Hyde Park Addition

Austin, TX | Addition & Renovation

This bungalow in historic Hyde Park needed an additional bathroom, upgraded Laundry room, and interior storage to make it more livable. Great care was taken to integrate the addition into the existing home and to ease construction (minimize costs). Salvaged materials were reused to maintain the character of the 1930s bungalow.
