new build: main structure

The timbers and planks for the outdoor room are salvage from the Sea House Pleasure Pier when it closed in the early ‘60s, when that kind of pleasure was no longer popular nor profitable. They had been stored in a warehouse with other artifacts, apparently forgotten until they were rediscovered by two of the Sea House heirs and put up for auction in July, 2007.

the builder considers the view from the newly completed main deck, and contemplates landscaping, cheese, if time is more like a wave or a spiral, and the stories old wood can tell

The builder swears the wood smells like sea air and pink popcorn, and when cut, you can sometimes hear the sound of waves from under the pier.
