We designed this 3,750 s.t. Florida vernacular home to replace an existing house on a one acre lot in old Plantation. The house consist of four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, family room, formal dining room, office, laundry room/safe room and a joint kitchen, breakfast area and living room. We were required to design the house around the existing pool and pool deck area.
The owners wanted a retro-ranch style five bedroom, three and a half bath, two car garage house with energy saving systems. The house was to have a central living area with a high ceiling for the livingroom and kitchen. The house incorporated solar water heating, solar ventilation, standing seam metal roof, impact Low E glass, duel flush toilets and water conservation devices.
