"A Southern home should be a haven. It can be graceful and sophisticated, but more than anything it should be comfortable."
If peace and quiet are what you want, it doesn't get any better than this.
On a heavily wooded 5 acre oasis, on the waterfront of Lake Travis, Gloria Frame created a cozy rustic, yet romantic retreat, that looks as if it had been there forever. Located on a cove just off the main lake, you get to enjoy the lake but not the noise and traffic that comes with lake front property.
After purchasing 3 historic log cabins, reclaimed floor boards, rafters and beams, Frame had them shipped to Texas, where she planned to combine three of them into one unified main structure and the leftover material into constructing a carriage house.
A reverence for antiques and old wood was the inspiration for this unconventional lake house using all salvaged materials. (Read about the history of it's construction.)
"A good house stands on its own. You shouldn't need a lot of frills."
