We are so pleased with this amazing bungalow transformation. Built in 1930, this home was in utter disrepair when Making Modern Home bought it. Instead of tearing the home down like many other developers, we saw the potential! We saved the old wood trim work including the doors and old archway.

You won't believe the transformation of this once forlorn French Place bungalow. Completed early 2015, Making Modern Home lovingly enlarged and remodeled this space into a functional, attractive family home on a very limited budget. Our interior and exterior design, floor plan revisions, and project management made the most of the existing home. We expanded into the attic to add two bedrooms and bathroom. We had to fit a stairwell into the existing footprint. Ochona architecture did a brilliant job making it work! The homeowners love their home and complimented the interior design with their thoughtful decor and style. The home now has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 living areas, vaulted spaces, and a kitchen as the hub of home! From the beginning Making Modern Home knew the way to add value was expanding into the attic; it wasn't easy getting the right structural upgrades and floor plan in place, but we are thrilled with the results and the homeowners are appreciative of all the value added! Notice that we reused the dining room hutch as a linen cabinet in the downstairs bathroom. We also plumbed for a gas fireplace to be added in the future in the formal living room. Our favorite feature is the awesome Jeldwen windows we designed.
Why are there no true lofts in Austin? Making Modern Home redesigned this once boring, basic Sabine condo into a truly amazing, urban downtown loft. The whole unit was defined by the brick that we added (it's actually ceramic tile!). We choose bold navy color wall, gold accents, and higher-end fixtures. Now the condo feels like a real downtown loft. We did have to work with a large existing sectional sofa in a tiny footprint, but we managed to find an unconventional, but highly functional layout! The investors expertly implemented the whole design and brought the great idea of the lofted second bedroom! They are happy with the premium fully furnished luxury rental!

After a thoughtful and full remodel, this modern ranch has come alive! Now, this home epitomizes the Austin indoor-outdoor lifestyle. The refinished white oak floors (and new floors in the kitchen to match) serve as a foundation for the other finishes in the home. The kitchen has Ikea Applaud cabinets (that look remarkably high end due to quality installation and planning) and shittake color Caeserstone countertops with a carerra marble backsplash, Completing the kitchen is the champagne bronze faucet and Bertazzoni range. The bathroom has brass fixtures, black hex tile floor, and carerra marble walls for a classic look that's still modern The original interior doors were restored to bring much needed character to the home. We hope that our renovation and staging celebrates everything this home and neighborhood has to offer! CHECK BACK SOON FOR BEFORE PICTURES.

Making Modern Home is thrilled to just finish this stunning Mid Century Modern Ranch on one acre in South Austin. Despite the fact that this home was an investment property (flip) I made some bold design choices including the use of "cementi" tile for both bathroom floors, a graphic tile backsplash, and all brass or black hardware. The end result is stunning! See below for more detail on how to find brass drawer pulls for under $4!
Here is one of my recent projects. It really came down to the details. By selecting era appropriate hardware paint colors, white hex tile flooring with black floret detail in the bathroom, and by taking out all the door hardware, stripping it, polishing it, fixing it, and re-installing it (big thanks to my carpenter who made this his labor of love) this Hyde Park Bungalow became charming, neighborhood appropriate and appealing to buyers. Check out the sweet bungalow front porch complete with a flag and fern. More pictures at the WORK section of this website.
Here I am featured on KXAN news discussing Austin's tedious permit process! They cut most of my content when I mentioned how I really feel :)
The permitting and inspection process is daunting, time consuming, and expensive, but it is manageable. Let me help you through it!
JUST COMPLETED! The design vision for this run down house in a quiet, traditional neighborhood was to create Modern Hacienda with a MINUSCULE Budget. We achieved this by painting the reused cabinets a fresh green, pairing it with oak butcher block, using great looking warm laminate floors (seriously, they look amazing!), readily available lighting, and fresh trim. The floorplan was unaltered. We used a real carrera marble shower surround and honed green slate flooring. It just went on the market, but it's probably already pending because this modern hacienda is capturing so much buyer attention. Photos by others. Listed by Castle Hill Investments.

Exciting new project! This sweet 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with vaulted ceilings, 1 car garage, large trees and yard, is going to be great. Peaceful neighborhood, but close to everything 78745 and 78704 have to offer. The house will have just the right amount of quaint vintage charm but it will be warm modern (slighting MCM). Bamboo floors, colorful accents, stainless steel and cherry butcher block countertops, penny tile, salvaged wood details will make this house irresistible. Yet the price should be accessible. Since it is just south of Ben White, you will get a lot more for your money :)
