 The “Florida Basement”: A Southwest Florida Homeowner’s Dream Come True! For as long as Southwest Florida home builders can recall, basements have been an unattainable addition to the majority of homes being developed in the Florida area. While many homeowners have longed to provide their home with this room of unlimited storage space, the sandy soil of Southwest Florida, along with the close proximity of the water table to the surface have been prohibiting factors to their existence. Fortunately, Southwest Florida home builders are saying that they have discovered the solution to building what they have dubbed a “Florida basement”. Since this new tropical basement has earned its own special title, you can expect that it’s not your average basement and that there’s an added twist. That being said, the Florida basement is simply a three-car garage that provides home owners with all of the features they would normally receive from an underground basement. Future homeowner, Sam Morelli is one of the proud owners of this Florida basement (three-car garage) and he couldn’t be more thrilled to make use of the extra storage space. In his eyes, he is singing the sweet song of “more storage” as the builders make the finishing touches to his new home. And apparently, he’s not the only one that has been singing the high-praises of these three-car garages. Josh Graeve, general sales manager for the Pulte Group, said third-car garages have been in high-demand and for a wide variety of buyers too. In fact, many home builders are already adding these wonderful third-car-garage-basement units as an extra bonus to their up and coming floor plans. So there you have it Southwest Florida, the public has spoken. Your golf carts and bikes can finally breathe and the Florida basement is here to stay!
