At first, Willie Coffey scoffed at the idea of building a vacation home on a marshy tract adjacent to a busy thoroughfare in coastal Delaware. He and his wife, Debbie, wanted something roomier than the waterfront townhouse they owned near Bethany Beach. He didn't see much potential in the parcels his wife had been eyeing for several weeks. Then, while the Baldwin couple drove along Delaware's Route 1 in North Bethany one day, Debbie Coffey said, "Stop the car or I'm jumping off," he recalled.
