Piping Rock Renovation
The family for this renovation was looking to add a bedroom and bathroom to provide space for family to visit and stay for extended periods of time. Using the footprint of the existing garage for a new primary bedroom suite, a new garage was added help frame the existing swimming pool as well as provide a covered outdoor area for entertaining. Additional areas of the home (including laundry facilities and a coffee bar) were renovated to provide more functionality in how the family lives their life.

Located in a community along the Gulf Coast, this new single family residence creates a place of of rest and relaxation. Working with the local vernacular language of stilt frame wood construction, the elevated main level captures views, sun, shade, and breeze at all times of day and night. Vaulted ceilings, a bright sun room, and a cozy loft offer diverse spaces to unwind from the day and spend time with family and friends.
