2021 Best Architecture or Design Firm – Newell’s Designs -Winner by Katy Times
January 2018 Summary
The Texas housing market started the year with inventory obstacles but shows signs of improvement. The shortage of homes priced under $300,000 restrained sales to only 1 percent growth and heightened affordability challenges. Demand showed little signs of abating as the state and national economies strengthened. However, rising residential loan values, building permits, and housing starts indicate a positive supply-side response. The challenge remains not only for developers to expand the housing stock but to do so at the lower end of the market.
Newell’s Designs/Newell Cheatheam has been retained to design a 300 s.f. remodeling addition to a custom home at 311 Helberg Rd, Houston, Tx. by Gulfstream Remodelings, LLC of Katy,Tx.

How to Prep for Hurricane Damage Repair
No one knows exactly when, where, or how intensely a hurricane will hit. Weather stations now have astounding technology to make their predictions more accurate, but they are always still predictions. Nature can change so quickly and dramatically in a short period of time that it is best to always be prepared for the event of a hurricane. Preparation should include emergency kits, food and water storage, an evacuation plan, a return plan, and a plan for hurricane damage repair.
Although the wind from hurricanes can cause a lot of damage, the greater issue is generally the huge amount of water that a hurricane brings with it. Because of rain and flooding, areas that are hit by a hurricane generally require a great deal of hurricane damage repair. Here is a list of just a few ways you can prep for these types of repairs.
Take pictures for proof of damage to send to your insurance company.
Send in claims to your insurance.
Do basic cleanup, including throwing away debris in and around your house and disposing of furniture or household items that are damaged beyond repair.
Determine what will need to be fixed or replaced in your home.
Recognize that you need professional help and don’t try to fix electrical issues, roofing or ceiling damage, or gas leaks.
Even if an area isn’t hit by the actual hurricane, it can still experience a lot of damage from the excessive rain and flooding of a nearby hurricane. With this in mind, it’s important to be prepared and have a plan of action for hurricane damage repair in place.
Some Hurricane property owners decide to do remodeling additions to their homes or commercial buildings since there are doing restoration any way. If so, call Newell Cheatheam of Newell’s Designs and get a complimentary design quote for the design. 281.392.3034. www.newellsdesigns.com
