The Storm-Ready Home

Chris Palmeri

Remember Bob Vila? The former host of This Old House kicked off a whole subdivision of remodeling shows on TV. He has a new show running on local tv channels across the country and a Web site, called appropriately enough BobVila.com. It's a got a pretty neat feature running right now. Bob chronicles the construction of a storm-proof home in Punta Gorda, Florida. The house stands on the site of one destroyed by Hurricane Charley last year. Beginning today (Friday, Oct. 21), a digital camera has been set up to take a photo every 5 seconds to see how the home stands up to Hurricane Wilma. Tune in here to check it out.
