Render ATX

"Healthy, High-Performance Design+Build" Our work is extremely artistic and custom, with a level of quality that speaks for itself.

Health conscious residential design/build firm, also specializing in commercial tenant finish out and small scale development. Our goal is to provide the most sustainable non-toxic options available while retaining the look and feel of traditional high end construction. Though we do offer in-house design, we always welcome the opportunity to work with other skilled architects and designers, of whi


Some client love from our past …

“In a word…. FANTASTIC!!!! (not something you’d hear everyday about dealing with a contractor) I have dealt with many that were not “fantastic” Working with Render ATX was effortless. They work very hard to build a relationship with their client. I didn’t wait days to hear back…. or even hours. If I had a question and texted, I’d hear back 90% of the time almost immediately. NEVER in my years (in the design business) have I seen such craftsmanship. You don’t know a bad paint job until you see a FANTASTIC paint job. The same goes for my tile and hardwoods. Render ATX made my ideas come to life. It actually turned out better than I could have imagined. I am so grateful for their hard work. I walk into my newly designed area and it brings a smile to my face. Thank you Render ATX.”

Lillie had the recent opportunity to hear what our Mayor thinks about the current state and growth of Austin.

There was a through theme around having a bias for action for Austin. He spoke on the concept of being comfortable to fail, but failing fast. The message of trying something and figuring out quickly what works and what doesn’t work is synonymous with how we work here at Render. It was a great opportunity to here first hand from one of our city leaders!

“Don’t be paralyzed by fear of failure!”

Fifteen years ago (wow!) this was our very first custom home project under our own company, the was more than just a home – it was a sustainable masterpiece. Our clients didn’t pay an electric bill their first entire year in the home! After that, they averaged an electric bill of only $25 per month for an all electrical home with a family of four.

This 5-Star Green Rated Custom Home was a groundbreaking example of nearly NET-Zero living, proudly rated by the City of Austin Green Building Program. 🌱 We were ahead of the curve on the green building wave that hit Austin in the years following!

Pushing boundaries, we integrated an array of innovative non-toxic products, some introduced for the very first time in the Austin area. It was a milestone project that not only showcased our craftsmanship but also served as a valuable case study for sustainable building practices.

The Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church (originally built by freed slaves) has been sacred a pillar to the community of Clarksville in Austin, TX for over 140 years.

For over 40 years, the church had been held up by telephone poles wedged into the earth behind the church at a 45 degree angle, a project spearheaded by the University of Texas Architecture & Engineering program.

In 2012, the incredible honor of restoring this significant piece of history was bestowed upon our small company by the church’s congregation. Steve Sadowsky, the City Historic Preservation Officer (RIP) recommended us. Dilapidated old churches were often pet projects of his. We were competing for the job against the likes of established builders like Joe Pinnelli, among others. After a couple of initial meetings, the church goers, including local legend Don Baylor (RIP), said, “We like Doug. We want to work with him.”

Every step of the way, we worked hand in hand with the dedicated church leaders to ensure our renovation honored their vision and the rich history of this beloved Austin landmark.

When we started work, the city inspectors words were,
“This place is held up by hope and prayer.”

When were finished, the churches new baptismal which now doubled as a structural buttress (designed by Jerry Garcia of Structures) supported the church & the old telephone poles were forever removed. That was a a wonderful day! 🥲

We will always feel honored to have had the opportunity to revitalize this cherished space, preserving its legacy for generations to come. Most memorable will be the people & relationships that were made as a result.

Architect: Tom Hatch
Engineer: Structures

Looking back at our past . This beauty merges artfully aged original elements with modern design, filled with natural light and bold colors. Swipe to see the full transformation! ⬅️

Architectural design by Arthur & Gary Furman of Furman + Keil Architects (Arthur is now with Side Angle Side). Side note, Gary used to be Doug’s little league baseball coach & Arthur was one of Doug’s best friends growing up! This project was for Arthur’s sister & Gary’s daughter, so it was definitely a nostalgic family affair, & we are so grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of it. Project was featured online by Dwell.

Continuing our celebration of Women in Construction week, we couldn’t be more excited to introduce the newest member of the Render ATX team, Laura! She joins us as our full time Assistant Superintendent.👷‍♀️🚧

Laura brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table from a wide variety of experiences. After retiring from federal law enforcement after 21 years, Laura found her way into the world of construction and had the opportunity to work for single family home builder. Growing a love of the building process and experiencing a tremendous learning curve, she knew this was where she was meant to be.

Some fun facts about Laura… in her spare time she loves training and running canine cross country with her Belgian Malinois and her German Shepherd sister. A mom of two amazing grown kiddos, she also spends time exploring back country camping, competing in fi****ms competitions, teaches gun safety and criminal justice, and is a trained trauma medic. 🏃🏽‍♀️🦮🔫 In other words, she’s basically a total bad-ass.

We are proud to have her on board and look forward to all the amazing things she will accomplish with us.
Please join us in welcoming Laura to the Render ATX family! 🎊👏


Happy Women in Construction Week! At Render ATX, a female owned company, we're proud to recognize and celebrate the amazing women who are breaking barriers and making their mark in the construction industry. From architects to engineers, project managers to skilled tradespeople, women are making valuable contributions to the field of construction every day. 👷‍♀️🚧

We know that historically, construction has been a male-dominated industry, but we firmly believe that a diverse workforce is a stronger and smarter workforce. That's why we're committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion across our teams, and creating a welcoming and supportive environment for women in our company and beyond.

So to all the hardworking women in construction out there, we want you to know that your skills, talent, and dedication are deeply valued and appreciated. Thank you for all that you do, and keep on building! 🏗️🦺
