Tiki Island, Texas

Home Renovation – In Progress

Home Renovation – In Progress

The home was completely stripped of old vinyl siding, clad with Hardi siding and new impact resistant windows.

Home Renovation – Completed

The new wood flooring on the stairs was completely re-framed to give more head room at the lower landing. We installed new tongue and groove yellow pine ceilings in the family room along with a newly re-positioned fireplace with granite surround and an antique wood mantel. The breakfast room was re-configured to face the canal. The guest bath has a frameless glass shower, custom vanity, and marble counters.  The primary bath has a freestanding tub with port window and marble wainscot. The office has custom cabinets with cane inserts.


Tiki Island was an extensive home renovation project that involved raising ceilings, removing walls, moving walls, and new kitchen cabinetry. There is new plumbing along with three new bathrooms, an updated kitchen with new electrical and LED light cans. The home had a new air conditioning installed along with impact-resistant windows, new siding, trim, and a fireplace. Design work is by McGarr Design Studio in Houston, Texas.

Old Braeswood

Conversion – Garage to Photo Studio


Bluebonnet is a detached garage and apartment combined to create a two story photo studio space. Foundation and form work created a usable stained concrete floor. Unique framing, both structural and visual, created a two and a half story work space with a sweeping “theater style” balcony. Salvaged lights and fixtures were modernized internally and installed to add to the character. The design was developed by the artistic homeowners and a special thanks goes out to the Heights Metal Works for all of the custom iron work and on-site fabrication.
