Photos du Jour: Raisin' the House . . .

Above are two examples of "off-the-ground" 1920/30's-built houses whose owners have decided to raise them even higher post-KTMB. Although both of these Mid City houses along the Bayou St. John Ridge took in water a year ago--you know, because of that admitted human error thing, neither are required by law to be elevated further. I've noticed a handfull of exisitng houses throughout the city in Mid City, Gentilly, and Lakeview that have either already been raised or in the process of being raised. I plan to document as many as possible.

Go down Robert St. between S. Galvez and Fountainbleau and you'll see a terrific example. They did a beautiful job of making the new ground level patio look like it's part of the building, not just stilts.

Thanks for mentioning that house--I will definitely go take a look. I think the raised building concept offers several opportunities that these homeowners wouldn't have otherwise. For instance, yards won't have to be dominated with parked cars in driveways bc the cars can be parked under the structure. These raised houses also have all sorts of opportunities for decks/porches, etc.

I saw that house today I was on the beat for our new blog. We are covering the demolitions and blight. You get raised houses we get about to be razed houses
