Building a house on sticks shoved into the sand. What else would expect to happen?

We wanted a house with a beautiful view
That cost us six hundred grand
We raised it up on sturdy poles
Fifteen feet above the sand

The night wave sounds helped us sleep
With the fresh air from the sea
The beauty of the ocean view
Gave us a feeling of harmony

Then one day a rushing roar
The angry waves were cast
They pummeled against our sturdy poles
And weakened them very fast

We left our home in fear for life
Took whatever we could hold in hand
Driving away and looking back
At our house above the sand

The very next day, our home on the news
As we watched in total dismay
The waves continued their crashing blow
And washed our home away

We’ll rebuild, it’s such a beautiful site
It will cost more than six hundred grand
But it will be worth it in the end
Twenty feet above the sand

It’s foolish people with money to burn
Land lovers continue to mock
Don’t foolish people understand
They should build upon the rock?

No, no…the foolish people cry
The seashore is the perfect stay
And the hurricanes came with angry waves
And again, washed it all away

Piles have to be driven deep, maybe 20 -30 ft and made of steel. Expensive to do but if you are putting a house there you would be foolish to do otherwise.

Damn it! I read the headline so fast I thought it said White House collapsed into the ocean. And I can hardly wait to read the story.

It’s built on sand, what did they expect. It the old days they built beach shacks, when Mother Nature took it, they build another. Now it’s expensive houses with the expectation that the coast remains the same and the climate guys can claim their non sense

They wouldn’t be building there if the Federal Government unconstitutionally wasn’t providing the flood insurance.

I hope that was just a vacation home and they didn’t lose anything irreplaceable. Of course it’s a privilege to have a beach house for any length of time, I suppose. I won’t go into whether they should have built there or not but it seems like the other homes further back are just fine.

Ocean front property, built on sand……a sound investment. Of course the vast majority of these houses are vacation / investment properties, paid for by summer renters paying exorbitant weekly rates. Simply go on Zillow and try to find a beach house that is affordable for the working man.

You build your house on stilts actually IN the ocean, you don’t get to complain when it falls into the sea.

Or in a bowl, 11 feet below sea level with poorly maintained levee walls on the gulf coast which is hurricane central. Yet here we are…………. some dingbat will probably try and make us taxpayer cover their loss.

Here’s a clue…..if you have to build an elevated house just to keep it dry, maybe you’re too close to the ocean.
