Where The Stories of Life Unfold

When the opportunity to purchase this home became available to us years ago, we jumped at the chance. It was an uninspiring, dark almost one room shotgun house, with a poorly designed addition, but if you squinted, closed one eye, jumped up and down on one foot, and pulled out your thinking cap, you could see the potential. Yep..it needed a little work.

We immediately stripped the addition off and waited until the right family, who wore the same rose colored glasses that we did, walked through the door. They had vision and started designing their forever space.  It's inspiring (and a little bit addicting) to witness the transformation and see the space rise to it's potential!

Interior designer, Kaci Lyford, owner of Patina Green Home and Market was hired to collaborate with the busy family on design details, but as she states and we agree, the homeowner had incredible taste and made all of our jobs a breeze!  I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this collaboration and the end result...well, it speaks for itself. 

There will be open shelves and a four inch marble back splash added this week. The vintage kitchen window was purchased during Antiques Week in Round Top, TX by the homeowner.

The plumbing fixtures in the kitchen are "living brass" which is un-lacquered, so they will only get more beautiful with time!

The flooring is salvage, as is the mantle. The two leaded glass windows flanking the fireplace were purchased from Tumbleweeds Architectural Supply Company in McKinney.

The paneled antique doors that were installed on barn slides were salvaged from a house in Upstate New York, and add tons of character. 

We used pieces of the leftover flooring for the laundry room countertop. The brick flooring is also salvaged and was used to brick the fireplace.

We love the use of an antique farm table instead of a traditional vanity cabinet in the powder bath. 

This amazing concrete tile was sourced locally from Riad Tile in Dallas, TX. 

The shower tile is handmade subway tile, an unusual 3" x 12", and gives a timeless yet custom look.

And our absolute favorite photo of them all. It's a beautiful reminder as to what we actually build; homes where the stories of life unfold.  Places where babies will come home for the first time, birthdays will be celebrated, living rooms where backpacks will be strewn across the floor and camp duffel bags unpacked, and front porches where tears are shed as kiddos turn into graduates and spread their wings. Oh, we build so much more than just houses.
