TUCKER BEACH HOUSE
HUTCHINSON ISLAND, FLORIDA
A simple little beach house an hour north of Ft. Lauderdale for a family getaway. Two bedrooms (bunk beds for the children), doors and fixed glass all around, fir plywood floors and ceilings, solid core flush doors for partitions, decks on the east and west side. Pressure treated piles were driven into the sand until they hit rock, and extended up to become the structural columns.
The house site was carved out of the Seagrape and Palmetto covered sand dune . . . . This could not be done today with coastal construction restrictions.
