Save and splurge. The design team was able to keep costs down with the economical use of space – triple-height bunk beds, for instance, squeeze in more accommodation on the limited floor area – but the big splurge was the vertical bifold timber shutter and double-height steel-framed glass doors, which together open up to provide a shaded outdoor room.See more of this beach shack

BEACHSettle inHere in NZ, we have some of the most incredible beaches and coastal vistas to be found, as well as an abundance of properties – both new and old – built to allow us to enjoy them. You may love the country, but then again, the call of the ocean, with sand right up to your doorstep, is hard to resist.With coastal properties within a couple of hours’ drive of the city becoming increasingly hard to find, however, coast lovers may have to settle for close-in neighbours and traffic at popular beaches.

The beach is so dreamy in winter, and after a storm it becomes the ideal place to find delicious native (and non-native) seaweeds and coastal succulents. Bull kelp is plentiful, and delicious! When it’s good it’ll look like a long wet eel, heavy and dewy. There’s a beautiful salinity and texture with this particular seaweed – Google for a range of ways to eat. There’s horokaka, which are plum little buds, slightly furry with a crisp interior, and samphire, the coastal succulent of choice at many upmarket restaurants. Pickled, it’s wonderful, tangy, salty and balanced.

maybe a big swinging glass door is better than a slider OD an accordion because it provides wind block when open but still doesn't block view.
