Spice Bay (British West Indies) traditional-pool

Spice Bay (British West Indies)

The idea behind this home was to create a true to style british west indies home with a clean contemporary feel on the interior. We worked closely with Cliff Scholz on the design of the home and incorporated details we saw in traditional examples of this architecture. All soffits around the home are western red cedar with western red cedar rafter tails. The floor is walnut. All outlets are placed in baseboards. The Marvin windows and doors have transoms above. The living room features a toungu and groove wood cieling. There is an outdoor living room complete with fireplace and TV. There is a suite that is seperated from the main house by the outdoor living room for guest privacy, or , if used as an office a place to get away from things happening in the main house.

Gutter system and downspouts. - This is a beautiful look, with the dark flat tile roof and light stucco. The gutter and downspout system matches the glazing well. Are they treated/painted at the manufacturer level or custom matched locally? Please share the metal used and the process. Thank you

Thank you, the extra clips are an interesting touch. May I ask about the two chimneys in this image? Seeing some of the interior photos of this great project, they appear to be decorative. Do they house vents or fans of any kind?

Yes the two chimneys are for architectural appeal only, there is a third chimney and fireplace at the outdoor living room which is functional. They do not house anything.
