I'm a serial home remodeler and completely meticulous with home details from cleaning to comfort. In our married life we've lived in 9 different houses, 5 of which we built from scratch or completely remade. When our first kiddo started driving we looked for a property closer to their school in order to keep them out of Austin traffic as much as possible. This location was great and the lot was large, unfortunately the buildings were awful. So, the great undertaking began. The Barn was the first structure to be remade and it served as our home-base as the main house was rebuilt after 50 years of aging and neglect. Now that construction is mainly finished throughout I'm taking on clients who have their own spaces to remake and sharing the barn with Austin travelers.
With a large family we tend to do things a little differently from the norm, so the barn is likely nothing like anything you've ever lived in before. It was built to be fun, funky and sturdy. We love family & friends, and entertaining while being cozy & comfortable. We feel fortunate to have more space than we regularly need, so we're happy to welcome guests who will love the barn as much as we do. Hosting here allows us to pay our property taxes, take the kids for an extra treat now and then and gives me a reason to buy more throw pillows and art than would normally be sensible for a barn.
With that oldest kiddo out of the house and off to college we may also become more frequent AirBnB guests as we'll be entering that stage where our family isn't all in one place. We believe in Texas hospitality whether you come to us or we come to you.
