Southern Living Idea House 2018
- Austin, Texas
- The Ridge House is a 3,500 square foot, 4BR/4.5BA home with over 700 square feet of covered outdoor porch space. Built in the 1980s, the existing house was outdated but structurally sound. Over the decades, remodels had rendered interior rooms devoid of natural light. Odd angles and poorly proportioned spaces required reconfiguration to create more comfortable and functional rooms. Some structural modifications were necessary. In the new Kitchen, Pantry, Powder Room and Laundry area, the rearrangement of walls required a few new beams in the first floor ceiling. The goal of creating a beautiful home, suitable for a contemporary Central Texas family, was accomplished through careful planning and construction by the architect, interior designer and contractor.
