View Finder: Delaware Beach House Remodel

A beach house upgrade captures the best water views and tackles the remodeling process in stages over time.


Base Build With the original deck removed, the sheathing is prepped for a Hypalon roof membrane over which pressure-treated sleepers and then the new decking were installed. The old hatch opening (shown) was filled in and a new opening cut for the spiral stairs.

Liftoff The production team rented a crane to lift up the spiral stairs, lumber, and teak storage boxes. The spiral staircase provides additional structural support, anchoring the deck to the porch.
