Engineered Reclaimed Oak Flooring, Reclaimed Barnwood, Ipe Decking left unfinished to naturally silver.
This project utilizes our Sovereign Plank flooring throughout the home, Wheaton Wallboard for the exterior siding and Ipe Decking on the upper decks. The Ipe decking was intentionally left unfinished so it would turn silver with the sunlight. Our sophisticated reclaimed wood products creates a perfect blend of old and new for this reclaimed masterpiece!
Insights from the Builder
Located within the confines of a 400-acre, high fenced game ranch stocked with various exotic species of antelope from Africa, you can’t help but gaze up the mountain and focus on this splendid project. The home overlooks numerous spring fed creeks that provide a year round source of “live water” running from one end of the ranch to the other. Deep swimming holes lined with massive boulders line the edges, creating beautiful waterfalls.
The residence serves as a weekend and summer get away for a growing Houston family with 2 young boys (pre-teens). It contains all the necessities — and then some — to provide the ultimate entertainment setting for family, friends and guests.
The residence was designed to be a Texas Hill Country Reclaimed Resort style home. Large family gathering rooms were created and accented with interior walls of stone, a massive see thru fireplace that separates the Trophy Room from the Family/Dining area and Kitchen.
In addition, the master wing was designed to have maximum privacy and is located the furthest distance away from the main living areas.
The finish out on the house is accomplished thru exceptional quality and the use of historical timbers reclaimed from 100 year old barns. A standing seam metal roof compliments the board & batt exterior siding application. Dry stacked stones that are field blended in custom mixes highlight the bronze wood windows to finish off the masterpiece.
The view from the porches is 10-25 miles in certain directions and helps capture the prevailing breezes during hot Texas Summer nights. At this house, the stars literally come to you, you don’t have to reach out to them.
