Garrick Bernsen — Owner

About Company

The Bernsen family grew up in the Corpus Christi area, spending summer weekends fishing in Port Aransas and relaxing on the beach. When Hurricane Ike hit Galveston, Texas in 2008, destroying thousands of homes, Garrick Bernsen moved there to re-build custom homes in the devastated coastal towns. After several years in the Galveston Area, Garrick returned to Corpus Christi and founded Bernsen Coastal Builders in Port Aransas with the support and partnership of his parents.

Using the knowledge and experience from building on Texas beaches in Galveston, Bernsen Coastal Builders now constructs homes designed to withstand the demanding island environment. Now in the Corpus Christi and Port Aransas areas we helps clients design and build durable homes with coastal architecture tha can be enjoyed as rentals, residences, or private vacation destinations for large groups of family and friends.
