Cool read.

That house also sheltered the one behind it.
I was fascinated by the story. They estimated it doubled the cost per square foot. But it looked like it was worth every penny.

Built to withstand 250 MPH winds. That's impressive.

yeah that's interesting about that house. We have a friend who lives in the Indian Ocean and they routinely build houses like that. Obviously they cost a lot more, but if you're rich I don't know why you wouldn't.

Nowadays, it seems like fewer custom homes are built. It seems like a lot of tract housing is being built where the incentive is to build it as inexpensively as possible, sell it and make your money. If you read that article, there's a lot of concrete reinforcement in that custom home. I bet there aren't a lot of tract homes built like that in Florida.

no, but along an expensive piece of coastline I'd imagine its different. anyway, I still think its stupid to be building and living on barrier islands and or floodplains. Nature wins.

I just bought on high ground on a canal in Jax, the house across the canal from me is much lower and flooded three feet in last years hurricane. Guy moved in a couple weeks before me, paying $150k more for his house. The flood had to be disclosed, not sure I could ever rationalize that. Before I’m jumped on, my house doesn’t even require flood insurance, but I Took it anyway.

Just got back from PC. Panama City proper is still fucked. Big traffic jams from people coming in from the Panama City Beach to the mainland every day to work the recovery, then big traffic jams leaving at the end of the day. The city won't be back for years. About 1/2 the businesses have reopened. Still, many homes left vacant after the storm with literally nothing done. Trees still on roofs.

Ive been thinking a lot about renting vs owning housing. We certainly have made money with investments in houses. But renting means you can live in N.O. or Key West or on a barrier island, invest the money elsewhere, and let somebody else take the disaster risk.

Yeah, many of the people who remained are still all freaked out about things.
