The new 1,800 SF Fort Boggy Ranger Residence for the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department is located in Fort Boggy State Park near Centerville, Texas. The house, designed to replace a decaying trailer home, makes very efficient use of interior space to accommodate three bedrooms. The living and sleeping areas open to a terrace that takes full advantage of the Park’s scenic views.
The house is placed on the site in response to its orientation and site constraints. The exterior is finished with fiber cement siding, western cedar, and Galvalume metal to minimize maintenance while adhering to the prescribed budget. The house later became a prototype that has been replicated at least four times at different State Parks.
