About Abilene Home Builder

When a client chooses BlakeLee Builders, they can be assured they have the most professional team in the industry working on their home. Together with their superior sub-contractors and suppliers, the team works with integrity to diligently ensure attention to detail without compromising quality or workmanship. Their approach to not only homebuilding, but also building relationships, has resulted in BlakeLee Builders building Abilene and the surrounding areas since 1997.


The company is owned and operated by Jimmy E. McDonald, Jr. and his wife, Annette. Jimmy handles the day to day construction activities and scheduling while Annette handles the financial aspect of the construction process. In 2017, Tara Young joined them to assist with Sales & Marketing. Tara has been with the McDonalds since 2013 working in other entities, so adding her to the BlakeLee team was a seamless transition. The three make an incredibly dynamic team – all working together to the same end, which is to bring a clients’ dreams to reality and ensure their home building experience is a pleasant and efficient process.


Jimmy & Annette make their home in Tuscola, TX. God and family have always been a priority for the McDonalds. They enjoy spending time with their adult children; Garrett, Josh (and wife Randi), Meagan and Austin and they absolutely cherish their roles as Lolli & Poppy to their precious grandchildren; Kamrynn, Reagynn, Digger, Gracelynn and Ayden.


Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children. Proverbs 17:6
