St Helens Beach Home

I love mid 20th century beach homes, their often modest in size, built in interesting materials and are a joy to still be able to see in coastal towns throughout Tasmania.  This particlar design in the east coast township of St Helens uses vertical overlapping timber boards and has its original windows intact.

  1. I rather like that house. Would it have been the family's primary home or do you believe it was their summer holiday home on the beach? The reason I ask because the east coast towns can be a bit cold and wind-blown in winter, and timber might not be a warm building material.
