Empty nesters “need” a garage for working on vintage race cars, and cozy media/reading room with barn doors to shut out distractions. A mix of open spaces: great room and outdoor living (both with view), along with friendly ones: nook with wood ceiling and small office corner, make this Hill Country Fusion home perfect for two. Practicalities include the casita with separate business entrance, laundry room space for pets and projects, full stairs to an attic kept cool by spray foam insulation. Luxuries include: big closet, Miele appliances and mesquite eating bar and rainwater collection to keep the grass green.
This home won Best Product Design - Custom Home in the 2012 MAX Award competition, hosted by the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin.
