How high? Thinking through a successful house raising project
A workshop facilitated by Sasha Mainsbridge
Raising houses above likely future flood levels preserves buildings and minimises disruption to the lives of people that live in them. Join one of our workshops to learn more about house raising and what you need to think about before you start your project.
These workshops are designed to assist anyone considering raising their home – old or new – to protect themselves from future floods. Whether you’ve qualified for government assistance, or you’re just taking the initiative, our goal is to help you think through the critical issues in order to make your project truly successful. Which, in our book, means both lifting your home to a safer level and carefully considering the challenges and opportunities this creates.
