Florida Island HouseRustic Exterior, Tampa
Island house in southern Florida, custom-designed and pre-cut by Habitat Post & Beam, Inc. This house was ferried to the job site where it was assembled by a local builder. Photos by Michael Penney, architectural photographer IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not involved in the finish or decoration of these homes, so it is unlikely that we can answer any questions about elements that were not part of our kit package, i.e., specific elements of the spaces such as appliances, colors, lighting, furniture, landscaping, etc. ADDITIONAL NOTE: This photo was used in a nice Houzz article about vacation house swapping options. The use of the photo in that article was not preapproved by Habitat, and we want to clarify that this house is not available for vacation home swapping.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Modern application: Hurricane-ridden coastal areas of the United States are starting to turn to stilt (or pile) houses as a way to deal with the growing frequency of storm surges. The height of the structure allows for cross-ventilation techniques to access higher airflow speeds.
