Project Spotlight: Padre Island Residence

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.
