Bungalow. Kitty Hawk, NC

On the Burling family vacation to Duck, NC, I took an early morning walk in Kitty Hawk— the town immediately to the south. Of course famous for its place in aviation history, Kitty Hawk also has a wonderful collection of beach houses ranging in architectural styles.

It is hard not to appreciate the utility and clean lines of this cedar shingled bungalow.

Happy Valley

Gap Exterior, Happy Valley, OR2… and currently works professionally throughout the United States and abroad, documenting achievements in architecture, design, and engineering in a comprehensive range of building types, interior spaces, and technologies.

Cheaper to build, more durable, and implementing new layout that will facilitate shopping.

Upon completion, we were called in to document the space. The images will be used for both internal and external promotion.
