The home was designed by a nationally recognized architect out of Houston who specialized in creating large homes with tons of character! When the floor plans were complete, a structural engineer designed the structure and stamped the drawings. Sonny Whittle, local artist, designed many of the architectural details such as, trim, railings, and stairways. Sonny was a prominent architect that was more famous for his Derby posters. The structural engineer put a lot of facets into the house that you typically don't see in a normal house such as, steel shear walls, 6" exterior walls, and expanded footings.
