On April 17, 1877 a lumber schooner, the Johns S. Lee was lost at sea. 138 years later, a family set out to build a beach home on Figure Eight Island. The remains of the old schooner were discovered just below the sand. The new beach home is built like a well-designed ship, paying homage to the John S. Lee; crafted from steel, concrete and impact rated glass, the home is able to weather a hurricane while affording access to sun, view, and sea breezes from every vantage.
