Session to discuss elevating a home


A presentation on “The Process and Benefits of Elevating Your Home” to save it from rising sea levels will be given at Jones River Landing, 55 Landing Rd., at 7 p.m. next Thursday. David Ray of Hull-based Nantasket Survey Engineering will focus on what homeowners need to know before deciding to elevate a house, how high to go, and the benefits of doing so. The program will include a video of an interview with a homeowner who went through the process. The event is part of a series of climate-change programs being presented on Thursdays this winter. A March 13 program will discuss the vulnerability of local salt marshes to rising sea levels, and March 27 will feature an open discussion about other steps that coastal homeowners can take to adapt to sea-level rise and climate change.
