Forbes: Elevated and Raised Homes

Loblolly House, Taylors Island, Maryland

Why Elevated: Lighter environmental impact, cool breezes

An elevated single-family home, this abode is located beside a stand of loblolly pines overlooking a meadow and Chesapeake Bay. The 2,200-square-foot, two-story, three-bedroom house rests on pilings 10 feet above the ground. The home itself was built from a kit using materials either made or fabricated within 500 miles of Taylors Island, Maryland.
