Demo Starts on Hyde Park Residence

Construction on CRA’s extensive remodel and addition to a historic 1930’s Hyde Park residence began last week in Austin, Texas.  The interior primarily consisted of ship lap pine with some of the original wall paper maintained below the thin gyp board cladding that was added later.  In keeping with the goals of the historic district, the existing interior flooring will be refurbished and reused in the new house along with the historic windows and exterior siding.  The project is seeking a five star rating in the Austin Energy Green Building Program as such waste materials will be stockpiled by type for recycling per the programs requirements. We’re excited to see this project start down the road to completion.  Click here to see some images of the house in our “On the Boards” section.  Or to see an animation fly around of the project Click Here.
