Exterior volume

View of the guesthouse from the driveway. This front facade will have two very large barn doors which cover the windows when not in use and during the hot summer months.

The roofers started and completed there work over the course of two days.

We liked the view from the roof.

Connecting the inside to the outside

The Shiner guesthouse is coming along well with a few bumps along the way, including the loss of our camera which had a lot of the framing images. Its almost completely dried in now.

Great thing about a farmhouse on lots of land: you don't have to worry about privacy all that much. So, we tried to create cross views through the interior to connect the inside and out while framing shots of the beautiful landscape.

The double height living space spans across the barn-style volume from east to west so it should get a great cross breeze (its always windy in Shiner).
