This exclusive waterfront custom home, and site of the Luxury Home Show, was built as a vacation and eventual retirement property for this entrepreneur/inventor & his family. The home, which sits almost entirely in the flood plain, is a modern hill country style home. The challenges of this project included the size & complexity of the home (over 9,000 square feet) with features such as high tech motion chairs in the home theater, automated to move and respond to the movie’s action, added to the complexities of building in the flood plain. Also, building in the flood plain pushed the main living floor of the home over 20′ in the air and caused the overall structure to extend almost 50′ in the air. The complexity of the structural engineering made it more like a hotel than a traditional residence.
