The CAPTAIN HOUSE Concept

The Captain House began as a personal project...a home for me. I have sailed alone at sea and see a place like this to come home to after being at sea for extended periods of time...a place of rest.
I have since morphed this design several times adapting the design to a sloped site and a Vacation Rental version for the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Rental Version I am about to build.
As a human who loves to be outside in all conditions, the walk-around covered decks actually make functional sense if...like me...one wants to be outside even during a storm. With a covered deck on all sides, anyone can be on a side of the house and out of even the nastiest of winds and rain.
