Sometimes it brings to mind the really old Florida homes, the cracker homes, and how smartly they were designed for the location. High heat, crazy humidity, no a/c and that was on a good day. These designs still work today, whether tiny, small or grand. Ok, maybe not grand. But absolutely worth reading about and incorporating some of these very old ideas with new technology (think solar panels).

There could be a wrap around porch with a screened in area for a 'sleeping porch' spot as well. House plans are just that; plans. Like recipes, they can usually be messed around with to suit your own taste.
For today, taste some cracker style. It works!
