I'm back from a summer sabbatical from the Land Use Prof Blog. Thanks to my fellow bloggers for holding down the blogging fort in my absence.
Also, thanks to Will for lending us his apartment in Charleston for a long weekend earlier this month. Will's got the southern hospitality thing down pat, and we really enjoyed ourselves.
While in Charleston we visited Sullivan's Island for a beach walk. Unfortunately we got caught in a thunderstorm, but in the subsequent drive around the island we happened upon this interesting house:
I've seen pictures of homes like this before; they are ostensibly hurricane proof. They're also pretty interesting from an aesthetic point of view, very different from the other beach houses on Sullivan's. If you Google "hurricane proof house" you find some interesting websites of firms who build these types of homes. They're funky, but they may be the wave of the future in coastal architecture.
