Portfolio

As a consultant and advisor my objective is to assist you in analyzing and determining what your property can become within your vision and budget.  This can range from a few upfront meetings to complete involvement throughout the process.  Representative properties have been large and small, and both residential and commercial.

Swan's Nest, Breckenridge, Colorado

Built in 1898 as the home of a gold baron, the house had been used over the years as a hunting lodge and boy’s camp, with periods of abandonment.  The property has been restored to its glory, including the addition of a new kitchen wing.  Randy and Christy both provided the vision and Randy was the general contractor.  The restoration has been featured on “A Home for Christy Rost – Thanksgiving”, airing nationwide on PBS.

The Interurban Building, Dallas, Texas

This 1916 building was originally built as a railroad depot for the Dallas Interurban Railway with an adjoining office building.  The property was restored and converted to 138  loft apartments and retail space, including Dallas’ only downtown full service grocery store.

400 S. Akard, Dallas, Texas

This was the original Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, constructed in 1921 and expanded in 1936 and 1958.  The vacated building was purchased from the Federal Reserve in 1995 for possible conversion into office, hotel and residential uses.  Although subsequently sold before redevelopment, the conversion ideas and process proved beneficial in working on other properties.

The Davis Building, Dallas, Texas

Originally completed in 1926 as the headquarters for Republic National Bank, the building was restored and converted to ground level retail with 183 loft apartments above.

1001 Pennsylvania, Avenue, Washington, D.C.

Two historic building facades were incorporated into a new multistory office building.

2910 Plumb Street, Houston, Texas

This was our first house and restoration.  Much was learned about simultaneously living in and restoring a house while undertaking most of the work ourselves.
