Lay em up! Installing DesignStone`s small-form precast concrete panels. DesignStone enables residential housing & light commercial buildings to be constructed in a manner similar to a traditional light framed building, yet have the same load carrying and resisting capability as a full masonry or concrete facade system. #designstoneresilientbuildingtechnology #designstonewallingsystem #designstone #buildingmaterials #concretecladding #steelframing #concretehome #buildingproducts #newproducts #wallsystem #construction #generalcontractor #builder #concretehouse #structuralengineering #concretebuilding #buildbetter #innovation #innovativebuilding #concreteconstruction #concretewall #hurricaneproof

Designing for Disruption... I read an article yesterday in Architect magazine about designing & building with resilience in mind. It’s a bit of bureaucratic fluff, summing up the hundreds of billions of dollars in damage from hurricanes, floods, winter storms, wild fires, & how building codes and infrastructure were not up to the job, how we need to do better. The best part of the article, however, was, “we do not have the luxury of ‘disaster amnesia’... It is time to reevaluate where and how we build on the lessons learned from previous disasters.” . . Preach it! The thing is... building codes are already pretty tough, certainly in coastal Texas and south Florida. And while we can design for wind pretty easily, it’s water that does the most damage. After Katrina, we started doing things like putting a break in the 1st floor wall covering at 4.0’, and running electric in the top 4’ of the wall, so when the waters came in, there was less damage and the lower half of the wall could be easily repaired. In other words, many municipalities have accepted that flooding will occur, so “here are some things to do to minimize the damage”. . . Other areas have raised their minimum elevation requirements for homes in risk zones. For example, all of the OBX is classified as a Special Flood Hazard Area, with varying degrees of risk within the area, from X, AE, and VE being the highest. Elevation requirements keep going up as storms, storm surge, and flooding get more severe. Last year I took pictures of literally dozens of homes being raised and put on higher piers. . . Insurance rates go up as well. Several major insurers have pulled out of South Florida, and from where you can build to how to build to insuring what you build — living in paradise is becominging more expensive. For those of us who dream of warmer climes, it can almost seem like the dream is slipping further away. . . We’ve come up with a solution that is both cost effective and storm resistant, that is affordable to acquire, easy to locate, and we are working with insurers to make them not just insurable — but the preferred housing solution in paradise. . . Our homes are designed for life, anywhere.

I wrote a bit of a rant yesterday about why it was ok for a travel trailer to be $90k but not a well designed & well built tiny house, & posted it in the Tiny House Life Facebook group. (I left out any mention of using a container as the core because my point was more about the cost acceptance of good design/great craftsmanship, rather than storm resistance & versatility.) I had been seeing a lot of complaining about the cost of tiny houses, & at best - people didn’t understand why there were $90k tiny houses when there were also $30k tiny houses, but at worst — people seemed to want the $90k tiny house to be $30k. . My point was essentially that there is a place for the $30k house, the $60k house, & the $90 or $120k house — as long as the buyer is honest about what they value most, & the seller is honest about what the buyer is getting. If the buyer values low upfront cost over energy efficiency &/or quality material or craftsmanship — thats fine! There are builders who can meet that need. If the buyer values character & architectural detail, exquisite craftsmanship & high end products & finishes, that’s fine too. There are builders who can meet that demand too. What is not fine is to decry the $90k house that is worth every penny just because you value low upfront cost more than anything else. . It was a windy week in the Caribbean, & here in the Midwest/Great Lakes region too. Even though we’re more than 2 months out of hurricane season, when the wind whips up its a good reminder that from the Great Lakes to the Atlantic seaboard to the Caribbean Sea, Mother Nature is to be respected. “Hope” is not a good method of being prepared for the storms that WILL come. . Everybody has a budget, but not everybody values the same things equally. If you value low cost & lite-weight for towing and greater mobility, get the travel trailer & travel. If you don’t value mobility & want something more conventional & tied to the land, buy the little beach shack & start living. But if you want the most storm resistant house available, that also happens to be unmatched in versatility because it can be be mobile or it can be tied down — or both—insist on a Resilient home.
