Surrounded by palm trees and the warm salt air of the nearby Intracoastal Waterway, Doug of Lighthouse Point, Florida, has no trouble feeling like he lives in the Sunshine State. His home, however, lacked the old Florida feel he wanted, so he started remodeling to bring some Key West character and charm to the late 1960s-era home.
“I tried to make the house look like an old Florida home with lap board siding and tongue-and-groove accents,” Doug says. When he started looking for exterior lighting, he wanted something that would last.
