Description
Continuing the tradition of previous conventions, three Austin architects will lead tours providing a candid narrative of designing and building their own homes. Some of the topics addressed will include: creating additions that preserve the historic character of a neighborhood; how to address moisture problems and energy improvements in a historic landmark; challenges of restoring a 100-year-old structure and adapting it to new standards of living; strategies relating to the integration of sustainable materials; the effect of orientation on occupants, and the cost-benefits of insulation. The architects will also discuss what it’s like standing in the shoes of the client and engaging in construction from a new perspective. Prior to this tour, there will be a panel discussion featuring the experience of the architects creating these three houses (see session 309).
