July’s residential project spotlight is a 3‑bedroom, 3‑bath, 1,500+ square foot residence built on Padre Island on the Texas coast near Corpus Christi.
The residence was designed by the Corpus Christi architectural firm, Freeman Schroeder Architects, who have completed several projects with the Bautex Wall System. In the words of principal architect Ira Freeman, “Bautex is a favorite tool in my toolbox in which to design and build.”
Bautex was selected for this project for many reasons. Because of the Texas coast location, they desired a residence with a high level of resiliency to potential coastal weather conditions, moisture resistance and energy efficiency. These were driving factors in choosing the right products to build with. According to Mr. Freeman, “When you wade through what is out there to build with, the choice was simple.”
Another important factor in choosing Bautex was the acoustics. According to Mr. Freeman, “It’s incredibly quiet!”, and that’s immediately noticeable when you enter the home. The Bautex Wall System, with its energy efficiency, resistance to mold & mildew, 4‑hour fire rating, storm safety and the fact that it contains no wood or organic material to attract termites, is perfectly suited for use in coastal situations to meet these and many other needs for a residence.
The ultimate desire and benefit to the new homeowners is the “peace of mind” they receive. Please check back as we will have more great residential projects to share.
