Accommodating an extended family within a modest footprint lead to the selection of very durable finishes. Porcelain tile, repairable plaster walls, solid oak cabinetry and composite countertops are all worry free selections, appropriate for beach living. Fixed finishes are all toned in a grey sand color in response to the sand dune the house is perched on. Many custom built ins were designed and built, respecting the scale of the house. Pops of color in artwork selections and accessories punctuate the house and outdoor spaces.
