For Houston homeowners, tough decisions on whether to rebuildBy Ernest Scheyder HOUSTON (Reuters) – It took just hours for Tropical Storm Harvey’s floodwaters to destroy hand-hewn cabinets and wood floors that Chad Wilson spent more than 18 months to build and install in his Houston home. Wilson’s first thought after the waters receded and he girded himself for a Herculean cleanup is one echoing across the storm-weary Texas coast: should he rebuild? With most of the home, which had never before flooded, now gutted, Wilson says he will only remain if he can raise its level above the ground by up to six feet (two meters).
