What a beautiful spring day — sunny and warm, perfect for a bike ride. I love pedaling around my coastal community. However, these days what I pass while riding my bicycle is rather unusual.
Homes that sit particularly low in flood prone areas are being raised, sometimes as much as a full story. And the two houses pictured here are just the beginning. I noticed at least six more that are being prepped for elevation.
These raised structures now loom over their neighboring houses. Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy has forever changed the integrity of ours and so many other waterfront communities.
