Our History

40 years ago – Al Couto came to America with a green card and ambition. He wanted to make a living, raise a family, and do something that he loved. He tried being a baker … that didn’t seem to work out, he opened a sandwich shop – things didn’t go well, a manufacturing job wasn’t all that better. In the mid 70’s he took a job for a construction company and started to find his niche, he quickly excelled with hard work, common sense and dedication.

On November 24th, 1982 he started his own company called Couto & Sons Construction, started building homes and has never looked back. Nearly 30 years later, his heart is still in it.

about01In 2001, his son Donny Couto followed in his father’s footsteps and started building homes in Hood County, Texas. One by one, his homes started getting better, and better, customers took notice, and his phone started to ring. A few short years later, Al & Donny joined forces and started a company called Couto Homes. Together, AL & Donny have put together a dream team of employee’s that share the same values and are committed to excellence.

The values of the company remain unchanged from 30 years ago. Treat people right, never go back on your word, offer the highest quality home, highest quality service, and deliver the best possible quality and value in a home.
