James, your work is wonderful. I am curious if these are fiberglass or aluminum clad glazings. From the interior photos they seem to be fiberglass. Could you please confirm? I am doing a home with similar stone by Brauer and a light gray ss metal roof like this. So this look really helps the client visualize though the home design is totally different. TIA!

The windows are wood with aluminum clad on the exterior. The wood on the interior warms up the house and the aluminum on the exterior provides great longevity for the life of the windows.

Unfortunately, we do not know the exact name of the tile used in the pool. We'd be happy to refer you to a tile dealer we've worked with in the Austin, TX area that have great selections. Please email us at brookef@larue-architects.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Home Building: 8 Ways to Stick to Your Budget
2. Identify the pieces within your budget. Clients often don't identify all of the pieces of the budget. Sure, the largest piece might be the construction costs, but there will be many other costs. They can include land costs, legal fees, moving, decorating, landscaping, impact fees, architectural fees, permit costs and financing costs. At the outset, identify all of your potential costs and assign each a value. It would be a shame to finish the house but have no money left for landscaping or furniture.

I like how the sitting area or patio has a vaulted ceiling so that it does not look too boxy. However, I would prefer a peaked ceiling to match our general theme.
