Hurricanes and flooding are common in Florida and many parts of the world. Some homes are already built on stilts, but often not high enough to protect the home from a flood.
This system would provide for a home to raise up on telescoping stilts when the flood waters reached a certain level, protecting the home and occupants from flood damage and displacement.
