Property that fronts Lake Hamilton and features a dilapidated 1920s home that is brought back to life with bungalow-inspired architecture, prairie-style windows, and lush outdoor landscaping.

Landscaping Around Corner

For the landscaping, "we used a lot of native plants," says Chris Lambton. From blanket flowers to fire bushes, drought-tolerant plants were handpicked to add curb appeal.

To accommodate the lakes views, Blog Cabin 2014 was rotated 90 degrees, transforming the sides into its new front exterior. The street side of the bungalow retains the flavor of the original house, with its asymmetrical design, exposed brick chimney, and quirky rooflines.

Aluminum gutters clad in a copper are among the traditional bungalow design features utilized in this renovation.

Palm Trees in Yard

The sabal palmetto is Florida's official state tree and can be found growing in natural areas. It was only fitting that this native tree is growing among the lush landscape at Blog Cabin 2014.

Garden Fountain

An old furnace is reclaimed as a bird bath perched on top of a cypress tree stump.

During the Blog Cabin's People's Choice voting period, online voters selected soft green siding with sail cloth trim.

"I wanted an overhang to make the entrance feel cozy," says project manager Dylan Eastman. Lanterns flank the door and lend an inviting ambiance.

Front Door with Leaded Glass

The classic-craft American style front door complements the bungalow architecture, and is one of the many ways the Blog Cabin team has saved a piece of the past.

Deep overhangs and wooden corbels add charm to the overall bungalow aesthetic.

Found on property, magnolia trees feature glossy leaves and provide an abundance of shade.

Spanish Moss in Trees

Spanish moss offers a touch of whimsy and finds a home amongst the towering trees surrounding the driveway.

Front Porch with Open Door

Two Japanese Sago Palms dot the front entrance and welcome a majestic motif.

Young Tree next to House

Dark green leaves and pale gray bark are crowning features for this pride of Houston yaupon.

Front Entrance in Evening

Thoughtful design and charming details find a place at Blog Cabin 2014. "It feels more like a home, than a lake house," explains Dylan.
