Home Building on an Island
In this Original Build Series, a mainland custom home builder embarks on a mission to build a new custom home on an island 12 miles offshore.

How will he navigate the logistics and build a home in a reasonable amount of time? How does concrete and lumber get out to the island?

These are just a few of the many challenges Wade, principal of WKP Construction will face as he sets aim to build a high-performance home out at sea.

With frequent cancellations of ferries and grounding of small planes due to weather, how will this impact the build? Where does the workforce come from since the island is extremely limited with tradesmen and tradeswomen?

There are so many questions and challenges. As Wade says "nothing is going to be easy, and we're prepared for that." Block Island is a harsh environment. Homes get battered with salty air, wind, and storms.

It's just another challenge for Wade's team to build a home that is going to withstand the elements and last for generations to come.
