Project Spotlight: Juliet St. - Austin

Our res­i­den­tial spotlight to start off the new year is a 1694 sq. ft. modern home for an Austin couple that is designed to fit a very tight Austin city lot.


The owners have lived on their property in Austin for over 20 years and want to stay here well into retire­ment. They had made some ren­o­va­tions to their existing home over the years, but it was not ful­fill­ing their needs any longer. 

Allan and Sue run an internet business related to wood­work­ing tools and have a sub­stan­tial YouTube following. This will be a net-zero home and workshop thanks to Bautex Wall System and the SIP roof. 

Bautex is being used for all exterior walls and the main partition wall on the first floor between entry/​office and his workshop. They are using a metal-foam struc­tur­al insulated panel (SIP) system for the roof bearing directly on the Bautex walls. There is no wood framing anywhere in the house as they are using metal studs on the second floor.


The office and workshop are located on the first floor, with the residence on the second floor. The workshop has a basement for storing his large wood­work­ing equipment. He uses a crane to hoist the equipment up and down. 

This unique Austin residence will have some great features including a swim jet pool in the backyard for exercise and relax­ation after work. The residence will also boast great views to downtown Austin, as the home is located just up the hill from Zilker Park and Lady Bird Lake.

This video interview is with the builder of this unique house who has been building with Bautex for several years.
