Our architectural inspiration comes from the rich history right here in our backyard with Fernandina Beach, Florida. The artisanal homes were crafted by the skilled carpenters often responsible for the boat building industry here in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Their craftsmanship can still be seen on the porch picket details and other embellishments on these homes.
We also draw upon the rich tradition of the “Lowcountry” that emanates from Charleston, SC down the Sea Island Chain to Amelia Island. Lowcountry Architecture is about a relaxed assembly of structures often over time that give you an evolved sense of character over time. Hallmarks of this style are multiple porches to enjoy the views and breezes. Modern adornments include metal roofs, gas lanterns, haint blue porch roof colors and a host of other classic elements that shape this beloved style of homes. Some of the wonderful examples of Lowcountry can be found in the planned communities of Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, SC and Habersham in Beaufort, SC. Many of the same architects of those communities are helping Crane Island with our spirit of Lowcountry with a “Fernandina Twist”.
