  • One of 2 bungalows in Houston classified as Asian, this home had seen better days. The homeowner wanted to update the home for his retirement years. We created a master plan for the multiple renovations and undertook renovating the home over several years to allow the homeowner to "breathe" between projects. Every surface of the home and rental space were renovated with an eye to keep the unique character of the home.
