Mike Holmes in New Orleans

Mike Holmes in New OrleansI’ve got my own paparazzo working down in New Orleans (AKA my husband, Bill) and he swung by the house Mike Holmes of “Holmes on Homes” is helping to build.

This project is part of the Brad Pitt-founded Make It Right Foundation.

You can see Mike on the right giving direction to his team members. A hot and humid July in New Orleans is the perfect environment for Mike’s signature undershirt-overalls outfit.

Notice how this house is being built on tall piers. Next time the levees fail (and that’s almost certain to happen), this house will get less flooded than one set on grade (ground level).
