Noah's ark? Hurricane Georges in 1998 completely submerged Innerarity Island but the Streckel's flood-thru design on the first floor garage prevented substantial damage.

The Streckel residence

I built this sound front home for the Streckels in 1998. Over the years it has endured many hurricanes and the ground floor garage has flooded twice. The flood-thru design of the garage allows flood waters to pass through front and rear garage walls without damaging the structural walls. There are no expensive blow out walls to repair after a flood. Just replace the garage doors. The Steckels, who worked for a Ford dealership in Michigan came down here to retire in sunny Florida. At least that was the plan. They couldn't sit still for long so they decided to open a small used car lot just to keep occupied. Their little project has turned into Frontier Motors, the best place to find a late model used car in Pensacola.
