The Navarro Family
The Navarro Family has been a strong part of the
Smithville community for five generations. Our Company was started over
years ago with Joe Navarro Jr. being a large part of this operation.
We started out building KOA

since. These have included bed and breakfasts, hotels, retreats,
hunting ranches and a
diocese as well as cabins and homes for families all over Texas. Our
clients have included the King Ranch, Bill Carter of Carter Country
Guns,David Anderson and family,Ray Yates and family, Monty & Nettie
Kalogeras, Safari Shooting School, and many others.
Family Owned and Family Operated
Joe & Abbie Navarro incorporated Rustic Cedar Cabins of Texas, Inc.
in 2002. We have devoted our time to growing this company into what
it has become today.
Every aspect of this company has been improved to offer a quality
product for our Texas customers. We promise customer service and
quality product to all of our customers.
We took this company over in hopes to build a strong company that would
service our community, our state and that would bring pride to our
father and to our families.
So far we believe we have succeeded in all that we have set out to do.
We have goals to continue growing so that we may service more jobs for
our community at decent wages
and offer a great product for all of our Texas customers who want a
quality product for a reasonable price. We believe “Custom Built
Cabins With Texas Pride” says it all.
Although we spend most hours building projects all over Texas we
have also devoted our lives to raising six beautiful children in
Our Family - Our children are now grown and in the
beginning stages of learning about life on their own. We have
been blessed over the past few years with a new generation of
grandchildren which is without a doubt the most precious part of our
lives. We are truly blessed and very thankful for our
Jr. had been building cabins out of Smithville, Texas for over 50
years. We were proud to be able to take over the company before his
passing in 2009. As his son, Joe had worked by his fathers side
over the years since he was a young teen and still in Smithville JH.
In the afternoons after school Joe Navarro III swept floors in the
shop. Through high school he spent many days driving materials to the
jobs all over Texas and surrounding areas when he was able to leave
or his football and baseball program for the Smithville Tigers. He
moved up to the cut man and worked on the jobsites most summers and
after school. He traveled all over with his dad delivering
materials and taking care of customers. After he graduated from
Smithville high school Joe III tried different jobs in the oil field
over Texas and Colorado which of course he excelled at and he
did his best to provide for his new family. It wasn’t long that
he found himself back at the company he knew so well at his dad’s
side. Joe has worked long and hard to accomplish ownership of
this company, to make his dad proud and to offer his family the
wonderful life they have today.
Shown here is John Frank with his Grandpa Navarro working hard to run
lining for the interior walls of one of the cabins being built. John
Frank had worked for this company since
graduating from Smithville High School and was a crew leader on the job
sites as well as at the shop when needed. John Frank and his Grandpa,
Joe Jr. were side by side
for many years. Joe Jr. has given many of his grandchildren the
opportunity to learn the old style construction ways that have possibly
been lost along the way. The Navarro family
has kept many of these lessons going strong with new lessons added for
quality workmanship. We work hard and throw in our determination and
love for this job into every project.
Our grandfather has made us proud to be a part of this company.
