Dispatches from a South Texas Ranch Project

Deep in the oasis of Texas hill country, a new ranch project is underway. At Sebastian, we relish building these retreats, set amidst stunning vistas that exude a sense of calm and tranquility.

Working remotely can be a challenge, but it gives us a chance to offer economic opportunity to people who are local to the project: the skilled tradesmen whose work helps bring plans to life.

South Texas is where the buffalo (and deer and other wildlife) roam. Literally.

“The construction of the ranch residence is of solid masonry in keeping with the owners’ desire for a structure built to last generations. Exterior walls are of white plaster and traditional lime wash over stone and roofed with a soft colored flat terracotta tile, wood shingles and traditional thatching.”
