Fort Worth is as diverse as it is western. With older homes built in the 1930’s and new mega-mansions around the corner, we are called to assist our clients create a custom and unique look for their home. Whether we are remodeling a small home and keeping its historic look with a modern approach or working in a gated community, we love working with our clients to help them transition their new rooms with the rest of their home.
Fort Worth was established in 1849 as an army outpost overlooking the Trinity River. Historically, the city has been a center of the longhorn trade and still embraces its Western heritage. Fort Worth became the westernmost railhead and a transit point for cattle shipment. During boom times, Cowboys took advantage of their last brush with civilization before the long drive on the Chisholm Trail from Fort Worth to Kansas. They stocked up on provisions, visited saloons and then galloped north with their cattle with plans to gamble and carouse when they returned from their trip. Fort Worth became known as “Hell’s Half Acre” with the largest collection of saloons, dance halls and bawdy houses and the nickname of “The Paris of the Plains”.
Today, Fort Worth maintains its heritage and celebrates cattle runs down Main Street. As you visit the city, you’ll likely see businessmen in western suits, cowboy boots and hats. Billy Bob’s, known as the world’s largest honky-tonk includes bull-riding and western dancing. It’s a fun and culturally diverse city.
In addition, the City is home to the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and several world-class museums, such as the Kimball Art Museum and the Amon Carter Museum of Modern Art. It houses major universities, such as Texas Christian University and locals enjoy cheering the Frogs during football season. Furthermore, Fort Worth was the fastest-growing large city in the United States from 2000 to 2006 and was voted one of “America’s Most Livable Communities.”
To review some of our varied clients’ projects, let’s start with a renovation near TCU campus:
The first picture features a gorgeous transitional kitchen in historic Ft. Worth. New oak hardwood was laced into the original flooring and stained to match the flooring in the rest of the home. Classic white painted cabinets and subway tile backsplash update the space while connecting to the decade in which the house was built.

In this next image, we show another Ft. Worth remodel with rustic, farmhouse charm. Multiple walls were removed to open up the space and allow for a large oversized island. Light tumbled travertine and quartzite countertops contrast with stained knotty alder cabinets and hickory engineered hardwood flooring.

“LoneStar Design Build are the best contractors I have ever worked with and I highly recommend them. I bought a house behind my house so that my daughter and grandchildren could live in it and we share a back yard. It was in total disrepair, but I still wanted it. My broker recommended LoneStar and I met Kathi. We saw the house together and it was unbearable. It had to be completely gutted and everything in it is new except one bathtub. The electrical had to be redone, the ducting in the attic, the insulation had to be removed and replaced, and I could go on and on. The floors had to be stripped and acid washed. Kathi designed a brand-new kitchen and we put in all new appliances. It is now a beautiful big kitchen when before it was a tiny galley kitchen. My daughter moved into a beautiful new little home and they are very happy there. A year later my husband and I decided to have our master bath remodeled. Again, we took out everything and they created a beautiful room that I love so much. I would highly recommend Kathi, Don and their staff. Very professional and extremely helpful. They exceeded my expectations. I look forward to remodeling our other two bathrooms in the future.”

“We are so pleased with the remodel of our kitchen/dining/living areas. Kathi and Megan guided us through the initial design process and Don, Thomas and Tom followed up with the build. The design was very thorough, and the actual construction turned out awesome!! We were especially thankful when Kathi recognized an urgent need for a grab bar in our elderly parents’ bathroom and made it happen that day!!! The result of the remodel left us with an amazing open concept area to enjoy with our family and friends.”
