Cottage Industry in Garden Oaks

Taken down to its studs: This home’s renovation project is in the works on a quarter-acre corner lot backing up to the feeder road of the North Loop at Yale St. That’s in Garden Oaks, or so says the neighborhood signage on the property’s easement.

Listed last week at $350,000, the future version of this 1950-built cottage will have new siding, windows, plumbing, hardwood and stone floors, custom cabinetry, and granite counter tops. The kitchen is already displaying the bones of its new, barrel-vaulted ceiling:


As a starting point, the 1,514-sq.-ft house has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a detached garage. It’s ending point, meanwhile, is shooting for late June.
