This home in Texas has a contemporary farmhouse feel to it

When architects at Aamodt / Plumb were commissioned to design this home for a young family in Austin, Texas, there was one little issue…they only had 12 months to design and build the whole thing.

 

Working with Bensonwood, a high-tech sustainable timber company, they were able to manufacture sections of the house in their factory off-site, and at the same time, all of the site-work and foundation work was performed by builder Risinger Homes, which significantly reduced the time it took to construct the home.

The home has two wings, a private wing for the family to sleep and work in, and a public wing for dining and entertaining.

Let’s have a look inside.

Just inside the front door, there’s a custom-built unit with bench seating and plenty of storage.

There’s a matching custom unit, with shelving, that lines the hallway, and splits the living/kitchen areas from the entrance.

In the living room, a vaulted ceiling makes the space feel open and airy.

In the kitchen, a large ‘L’ shaped island provides plenty of counter space for preparing meals.

Dark stairs, leading up to the second floor, contrast with the bright white walls.

In the master bathroom, a custom-made concrete vanity with dual sinks has been included.

In the second bathroom, a smaller stand alone sink has a shelf made from wood, that matches the door.
