Olde Naples Custom Home - Construction Management
This Olde Naples custom home is a lower delta Louisianan influence structure. The home’s original exterior design came from photos from the early 1920s that displayed a home north of New Orleans that fit the desires of the home owners plan for southern living in its finest and most simple endeavors. The metal roof lines complement the large fourteen foot wide wrap-around porches with exposed ceiling beams and T&G cypress and a master sleeping porch, with double mahogany doors that exit the kitchen, living room, bed rooms, master bedroom and main entry way.
The structural walls are 12’’ concrete block and the floor is cast 8’’ reinforced concrete. The interior finishes were a variety of “old world” materials installed with the precision of modern construction principles. The wood flooring was reclaimed wood from the structural beams that supported the floor of the George A. Dickle & Company Distillery in Tullahoma, Tennessee. The bath fixtures reflected the 1920s theme with claw feet tubs and pedestal sinks with a custom made privacy curtain.

a stamped metal ceiling and custom made cabinets with custom designed soap-stone countertops. The great room incorporates a period fire-place with mantle and trim. The family room and home office are adjacent to the great room with the ability to close off openness from the main living area via two beautiful large South American mahogany pocket doors. This insures the viewing of television or relaxation of the family/office without interference of activities transpiring in other portions of the home.
The master bedroom is constructed with Ole New Orleans in mind. The master ceiling is stepped mansard planking and period trim with access to the master sleeping porch that incorporates floor to ceiling Bahamas’ shutters to allow the owner the ability to “sleep in” and not be influenced by sunrise on an easterly facing porch.
The exterior of the home is color-intergraded Arcus-Stone that eliminates the need for painting and brings an earthy ambiance to the design. The landscaping is native tropical in character and provides ample space for the family croquet court.
