TYEE BEACH HOUSE

A Year In the Life


In the summer of 2013, we bought a cabin on the beach. Small and simple with fabulous views, it has become a second home that we enjoy for a few days every week.

   

Like most of the homes on our beach, the back of the house fronts the road while the front opens onto a driftwood beach and an amazing ocean-front vista.

 

Autumn sunrise.

 
 

The bulkhead was terribly decayed and its replacement became one of our first projects. With assistance from a local expert in dealing with state and county bureaucracies, it only took 5 months to get a permit to replace it with another log bulkhead.

 

Demolition.

 

Rebuild.

 
   

Bulkhead done. Many thanks to a terrific contractor..

   

Lay some sod and put down pavers that we had saved. Then finish the deck off with pvc decking which we self-installed.

   

Can you say "lime green?"

With shutters or without? We decided without.

   

Pomegranate Seed red. Beautiful Buff yellow trim.

 

A new shed needed to be painted to match.

   

An accent corner. A view from the water.

   

A name and an address to finish it off.

 

Home sweet beach home!
