21st Century Bungalow
- Austin, Texas

This client came to us after his small Barton Heights cottage burned down. Determined to rebuild in the same central neighborhood he came to us with some very challenging criteria - build a home that will not burn, fits into the existing small-scaled neighborhood and is extremely energy efficient and durable. And one other thing - do it inexpensively.

This home embodies the best of modern building methods & materials coexisting with the best of traditional design principles.
