NAHB's Home of the Week is Austin, Texas’ "Ship in the Sky," designed and built for a female ship captain who skillfully pilots some of the largest ships in the world safely through the Houston ship channel. The home was constructed on a lot located entirely in the floodplain and with a limited view corridor to the lake. The imposing structure sits almost 50 feet high at its peak, with the main living area suspended 21 feet in the air, and a cantilevered study off the main living. A three-floor stop elevator was built to accommodate both indoor and outdoor landings.
