owners was a sea captain . His wife wanted to keep him happy while they were living in the mountains . As a result , there are many nauticallythemed features in the house . In the former living room , there ’ s a porthole window . In the master bedroom above , there used to be a little poop deck , like off of the back of a ship . Off the corner of the living room , they built a porch that was shaped like the prow of a ship . The porch is gone today , but it was enormous . The upper pond used to be twice the size that it now is , so the porch basically went to the edge of the pond . The idea was that the sea captain could stand out on the front of the porch and pretend that he was back on his boat with the water practically at his feet . The front porch ( which still remains ) is made with lap string and looks like the hull of a boat .
