These houses are on Wildair Drive. Again, we have a rebuilt house on the left, a gutted but empty house next to it, a gutted but overgrown house next to it, a house that has been elevated on concrete pilings next to it, and another elevated house next to it. \r\n\r\nHouses elevated a few feet above street level are a common sight throughout Orleans Parish. However, houses on concrete pilings were unheard of until after the storm. They still remain uncommon, although many homeowners are now elevating existing houses or building new houses on pilings. \r\n\r\nThis image is part of a series titled Four Years After.
