New Heights Homes with Distinctive Kitchens

Filed in Houston Heights Homes for Sale by on February 1, 2017

Two Similar Homes-Two Different Kitchens

Builders have a choice when building more than one home: Make them identical (Cheaper; fewer plans to pay for, easier to build duplicates, fewer decisions to make; buy fixtures in bulk, etc.) or make each one distinctive. Distinctive is the route HDT Builders chooses. They don’t build a lot of homes, so each one is a different, distinctive and masterfully constructed. It is Dee Todd Simmons’ nature to make each house unique because she is not only a builder the construction supervisor, she is also an artist. The other partner, Dave Hatcher is the behind the scenes engineer.

Here is an example of their work on two similar homes at 216 & 220 W 24th St. in Houston Heights: Both homes are about 2440 SF 3/2.5/2 + 1BR/1Ba quarters. Both have the same footprint but have an entirely different feel and interior layout. Click on the links above for more details, videos, etc. The kitchens on both homes are located toward the back and both open to the family room. The look, feel and layout of each kitchen is entirely different.
