Ranch Foreman’s House
Designed to be “Eclectically Texas”, the Ranch Foreman’s house showcases 200-400 year old timbers that have been reclaimed and mixed with materials native to South Texas. The residence features dry stacked stones, tin, wood cased windows, hardi plank with vertical batts, and handmade barn doors designed to represent the feeling of an old barn.
Simplicity was a driving factor in the design/build process of this residence. From hand hewn timbers, to the extensive use of stone both inside and outside the home, the owner opted to create a “working ranchers” residence. It uniquely represents the very best of Texas with its large country kitchen, a well-designed mud room for collecting muddy boots and rain coats, and ample open spaces with large vaulted ceilings to provide plenty of room for taxidermy collections and various antiques displays.
Due to the utilization of stained concrete floors, reclaimed timbers, wood flooring, barn wood ceiling treatments, wood casement windows, propane appliances, flash heating water systems and soybean insulation, the residence is extremely energy efficient and green in nature.
