LAKE HOUSES & MOUNTAIN HOMES
Second homes, whether they be located on a nearby Texas Lake, in the mountains, or nestled into a canyon outside of Napa Valley, have become an increasing growing part of our practice.
Nearly 3 decades ago, Cliff had the opportunity of working on a family retreat on a private lake in East Texas for Henry C. Beck, Jr, while working as an Architect with the late Bud Ogelsby. After starting Welch Architecture in 2000, we have had several opportunities to continue work on weekend and vacation homes, as well as some primary residences in beautiful locations, such as overlooking Tiburan Bay just outside of San Francisco, to overlooking the Tetons in Wyoming.
EAST TEXAS LAKE HOUSE
An East Texas weekend get away designed for the late Henry C. Beck, Jr. in 1991. The residence was broken down into 4 separate structures, the main living and gathering space, a master suite, and two guest cabins, all connected by exterior decks and wallkways, tucked under a canopy of East Texas Pines. Exterior materials include locally harvested pine columns, bleached redwood siding, local stone, and paint grip metal roofing.
