Lake House and Casita Retreat

Rustic charm, relaxing settings combine to make dream homes a reality

New Log and Timber-Frame Buildings Nearing Completion in Central Texas

Nestled among the hills and forests of Central Texas, overlooking a lake front retreat and surrounded by the quiet solitude, Southwest Log Homes and Southwest Log and Timber Works are nearing completion of a new type of custom home retreat. This location touts a 10,000+ square foot main house, 50 yards off a tranquil lake and surrounded by 60 foot trees. Included on the property is a one-of-a-kind authentic log cabin home, affectionately called "The Casita" which hearkens back to a true historical-type elevated cabin, surrounded with antique-styled drawn glass window panes and accented with antique lighting fixtures. The Casita is surrounded with wall-to-wall and ceilings with antique unique wood planks and timbers.

When finished, this project will have been in the works for almost one year, starting with caring out the land, building access roads, excavation and land development , which took a great deal of time before any timber was put in place. Both properties are surrounded and linked together by beautiful, rust-colored stones which frame columns and exterior portions of the buildings, provide comfortably-winding walk-ways and accent the warm timber frame homes styling. The theme of the exterior presents a wonderful combination of both wood and stone.
