We’re a client-centered construction company with deep roots in North Texas.



SMCC prides itself on bringing a client-centered approach to every project. We will work with you on design options and product selections to bring your vision, not ours, to life.

Though we happily build new houses, our true passion is renovation. Remodeling existing homes is never dull. Whether it’s the challenge of making an add-on look like part of the original structure, unearthing unexpected or even unsafe issues behind the walls of older homes, or taking over a project when the client parted ways with another contractor, SMCC loves working with you to accomplish your goals for your home and add value to one of your biggest investments.

Many of our clients are our friends. Some were friends before construction began, and we remain friends after the projects. Others became friends after meeting us on the job. Construction work is rarely without bumps, but we work through any issues in partnership with clients to ensure that everyone is satisfied. We stand behind our warranty and our work, and we routinely perform new work for previous clients. As one of our clients said, “We keep hiring them because I know they will stand by their work. If there is a problem, we don’t have to worry because we know it will be taken care of.” Most of our business comes from referrals because we place a premium on client satisfaction.

We also have long-term relationships with a team of subcontractors. Our relationships with these tradespeople ensure high-quality, consistent work from job to job. Like our clients, our subcontractors trust us to communicate well and act with integrity.

Shawn & Justin at Teague Lumber
Shawn M. Cowdin, CEO/President


CEO, President

Shawn has been in the construction business in Fort Worth for 35+ years. He started framing houses even before graduating from Paschal High School, eventually starting his own framing company at the age of 20. Shawn moved into general contracting in 2006. Framers have to understand houses from the perspective of every trade, so Shawn’s background gives him both breadth and depth of construction expertise. He loves the variety and challenge of remodeling homes and counts himself lucky to have found lifelong work in a field he is passionate about.

Justin P. Cowdin, Senior Project Manager


Senior Project Manager

Justin has been working in construction since 1988. Justin began his career working with his brother Shawn as a framer. He worked as a framing contractor and trim carpenter for 30 years before joining SMCC as a project manager in 2018. Though he is a true artisan with a beautiful carpentry portfolio, Justin’s extensive construction knowledge and love of people made the transition to project manager a natural one. He and Shawn work seamlessly as a team to ensure projects are executed to the highest standards.

Project Development

Travis has over 10 years’ experience in the home building and remodeling industry, working as an estimator, project manager and contributing to in-house design work. His experience has an emphasis on high-performance building techniques, as well as Universal Design and Aging in Place.  Travis loves the outdoors, birding, spoon carving and spending time with his wife Heather, their two children, Wyatt and Knox, and their rescue dogs, Stormy and Zelda.
