THE SEAWALL

We moved to Live Oak Island May 5, 2017 and two years later we had experienced enough high tides, storms, and hurricanes to convince us of the need to better protect the concrete foundation with a seawall. It would also better protect my aching back from all the seaweed shoveling after each storm.

The pictures in this story show evidence of the floods we were encountering before the seawall was constructed, the building of the seawall, and the evidence of the job it has been doing in flood conditions since it was built.

We used about 10 yards of concrete and dug trenches two feet below ground to ensure adequate protection. Initial construction began on May 1, 2019 and project was completed and the sod was laid on June 7, 2019.

I hope you enjoy the pictures!
