Part of the appeal of living in Austin, Texas is the beautiful weather. Even in the coldest months of the year – December, January and February – we rarely see temperatures below freezing. On average, the temperature hardly drops below 50 degrees. Now, I know you are thinking that since we have such mild winters, aren’t our summers unbearably hot? And, truthfully, yes, there have been times in which we have seen triple digit summers, but generally speaking the temperature of our summer months stays around the high eighties, which is still hot. However, no matter the season – whether we are loving the cool breezes of the Spring and Fall, seeing temperatures a little too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer – Sterling Custom Homes designs outdoor living areas for you to take advantage of the beautiful natural views surrounding your custom home in Austin.
Since most anyone can create a comfortable living area for the beautiful weather of the spring and fall seasons, we are going to focus on how Sterling Custom Homes goes above and beyond the ordinary to make sure you can enjoy the outdoors in both cold and hot weather as well as perfect weather.

Sterling Custom Homes started off 2009 with a bang. Five employees of the Austin custom home builder traveled to Las Vegas in January for the International Builders Show to learn the latest trends and products in the home building industry. Between the five employees at IBS 2009, Sterling Custom Homes attended over 75 seminars on a myriad of topics from green building to social media marketing. As a Certified Green Builder, Sterling was especially interested in the latest green building products and technology. Luckily, green building was a hot topic at this year’s show and Sterling was able to learn a lot about incorporating green features into every project. And you as a consumer will greatly benefit from Sterling’s visit to Las Vegas since they can take this knowledge and apply it to every new home in Austin that they build. By participating in the largest home building trade show in the nation, Sterling Custom Homes is proving their commitment to being on the cutting-edge of home building technology.
The kitchen can make or break the appeal of a home. Generally speaking, it is the first room you go to after waking up in the morning (other than the bathroom and your bedroom). Doing more than constantly providing you with nutrients, it is the room in the house that brings everyone together, whether for a nightly dinner or during the holidays or a party. All of this being said, it seems pretty obvious that having a kitchen custom built to your needs is a must. If you are one that frequently hosts dinner parties, your kitchen will have drastically different features than someone who typically orders take-out. Austin custom homebuilder Sterling Custom Homes has been building custom kitchens in Austin for over 20 years, and their experience has made them an expert in designing dream kitchens tailored to each individual.
