Passersby may have been wondering what is going on at the corner of 2nd and F Streets. 

   Last year, Jim and Nancy Mason purchased roughly two and a half lots with a giant oak tree in the middle. They  have had a home designed to fit around the tree with special consideration for  protecting the roots.         The house will be built in two phases and joined with a screen breezeway. 

   The Masons obtained approval of the design from the Cedar Key Historic Preservation/Architectural Review Board  and hope to start building soon. The high elevation of the lots will allow them to build close to the ground and ensure that the home blends seamlessly into the historic neighborhood.
