"When we drove by and saw the tree,
I knew it was the house.
I knew we'd live here for a long time.


There was just
something about it."


It was our first house.

It was a great house to live in—our very first.

We loved our neighbors, the area is fantastic and close to everything.
But we thought about moving to something a bit newer.








Then Hurricane Ike hit.

The house was completely safe, but the timing gave us
the opportunity to completely remodel everything:
Top to bottom, inside and out.

For two years we upgraded every system, redesigned every room, reworked drainage and grading in case of another Ike and traveled the world for unique fixtures and accoutrements. It became the Greater Houston Builders Association's very first Green Remodel project.

And we added on.

We now had two homes: The one we always loved and
our brand new, sparkling jewel.

We cannot wait for someone to love this house as much as we have.

Will it be you?
