Austin Craftsman Style – Design Build
Thanks for visiting our Austin Craftsman Style home on Lake Austin! Here are some finished photos for this house. We felt that a Craftsman style home with a deep porch would be a pleasing design for a house on this lot. The floor plan takes advantage of the view, and positions the house just right on the lot. The design brings people out to the front to enjoy the lake view.
The deep roof overhang creates a sheltering cover for front porch. The house sits above the road, so there is a feeling of “overlook” out over the yard to the lake. Hog wire was used for guard rail to keep the view open. Shelter and overlook are good feelings to build into a home design.
The side of the house shows the nearby water view. Deer are an issue for plants, and the tall shade trees don’t work some some grasses.
We had second thoughts about the rear porch roof height. I would have been better to have a taller roof to allow more view inside.
Living – Dining
The open living takes in views on both sides.
Interior spaces can be very open and connected to outdoors, and still feel cozy and warm inside.
The nearby lake view was driving force in the design.
Back yard is magical!
