The Benefit Home is the annual construction of a home built mostly – if not entirely – through donations of construction management, materials, supplies, labor and monies of the members of the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Austin. The majority of net proceeds from the sale of the home on the open market benefit local charities as designated by HBA.

The Benefit Home offers the HBA a unique opportunity to give something back to the larger community, specifically to designated beneficiaries who are significantly and positively impacting the Greater Austin community.  What’s more, it’s a perfect example of how the 750+ members of the HBA contribute to the economic impact of the communities in which they build and make a direct impact on worthy causes within those communities

This year’s Benefit Home is in the Santa Rita Ranch (North) community, located at 116 Strata Drive, Liberty Hill, TX 78642.  The lot was generously donated by the developer, SRKC, LLC!

$392,990 
4-Bed, 3.5 Bath, 2-car garage
116 Strata Drive, Liberty Hill, TX 78642
Scott Felder Homes in Santa Rita Ranch 
MLS# 7541722

The HBA has selected the following beneficiaries for the 2016 Benefit Home:

  • Mobile Loaves & Fishes (Community First Village)
  • Dell Children’s Hospital
  • Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas

With this partnership, the beneficiaries will not only receive a contribution but a year-long partnership and promotional opportunity with the HBA’s, builder’s and developer’s efforts in public relations and outreach.

Barton springs infill residence by foursquare builders http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/12/barton-springs-infill-residence-by-foursquare-builders "This infill residence is simple, and beautiful. It features a multi-leveled stone-scaping front yard, complete with cement slabs for a walk path from the street to the entry. The magic happens once you enter the home, you feel as if the kitchen and family room serve dual purposes, first a space for gathering, dining, and relaxing, the other is a well designed pathway to the back yard. The large windows and sliding glass doors which you can view the pool and covered patio help create that unique feeling. More in the mood for a glass of wine and a book? There is a space for that also, walk out onto the screened-in porch, off of the family room, which host the reverse side of the open fireplace, private, cozy, and still a great view of the multi-level back yard. On the second floor, two open decks continue the pull back to the open air. The sliding glass doors in the master suite open to the private porch the backyard."

Completed in 2014 by Foursquare Builders, designed by Burton Baldridge Architects.

Foursquare Builders and Red Pants Studio had just started working together to capture the progress of construction on all of their projects mid year 2014. This infill project designed by Burton Baldridge in Barton Springs was just about complete when I first came alongside. It still stands as one of my favorite projects to see completed. The earliest onsite visit was in December of 2013 and back again in April of 2014.

Landscapes of the 2015 greater Austin HBA parade of homes http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/10/landscapes-2015-austin-HBA-parade-of-homes We've taken some time to look back at the interiors of the homes featured at the 2015 Greater Austin Parade of Homes. 

This week I want to take us back outside to these homes for a look at the curb appeal, landscape architecture, and pools of these homes. These five builders gave us a taste of five unique life style choices in the way they built these homes and the design of the yard, both front and back yards.

Any luxury home featured in a parade requires collaborative effort from many skilled artisans and craftsman to give them the sizzle and shine we have come to expect from a Parade of Homes, and with the outside being the first visual of the home its important to make it pop, its safe to say landscaping plays a very major part. 

What would the house like without the appeal from the curb? And in Central Texas what else would we expect to find in the back yard of your luxury home but a pool?

So our hats are off to the men and women who dedicated many hours in design, and many more in labor to deliver yards that are fit for these luxury homes which are nestled on the side of one of the many hills in the Texas Hill Country.

Images featured from the air are captured by the large platform drone we fly which carries a Nikon D800.

8 design looks from the 2015 greater Austin HBA parade of homes http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/10/8-design-looks-from-2015-greater-austin-HBA-parade-of-homes Each year the Home builders association of Austin showcases some of the area's builders at the annual Greater Austin Parade of Homes. Together the builders and the association hosts a three weekend eye-popping, display of current trends. These, must see, homes feature current trends in building techniques and materials, and highlight today’s trends in area's such as lighting, furniture, floors, and counter tops, just to name a few.  

With less than a month away from the opening of the 2016 Greater Austin Parade of Homes, I want to continue to look back at the photos I captured of the homes featured in the 2015 Parade of Homes. This week I want to highlight the interior design, furniture, and some art as well as build techniques. 

If I’m honest it’s the design trends I go to see, interior design, the architectural design, it's the form and the function, it’s the art of design and creative display that I enjoy viewing. Well, It's also my job as a photographer to see these things, and help communicate the collaborative process that architects, builders and interior designers go through to assemble any project.

These one-of-a-kind homes feature a little luxury, privacy, comfort, and a space for pampering.

We didn't always enjoy these luxuries. However thanks to centuries of civil engineering, today we enjoy such things as indoor plumbing, flushing toilets, heated water, electricity, and ventilation. These “luxuries” in our bathrooms are a result of two simple required functions, cleanliness and toilets. We have come a very long way from the Roman bath houses, and ancient civilization public toilet systems. For the most part, our modern concept of privacy in the toilet in relatively new. What will the future look like for us?

Owner's suites 2015 greater Austin HBA parade of homes http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/9/Owners-suite-2015-parade-of-homes It should be no surprise the owner’s suites of the 2105 Greater Austin HBA Parade of Homes are some of the grandest spaces presented. We all know, and expect, the owner’s suite to have all the best, after all this room is where we spend most of our time resting, escaping, and recharging.

The interior designers definitely expressed for us what we could use in our own space. From the bed placement, to the use of furniture, and lighting, these talented designers put on a display of color and texture.  

Side note

Although the larger size of the owner’s bedroom began to increase post WWII. The birth of the “owner’s suite” came in the mid 1980’s while “McMansion” homes were being built. Large homes were more affordable as the energy costs were down. (“McMansion”— a phrase coined by architect Sarah Susanka ). Owner’s suites came to be more desirable as home owners started to look at homes less as shelter and more as a retreat.  They have grown to be a private oasis inside your personal paradise. While much has changed in the years since then, owner’s suites continue to grow in demand, and functionality.

family rooms 2015 Greater Austin Parade Homes http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/9/family-rooms-2015-Greater-Austin-Parade-Homes     Introduced to us by George Nelson and Henry Wright in 1945, the term “family room” was used to described the "room without a name", or what was the biggest room in the house that could serve as the casual-multiple needs room. (Tomorrow’s House by George Nelson and Henry Wright). Well, 70 years after the vision of the all-purpose gathering space, we are living up to their description-only a few differences. See what you think – The family room is designed to be a place where family and guests gather for group recreation like talking, reading, watching TV, and other family activities. Often, the family room is located adjacent to the kitchen, and at times, flows into it with no visual breaks. A family room often has doors leading to the back yard and specific outdoor living areas such as a deckgarden, or terrace.”. I think they nailed it 70 years ago as they described the modern home needs moving forward. 

During the 2015 Greater Austin HBA Parade of Homes five builders showed us the visual definition of a family room. Open floor plan, common-informal-space, in the heart everything family.

dining-rooms-2015-Greater-Austin-Parade-Homes http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/9/dining-rooms-2015-greater-austin-parade-homes

Current trends show we are “opening” our kitchens to accommodate our daily lives, adding to the Kitchen Island, or building islands that accommodate. Today, families are on the move, counter tops are for homework, science projects, office space, the junk pile, and occasionally for eating.

However, numbers show that we still love our dedicated dining rooms. Its idyllic visions of big gatherings for holidays, or just having friends over. It’s what we want to do, but rarely end up doing.

In the 2015 Greater Austin Parade of Homes the architects, builders, and designers showed us the freedom of having our cake and eating it too. These wide open floor plans allow for a formal space and a family space to enjoy life either way, on the go, our sit and stay awhile.

headshots/and a little fun http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/8/headshots/professional-and-a-little-fun Today, social media and the digital age allow you and your company to be seen by millions of people with just the click of a mouse. Here at Red Pants Studio we like to remind our friends and clients of the importance of an updated headshot can do for you and your business and the impact that will make for you, however, let's take that a step further, and take a "customer point of view" at your company or business. What will you-your customers see? Will it only be the professional side, or can it be more?

Many companies are seeing the value of having a "softer side" set of photos added to professional headshots, these photos can show a little more of the corky, silly, or lighter side to your company and still have taste. These days, I see many industries working towards the opportunity to show off the fun side of who they are and who makes up their company when they can. Its called "humanizing" your business for your clients to see. 

Pictured below are a few fun clicks from the day we worked with or friends at smart touch interactive. They are a top notch provider to of digital real-estate marketing solutions, and offer great options to agents and builders. Come by their website to learn more about them. www.smarttouchinteractive.com/about-us/   

By the way we do offer corporate rates on headshots, and we can come to you.

How updating your headshot keeps you current. http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/3/how-updating-your-headshot-keeps-you-current portraits, photography, headshotsProfessional head shotsOften the first contact people have with you is a digital one, online. Especially now we're all so active on social media. Profile pictures create the first impression of you and you’re business. Why not make it a good first impression, and show others that you care about the details.
Contact Drew Rice today to update your headshot at 512-998-3672 or at drew@redpantsstudio.com

 

 

From a personal and social perspective, having an updated profile picture indicates to others that you’re active with social media. It also sends the message that you’re current with technology, and if you’re on the job market, it can help reinforce the picture you’re trying to paint of yourself to prospective employers – if you take a little bit of time to do it the right way.

One trick we recommend is to use the same image across social media platforms, websites, emails, and print as possible, this helps people recognize you and build that full image of you I mentioned earlier. If a potential employer is looking for you online and sees the same photo of you on your blog that she sees on a professional or academic site related to your field of work, it confirms that you’re active in your field.

Tribute to craftsman_Foursquare builders_concrete crew http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/3/foundation-_floors-_all_in_the_concrete_pour "Foursquare Builder's Project Managers choose ONLY the BEST SUBCONTRACTORS for our projects. This video is dedicated to our Concrete Crew, who are the Best in the Business-because. Modern Architecture demands no less."

I could not agree more with the words above from Foursquare Builders. 

When it comes to pouring concrete there is no substitute for hard work and a rock-star team, that is what I learned from spending the morning with this crew. From the dark of the morning to the sunshine of mid day this crew made this tough and long task look easy. 

I was surprised and excited to learn that the foundation you watch them pour is not just a foundation, but the actual, visible, floor of this home. Thats right, no wood, no polish, nothing will lay on-top, just straight concrete. I am excited to follow this project designed by Dick Clark and Associates with the cameras. 

 

I hope you enjoy my tribute to this team, they are true craftsman, and artisans

 

 

 

Please keep watching for videos on our websiteyoutube and vimeo channel. They are sure to include more of this home, O and J concrete, and the Luxury Modern Home Builder, Foursquare Builders

Searsucker in Austin Texas. Re-inventing the new american classic http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2016/1/social-dining-experience-at-the-searsucker-in-austin-texas

 

Re-inventing, Relaxing, Social Dining Experience are just a few words that Searsucker uses to describe the the resturaunt in general. I have to agree with that, this is a great place to meet up, hang out, and share time with friends and family while downtown Austin.

Friendly staff, professional mixologists, and the food, well you'll just have to go experience it for yourself.

Just to put an idea in your mind, Farm bird lollipops.

"The Hand off" from 8-4-2014 http://www.redpantsstudio.com/blog/2015/9/the-hand-off-from-8-4-2014

 

It's hard to believe that it was a year ago that James Bruce and I took a little road trip to Valhalla to have the masters of golf sign a painting that would help raise funds for Els for Autism.

Our client, Robert Stephens Homes, would later auction the painting to raise funds and awareness, and would also be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of his Luxury Home Magazine Tour of Homes property to the Els for Autism foundation and the the local, Austin, affiliate, The Austin Autism Society. 

Funds help further their world class research, development, and community, support in treating Autism.  

"it is, at the heart of, who we are to give" For some it is friendship, others, advice, time, friendship, financial support, or most powerful, love.
