Kay Stanley and Curt Seymour referenced history and built a brand-new Daufuskie Island house that looks as if it has endured centuries of salty air and sandy feet.

Throughout the home, heart-pine flooring obtained from a South Carolina textile mill recalls history. “It has the original nail holes,” says Kay. “If you look closely, you can still see oil stains from factory weaving machines.” Salvaged beam work and reclaimed interior doors also pack a big punch and add character.
Wood-clad walls, ceilings, and floors give the house a sense of historic charm. Hanging lights by Georgia artist Eloise Pickard.
