Color Houses, Inc


Zach Haines and Eric Pierce - Owners and Project Managers

Since 2010, Zach Haines and Eric Pierce have been building and renovating homes through Color Houses. We both began in real estate, buying fixer uppers in historic Houston neighborhoods to renovate and live in - Eric in Riverside Terrace and Zach in First Ward. Since then we have completed dozens of projects, from bathroom remodels to new construction.

Color Houses is a full service design / build firm and real estate broker.  Eric and Zach are actively involved with every project we take on. We have a crew of subcontractors that we have worked with for many years. We have the skills and tools to design, permit, and build your project (whether it is a bathroom, addition or custom house), or bid and build your project from another designer's construction documents.

Our goal is to bring great design and craftsmanship to our Houston community of homeowners.
