eco friendly kitchen island
The original owners went to great lengths to maintain the integrity of the land - bringing in beams with cranes so they wouldn't have to cut down many trees. And all the cabinetry and wood supports including the living room mantel are made by Good Mill Work with local deadhead cypress.

eco friendly home built with deadhead cypress
Zesty Nest: To get the cypress trunks they dive into the Apalachicola River and pull up logs that fell into the river over 150 years ago when loggers where moving them down the river. It's almost pitch black down there, so the divers are specially trained to feel for the logs, and be very still if an alligator swims across!
