Hi megconway,

You are correct. The lower level is built out of waterproof materials, concrete and steel. The concrete was formed with concrete panels.

Take Care,
Dan

Hi socc23,

Thanks for your nice comment about this house.

The concrete floor is left natural and has a clear sealer on it.

Natural concrete can look quite beautiful. You should take a look at the work of Louis Khan,
Le Corbusier, and Tadao Ando if you want to see how master architects work with natural concrete.

Take Care,
Dan

When the garage doors are raised, the path that flood waters could take is clear. For most of the year, the owners use this space as an al fresco family room. “One side opens to the beach, and the other opens to a sheltered patio,” says Nelson.

The walls of the 1st floor are actually industrial garage doors the architects outfitted with fasteners designed to break away under the force of strong waves. The exterior — clad in metal and Vivix siding, a Formica-like product that can look like wood — can also stand up to the elements
