Lubke was really good about letting us know in advance what additional problems we would be facing and when we had concerns they were very professional in addressing those concerns and exceptionally responsive. We have been in our house for about a year and a half and we could not be happier with the quality and beauty of the house.

Navigating the Demolition Process: Transforming Waterfront Homes on the Gulf Coast

In the dynamic landscape of the Gulf Coast, particularly on the barrier islands, the task of building a home that meets FEMA compliance standards can be challenging due to the scarcity of open lots. Clients often find themselves in a situation where existing homes may not align with FEMA regulations, prompting the consideration of demolition to pave the way for a new, compliant structure. This blog and video explores the intricate process of demolishing waterfront homes, emphasizing the benefits of opting for a FEMA-compliant rebuild, including enhanced peace of mind, favorable insurance rates, and long-term property value. Check out the video below to see the process in action. 

The Challenge of Building on Barrier Islands: The limited availability of open lots on barrier islands presents a significant challenge for those aspiring to build a home that adheres to FEMA standards. The geographical constraints necessitate strategic decision-making, leading many clients to evaluate the demolition option for existing structures that may not meet current compliance requirements.

FEMA Compliance and Peace of Mind: Discussing the importance of FEMA compliance, there is the peace of mind associated with constructing a home that meets or exceeds regulatory standards. By opting for a demolition and rebuild approach, homeowners mitigate the risk of future complications related to non-compliance, ensuring a secure and resilient dwelling in the face of potential natural disasters.

Insurance Benefits: Explore the tangible benefits of choosing a FEMA-compliant rebuild in the context of insurance. By adhering to regulatory guidelines, homeowners often gain access to more favorable insurance rates. Often times reconstruction can translate into cost savings over the long term, providing a financial incentive for such a strategic approach. Speak with your insurance agency to understand the opportunities

Long-Term Value Proposition: There is an enduring value that a FEMA-compliant home brings to homeowners. Beyond immediate benefits, such as peace of mind and insurance advantages, a home constructed with resilience in mind stands the test of time, maintaining and increasing its value in the real estate market.

In conclusion, the process of demolishing a home on the waterfront and rebuilding to FEMA compliance is a strategic and forward-thinking approach for clients in the Gulf Coast region. By prioritizing safety, insurance advantages, custom luxury designed just for you, and long-term property value, homeowners can navigate the challenges of coastal construction with confidence, aligning with the principles of strength and innovation that define the LUBKE.

Maximizing Waterfront Living: The Art of Positioning Your Coastal Home for Gulf Sunrises and Sunsets

When it comes to creating your dream coastal home on the beautiful Gulf Beaches of Florida, every detail matters. From the choice of materials to the architectural design, one crucial aspect that often sets apart a stunning waterfront residence is the meticulous consideration of its position on the lot. At Lubke Homes, we understand that crafting a luxury, coastal masterpiece goes beyond masonry structures; it’s about embracing the natural beauty around us. In this blog post, we’ll explore the vital importance of positioning your home correctly when living on the water, focusing on sun exposure, breathtaking views, elevated decks, and how we harness the angles of the sun to make the most of both Gulf Beach sunrises and sunsets.

Sun Exposure Matters:

Florida’s sunny climate is one of its main attractions, and making the most of it can significantly enhance your coastal living experience. The position of your home on your lot plays a pivotal role in this regard. At Lubke Homes, our dedicated team carefully assesses the sun’s path throughout the day to ensure optimal sun exposure while also considering shade for comfort. This balance is key to creating outdoor spaces that are perfect for relaxation and entertaining.

Captivating Views, from Sunrise to Sunset:

Living by the water offers a unique opportunity to enjoy breathtaking vistas every day. On the Gulf Beaches, both the sunrise and sunset are truly remarkable. To fully appreciate these moments, it’s essential to strategically position your home. Our design and construction process at Lubke Homes takes pride in ensuring that your home is oriented to capture the most awe-inspiring Gulf Beach sunrises and sunsets. We believe that each day should begin and end with the beauty of nature’s artwork.

Elevated Decks for Sunrise and Sunset Bliss:

Imagine starting your day with the gentle glow of the sunrise over the Gulf waters and ending it with the vibrant hues of a sunset. Elevated decks offer a spectacular vantage point for both of these daily spectacles, and their placement is a crucial consideration in coastal home design. Lubke Homes carefully positions these decks to ensure that Gulf Beach sunrises and sunsets become an integral part of your coastal lifestyle.

Understanding Solar Angles for Sunrise and Sunset Views:

To fully appreciate the brilliance of Gulf Beach sunrises and sunsets, it’s essential to understand the intricacies of solar angles. The angle of sunlight during these moments creates a unique and magical atmosphere. Lubke Homes takes this into account during the design process to ensure that your home is optimized for capturing these mesmerizing moments, creating unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.

Front and Rear Views:

While the focus is often on the rear views facing the water, the front of your home also matters. At Lubke Homes, we consider the aesthetics and functionality of the front side of your residence, making sure that even the approach to your home is a prelude to the grandeur of Gulf Beach sunrises and sunsets.


When you choose Lubke Homes for your coastal dream home, you’re selecting a dedicated team that understands the intricacies of waterfront living and the unparalleled beauty of Gulf Beach sunrises and sunsets. We take pride in the art of positioning homes correctly on their lots to maximize sun exposure, capture breathtaking views, and create unforgettable outdoor spaces that make every day begin and end with a world-class sunrise and sunset. Enjoy the Gulf Beaches to the fullest with Lubke Homes, where the beauty of nature meets the excellence of design, and each day is framed by the magic of the sun.

Custom Homes and Lighting... Getting it Right!

The allure of a custom home nestled on the waterfront is undeniable. The stunning views, the serene atmosphere, and the sense of tranquility that comes with living by the water are incomparable. However, to truly create a haven that captures the essence of waterfront living, it’s crucial to pay attention to every detail of your home’s design. One of the most impactful elements that can elevate the ambiance and functionality of your waterfront abode is the choice of lighting fixtures. In this article, we’ll explore how the right lighting fixtures can make all the difference in your custom home on the water, and how the expertise of the LUBKE Design Center Team can guide you in making the perfect choices.

**The Role of Lighting Fixtures**

Lighting fixtures go beyond mere illumination; they are artistic expressions that set the tone for a space. In a waterfront home, the interplay between natural light and carefully curated artificial lighting can create a mesmerizing and inviting environment. Here’s how lighting fixtures play a crucial role:

1. **Enhancing Ambiance**: Whether you’re enjoying a quiet evening by the water or hosting a gathering, lighting fixtures can transform the ambiance. Soft, warm lighting can create a cozy and intimate atmosphere, while bright, vibrant lighting can energize the space for lively events.

2. **Showcasing Views**: A well-designed lighting scheme can emphasize the beauty of your waterfront views, even after the sun sets. Thoughtfully placed fixtures can highlight key elements, such as the shimmering water, lush landscapes, or a distant skyline.

3. **Defining Spaces**: Different areas of your waterfront home may have distinct purposes, from the living room to the outdoor patio. Lighting fixtures can delineate these spaces, making them feel purposeful and well-defined.

4. **Artistic Statements**: Lighting fixtures are more than functional; they’re art pieces that can express your personal style and enhance the overall aesthetic of your home. From modern minimalist fixtures to intricate chandeliers, the possibilities are endless.

**The LUBKE Design Center Team: Your Lighting Partners**

Navigating the vast world of lighting fixtures can be overwhelming, especially when you want to make choices that complement the waterfront environment. This is where the expertise of the LUBKE Design Center Team comes into play.

1. **Professional Consultation**: The LUBKE Design Center Team comprises seasoned professionals who understand the nuances of lighting design. They’ll collaborate with you to understand your preferences, lifestyle, and the unique features of your waterfront home.

2. **Tailored Solutions**: Every home on the water is distinctive. The LUBKE team will curate lighting solutions that harmonize with your home’s architecture, interior design, and the surrounding landscape. Whether you’re aiming for a coastal, contemporary, or timeless look, they’ll guide you to the perfect choices.

3. **Latest Trends and Innovations**: Staying up-to-date with the latest trends and lighting technologies is a challenge. With the LUBKE team on your side, you’ll have access to cutting-edge options that can enhance both the aesthetic and efficiency of your lighting fixtures.

4. **Complete Support**: From initial concepts to final installation, the LUBKE Design Center Team will be with you every step of the way. Their commitment to delivering unparalleled service ensures a seamless and stress-free experience.

With the guidance of the LUBKE Design Center Team, you can elevate your waterfront home to a realm of timeless beauty and comfort. By embracing the power of exquisite lighting fixtures, you’ll not only illuminate your surroundings but also illuminate your life by the water.

Maximizing Space: Creative Design Solutions for a Custom Home on the Gulf Coast of Florida with a limited in size property lot.


Building a custom home is a dream for many, but the available limited-in-size property lots often seen on the barrier islands of the Gulf Coast can pose a unique design challenge. However, building a luxury custom home on a smaller lot on Florida’s breathtaking Gulf Coast doesn’t mean sacrificing comfort or style. In this blog post, we’ll explore creative design solutions to maximize space and create a functional, inviting, and beautiful custom home that embraces the coastal lifestyle.

  • Embrace Open Concept Design

   When dealing with limited square footage, consider an open-concept layout that combines multiple functional areas into one fluid space. Removing unnecessary walls creates an airy and spacious ambiance, making the home feel larger than its actual size.

  • Focus on Clever Storage Solutions

   Effective storage is essential in small custom homes. Incorporate built-in shelves, under-stair storage, and floor-to-ceiling cabinets to optimize every inch of available space. With the FEMA Firm 2.0 guidance, your ground floor will provide plenty of storage.

  • Capture Natural Light:

   Maximizing natural light can make a small space feel more open and inviting. Large windows and glass doors allow sunlight to flood the interior, creating an airy and cheerful atmosphere.

  • Extend Living Spaces Outdoors

   Embrace the beautiful Gulf Coast weather by designing outdoor living spaces as an extension of the home. A well-designed patio, deck, or balcony can serve as an additional entertainment area, perfect for enjoying sunsets and ocean views.

  • Choose Light Color Palettes

   Light and neutral color schemes visually expand a room and make it feel more spacious. Opt for soft pastels, whites, and light blues to reflect the coastal environment and enhance the sense of openness.

  • Incorporate Multi-Level Design

   Consider multi-level design solutions to create visual interest and make the most of vertical space. A loft or open tower can provide additional space and views

  • Customized Built-Ins

   Custom-built furniture and cabinetry tailored to the home’s dimensions ensure a perfect fit. Custom solutions allow for efficient use of space and can be designed to accommodate specific needs and lifestyle preferences.

  • Emphasize Outdoor Views

   Design the layout to optimize sightlines towards the Gulf Coast’s scenic views. Orientating living areas and bedrooms towards the water can enhance the overall living experience and make the home feel more connected to its natural surroundings.

  • Smart Home Technology

    Embrace smart home technology to streamline and simplify daily living. Automated lighting, temperature control, and security systems save space and add convenience to daily routines.


Building a small custom home on Florida’s Gulf Coast offers an opportunity to create a charming and practical living space that celebrates the beauty of the coastal environment. By implementing these creative design solutions and prioritizing space optimization, homeowners can enjoy a functional and stylish custom home that maximizes every square inch and embodies the spirit of coastal living. With the right design, a limited-in-size property lot can become a place of comfort, relaxation, and cherished memories for years to come.

Designing a kitchen for a new custom luxury home requires careful attention to detail and a focus on creating a space that is not only functional but also exudes elegance and sophistication. Here are some factors that should be considered for the kitchen design:


  1. Space Planning and Layout: Assess the available space and layout options to determine the most efficient and aesthetically pleasing arrangement for the kitchen. Consider the work triangle (the relationship between the refrigerator, stove, and sink) to ensure a smooth workflow.


  1. High-End Appliances: Luxury homes often feature top-of-the-line appliances with advanced technology and premium finishes. Consider including high-end brands and features like built-in espresso machines, wine coolers, and smart home integration for the kitchen.


  1. Premium Materials: Opt for high-quality materials that elevate the kitchen’s look and feel. This might include luxurious countertops like marble or granite, custom cabinetry with intricate detailing, and high-end fixtures and hardware.


  1. Ample Storage: Luxury kitchens should have ample storage to keep the space clutter-free and organized. Include custom cabinets, pull-out drawers, and clever storage solutions to accommodate the homeowner’s needs.


  1. Smart Technology: Integrate smart technology into the kitchen design, such as touchless faucets, voice-controlled appliances, and automated lighting and blinds.


  1. Lighting Design: Pay close attention to the lighting design to create an inviting ambiance. Combine task lighting for food preparation areas, ambient lighting for a warm atmosphere, and accent lighting to highlight architectural features or artwork.


  1. Entertaining Space: Consider the kitchen’s role as a space for entertaining guests. Incorporate a kitchen island or a bar area with seating to facilitate interaction and socialization during gatherings.


  1. Flooring and Backsplash: Choose premium flooring materials that are not only beautiful but also durable and easy to maintain. For the backsplash, consider using luxurious materials like glass tiles or mosaic designs.


  1. Ventilation: Proper ventilation is crucial, especially in luxury kitchens where elaborate cooking may take place. High-quality range hoods or ventilation systems should be installed to keep the air clean and free of odors.


  1. Personalization: Working closely together the designer and homeowner should seek to understand specific needs, preferences, and lifestyle. Tailor the kitchen design to reflect individual taste and personality.


  1. Energy Efficiency: Despite the luxurious nature of the home, incorporate energy-efficient appliances and lighting to reduce the home’s environmental impact and operating costs.


  1. Integration with the Overall Home Design: Ensure that the kitchen design complements the overall architectural style and interior design of the custom luxury home, creating a seamless and harmonious living space.


By considering these factors and collaborating closely with the homeowner, the LUBKE designer can create a stunning, functional, and luxurious kitchen that becomes the centerpiece of the custom luxury home.

  3. Collaboration and Accountability: LUBKE fosters collaboration between architects, engineers, and builders from the early stages. This integrated approach enhances accountability, ensuring that everyone is aligned toward achieving the client’s goals.

When choosing a design-build company like LUBKE clients should consider the following:

Check out our work here! LUBKE’s experience in building coastal, custom luxury homes can be seen up and down all of the FL Gulf Beaches, you can’t drive far without seeing the LUBKE blue sign and our signature designs.
  2. Communication and Collaboration: Inquire about the firm’s approach to communication and collaboration with clients. Clear and open lines of communication are crucial throughout the project. At LUBKE we utilize BuilderTrend for client interaction and satisfaction. The entire company is aligned using the EOS Platform for internal accountability, communication, and working on the company to best meet our client’s needs. LUBKE’s commitment to client communication and collaboration can be evidenced in the fact that we have a full-time Director of Client Services committed to seeking to serve our clients for a great client experience.

While many of our clients are building their “Forever Homes”, there are several Lubke homes that have been re-sold by the original owners that have broken various price records.

In July of 2021, this Lubke home located at 206 Sydney Lane, Redington Shores sold. Its resale set the record for waterfront homes in the six beach communities between Madeira Beach and Indian Rocks Beach. This two-year-old home was on the market for just 11 days before it went under contract for $2,800,000.

The thing that is more interesting than the record-breaking sales price for this re-sale home, is what the home did not have. With 3,725 square feet of conditioned space and a narrow 60’ canal without a spectacular view, this was not an exceptionally large home.

What this home did not have in land and size it made up for in forward-thinking design, with clean lines and great attention to detail. Lubke homes are known as the gold standard for strength and quality on the barrier islands, and buyers recognize this.

While many of our clients are building the forever home of their dreams, there are Lubke homes that have been re-sold by the original owners at record-breaking values.

In 2020, this Lubke home set a record for the highest dollar per square foot in the eight towns between St Pete Beach and Indian Rocks Beach. When our team designed and built this home, the focus was on creating something truly unique.
