Vacation houses should be fun places. I can remember looking forward every Summer to going down the Jersey Shore to "Aunt Mary's Bungalow."
It was about a two hour trip down the Garden State Parkway back in the day from our house in North Jersey. It was a two-bedroom 1200 square foot one-story house with a wrap-around porch on a lagoon lot in Bayville. We would sleep on the pull-out couch, eat on the porch, and spend every other glorious minute on the water catching blowfish, row boating or going crabbing.
So when I design a vacation house, I know just how much fun they can be even if no one sleeps on a pull-out couch anymore. This vacation house is a great example of pulling out all of the stops with the creative use of windows balconies and large open spaces.
