"Elliot ...was responsible for understanding our lifestyle and desires (and applied it) to conquering the challenge of our sloping lot."

Larry + Charlotte Petty
Charlotte and Larry Petty invited me out to visit their lot in Kerrville Texas, and after thirty minutes invited me out to their ranch in the country away from the hurried life in Kerrville. We spent the afternoon discussing their vision for the new home in the city, it was immediately apparent that they had good taste.

Some relatives of theirs had a home designed by San Antonio Architects Lake/Flato. The Petty's were interested in the Texas Regional style, but without the industrial iron and metal. They wanted an open plan, and had a modest budget in comparison to their relatives. Although they wanted a single story house, the lot did not allow for it.

Upstairs we incorporated a bonus room that is strictly for resale, and future owners. The costs to incorporate the structural components of the bonus room were insignificant in comparison to the potential addition to the resale value of the home.
