RIVER ROAD HOUSE
Lumberville, Pennsylvania

This compact house elevated ten feet above the Delaware River flood plain offers a spectacular view and protection from rising waters. Replacing the owners' original cottage which was heavily damaged by successive floods, the upper level contains an open living area, two bedrooms, a study, and two full baths. A large wood deck overlooking the river expands the living space. The lower level provides an open-air carport, covered terrace and small flood-resistant enclosure for stairs and storage. The structure and materials were specified carefully to comply with FEMA requirements.
