Vernacular Traditions

This house is based on the vernacular Beaufort T House. The floor plan is shaped like a T with a wrap around porch, this allows the rooms to have great cross ventilation.

Designed for Resiliency

The first floor is raised out of the flood plain  and is finished with materials that can get wet. The large overhangs protect the walls from the rain. The impact glass in the windows and doors protect them in high winds. The house is design to be net zero, meaning that the energy produced on-site from photovoltaic panels is equal to or greater than the energy required to run the highly efficient house.

 

Designed for Outdoor Living

The large screened porches overlook a lagoon. One of the screened porches is dedicated to cooking and dining while the other is for relaxing.

Close to Custom

This house will be included in our C2C Collection and is available for purchase. Our Close to Custom plans are based on vernacular forms,  and the T-house plan builds on the theme of providing plans that inherently preform well in our hot, humid climate. See the other plans here.
