Inspiration for a modern exterior home remodel in Austin

Modern Exterior, Austin

1000sf new house with very tight budget. Owner had looked at prefab, but we found that in the end they were more expensive than to design & build a small house on site. The project is a composition of elements that are tied together by a strong circulation axis--the boardwalk--that organizes guest parking at one end, takes the visitor through the carport, across a Zen courtyard and to the front door. From there it proceeds through the house, across the back yard and terminates at a wood deck that cantilevers over a limestone bluff that overlooks the creek below and the nature preserve beyond.

    The client was fascinated by prefab houses, but could not afford one. I designed a conventionally-built compact house with steel siding to look similar to a prefab house. The cost was much less expensive than a pre-fab house.
