I was in Vermont this weekend and found this gem. Vermont was hit hard by Irene and the flooding that followed. So this house had a few feet of water around it and a lot of the houses around it were destroyed or seriously damaged. Under the house was a bunch of 6x6x4ft blocks and the main floor was about 6 feet high. If you have ever seen a house moved they use similar blocks. They had a nice porch and a landing with rocks on the stair case. This was an awesome house and all I can think is that these people are paranoid of another flood. There was a flood last year and 84 years ago. I don’t think this house will last another 83 years for the next flood or even survive another flood.
