Primitive Modern
Near Austin, Max and Melody Schleder fell in love with a piece of land: 23 acres with a 300-foot cliff overlooking Purgatory Creek. So they decided to build a home that fit in with the natural surroundings. Their home captures the primitive feel of the landscape while providing modern amenities that accommodate two adults, two children and a dog in a very small space.

Echoing their own organizational strategies for the adult items in the house, the Schleders incorporated cubbies, bins and baskets on a shelving unit along one wall in the kids' room. And, if you start them young, they'll grow up to be organized and neat.
