This 1960's commercial space was full of challenges, but character and location made it the right choice for the newest, hottest wine & tapas bar, The Wine Belly.
Our clients’ vision was to create a space that would maximize seating space, create a fully functioning kitchen all while maintaining the urban/hip feel of Austin. We worked closely with architects and engineers to secure permits which allowed us to use the existing back patio footprint to add 2 handicap accessible bathrooms and a large storage room that flows smoothly with the existing building layout. This addition allowed us to create a spacious inviting back patio for patrons to sit back and unwind.
The custom Bar front was hand built using old and new materials together. A new 7.5 ton 3 phase HVAC system was installed with exposed metal commercial duct that operates off of a rooftop electric turbine converter that allows 2 phase to be converted to 3 phase along with spray foam insulation painted with black fire resistant paint for further energy efficiency.

This 1950’s small single family home had seen some hard times through the years to say the least, but what a great location! First time home buyer Logan, was excited about the prospect of moving into his own place and being so close to where he grew up. So with a remodeling budget of under $90,000 he wanted miracles to happen. He had gotten several bids from different contractors that were all over the board, but when he met with Leo Maya, Senior Estimator & Creative Consultant at Masterpiece Building of Austin, he felt sure that he was going to get the most for his investment.
We’re glad we exceeded not only Logan’s, but also his father’s, (also an architect) expectations!
The project included a new HVAC unit, high energy efficient spray foam attic envelope, a new electrical service entrance and a new 26 gauge metal snaplock roof.
Our clients wanted to update their existing Master Bedroom into a fabulous Master Suite retreat. They chose to incorporate natural wood materials, natural stones and a soft cool palette of colors that would reflect the lush surrounding of the Colorado River.
The focal point in their bedroom is an amazing fireplace wall. It is a multi-faceted feature that is both function and beauty as it allows for storage, decorative lighting, remote fireplace and their media center.
Upon entering the beautiful master bath, it is obvious that time was taken not only in the selection of materials but the function of the space. Whether you require a nice soaking bath or a warm steam shower, there is no doubt you will be pampered and relaxed.
This 1970's diamond in the rough home is tucked away in the hills of Westlake Drive. The owner’s vision was unclear at the begining but they knew it could become a magnificent home. With the help of John Allen of John Allen Designs we worked together along with clients to create the dream living space on paper. Many walls were removed in order to create several bedroom suites to accommodate spacious, relaxing living areas during your stay.
The project broke ground at the beginning of January of 2013 and was completed on time within the projected 5.5 months.

As families grow and change there is sometimes a need for homes to do the same. Client's Andrea and Bryan contacted Masterpiece Building of Austin LLC to help remodel their existing home that would not only fit the needs of the family but also showcase their personal character and style.
Their existing house was gorgeous but didn't have bedrooms for the children. With the help of John Allen, a registered Residential Designer, plans were created to convert the typical garage into a very untypical story book 2 bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 baths, a play/reading loft, a hallway with beautiful bookshelves/storage cabinets, a work desk with an extra window for lighting, and an extension to the kitchen. As challenges presented themselves throughout the project the team pulled together and skillfully made flawless design solutions.

This late 1960’s home located in Barton Hills was already charming. The owner, Chris Daly, was very fond of the cottage feel that is common to the Hamptons on the Northeast Coast and wanted to have it year round in her own home. So with a vision of the perfect sun/sitting room she hired Elizabeth (Ibby) Sowell, a very creative, talented, architect that is part of the Clark Mente architect firm to produce this fabulous room addition that captured all the aspects of a New England sunroom cottage feel.We have built many beautiful screened in porches for our many customers in the past, but we think that you might agree with us that this one is as nice as they get!Notice the attention to detail. Tongue & groove wood vaulted ceiling, custom removable storm glass that can easily be stored in the summer months leaving fixed screens in place, old style tumbled brick with whitewash for an old New England fireplace look, and practical stained concrete for character and ease of maintenance.
This beautifully remodeled Master Bathroom was the clients' vision of her relaxation retreat that she can enjoy for years to come.
When our customers saw this creekbluff project in the Lakewood area, they recognized a diamond in the rough. They were looking for a larger house, including a large lot that their growing family could thoroughly enjoy. The location was perfect, although the outdated presence needed to go. Our customer stated, "Masterpiece Building of Austin was hired to come in and push the 70's out", and bring the new era in!
A large part of our business is base on udating and remodeling various rooms and exteriors of homes throughout central Texas. Here are a few amazing projects that have transformed into beautiful spaces that surpassed our clients dreams.
