Fortified Home – A Beach House Designed To Survive Storms

Fortified Home Design Ideas. Water Front Fortified Home built on Concrete Pillars. Fortified homes help strengthen homes from hurricanes, high winds, hail, and severe thunderstorms. The special features of the home include continuous load paths (roof-to-wall connection, wall-to-floor connection, and floor-to-foundation connection), bracing on gables and storm-proof windows. The fortified beach home has also received a well deserving GOLD rating. Built by Caldwell & Johnson Custom Builders & Remodelers

 

I first liked this home for its comfortable and relaxed interiors but after talking to the interior designer who actually built this home, Tina Caldwell from Caldwell & Johnson Custom Builders & Remodelers, I found out this is not just a pretty beach house. It also carries a very substantial design. This is in fact a Fortified Home, which means that it was built beyond emergency and disaster preparedness. This home was built to protect the homeowners from hurricanes, high winds, hail, and severe thunderstorms.

This waterfront “fortified” home was built on concrete pillars and it was the first of its kind to be certified as a Fortified Home in the Northeast Atlantic region. The special features of the home include continuous load paths (roof-to-wall connection, wall-to-floor connection, and floor-to-foundation connection), bracing on gables and storm-proof windows. The fortified beach home has also received a well deserved GOLD rating.

This post will show you that safe homes never looked so good!
