Sheepshead Bay Bungalows
Sheepshead Bay, New York
The reconstruction of these Sheepshead Bay Bungalows was part of the Build It Back Program after the destruction of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. All the houses were elevated to the same height, 12 feet above the ground, to prevent future flooding during storms. While some of the original bungalows were salvageable, new houses were replaced by a two-level dwelling that sponsored cathedral height ceilings for the living area.
