This Huf Haus was built right on the coast and was raised 1.2 metres above ground to prevent flooding. Despite the beach location, the soil was a heavy clay and drainage generally poor (a soak-away the size of a van sits under the lawn to maximise infiltration).

A verandah was designed and built around three sides of the Haus, to match the distinctive architectural style. Planting was sparse and of the most front-line tough species possible; a dry stream bed acts as a rain garden and overflows to the soak-away.
