he Seabrook 2 is an adaptation of our Seabrook with special features for coastal living. The most noticeable change is that the Seabrook 2 is designed to be constructed utilizing Insulated Concrete Forms with 12" walls and all steel framing for the ultimate strength to better withstand the force of hurricane winds. These changes and others make our plan a "Green Design" that exceeds the Green Council standards for Green Design when constructed properly. Other changes include the addition of a ground level garage beneath the entire first floor living space. This area is totally covered and can be secured. The large space is accessed from the main house with stairs and an elevator leading directly to the center of the living area above. Five automobiles may be stored below or a combination of automobiles and boats when not in use. Arched openings with ornate iron work reflect typical Charleston detailing and allow water to pass through in the event of high water during tropical storm surges.
This home is typical of the charming, historic Charleston homes with Palladian design elements tastefully blended into functional features that respond to the need for shaded, breezy spaces for relaxing outside and large open areas inside. The design evokes the special, historic, low country style with terracotta colored, standing seam, metal roofing, tabby or stucco exterior, tall windows and high ceilings throughout.
