MAUMEE, OHIO – Eighteen years of collecting design ideas have turned into reality for the Thompson family on Grand Cayman Island in the Cayman Islands. Their 14,000-square foot dream home includes four levels of living space, breathtaking ocean views and 24 rooms. It also features low-maintenance Fypon products on the exterior.
"Salt air, sea spray and humidity are something we live with every day on the island," says homeowner Melissa Thompson. "We selected our porch railing system, trim work, posts and columns all out of Fypon polyurethane materials because we knew that they could easily hold up to Mother Nature.
"We're pleased with how these detailed trim pieces enhance the overall look of the home exterior. The wrap-around porch in particular serves as a key focal point of our home and the Fypon pieces helped us create the island-casual feeling that we wanted while providing us with no-warp, no-decay products."
It's not surprising that the Thompsons chose Fypon products for their home, since they also sell a great deal of the company's trim pieces at their island business, A. L. Thompson's. Meeting the needs of area customers since 1950, A. L. Thompson's has two retail locations on the island plus a lumberyard and a roof truss plant. With more than 100,000-square feet of space in their main retail location, the company handles the comprehensive needs of builders, remodelers and homeowners on Grand Cayman Island.
"We've had success selling Fypon pieces for the past 15 years," says A. L. Thompson. "Reliable products like these, which are long-lasting and provide beauty to projects, are extremely appreciated in our marketplace. For us, using the Fypon products on our home was a smart, logical choice. We sell these products every day to our customers, so of course we will rely on them for our home."
The Thompson's elegant three-story home was designed for comfort, entertaining and family life. "My favorite rooms in the house are the kitchen, dining room and ballroom," says Melissa Thompson. "These are the rooms that we use the most. When the ballroom is not set up for an event, it's transformed into our young daughter's playroom!"
In addition to the Thompsons' favorite rooms, the home also includes a library, a sitting room with a balcony overlooking the ocean, a gym and a full basement, A variety of bedrooms and nine bathrooms make the home ideal for hosting visitors.
