'We built it to survive the big one': Owners of the only Florida home still standing on a stretch of beach after Hurricane Michael ravaged the Panhandle say they went above and beyond the building codes

Florida home that survived Hurricane Michael was built to survive the big one

The owners of the only home still standing on a stretch of a Florida beach after Hurricane Michael tore through say they built it to survive the 'big one'. Dr Lebron Lackey and his uncle Russell King built the vacation home known as Sand Palace last year at Mexico Beach where the Category 4 hurricane made landfall with 155mph winds last week. Remarkable aerial photos that emerged after the hurricane show the home still standing, while neighboring properties were reduced to rubble or completely swept away by storm surge. The home, which was built to withstand winds of up to 250 mph, has 40-foot pilings buried into the ground and extra elevation to allow for storm surge. They also added 1-foot thick concrete walls and steel cables to keep the roof attached. Lackey, who was at his home in Tennessee when the storm hit, said he was nauseous watching footage from a surveillance camera set up at the home as the hurricane bore down on the coast.
