Nice house. It's not a "Florida Cracker" style house, though. Those were the older, southern, one story wooden homes from before air conditioning was invented. This is a modern stilt style house. I'm one of the rare Florida natives and have family spread all the way down into the Florida Keys. Here is an original Cracker house:

Really? Neat. My husband, son (14), and I were all three born here. It's good that Florida's a tourist state so that we don't have to pay a state tax, but, we certainly do have a lot of tourists to deal with. After I posted here I went in search of modern style cracker houses and found a nice plan here:

Please don't feel badly at all about this house. It's a great one. It just happened that my Step-Grandmother had lived in a cracker style house, so between that and having visited Heritage Park I was pretty familiar with the older styles of them.
