Nicknamed "Hurricane Alley" by locals, Wilmington North Carolina sits near the mouth of the Cape Fear River and stretches up along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Each year, homeowners must prepare themselves for high winds and potential flooding caused by storm surges. Located directly on the intercostal waterway, this home was built to withstand winds up to 150mph, complying with some of the nation's most stringent hurricane building codes.
The project, featured in Wrightsville Beach Magazine as a "home of distinction" was a large undertaking with a tremendous amount of detail. Materials were transported to the site from across the country, including mantles and tiles from the client's grandparent's home in the Tidewater region of Virginia and horse-logged walnut floors from woodlands in Wisconsin.
