build a home they will love.

Choosing to work with Ron Fogle was the best decision we could have made in regards to building our new home. He personally worked with us through every step, from creating our house plan to putting the finishing touches on our home. He was incredibly patient with us, allowing us time to make decisions and never growing weary of our endless questions. He was honest with us throughout the process, including making sure we knew where we stood with our budget. He was also very detail-oriented, ensuring we thought of every pro and con before making decisions. One of the nicest feelings about working with Ron was that everywhere we went, from the granite company to the lighting company to the cabinet makers, people said that he was the best builder around. We couldn’t agree more.
David and Christine Sanchez
Never having built a house before we were apprehensive about the process but working with Ron made our building experience very enjoyable. He was knowledgeable, very attentive to details, helpful, and respected by his subs. He was patient, friendly, and always available no matter how many questions we had. He was enthusiastic and showed a genuine interest in not only our house but also us. We feel like we gained a friend in addition to a new home. We love our new home, we feel like it is a quality built home and would definitely recommend Ron to build yours!
Pat and Ralph McCleskey
Unable to find the home that would fit our needs, we looked at building a home as an option. We were from out of state and had a limited amount of time to come up with a plan. We met with Ron Fogle, selected a lot to build on, and with his help designed a beautiful custom home. Ron was very active in the floor plan decisions. He paid very close attention to our needs and wants. He made welcomed suggestions that helped us make informed decisions. This attention to detail helped us feel at ease as the building process got started. We knew our lovely home was going to become a reality. We are completely satisfied with our home and could not imagine living anywhere else!

Building a new home was never on our “bucket list”; however, after years of looking for just the right place, we finally decided that to get what we wanted, we would have to build a custom home. We began the process with some trepidation and uncertainty, so choosing the right builder was extremely important — and Ron Fogle was definitely the right builder for us. We knew that Ron built beautiful houses, but more importantly, we knew that we could trust him in an area where we had little knowledge. Ron and Anne both helped us with decisions along the way and gave us the confidence we needed to build a house we are proud to call our home. Ron is knowledgeable, patient, trustworthy, and reliable. He hires outstanding sub-contractors, and he oversees the work with an eye for detail that makes a difference in the houses he builds. The process we dreaded in the beginning became a positive experience as we worked with Ron to create the home we desired. We agree with others that Ron Fogle’s reputation as the best builder in Abilene is well-earned and well-deserved.
Danny and Nancy Haddox
Ron Fogle made building our new home a delight. We just couldn’t say enough nice things about Ron or our experience we had working with him during the complete process. He made any challenge that came up work and in a timely manner with a smile on his face.
We are so pleased with this home and if ever we were to build again we would certainly hire Ron Fogle to be our builder. You just can’t beat his integrity or his talents.
We went to several “Parade of Homes” over the last few years which gave us the confidence that Ron Fogle Construction was the best choice for us. Thank you Ron for a great job. We are so pleased.

We came to the conclusion we did not want to work with any high pressure realtors or builders. We thought we had found one as we walked into a spec house for ideas and were approached by obviously the leader of the open house. “Hi, I’m Ron Fogle. I built this house. Please feel free to roam around and look. I’m here if you have any questions.” That easy going, mannerly self-introduction marked the rest of our experience with Ron, as we shortly thereafter declared him our builder. He did answer every question we had, showed us some we should have asked (!), worked carefully on at least two floor plans which we decided to scrap- but patiently developed with us the one we settled on and are now living in. Ron’s upbringing, educational background, experience in finance and design found convergence in his work. He is a craftsman and an artist. You won’t go wrong building a house with him.
Bill & Leta Tillman
Ron Fogle built a mother-in-law house for us behind our home, something he had not attempted before, nor had we. Throughout the process, he worked closely with us, making revisions and taking suggestions as we went along. We could not have been more pleased, not only with Ron but also with the sub-contractors he selected. Everyone was accommodating and pleasant to work with, and the project came in under budget. If you look up the word “integrity” in the dictionary, it should include a picture of Ron Fogle!
Glenn & Carol Dromgoole
When deciding to build a new home, we had many reservations. Not only were we unsure of the process, but we were hesitant because of the many “horror stories” we had heard from friends that had gone through the process. Out of all of the uncertainty, we knew the MOST IMPORTANT part of the process was choosing the RIGHT BUILDER! The main criteria in that selection process for us included honesty, integrity, work ethic, quality of work, and attention to detail. We quickly learned Ron Fogle represented all of these.
He was very patient with us when making changes to the floor plan and when we needed help and/or suggestions with those changes, he gave us many options to choose from. He was very prompt with communication and kept us informed of where we were in the process and what to expect during each phase. Even now that we’ve been in our house a few months, he is still just as prompt with communication and responding to any questions we may have.
I would definitely recommend Ron Fogle and Ron Fogle Construction to any of my family and friends for their homebuilding needs. We LOVE our new home and we look forward to raising our family here and making many, many happy memories.
Thank you Ron!!!!!

Tell anyone you are building a house, and you will get tons of advice. When we decided to build our home, we were inundated with suggestions. The truest statement we heard over and over was to be sure to work with a quality builder. Now that we are living in our home, we can say that we worked with the best builder, Ron Fogle. In all steps of the building process we had clear communication and a consistent commitment to our project from Ron. From the planning stages, to closing, to questions after construction and occupation, Ron provided detailed and timely plans to involve us, allowed us time to make decisions and kept us informed. Many times throughout construction we compared notes with other families building homes and more often than not, when we said that Ron “provides this planning” or “met us at the house for this question or decision”, other families said, “my builder doesn’t do that.” When you consider trusting someone with one of the biggest decisions you will make, our family wholeheartedly gives this advice, “Choose the Best Builder…You will find one with Ron Fogle.”

After spending a couple of years of looking at dozens of homes and talking to several builders, we were still debating whether or not to build a new home. Then we walked through a home built by Ron Fogle Construction. After setting up an appointment and talking to him, our decision was made. We had very specific ideas on some aspects of our home, but on others we needed a lot of help. In both cases, Ron was very patient and careful. He took a floor plan that was close to what we wanted and modified it to make it exactly what we wanted. When things came up that we weren’t sure about, he always gave us options and much needed advice. We appreciated the fact that Ron didn’t take shortcuts to rush our completion date. Ron knows that his name goes into your house too, and builds to the quality level that he would want in his own home.
His involvement didn’t end when he handed us the keys either. Any issue or concern that we had was always promptly taken care of with just a phone call. He was as courteous and willing to help after the sale as he was during the building process. Ron built us s house that we feel at home in. He was always very professional, friendly, and courteous.
We are proud to tell people that our house was built by Ron Fogle Construction. We wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. We love our home and we loved working with Ron.
Jim & Suzie Haden
We asked around and talked to several builders. We decided to go with Ron Fogle. We are so glad we did. Ron is very professional, honest, patient and trustworthy. Ron is always on time or ahead of schedule. We are very pleased with the way our house turned out. It’s more beautiful than we imagined. We would recommend Ron Fogle to anybody.

When my husband Garth and I decided to move from Southeast Texas to the Merkel area (back home for me) and build a new house, we had no idea who to hire for the project. Since I had recently retired, my new “job” was to find the right builder for our custom home.
I met Ron Fogle at a Sunday-afternoon “open house” and was very impressed, not only with him personally, but also with the workmanship I had seen in several of the homes he had built. Since we were more than 400 miles away and wouldn’t actually be moving to the area until the house was completed, it was very important that we find someone that we were comfortable with and could trust to build our “dream home.” After gathering information on various builders, we decided that Ron was the man for the job.
Our entire home-building experience with Ron has truly been a pleasure. Despite being miles away, we never felt “out of the loop.” From day one, Ron kept us informed and up to date through every phase of the project, either by phone or computer. He e-mailed pictures, comments, detailed spreadsheets, and was available by phone anytime we needed to talk. Whenever we were in town – even on weekends – Ron would take the time to meet with us personally. Any question or concern along the way was dealt with promptly, fairly and with the utmost courtesy, from the moment we signed the contract until the final walk-through – and then some!
No doubt, we made the right decision in selecting Ron Fogle Construction. Not only are we proud of our beautiful, well-constructed home, we are delighted to call our builder a friend.
Jerri & Garth Brown
My brother recommended Ron when we were looking for a builder in Abilene. He described Ron as a man of integrity, having known him for many years. From the beginning, we were impressed with Ron’s enthusiasm toward his business and his clients.
This is the fifth house we’ve built in the last 40 years, and we can truly say it has been the most pleasant experience. Ron’s counsel and willingness to work with us made our commitment much easier.
Ron is a hands-on builder, on the job site daily, and it’s not unusual to see him with a hammer or broom, working alongside his crew.
We recommend Ron Fogle without reservation.
Wanda & Don Middleton
No one is as particular as Ron. He doesn’t miss a detail. Of the top-tier guys building houses, he is the best. I would have him build my house again.
Ron has been my friend for a long time. I wanted most of all to be friends when we finished this project and I am happy to say, we are still good friends.
I think communication is Ron’s greatest strength; whether the news was good or bad, it was always communicated directly to us and in a timely manner. Ron kept us informed daily of what was going to happen, when it would happen, and ahead of time as to the decisions we needed to make. There were no “last minute” surprises.
He was always willing to talk through and consider our ideas; he helped us find quality at the best price and helped us research products to stay in budget. He was a great tour guide all along the way and made our home building experience very enjoyable. We would highly recommend Ron Fogle Construction.
