Stone Showcase: Flooded Home 2011

Every Thursday we’ll showcase one of our customers with their shopping experience from beginning to end.


Once upon a time not so long ago, the Hauck family in Hummelstown lived in their home with peace, harmony, and tranquility.  This is their kitchen last year before things went awry!

Unfortunately for the Hauck family, along with so many other neighbors’ and friends’ homes and businesses in the Middletown, Hummelstown, Hershey, and surrounding area’s, the flood of September 2011 ravaged  and ransacked the area and it’s dwellings with no discourse.  For so many, the water just came like troughs dumping out of the sky with no warning that life below could all of the sudden be surrounded by depths of water unimaginable in such an instance.  At the Hauck residence the water was estimated to have been five foot ten inches on the first floor.  It actually penetrated the upper cabinets.

This depicts the force of the water.  Their refrigerator was found as you see it below.  Everything sits as the water left it.






Can you imagine the confusion, anxiety, and sense of being violated?  Well if you live near here chances are you knew someone looted and misplaced by the flood of September 2011.  The Hauck family was fortunate to have flood insurance, a good designer, friends, and family come to their assistance.  Next week we’ll show you the “after the flood” pictures of their kitchen with beautiful new cabinets, flooring and of course some classy looking granite counter-tops!
