Home details:

Each home: 10' wide by 20' long...200 sq.ft.
PS: Single homes can be modified & be constructed side by side to measure (20’ X 20”… 400sq.ft ) to house large families

Building details:
Our panel is used on the floor (no need to pour a cement pad) as well as walls, dividing interior walls and roof.

Advantages of the homes:
1) Earthquake proof- (they'll float with the ground)
2) Lightweight yet 20X stronger than conventional building methods
3) Easy to erect: no special tools, equipment or skill
4) We can easily train Haitians to build these homes, thereby creating employment, we ship homes ready to assemble.
5) Mould, Fire and Water resistant... these homes will withstand anything thrown at them.
6) Leak free roof: never any need to replace. Our roofs will last indefinitely without any maintenance.
7) Hurricane proof: Unlike conventional hurricane clips that affix a small portion of the roof to the wall, our homes have full length, 16 gauge steel affixing the roof to the walls on both sides of the wall, both top and bottom.
Compression tested to 9 tons per 10 feet of panel.
8) Our homes are lightweight, 3 pounds per sq.ft. Concrete 40lbs, wood 20lbs... 2 men can easily erect a home using a step ladder in just one day.
9) Re-usable: If for whatever reason the panels come down they can be re-used again and again, unlike cement, wood etc that is damaged once and then is not reusable.
10) Energy efficient: Our panels are "green approved" no harmful CFC's are used, environmentally friendly ingredients only. Our homes heat and COOL for a fraction of the cost that conventional homes require. They are designed to keep the heat out cool in.
11) Easy to work with: any door, window or opening can easily be added to the building at any location and at any time.
