Custom Home Features

Building a custom home means you’re not bound by someone else’s imagination, style or preferences and that you can create a home that meets all of your needs.

We love hearing our clients’ ideas and being able to bring them to life. Below are some frequently requested features to provide inspiration to help you imagine your next home.

Butler’s Pantry

A walk-in Butler’s pantry adds a whole new level of convenience and organization, keeping clutter at bay. In addition to the usual shelves for foodstuffs, you can keep the larger appliances (coffee makers, toasters, mixers, etc) off the counter but still accessible for daily use. This feature is also a favorite for entertainers to stage courses, serve and dish plates, keeping the rest of the kitchen clean so you can focus on your guests instead of any mess.

Wine Storage, Cellars or Grottos

For oenophiles and entertainers alike, custom cellars or grottos are a wonderful feature in a home. We’ve built small grottos off dining rooms and kitchens, and larger temperature-controlled cellars with their own tasting space. Your imagination is the limit!

Pet-Friendly Spaces

Home is where the dog (or cat) is! From designated rooms for pets with built in beds and climbing perches to dedicated dog washes and built in litter boxes, we’ve helped a lot of our homeowners create space especially for their furry family members.

Outdoor Kitchens / 4 Season Rooms

In Texas, with a little help of heaters or fireplaces and fans or misters, the outdoors can be pleasant almost year round. A fully operational outdoor kitchen is great for entertaining and makes cookouts and hosting gatherings convenient and easy. Add in fully retractable glass doors to open up the indoors to the out and double the size of your entertaining area.

Mother-In-Law Suites Guest Suites / Casitas

Separate space for guests makes for great guests. Affording your visitors privacy and some of their own comforts like a kitchenette, sitting area and separate entry make for great stays for everyone from in-laws, the kids when visiting back from school or if you have a house-sitter while you’re out of town.
