The Next Step: STEPS

The new 30 foot high guesthouse we’re building needs a grand staircase entrance. Here we are finalizing the design. There  will also be a wraparound staircase all the way to the top front deck.
By far one of the most fun projects I’ve ever worked on. Will keep you posted.

Spring Renovations

Spring is the time for fresh starts. Here in Austin, even our beautiful land gets a makeover. Seas of bluebonnets cover our hills. We get just enough rain to grow the leaves back on our trees and make our grass just a little greener. Why not then, use this time of new beginnings to give your home a new look, and better functionality?

Close your eyes and picture this: You walk into your home after a long, tiring day, and head straight to the kitchen for a glass of ice cold water, because it really is starting to get hot out side. As you walk into your kitchen you’re startled for a second. Is this really where you live? Beautiful new cabinets, stunning granite countertops, gorgeous hardwood shelving… Yes, you do live here, but since the renovation, it feels like your house is brand new. It looks as fresh and inviting as the bluebonnets in your front yard.

Whether it’s your kitchen, your living room, your master bedroom, or even your entire house, we’d be happy to help you with your fresh start. We promise you’ll love it. Here is a before and after of one of our favorite renovations that we’ve done:

IS IT A BOOKCASE OR A DOOR?

YES!!!  Secret passageways, used historically for quick escapes and hiding royalty are coming back. Everyone needs  a mystery room in their house. What could be better for a kid than a top secret place. Let’s face it, hidden doors are just cool.

Almost as cool as the parents who get one built for their little spies.

Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire

“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,” is the beginning to one of the most famous holiday songs for a reason. There isn’t anything quite like a beautiful, crackling  fireplace during the holiday season to roast marshmallows by, open gifts next to, or to serve as a beautiful backdrop to your Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah or New Years Eve evening.

Traditional wood-burning, natural gas or electric, we’ll create the perfect, custom fireplace for you and your family. Now all that’s left is for santa to fill the stockings!We can even build a new house around the fireplace if you’d like. Now that would certainly make a nice present for the family this year.

Living in a Bus is no Bust

A young couple in North Carolina looking for a place to live wanted something a little different. They were looking for a slightly more alternative and portable living space, and well, they got it! This old school bus was completely remodeled into a fully functioning mini home, complete with bedroom, office, and kitchen areas. We especially love the elegant wood interior. For such a tiny space, it actually looks pretty comfortable! It just goes to show you that anything is possible if you have the ability to think outside the box. Or, in this case, inside the bus.  You can view the article here. We are Heritage Home Builders. We Build Trust. And we can also build this, or anything else for you and your family.

Light Up Your Back Yard with a Fire Pit

Great for entertaining guests, or just sitting outside on a quiet night roasting marshmallows, fire pits are a stunning addition to your backyard. We just love the limestone and the wooden benches in the left picture, and the fire pit built into a tree stump is gorgeous as well. How creative is that?
