Forbes: Elevated and Raised Homes

Marsh House, Keaton Beach, Florida

Why Elevated: Flood protection, better views

Elevated 17 feet above a coastal marsh, this home on stilts overlooks the Gulf Coast in Florida. Weather was a primary concern–the home is built to resist 150 mph winds with shatterproof windows able to withstand flying debris. At 1,650 square feet, the three-bedroom home is also meant to exploit gorgeous weather, too, offering a sun room, a large open living room with vaulted ceilings and an abundance of ocean views.
