A beautiful lot near Leakey Texas, in the hill country was the site for this uniquely Texas residence. Beverly Cook wanted to utilize the "small home concept" as discussed in Sarah Susanka's book, The Not So Big House for a home to retire to and for her family for their yearly family reunions.

We incorporated cedar tree columns, with durable Austin Limestone and a clay tile roof. Three true masonry fireplaces add warmth during the chilly hill country nights, and the ample covered porches on both floors protect the house from the brutal Texas summers.
