Bunk House – Texas Hill Country
Nestled in the Texas Hill Country, this 200 acre site is the location of a bed/breakfast and an exotic animal breading ranch. The site was altered to accommodate a 4 acre lake and provide safe and secure areas of breading for animals like African Kudu, Arabian Oryx, Bongo and many others. This is the second building in a master plan which consists of: the lake, breading area, foreman’s residence, party barn and this bunkhouse for rental. The challenge is to include all of these features while not making the site seem congested.
Planned sites for the location of each building, among the trees and in different areas of the ranch, allow for the sense of space and solitude. The desire is to create architectural buildings that integrate with nature and reflect a contemporary twist to the influential and prevalent German Hill Country architecture of Texas. The aesthetic composition of each building consists of gables, natural/local stone, metal roof, metal siding, board and batten siding, broken pitches and covered patio’s which are all items typically reflective of German Hill Country architecture.
This quaint, two bedroom bunkhouse has a full kitchen and very large great room for entertaining. The casual, warm and comfortable feel of this home is accentuated by the use of natural materials, earth tone colors and tall volume spaces. The attached, two car covered parking is finished nicely and also doubles as a covered patio. On the late fall and early spring nights, one can find themselves around the camp fire enjoying its warmth and gazing up at the clearly visible stars. Whether you’re planning a get-away, having a wedding or just want to relax in the Texas Hill Country, the bunkhouse on this ranch is the secluded destination you would be looking for!
