Originally, the plan was to lift the house from its foundation and build a new, higher one, but after consulting several local agencies, the Bugbees have decided the best course of action is to leave the house on its current foundation and invest their resources into renovating the interior of their home. The water destroyed their kitchen cabinets and appliances, flooring throughout the house, drywall and insulation. Some electrical work will also be completed while the walls are open. Unfortunately, insurance will not cover these expenses.
Herbie and several others have volunteered to rebuild the home. The money raised through this campaign will cover expenses for replacing kitchen cabinets and appliances, new floorinng throughout the home, new electrical, insulationa and drywall, as well as any needed inspections.
There will undoubtedly be additional costs down the road, such as building materials and replacing lost household items, but the current goal will enable the team of volunteers to get started on rebuilding the house. This is the critical first step to helping the Bugbee family begin rebuilding their life. Thank you for joining us as we walk along side the Bugbees during this most difficult time.
