This floating house was designed with security, outdoor space, and views in mind. Built one floor off the ground, this house has one controlled point of entry and has spectacular views from the second floor rooms and third floor decks. The size of the lot didn’t leave much room for outdoor space, so we created two roof decks on the third level, a potential roof deck on the 4th level, and two covered porches on the front and back of the ground level. The back porch was designed to ultimately be a screened in porch allowing year round outdoor access. The 3rd level decks offer one deck on the north side for shade in the summer and one deck on the south side for sun in the winter.
