Welcome to our Happy House! My parents have owned this house since 1976 and it one of the only houses on the block that survived Hugo in 1989. We had cars and boats under the house, and we had the second story of a front beach house a block away resting calmly against the palm trees in the front of the house. Thank goodness for those palm trees! Needless to say, we were very fortunate.....very fortunate.
It is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath Round house. It was designed and built by Air Force Major Walter Pillsbury in 1967...he was ahead of his league with round houses. In an article sent to me by his wife Pam last year, (from 1967)...."As if a hexagonal-shaped house weren't enough, the major crowned it with a steeple".
The coolest thing to me that Major Pillsbury did was what we have always called "the Bed in the Wall"!....there is a bed in the wall....a twin. I have grown over the years, but when I was 12 years old, I always called it! To me, that is one of our greatest features....needless to say I am now 45 years old. We also have a sleeper sofa.
We have totally rehabbed it this spring. Major had a steeple on top, but it was with deep regret, we had to replace it with a new roof and "Copala"....Mom and Dad just used to hang more plants up to catch the leaks...all good now, and thanks to our contractor Alex! I think the Pillsbury's would approve!
We have also replaced the deck, the bathroom (new tile, countertops, tub, shower, etc),new outdoor shower, and added a new set of stairs to the front. New paint in and out, gutters, etc.....
My Mom named it the "Happy House". It is very user friendly. And now pet friendly as well. It's a house that you can go in and not worry too much about messing up a $50 million dollar piece of furniture.....
We are across the street from the beach...you used to be able to see it...directly...until they built the monster house....so sorry about that. My Dad used to always trim the trees for the views.....
We are very proud of what we have done these past few months. My husband, my sister, and myself, and our friend Alex and his team....incredible carpenters.
Our Dad has Alzheimer's, and I just wish we could take him there one more time....we can't, but I know he would be proud!!
It is a Happy House.... so welcome to our Happy House!!!
