The above photo is actually a home in the adjoining neighborhood.

Our community dock.
The above photo shows why we don't use the lower levels of our homes on the island for living space. We use the area as our garage and for storage. Houses built to code must design the lowest level to "blow-out," if they are enclosed, so that the walls can break away during a storm surge and not create more resistance on the struture.
