Forbes: Elevated and Raised Homes

Harkers Island House, Lake St. Clair, Michigan

Why Elevated: Flood protection, better views

This impressive 6,000-square-foot elevated single-family home sits on a pedestal and a concrete block foundation intended to protect the occupants from occasional flooding of the island. Although not one of the Great Lakes, this mostly shallow lake is part of an extensive delta and no stranger to harsh seasonal weather conditions. The home features five bedrooms and three and a half baths with easy lake access for boating and other recreational pleasures.
