The Lost Cove house was a 1980’s two story ranch house with little protection from the brutal eastern morning sun. The owners wanted shade in their living space, a useable deck and the shrubs, trellis and other barriers to the ground floor removed. Solar studies were done to determine the length of the extended overhang. An unused balcony that obstructed the entrance was removed and new windows put in place of large glass doors. Overall the spaces inside function the way living spaces should, with circulation directed and focused. The outside of the house is reflective of the character of Central Texas homesteads...native stone, cool deep overhangs and porches, surrounded by oak trees and breezes.
