Week 15 – Kitchen & Living Room Renderings

Massive thunderstorms earlier in the week has slowed down progress. A visit to the site yesterday didn’t have enough noticeable changes to make it worth taking pictures. Things were about dried out though and the plumber was scheduled today or tomorrow to start their tasks.

Here are some renderings of the main living area that includes dining, kitchen and living room. Below is a view from the dining room. Off to the left you can see the outdoor patio space.

These renderings already include the majority of our appliance selections and finishes so it a fairly accurate representation of what it will look like when complete.

Week 7 – House Renderings

I went by the site on Saturday and not a lot of additional work as been done since the footing were poured. Most likely, the concrete needed to cure before they could do additional work. Fun Fact: Concrete doesn’t “dry”; it’s actually an exothermic reaction between the water and cement that causes it to get hard. That architectural engineering degree from UT finally has paid off!

So while there will most likely be work done during the week, here are some additional photos of the house as seen from the street.

Here is a photo of the original house.


One of main design considerations for this project was to respect the original footprint and incorporate some of the design elements from the original house. MF Architecture has done a fantastic job taking our requirements for our new house while respecting the original house and site location.
