Stan & I designed & built this house upon moving from up north 8 years ago as our future retirement home and ongoing vacation home for our family. Stan works as an Manufacturing engineer in Gainesville 3 hours away and I am a retired teacher. Most of the year one or both of us are on the island in our house as well as our family members. My favorite things to do are making pottery/crafts and jewelry...reading...walking the beach for sea shells or fossils and gardening.
