New technology, reclaimed materials and an enormous protective roof combine in this Hawkins home for irresistible modern rustic charm

Here’s a repost of an article on Houzz.com. I don’t care for every aspect of this home, but I do appreciate the eclecticism consistent throughout the home.  The glass bottle rammed earth wall and the red cedar soaking tub are a nice touch. I also like the standard doors mounted sideways in a few locations, in the role of awning windows.  To read the article and see the photos for yourself, click the “Houzz Tour: Under a Metal Canopy in Texas” link here, or above the image slideshow. I hope you find this as interesting as I did, and perhaps a little more, so much so, that you’ll “follow” this blog!

Here’s an article written by an architect about project site visits.  I enjoyed the read, as it is a good look into some of the nuances of the “boring” (as some designers see it) side or architecture… the foundation.  I subscribe to the “Life of an Architect” blog, and if you have a similar interest in architecture, perhaps you’ll subscribe, too!  (And, while you’re in the subscribing mood, if you’re not already, don’t forget to subscribe to this blog, as well.)
