project - Florida style retirement home

The owners of this house wanted to bring the feel of their Florida winters back to their new retirement home in Michigan but feared that they would be able to afford it when "pigs flew". We found a way to make it affordable and gave them a craftsman style home. Craftsman style features in a house designed for Midwest living with an open airy feeling common to Oceanside beach houses. A porte cochere enables guests to survive summer storms and a screened porch gives a space for mosquito free lunches.
