Our Story

At Design, Remodel & Painting with Purpose, our unique history begins with three generations of Texas friends and families serving the greater Austin area since the 1970s. It all started with master craftsmen and dads, Tommie Caldwell and Manuel Segura. In their 30s, they began working side by side, collaborating on various projects that included home repairs, painting, finish carpentry, and remodeling.

Under their leadership, their sons Aaron & Jared Caldwell and Carlos & Daniel Segura became accomplished craftsmen, honing their skills and developing their expertise. Twelve years ago, Aaron and Carlos reconnected and are now the next generation co-owners of our company. Together, they oversee quality control and project production for modern and chic kitchen and bathroom redesigns, as well as complete home repairs.

Even the third generation is involved, with grandchildren Nicolas & Timothy Segura following in the family footsteps. They contribute to the company by overseeing quality control and project production for various projects. And keep an eye out for rising star Fletcher Caldwell–at just 7.5 years old, he’s already showing a creative and curious mind with a passion for the industry.

Today, all Caldwells and Seguras are accomplished project managers and business owners, offering a wide range of services that include kitchen & bath remodeling, interior design, historic home renovations, flooring installation, residential & commercial painting, master electrical contracting, complete plumbing services, and general construction. Whatever your project needs may be, we have the knowledge and expertise to deliver your vision.

Since 2015, Design, Remodel & Painting with Purpose has received the Georgetown Community Award for seven years in a row, a testament to our commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction. Contact us now and let our generations of experience and dedication transform your home with purpose.

Aaron C. Caldwell, Owner

Doctor of Creative Industries Candidate
M.A. Ed.; M.A. Intl. Rltns.; B.A. Mass Comms.

Aaron is a proud family man in Georgetown, loving on his little boy Fletcher & elderly parents in their multi-generational home.

A native Texan with over 25 years in the business, Aaron began learning the trades and running a business from his father Tommie in Austin. He now has a lead role at just about every job over the last 9 years. 

Aaron is a different kind of remodel, repair and painting contractor and international entrepreneur.

He began working and traveling the world after college–26 countries. While on this journey, he did various trades projects in Taiwan and Australia, from painting to construction. 

His real passion during this decade away, however, was Social Entrepreneurship, International Education and Creative Counter Child Trafficking. Aaron developed the infrastructure and got the funding to teach entrepreneurial skills to several groups, including underclassmen, graduate students, university teachers and staff, at-risk children in rural areas in Australia, indigenous communities in the Solomon Islands and at several universities in the Asia Pacific Rim.

In recent years, some profits from the company have been invested in projects he initiated and ran overseas.
