A "Glamper" -- Check it OUT

Yes, we know... we are laughing as hard as you are...

It's a "glamorous camper"

Come on guys, I only camp if i can camp in style, and when we ran across this new term and these images, we couldn't help but to share after a long Memorial Day weekend of many campers out there!

Check out what camping could really be like! -- I had no idea this was even possible. Now the opportunities are endless!

Little spaces = more bang for your buck


We love the pop of pattern throughout to bring life into a small space.

I mean ... this is just FUN!

For a classier approach, we are loving this glamper. (ha, I know, i just can't help but to use that word)

And our favorite, ... grays and yellows and white. Ah. I could "glamp" in this!

So whether you camped, or "glamped" this Memorial day, we hope it was wonderful!

TCI's One of a Kind Entrances: Part 2: The Stairway

Continuing with our series on ENTRANCES and ensuring they make just the right impact to set the stage for a house ... we bring you STAIRCASES.

Did you know so much can change within a stairway to really set a whole 
new look?

Take this recent completed project by TCI for example, this clean and simple staircase is made up of many parts:

- simplistic balusters
- wood treads and painted white risers to set each step apart
- unique assembly of the baluster adhering to the staircase. Instead of just coming straight down into the tread of the stair, it wraps around the stair itself and is joined in beneath

Take a look below for several of our IN CONSTRUCTION staircases that are currently being built, and some tips to creating the perfect stairway.

1. Ease of turns and directions in a staircase - a quick and simple landing can provide just the needed break of the eye visually, and physically as you continue up the stairway

2. Geometric Balusters: We love getting creative with the baluster designs .. 
as long as it stays clean and simple. Nothing too ornate.

3. Mix of Materials: Mixing an iron baluster and rail with a wood step gives the 
staircase something to boast about.

(Two views of an in-progress TCI build)

4. Lastly, add something unique! This may have nothing to do with the staircase itself. Like this completed TCI project below: We are loving this modern wood floral that just transforms this wall and brings all the attention to this entrance!

Thanks for staying tuned for our series on Entrances!

One of a Kind Entrance: Part 1 :Custom Front Doors

One part of a custom home build is designing custom doors and staircases 
down to the "T"!

Here at TCI, we like to design CUSTOM doors because they are just THAT much more special and unique. 

We can draft out the design by drawing exactly what we want the door to look like ...

Take a look at this line drawing in comparison with the IN-PROGRESS construction shot
of our builds in Newman Village in Frisco.

Three TIPS to custom door design:
1. Repetitive Designs - This helps to give the door some "rhythm"
2. Geometric Shapes - Doors with geometric patterns become less busy
3. Effective Light Passage - Leave enough glass through the iron design for an ample amount of light to pass through.

For a more intricate design, check out this custom door below
in a new build in Starwood!

Stay tuned for custom STAIR RAIL designs next!
