The original house was built by local builder, Nick Dawson, known for many of the Queen Anne-style limestone cottages in the Castle Hill Historic district. Therefore, the renovation project was an exploration of preserving and celebrating the historic character of the original house. At the time it was developed, W. 10th Street was considered a middle-class suburb of Austin conveniently located along the newly constructed West Line streetcar route. Numerous changes were made to look as though the updates were always there, while other changes are purposefully modern in their aesthetic. The living room appears original when, in fact, it is the combination of two smaller rooms. A steel catwalk on the upper level, and the new sun room with large pivoting custom steel windows, offer a dramatic counterpoint.
