Boring box is turned into a relaxed Caribbean home in the Falls Area of Miami

Both of the owners of this house were from the Caribbean and they wanted a "Caribbean" house. So I asked them what they thought Caribbean meant and they said they liked wood columns on pedestals and many open porches. So this design is what I came up for them. It's very different from all my other work.

The plans are below and the "Before" photos are the last photos.
Project Cost: $150,001 - $200,000
