This house was one of many homes in the beach front community to be damaged by Hurricane Sandy. The homeowner saw the rebuild as an opportunity to improve the insulation, air sealing, and waterproofing with the goal of reducing energy consumption and minimizing the potential for future water damage. This design approach stands as an example of what can be achieved during the rebuilding process in a community that is particularly susceptible to the effects of climate change.
