This is a single family, beachfront residence located on Hutchinson Island near Stuart FL. Due to the open ocean exposure, the frame of the building required a very efficient structure. This was accomplished by drilling auger cast piling to the rock substrate; extending the piling as concrete columns up to a cast in place concrete deck to provide a ridgid foundation lifting the house above the predicted storm surge. The house itself is constructed with timber frame with fiber-cement exterior siding and a metal roof. The house was tested by Hurricane Wilma with no significant damage.
