ORTLEY BEACH - An Ortley Beach resident will be able to live in his newly constructed home just shy of Superstorm Sandy’s one-year mark.

Lou Giammarino will be able to live in his four-bedroom house on Sixth Avenue by Oct. 15. The retired contractor's home was damaged by flooding during Sandy and had to be demolished.

"Emotionally, all that we all went through is an afterthought because you look forward to better days and the better days are here now," said Giammarino.

In all, the construction will have taken 90 days to complete.
