We call this ‘the house where the dolphins and manatees play’. They seem to show up when you least expect it and put on a show like no other-catching a fish and throwing it up and catching it again or the manatee with her newborn by her side right at the dock.
My multi-talented guy designed it and was the builder.
He created a kitchen with a backdrop the same color as the crystal clear springs-it is a little like the water is reflected in the tile. I didn’t include a photo of our bathroom sinks but they are glass bowls of a similar color. The springs in this area of the world run deep in the earth and when they bubble up to the surface near our house, they are a beautiful color similar to the tile and glass in the house.
The springs near the house keep the water at 76 degrees all year long. In the summer, it feels refreshingly cool and in the winter, it is warmer than the air. The manatees come in large numbers to keep warm during the cooler months and some stay all year long.
