An interesting fact, barely visible in the historic photos, is that the house was originally just at the high tide line (which is why it's up on stilts). The vast beach at the beginning of the video was added ca. 1940, when the local authorities dredged the marsh to the east, turning it into a bay with a peninsula, where the house is, on the ocean side. They trucked the dredgings westward to extend the beach.
