Shoal Creek Custom Home
Tree branch was claimed from a 200+ year old tree felled at Lagoona Gloria in Austin Texas and created into a ladder leading to the loft by Artist Hank Waddell. Reclaimed Hardwood Flooring from original home was salvaged and used in master suite. Concrete floors in kitchen and breakfast room, Hickory Hardwood Flooring throughout the rest of the home. Shaded by trees, screened porches on first and second floor along with copula and electronic sky light as well as electronic openers on windows in upper levels, provide a perfect ciphone to draw out the summer heat. Screened in porch on first and second floor linked by staircase from breakfast room to the master suite allow for the feel of being in a tree house to the master suite. Home owners don't turn on their air conditioning until mid June because of the comfortable environment provided by positioning the home on the site, overhangs and drawing cooler air through the home from the outside. The owners are proud that their 3400 sq ft home, during the hottest months, electric bills only run $150,00/month. Loft over Master bathroom and master closet overlooking a vista view. This Five Star Energy Home was designed by Travis Gaylord Young of Studio Momentum, Austin, Texas and built by Katz Builders, Inc.
