Tour

The craftsmen at Broman Design and Construction really value working with clients who have a strong sense of design, such as the Easleys. Their home was featured on the Heights Historic Home Tour in 1998 after we completely remodeled the home in 1997. This Houston Heights bungalow was completely restored with custom Arts and Crafts details, including custom birch cabinetry, paneling, historic wallcovering and painted finishes. The home was moved forward on the lot 13 feet to accomodate a 2 story garage with living quarters above.

The roof was raised to include 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, as well as a sewing room , and a home office and library upstairs. In the kitchen ,we custom built birch plywood cabinets with granite countertops.

The Living /Dining room features all sorts of custom woodwork: block paneling, built in cabinets, and coffered ceilings. Adding some period style,the owners chose several historic wallcoverings and painted finishes to compliment the Arts and Crafts design of the house. And then completing the total renovation, the Easleys planned extensive landscaping to include brick walkways and patios that coördinate with new porches and wrought iron fencing.
