I have a question about the Seaside area of St James. Are raised slabs required? Is there any flood risk in Seaside?

Looking at Brunswick County GIS flood map, Seaside is not in a flood zone.

Brunswick County GIS

Just from looking at the homes, the height of porches, no visible crawl space vents, etc ... I would say they are all built on slabs. Is a slab required? I can't say. A quick call to the sales center would probably let you know.

I believe I drove by Seaside during the parade of homes. The section I drove by were patio homes built on a slab, not a raised slab. The slab reduces the cost of construction and these houses are cheap by SJP standards. The lots were very small with little space between the homes and very close to the road. Some of my friends in SJP have a nickname for the area.
