Trending Architectural Elements You Need to Know About! 


In the heart of the Lone Star State, where the spirit of independence and innovation thrives, the world of custom home building has never been more exciting!

Texas, known for its diverse landscapes and rich cultural heritage, offers a unique canvas for builders and architects to create high-end custom homes that are a perfect blend of style, sophistication and, of course, functionality.

As we step into the realm of luxury living in Texas, it’s important to us that we are always up-to-date with the latest architectural styles and elements. Whether you’re planning to build your dream home or simply intrigued by the world of cutting-edge architecture, let us direct you to the future of Texas custom homes.

Here’s what our customers are considering:

Open Concept Layouts: Open floor plans that create a seamless flow between living spaces remain highly popular. This design encourages interaction, maximizes natural light, and gives homes a spacious feel. Perfect for families that love to entertain!

Large Windows and Glass Walls: Expansive windows, sliding glass doors, and glass walls continue to be sought after. These features bring the outdoors in, provide excellent views, and flood interiors with natural light. Since the pandemic, we’ve seen more and more home owners interested in this idea.

Minimalist Design: Clean lines, simple forms, and a minimalist aesthetic are favored by many homeowners. This approach focuses on functionality and uncluttered spaces.

Energy Efficiency: Sustainable and energy-efficient elements are an ever-growing trend. This includes solar panels, energy-efficient appliances, well-insulated walls and roofs, and high-efficiency HVAC systems to reduce environmental impact and lower utility bills.

Indoor-Outdoor Living: Outdoor living spaces are becoming more elaborate, featuring outdoor kitchens, fire pits, covered patios, and even outdoor rooms with heating and cooling options. We love nothing more than building our customers a luxurious outdoor space!

Smart Home Integration: Homes equipped with smart technology for lighting, security, climate control, and entertainment are increasingly popular. Voice-activated controls and automation systems are becoming standard.

Natural Materials: The use of natural materials like wood, stone, and metal in interior and exterior design elements adds warmth and character to custom homes.

Multi-Generational Living: Designs that accommodate multi-generational living are on the rise. This includes features like separate living spaces or additional suites for extended family members.

Custom Built-Ins: Custom shelving, storage solutions, and built-in furniture are gaining popularity, as they add functionality and uniqueness to your beloved spaces.

Floating Staircases: Contemporary, minimalist floating staircases add a sense of elegance and modernity to homes.

Green Roofs and Living Walls: Incorporating green roofs and gorgeous living walls not only enhances aesthetics but also contributes to energy efficiency and sustainability.

Unique Roof Designs: Architects are experimenting with creative roof designs, such as flat roofs with rooftop gardens or pitched roofs with interesting angles.

Dedicated Home Offices: The need for dedicated home office spaces has grown significantly, with many homes now featuring stylish and functional workspaces. Here, you can go wild or conservative with the interior design to make work life as interesting as home life.

The world of high-end Texas custom home building is an ever-evolving landscape of innovation and creativity. The architectural styles and elements mentioned above represent just a glimpse of the exciting possibilities available to you through us at Stone Creek Custom Homes.

How to Turn Your Backyard Into an Oasis During the Sizzling S. Texas Summer!


As we all know, the summer heat in South Texas can be brutal, but it doesn’t mean you have to give up on your backyard just because you don’t have a covered porch like this one (above) that we built for our client.

With a few simple adjustments, you can turn your backyard into an oasis that you’ll enjoy spending time in all season long.

Minimize Direct Sun on Your Back Patio

One of the best ways to stay cool in the summer is to minimize direct sun on your back patio. There are a few different ways to do this. One option is to install a shade sail or canopy. There are a million options out there, so just search to see all the various designs and find one that suits your style, but the idea is this will provide a shady spot where you can relax and enjoy the outdoors. Alternatively, you can plant trees or shrubs around your patio to create a natural barrier from the sun. Although this might not solve the problem this summer, unless you purchase mature plants.

Add Some Water Features

Adding some water features to your backyard is a great way to cool things down. A fountain, pond, or even a simple water table can help create a more relaxing atmosphere. The water will also evaporate, which will help to cool the air around you.

Install Some Fans

Installing some fans around your backyard can aid in keeping the air circulating and help you stay cool. You can also use misting fans to create a cool mist that will evaporate sweat and keep you feeling refreshed.

Take Breaks in the Shade

If you’re spending time outdoors, it’s important to take breaks in the shade. This will help to keep you from overheating and getting sunstroke. You should also drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated. We all know this, but it’s easy to forget to drink enough water in this heat! Along those lines, it’s also important to wear sunscreen when you’re outdoors, even if it’s cloudy. The sun’s rays can still damage your skin, particularly when you can’t feel the heat.

By following these tips, we hope you can transform what might be a dreaded backyard at the moment into an oasis where you can relax and enjoy spending time all summer long. If you need help building a new backyard (along with your brand new custom home), you know where to find us!
