A new beach home in Seaside Park, NJ

This Seaside Park beach home was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy just a few months after being purchased. The new design is constructed 8′ above the ground on wood pilings in accordance with FEMA guidelines. Raising the floor height above flood levels will provide added protection to the home and this family’s investment for the future. Currently under construction, check back for updates.

Water levels rose 3′ on the interior of the home, requiring a complete demolition due to mold.

      Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to your blog before but
      after browsing through many of the articles I realized it’s new to
      me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!
