Building a Home that Survives the Big One

Hurricanes wreck waterfront homes. That fact is well know and is visible every hurricane season after every storm, but can you build your house to survive the big one?

After Hurricane Michael tore through Mexico Beach, one home was left still standing—and in remarkably great shape. Watch with video with Neil Cavuto on Fox as they interview the man who built this home, Dr. Lebron Lackey, and the Mexico Beach Miracle House, aka the ‘Sand Palace’.

Lessons learned, if you’re going to build on the coast, it’s worth it to go above and beyond. I think we’re in need of better construction codes and the best practices learned should be shared before the next big one blows through.

And here’s another great video of this story on the Weather Channel.
