Custom homes and spaces.
Designed and built in Austin, Texas.
We are a design-build firm. Our primary focus is new home design and construction, with a handful of remodels per year. As both the designer and the builder, we deliver an integrated process where design and budget decisions are reconciled with building realities in all parts of planning. We design and construct spaces that feel like home from the day you move in.
Function and Flow of a Home
We want to build a house that reflects how you live. We’ve built houses for cooks, potters, avid readers, birders, and Christmas enthusiasts. These interests influence and inspire the layout of a house. We enjoy getting to know our clients and the things they love (and hate!) to build truly customized spaces that function and enhance the things you do.
We enjoy working on a range of architectural styles, not just one. Victorian, farmhouse, mid- century, spanish- we love them all. We’re inspired to build what you want. We particularly enjoy the challenge of small, efficient houses. Or regular sized houses, or treehouses or Quonset huts. We also love nooks, cubby holes, mud rooms, dumb waiters, rolling ladders, lofts, transom windows, archways, handmade doors, and all the other little details that give a house a personality.
Design- and- build is an integrated workflow, where we are both the designer and the builder. This gives us many efficiencies from budget (making design decisions with an understanding of cost and budget context) to workflow (making design decisions real time on the jobsite). This fluidity ensures the design intentions are carried out to the final stage of your house. We are designers who build. Builders who design.
Integrity of Materials
We build houses to last, and select materials to match. Pier- and- beam foundations, Solid wood doors, airtight foam insulation, select hardwoods, galvalum roofs, the list goes on. In our own house, we experiment with different materials and finishes to understand how they work and endure over time.
Building a house is a full time job, and should not be yours. We manage the weekly expectations, educate you on decision points, and create a range of selections, so that you experience the highlights of building your home. We have a solid understanding of the City building codes and inspection process to ensure a smooth journey from breaking ground to final certificate of occupancy. We aim to make homebuilding an enjoyable journey.
"Working with Hatch Works to design and build our new home was one of the most rewarding things we have ever done! Adam and Ashley did an excellent job of helping us envision and realize our dream home with great attention to detail and care for our individual needs. Adam and Ashley have a wonderful talent for walking their clients through the home building process from inception to birth, all the while providing nurturing guidance to enhance the experience and perfect the end product. Because of this, our home is like our fourth family member that we love, respect and value immensely.
If you are looking for a builder who you can trust and who will deliver a quality, one of a kind product suited to your needs, look no further than Hatch Works. We feel so fortunate to be living in a Hatch Works home and look forward to many years of great memories in it."
