Transcript 2907 FERNDALE, HOUSTON, TEXAS This house was built in the mid-30Ts and purchased by me ten years ago for the purpose of a tear-down. Due to a sewer moratorium in the late 70fs, it became impossible to get a building permit for new structures. At that time, I punched some holes in the existing walls and replaced them with glass sliding doors and added some exterior lumps which housed washer/dryer/closets/storage. Then I covered the existing frame with rough cedar shiplape. As you can see from the terrible exterior photos (which are being reshot) that the cedar now has ten years of weather on it and looks very dark and rough. This area of Houston began to grow and in-fill very rapidly during the early 80Ts. As my salt box became threatened by the pseudo-Georgian giants springing all around me, I made a decision to go to the rear of the house and built a 32 foot high steel and stucco wall for my architectural and visual privacy. Since I am a Professor of Architecture at the College of Architecture at the University of Houston, I needed a screening room for approximately 30,000 slides. A portion of the third story attic was captured as a studio and on top of that at the fourth level, an upper sun deck was created. Outside the studio, I have a small porch with planter boxes for wildflowers and grapes. As you can see in the photographs, it is two years later and the grapevines are enjoying the Texas sun. Below this area a new bathroom was added at the second level. The steel stair was made of open mesh to create many patterns as the sun moves through the patio. At the ground level is a very large sculpted steel column to hold up said bathroom. Wood decks surround a hot tub with bougainvillae espalieted against the tall stucco wall. Inside there was a fire room added at the end of the dinning room. A fireplace was designed same as a makeup mirror with folding mirrored panels on either side so that one can see three fires at once (see photograph). The rest of the structure was basically left the same as the original fifty year old house. Burdette Keeland & Associates/Jon L. Jenkins: Project Architects Luis Lemus: Structural Engineer B. W.
