Welcome back from a long holiday weekend! We hope everyone was able to spend time with family and friends while also taking some time to reflect on the military men and women who gave their lives to bravely to protect this great country. We’re checking in today to introduce a new project we’ve been working on for the past year. We ran into a few delays after Harvey, but this custom home is finally wrapping up and we couldn’t be more excited to finally share it with all of you.
Because we’ve had several big projects going on at the same time, we haven’t been able to share every single one in real-time. Instead, we’re going to take you space by space and show you the construction process from start to almost finish, starting with the exterior and the main living space.
The homeowners of this custom home in Garden Oaks wanted a slight midcentury modern twist with a little bit of funk, which, with the help of Wild Rose Interiors, allowed us to add in a few unique features that made this home a lot of fun to work on.
The exterior is a classic combination of Hardie Board and brick but has a modern twist with an inky blue paint color, dark windows, contemporary-style garage doors that will eventually be painted, soon to be white-washed brick and tangerine-colored front door.
Stepping inside, the study and powder bath are at the front of the house, and as you look straight ahead you can see outside to the backyard courtesy of a wall of accordion-style patio doors in the main living space.
The contemporary staircase, with impressive windows, is open to the main living space. Since there are several small dogs living in the home, the homeowners opted for a glass lined staircase, which will functionally prevent puppy falls, while also providing an open, modern look in the center of the home (will have more pictures of this next time).
The guys fitting the stair treads, which will eventually be stained to match the engineered hardwood going in throughout the rest of the home.
The custom wine room is tucked alongside the staircase (you can see the framed out opening in the photos below). This space will be outfitted with white-washed brick and the windows and door will be painted the same black as the interior doors.
Looking into the main living space from the kitchen/dining area, which are open concept, you can get a better sense for how the staircase fits into the space. The glass railings will also allow the wine room to be more visible.
Before the hardwood floors could be installed, the tar and screeds went down followed by plywood and lastly the engineered hardwood. The living room also features a stacked stone fireplace, custom built-ins and a fantastic Sputnik chandelier.
Well- that seems like more than enough pictures for today. Next week we’ll be checking in on the progress of the kitchen, mudroom and laundry room, which are looking fantastic. Until then, have a great (short) work week.
