We’ve got the expertise to design and build custom pools and outdoor living spaces you’ve always dreamed of! From Custom Pools to Outdoor Kitchens, we can do it all.
Since owner and founder Terry Picklo started Picklo Homes more than 40 years ago, we’ve been building beautiful custom homes. It only makes sense that we should enhance the outdoor living in our clients’ backyards, too!
Picklo Homes is a family-owned and operated full-service, outdoor living space, and pool company. Terry Picklo discovered his love for the custom home building market and Picklo Homes was born in Tomball in 1981. Terry’s son, Nick Picklo, joined the team in the ’90s with experience as a real estate broker, a certified graduate builder, and expertise in the custom home building industry which benefited his position as vice president and head of marketing.
Today, Terry and Nick still share the same strong work ethic, focus on high quality, and commitment to the community that characterizes Picklo Homes. There is a strong sense of pride and integrity to each backyard oasis they build. If you’ve got plans for your backyard, you can count on Picklo Homes to transform your outdoor space. After all, our parent company has been listed among Houston Living Magazine’s Top 100 Home Builders for three years running, and we’ve also been featured in American Builders Quarterly and The Builders Journal, both prestigious trade publications.
Regardless of your personal style, your budget, and your vision for your outdoor living space, Picklo Homes can make your dreams a reality.

CUSTOM POOL AMENITIES
The amenities, accessories, and “extras” we incorporate into our pools are what set Picklo Homes apart from other pool builders. We use high-quality equipment and supplies because we realize it will save our client money in the long run. Some examples of this include:
LED Lighting – LED lights are brighter, available in a number of colors and styles, and are very low voltage. Once again, this helps save on electrical costs.
Variable Speed Pumps – Variable Speed Pumps make a great addition to an advanced pool automation system by providing the ability to automatically operate your pump at different speeds throughout the day depending on your preferences.
Glacier Chiller – A Glacier Chiller is a pump system that draws in your pool water and cools it by absorbing the heat and then pumping it back into your pool, offering you the most refreshing swim experience possible on extremely hot days.
