When I returned to Lakeshore after the storm and began visiting each of our church members homes, I found the Shiyou’s house in shambles. The storm surge topped the roof, shifted the structure from its foundation, and left it beyond repair. Heavy equipment finished the job and brought the house down to the slab.
The detached car port survived, so we enclosed the walls, ran plumbing for a bathroom and small kitchenette, and turned it into a 400 sq foot apartment. This week a team from South Carolina will pick up where last week’s Pennsylvania team left off and franticly try to make the tiny dwelling place inhabitable by Christmas.
