I still can't believe it, but nearly one year ago, my entire home was swallowed up. It was a normal day like any other day, and suddenly the foundation of the home started sinking. My husband and I grabbed our two kids and ran outside. We watched in awe as the home slowly started sinking down like there was some kind of portal underneath it. Our house had collapsed, from the sinking, and although we were able to salvage some items, we couldn't salvage the house. We found an apartment to live in at www.palmsatpeccoleranch.com while we thought about whether we wanted another home.
My family and I were still traumatized by the experience, and weren't really in a financial situation to buy a home, along with all of the furnishings for it, which is why we went with the apartment. For a while, my kids were afraid to go to school because they were worried about the school sinking into the ground like our house did. Something like a sinking house is a pretty rare occurrence where we live, especially when you consider that many of the homes have been there for years without showing any sign of sinking or foundation problems.
After living in the apartments for many months, we came to a decision that we would rather live there than buy a new home. While living in a home is something that we would miss, we all felt more secure being in an apartment complex, where there was less of a chance of the entire building sinking. In a way, the apartment was more of an upgrade to our old home, because it has a more space in each room and a modern look, and there is access to a pool, which the kids love to hop into after they finish their homework.
