J.C. Schmeil Merzbau Design Collective renovation addition Austin Texas family home
Architect J.C. Schmeil renovated and added onto a 1935 Austin bungalow in order to better accommodate his family: wife Ashley McLain, sons Corbin (13) and Beckett (10), and Shiner the rescue dog. They purchased the cottage in 1998, and after a couple of small renovations and considering a move, they realized they needed to add some serious square footage. So in 2012 Schmeil gutted the original cottage, upgraded all systems, and added on to the upstairs, bringing the former 820 square feet up to the current 2,150 with four bedrooms.
