About the Project

Our client asked our help in master planning a new family compound in place of the modest ranch house on their ranch in Austin County.

We designed three related buildings arranged around an existing giant oak tree to meet their needs for this multi-family ranch retreat:

a. A main house with shared kitchen, great room, bunk rooms, and wrapping porch.
b. A one-story 3-bedroom casita with kitchenette and porch.
c. A 1 ½ story 3-bedroom with a sleeping loft, kitchenette, and porch.

The design and layout of the buildings meets their desire for a central place for everyone from both sides of the family to gather together, while still having separate private casitas to retreat to.
