One correction.

FEMA allows for a home to be 6 inches BELOW the BFE and still be at the required BFE.

Example: The BFE is 12ft. The lowest level of the home is 11ft, 6 inches.

All BFEs are expressed in feet, so the BFE for the home can be rounded UP to the nearest BFE...... 12ft to conform.

If the home is at 11ft, 5 inches or lower the BFE can not be rounded up.
