Welcome to Shade House Development!

At Shade House we work with families to design and build architectural grade homes built around their needs and desires. Family owned, we have been building homes in the Houston area for 20 years. We have simplified the process so that you don’t have to work with an architect, builder, and landscape designer. By folding all of these disciplines into one service – not only do you benefit from greater efficiency saving you time and money but this multidisciplinary approach allows for the design intent to be expressed throughout every detail of your home and property. Because we are designers and builders, your budget is never left out of the process. Thus insuring that your time and money is not wasted on developing plans never to be built. We have a very straightforward, transparent yet casual approach that allows our clients to feel at ease getting their arms around what could otherwise be a very stressful process. Meet us for a cup of coffee and let your dream begin.

Below is some general information about Rice Village:

Rice Village is a shopping district in Houston, Texas, United States. Rice Village is a collection of shops, restaurants and pubs, situated about a half-mile west of the center of Rice University’s 300-acre campus. The core “Rice Village” extends over ten city blocks, defined by University Boulevard, Kirby Drive, Rice Boulevard, and Morningside Drive, though spillover has expanded the retail area to a total of sixteen blocks, including northward extensions along Kirby and into the present mixed-use blocks between Morningside and Greenbriar. Rice Village has been one of Houston’s oldest shopping destinations since the 1930s. It is an unplanned, high density hodge-podge of old and new retail store. The first minutes of the 1994 film The Chase were filmed in the Rice Village.

From its origins in the 1930s an ad hoc cluster of retail stores, the Rice Village has grown to become one of Houston’s more interesting and variable shopping destinations. Host to over 300 shops in a 16-block area, Rice Village is known for its many small and eclectic shops and boutiques. Recent expansion in the area has also brought in high-end clothing stores and the nation-wide retail venues. As Village retail became denser in the 1990s, limited parking finally led to the closure of Rice Food Market, the last surviving Rice Village grocery store. Residential real estate has recently re-entered the area with the opening of the Hanover Rice Village Luxury Apartments.

The Village is host to dozens of restaurants. Along with traditional eateries there are restaurants specializing in food from all over the world. Rice Village has three French, two Japanese, two Chinese, two Italian, two Turkish, one Mexican, two Spanish, one Mediterranean, one Vietnamese, two Indian, and three Thai restaurants as well as sandwich shops, delicatessens, and speciality food and beverage stores. It also used to contain Houston’s only beer brewpub.

Rice Village is a part of the University Place Super Neighborhood Council. Rice Village is in Texas’ 7th congressional district. The neighborhood is within the Houston Police Department’s South Central Patrol Division.

The complex is zoned to the following Houston ISD schools: Poe Elementary School, Lanier Middle School, and Lamar High School.
