Ground was broken on Friday, July 15, on what will be the first ever Texas Monthly Gulf Coast Home at Cinnamon Shore in Port Aransas. The home will feature sustainable interior and exterior building products. It is a partnership between Texas Monthly, Cinnamon Shore, Legacy Builders, Davies Collaborative architectural firm and Brewer Design. ‘We predict it will reflect the best of Texas’ great coastal traditions,’ said David B. Dunham, publisher of Texas Monthly. Once completed, the home will be open for tours, with proceeds from ticket sales going to a Port Aransas nonprofit organization to be determined. Tours are expected to be conducted during the summer of 2017.
