Forbes: Elevated and Raised Homes

Pedestal Home, Gulf Coast Island, Hernando County, Florida

Why Elevated: Difficult terrain, flood risk

Rising 18 feet above an enviable island property, this octagon-shaped home rests on a steel-reinforced pedestal that is itself secured by pilings driven deep into the bedrock. The 1,125-square-foot home with vaulted ceilings and wind-resistant windows offers panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico along with two bedrooms, two baths and easy access to the shore.
