Hill Country Residence

Nestled into sloping topography, the design of this home allows privacy from the street while providing unique vistas throughout the house and to the surrounding hill country and downtown skyline. Layering rooms with each other as well as circulation galleries, insures seclusion while allowing stunning downtown views. The owners' goals of creating a home with a contemporary flow and finish while providing a warm setting for daily life was accomplished through mixing warm natural finishes such as stained wood with gray tones in concrete and local limestone. The home's program also hinged around using both passive and active green features. Sustainable elements include geothermal heating/cooling, rainwater harvesting, spray foam insulation, high efficiency glazing, recessing lower spaces into the hillside on the west side, and roof/overhang design to provide passive solar coverage of walls and windows. The resulting design is a sustainably balanced, visually pleasing home which reflects the lifestyle and needs of the clients.

What we normally use to protect our microconcrete or microcement floor, is Poly-urethane coating in matt or semi-gloss.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Brown
Nice orange-brown wood panelling paired with grays and whites and lots of light. It's rich and warm, but not oppressive.
Samantha Schoech added this to How to Get That Earthy-Chic Look
An accent wall of horizontal wood gives this spare, bright and neutral room a cozy modern cabin vibe.
Becky Harris added this to Inspired by Place: Bedrooms That Embrace Their Surroundings
Local character in Texas Hill Country. Even a minimalist bedroom can nod to the unique geography and ranch life in this part of the country. Details like the strong wood grains and the cowhide on the modern chaise longue provide a direct connection to the bedroom's rugged setting.
Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to Warm Up to Wood for an Eye-Catching Wall
Bed wall. A bed wall is a great location for a wood accent. I find the natural patina of wood to be very calming and a perfect choice for a bedroom. I especially like the way the texture of this wall gives just enough interest to this minimalist room but does not compete with the spectacular view.
Incite Design added this to Construction Timelines: What to Know Before You Build
Be realistic. It’s often difficult for homeowners to know what’s realistic for each phase of the construction process. For instance, one week to construct a kitchen is not realistic due to the number of services and trades involved — installers, plumbers, tile contractors. It would be foolhardy to think that everything could be done to satisfaction in such a short time. What’s also confusing is that timelines for suburban developments can be wildly different from a single luxury custom home. We have had clients ask us why a custom home costs more per square foot and takes longer that a tract home. The reason is that developers have crews that move from house to house and are dedicated to that development. This means that for all intents and purposes, they finish their work on one house and move on to the next. On a custom house, your framers might be a week late showing up (because their last job ran late), and then the next trade in line is thrown off as well. You can see how this can cause a domino effect on your project. Most contractors can’t wait around until the exact time they are needed on a site — they have to keep their crews busy, or they don’t get paid. So they tend to overbook rather than underbook to make sure they have enough work to keep them busy.
Laura Gaskill added this to 8 Reasons to Warm Up With a Wood Plank Wall
4. It warms up a minimalist home. Smooth concrete floors and architect-white walls can be stunning, but there’s no doubt that these sleek, modern favorites can seem stark. Enliven a minimalist space with an expansive wood plank wall in the living room or bedroom.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

et_86 added this to Bedroom Ideas
test, yeah seem to be able to add notes now
Donavan Liebsch added this to Donavan's ideas
platform bed, wall like large headboard
Patrick Lazarus added this to Sleeping Area
