Custom Home Design Trend: Indoor-Outdoor Living

Most custom home design trends tend to fade away over time (remember shag carpet and popcorn ceilings?), but one we’ve seen getting more popular every year is the indoor-outdoor space. These blended areas give homeowners extra space to entertain friends, be with family, or just let in a little extra light.

Need space to entertain?

For many of our clients, their outdoor spaces — porches, lanais, patios — are just as important as bedrooms and bathrooms because they’re where the most and best memories are made.

There’s nothing quite as fun as hanging out on the porch with family and friends as the steaks grill and the kids splash in the pool, or as relaxing as curling up with your morning coffee and watching the sunrise together.

The Texas Hill Country is known for its beautiful views and great weather, and residents want to spend as much time as possible enjoying them both.

We work with our clients to make sure their custom home is oriented to give their outdoor spaces the most room, the perfect balance of shade and sun, and the best views possible, allowing them to enjoy the areas throughout the year.

Want lots of natural light?

If you want to make the landscape a part of your home’s decor, large windows and skylights are an easy way to bring the outdoors right into your living room. The natural light makes your home feel bigger and brighter, and lets you enjoy unobstructed that view you love.

But what about bills? Won’t big windows make heating and cooling my custom home more expensive?

Your home’s lot placement can minimize heating and cooling costs, and we install double-paned, low-e glass in every home we build — this keeps bills lower while keeping you comfortable no matter the temperature. This is one case where you can have your cake and eat it too!
