This is the direction we are moving with the Grayton Beach house. The clients wanted the guest bedrooms on the second floor. The design is inspired by Florida Cracker vernacular architecture. The concept is to create a dogtrot that is aligned with the natural arch created by the fairy trees that overlooks the lake.
We are designing a new home in Grayton Beach, Florida. The home site is on Western Lake, among small, twisting Fairy Oak trees. The drawing below were an earlier version with the guest bedrooms on the ground floor and a separate small cottage.
