A Handmade South Austin Home — House Tour

Name: Lara and Adam
Location: South Austin, Texas
Size: 930 square feet
Years lived in: 6 months, owned

Not counting the couches and chairs, nearly all the furniture in this home was built by its owners! Pallets, old fences…any reclaimed wood Lara and Adam found around their neighborhood became building material for their home’s contents. And they saved a lot of money by salvaging fencing they took down during the renovation and other wood scraps. From those they made bed frames, headboards, shelving, poster frames, tables, and lighting. “Anytime we realize we need something…a side table, a laundry hamper, a mirror, a ceiling light…I’ll do a quick inventory of what we’ve got laying around and figure out how I can use it to fit the space,” admits Adam. It’s this can-make attitude that inspired Adam’s side hustle: East Austin Sawdust.

Hello I'm Sofey and I absolutely love decorating and design. Many of my friends have been telling me for years to start a blog. So I did :) I love to review products so I started a review blog about sofas and console tables where I review them both. If you get a chance hope on over to my website and take a look. You might just find an awesome piece of furniture for your place.
