We engaged Tim Cuppett Architects to help us find a space solution for our growing family, we had outgrown our small ranch house and with a second child on the way, it was soon going to exceed maximum capacity. We had seen their work throughout the city and they came highly recommended by friends and industry professionals in Austin.
We were open to remodeling or a complete rebuild when Tim met with us to discover our needs, wants and wishes. He was determined to find a solution that was custom-built for us, which was imperative to us, as we had met with other architects determined to fit us into one of their boxes, literally. Tim initially presented us with options for a remodel and ultimately, as a team, we decided to teardown and rebuild in order to get the space, look and feel we craved.
The project itself took 13-months and was truly an enjoyable process with an exceptional outcome. We ended up with a modern design with traditional materials. It's designed with symmetrical precision, giving us all the benefits of an open, spacious floor plan and reinforced with the trusted quality of traditional materials.
I know we had a very different experience than most doing similar projects with different teams in the area, and for that I'm extremely grateful.
This was my first time building house, and working with Tim, Dave and Adrianna (as well as their project managers) for over 2 years was an excellent first experience. The TCA team is assuredly experts in their field, but they also took into consideration our opinions and needs, which allowed the house to develop organically into a true one-of-a-kind home. Having an in-house designer was important to me as we were able to select finishes, fixtures and even our paint colors early in the process which cut down on change orders and delays. The other element to TCA's model that facilitated clear and consistent communication between us, our builder and TCA was having a dedicated on-site manager. Dave, a partner at TCA, was excellent at driving the project through any unexpected changes or delays, we felt like we had a strong advocate in him throughout the build.
We hired Tim Cuppett Architects because their of their exceptional, creative work and expected to end up with a beautiful house, but we didn't expect the other more collaborative aspects of the the project to be as inclusive or thorough as the TCA team provides to clients. I would recommend them to anyone who desires innovative creativity and professional expertise.
