We have lived in a beautiful old (for Austin) house in an amazing (and terrible) location for the past 7 years. Much of this blog will be dedicated to a major renovation/addition that is about to begin, and the why’s, how’s and what’s of all that goes into such an endeavor. We will get into many aspects of this project in the hopes that it might help others avoid some of the mistakes we have made, and learn some of the things that it took us a while to learn, and to give some insight into our process and priorities. Some of this will be specific to Austin, some specific to historic remodels, some to humid climates, some to high nosed architects, some to city living, and some to homeowners.
