This 544 sq. ft. house was placed at the back of a large lot to allow for future development if desired while also sized to allow for house to be moved if the property was sold for land value only. The house sits next to a large carport/porch and looks out to a wood deck and the lawn beyond. The house is efficiently designed for a couple who required a place in Houston to be near work and family. The house is wrapped in low maintenance metal siding on the exterior and simple materials are used inside. The bathroom and closet are clad in white oak siding that matches the kitchen cabinetry and refers to the cabin like quality of this very modest home.
