Desperately seeking beach house

In days gone by the cheap houses were clad in an asbestos cement sheeting branded "Fibrolite.  "Fibro" became a household name as it's reputation spread, much more rapidly than knowledge of the terrible lung diseases asbestos causes.

Still, a beach house isn't a beach house with at least a panel or two of "fibro" look alike, painted improbably in colours which were a mix of all the left over cans of paint that could be scrounged.
