Prefab Home Suitable for Hurricane Prone Areas
The homes are made from sustainably-sourced wood, and customers can also opt to fit them with green tech such as a green roof or a vertical garden. A rooftop mounted solar PV array is also a possible upgrade, which, coupled with a battery array, can take this home off-the-grid completely. The rainwater collection system consists of an underground tank into which rainwater is channeled via a gutter. Customers can also opt for geothermal heating, and air-conditioning. These homes are also suitable for flood prone areas, since they can easily be raised on stilts.
