Key West + Bungalow Style Exterior

I saved the exterior for last:-)  The style of the inside of the house was formed initially by what we wanted the outside to look like.  My husband, David, is from Florida originally and really wanted it to be a "Florida" house.  We put together the Key West look of the outside with the high pitched metal roof, Hardee Board, and 2 story wrap around porches for that extended outdoor living space.  The interior is the bungalow style with no wasted space and open areas. I still have a lot to do with the outdoor space, but out front I like so far:-)  I added flowering perennials and a pink/gray marble edging just to give it something a little extra.   When we were interviewing builders and asking our friends, you don't hear very often where people have had a great experience with that process.  No matter what it's definitely challenging but I can say that we overall had a great experience with Fuller Construction.  Josh was great to work with and very responsive and super on top of the whole process.  The actual build itself only took 5 months to complete, which is really good for a custom build.  Overall, between purchasing the land, the architecture, and building it was a 3 year process but we weren't in a hurry and it was totally worth it!
