April 2024 – The Anderson Homes Legacy

Message From Stoney

Stoney Petit

This past week, Adam and I hosted a meeting for our National Association of Homebuilders 20 Club, The Custom Builder Alliance, in Beaumont. The meeting was filled with lots of specialized learning, discussion on best practices, and great camaraderie with high end custom home builders from around the country. The meeting culminated with a tour of several homes, Anderson Homes has built, as well as a couple projects in progress. Afterwards, everybody came to Stoney’s house for a crawfish boil and some 1701 Barbecue. I can tell you that it made for great entertainment, teaching people from other parts of the country, how to peel and eat crawfish!

One other highlight to the evening was Ronnie, myself and Adam retelling our story of how Anderson Homes came to be in its current form. It had been a while since the three of us had relived the events of how we all came to be together, and we remembered how great of a story it truly is. I thought it would be worth while to tell it again here, for those of you that have never heard it before.

Anderson Team

Ronnie’s grandfather started Anderson Construction in 1946. Ronnie’s dad then started in the business and later took it over. Ronnie grew up working in Anderson Construction every summer, learning all the specific components of homebuilding from the guys out on the job doing the work. Ronnie took over Anderson Construction at the age of 21, after his dad suffered a major heart attack and ran it until I took over the reigns between 2010 – 2015.

I originally went to work for a production homebuilder in Houston. This was a great start for learning project management and the basic components of building a house. It was trial by fire for me, sometimes building up to 15 houses at once. I also once built a house in 43 days! However, after a couple of years of this, I wanted more out of my career than building the same houses over and over again. I applied, and got into a dual masters program at Texas A&M for Business Administration and Construction Management. Life had other plans though!

Ronnie and my dad are the same age and grew up together as friends in Beaumont. When Ronnie learned that I was going to quit my job in Houston and go back to school, he asked me what I planned to do with that degree. I grew up calling Ronnie “Uncle Ronnie”. I always admired what he did for a living and he was the reason I gravitated towards homebuilding in the first place. So, my answer to his question was “I want to do what you do Uncle Ronnie!” He then asked if I would like to come work for him for a year to make sure that is what I wanted to do with my life. That was in 2002 and I never made it to Texas A&M, trading it instead for on the job training with, who I believe, is the finest homebuilder this area has ever seen.

After a few years of training, learning the difference between production, and high end, custom home building, Ronnie made me a partner in 2008, changing the name to Anderson Homes. And, here enters Adam into the picture. Adam’s older brother Ryan and I had been close friends in high school, and I have known Adam since he was in grade school. In fact, Adam lived with me in my first house, when I first moved back to Beaumont. At the time, we had made a pact that I was going to get him into Anderson Construction as soon as I got my legs under me and could build up enough business to require some extra help. Ronnie took Adam under his wing and began to teach him the fine art of luxury custom home building, like he had taught me. Together, the three of us grew the business to what it is today.

Now Anderson Homes boasts hundreds of homes under its belt through out South East Texas. Ronnie, Adam and I have a combined 92 years of high end custom home building experience. There isn’t anyone more capable in our market place today to build you your custom dream home. I’m so proud of our legacy, Anderson Homes lineage, and the partnerships I have with Ronnie and Adam. This story wouldn’t be complete without inviting you to give us a call so that we can put that experience to work. I hope you all enjoyed reading our story as much as the three of us enjoyed retelling it to a bunch of guys who are all fine, high end, custom homebuilders in their own communities. Thank you for taking that trip down memory lane with us and we hope to speak with you soon about your dream home!
