Luckily, WaterColors suffered comparatively little damage as a result of Hurricane Irma in September, 2017. The house itself and the oceanfront deck were untouched. Unfortunately, the stairs to the beach got twisted, which caused some of the support beams to crack. We dismantled the stairs and planned to re-install them right away. However, we were then offered the opportunity to build a seawall which would offer us significant protection in the case of another hurricane. We have applied for the required permits but have no idea at the moment when the seawall will be built. In the meantime, it made no sense to rebuild the stair case since we would have to dismantle it when the seawall is being constructed, In the interim, we have built a set of stairs to the beach from the lower level of the house. The stairs are reached through the downstairs game room and are actually easier for beach access than the upper level stairs used to be. When the sea wall is completed, we will re-build the upper level stairs and will also keep those from the lower level. If you have any questions about this, feel free to call or email me!
