Since this is my first post for my new blog, I thought I'd start with an exciting project we are doing in Fort Worth. My company was chosen as builder of the 2009 Southern Accents magazine showhouse. The architect is Larry Boerder of Dallas and the interior designer is Joe Minton of Fort Worth.
The house is being built in the new Riverhills development in the center of Fort Worth which is part of the Edwards Ranch that was established in 1848.
The image above is the rendering of the house. It is a Cotswold style, stone house with a slate roof. It will have over 8,500 square feet of living space with 7,605 square feet of heated and cooled area and will exemplify an English style house built in the Cotswold region of England, appearing as it has been added on to over the years.
While we are busy building the house now, we have been working tirelessly with Larry Boerder and Joe Minton to make sure the house is exactly how it should be. Larry has spent numerous hours on the details, from overall scale of the house all the way down to the beam details. Joe and his staff are working on precise room finishes.
Starting around the end of October of next year the house will be open for tours. I will be adding several posts over the next months keeping you up to date on the project.
