It was a raised pier home, but the way it was situated it almost looked like a slab home sitting right on the ground. We jacked it up today Oct. 9, 2015 and moved it where it will stay on the property. We lifted it to a height of 16′ to avoid any future flooding issues.

The house was 1740 s.f. and measured 30′ x 58′ with the front and back porches. We had to secure the front porch, and change out some joists and flooring. But it really is structurally sound for what it went through. It truly is a hurricane survivor!
