Because I am also a contributor at Apartment Therapy, I sometimes get to photograph really, really cool homes in and around Austin. They often have varied styles, with hints of modern and other tastes. Yesterday I published a house tour of a local restauranteur whose home really sent commenters into a tizzy, and I just couldn’t stop myself from asking your opinion. Filled with a bold, dramatic color scheme, it’s the walls made of OSB, or oriented strand board, that have made lovers or enemies out of this house tour. Some love how woodsy, masculine and interesting it is, other hate it and think it looks unfinished. We know what we think about this house and all its OSB, but what do you think? You can see other photos here.
Is this house modern, cool and a good use of recycled materials? Or does it seem unfinished to you?
