    The CMU piers are finished with a limewash; it takes several coats to achieve the look above.

    The color of the siding is Ben Moore's Super White. The color of the shutters is Sherwin William's Sea Salt - SW 6204. Please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help!

    Raised above rising water. In low-lying coastal areas, elevating a house — along with its porch — on stilts or piers is another way to protect it from water and allow cooling breezes to circulate all around it. The International Residential Code, a model for local jurisdictions, stipulates that porches more than 30 inches above grade must have a railing.Exterior paint: Super White, Benjamin Moore; shutter paint: Sea Salt, Sherwin-Williams

A Stylish Response to Extreme WeatherThe destruction caused by the major weather events over the past decade is making an impact on home design. Housing in many areas needs to be more resilient in the face of fire, earthquakes, hurricanes or flooding. In some flood-prone areas, it can be hard to insure livable spaces at the ground level.This South Carolina house design handled this potentially awkward requirement with such aplomb it made the top 20 most popular photos of the year, likely based on looks alone. The front porch, dormer windows, cedar shingles, double-sided staircase and railings are a recipe for inviting Southern charm.See more of this house

    Raised right. Many of the homes located near the beach in Charleston, South Carolina, are raised on stilts to protect them from floods and storm surges. This classic cottage designed by Sea Island Builders is also raised, but the home’s architecture, double-sided staircase and some well-placed trees make the lower level feel more substantial than a typical home on stilts.Exterior paint: Super White, Benjamin MooreTell us: Have you enhanced the exterior of your home recently?
