After 3 Years, Breezy Home Gets Help

Three years after Hurricane Sandy, Diane Hellriegel’s Breezy Point home on Oceanside Avenue has still not been touched. She took her dogs to Alabama and moved to Long Island. Hellriegel, who did not have flood insurance, fought to have her home rebuilt. Now that’s about to happen.

Demolition Begins on Breezy Home

On August 11, 2016, demolition began on Diane Hellriegel's Breezy Point storm damaged home to make way for a new residence. Built to withstand future fierce weather events, PCA, FLASH, and other project partners will incorporate insulated concrete form (ICF) wall and a variety of innovative products including a whole home generator and new roof system. The home will have a solid concrete foundation and elevated living space to resist flooding and high winds, while boosting energy efficiency and fire resistance. The project shifts into the building phase this fall.
