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.
