Hey all There are a ton of great pre-fab homes on the market today. Two firms that I have recently had the opportunity to interact with are Resolution 4 Architecture and Rocio Romero. Both design firms have explored the notions of creating beautiful functional spaces that can be modular, durable, and unique. Romero's designs are really affordable. Cohousing could definitely use a modern, affordable facelift into modular. re4a.com rocioromero.com Peace, duane :: Duane Martinez Assistant Project Manager Wonderland Hill Develpment Co. 4676.Broadway Boulder.CO.80304 303.449.3232.ext.207 duane [at] whdc.com -----Original Message----- From: Dahako [at] aol.com [mailto:Dahako [at] aol.com] Sent: Thursday, June 23, 2005 5:46 AM To: cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org Subject: Re: [C-L]_ Cohousing Caravan Park Hi all- Not trailers please - I work in disaster recovery - including dealing with the aftermath of the hurricanes in Florida and all along the East Coast last year. No plain trailers. How about single or double-wide manufactured housing on a permanent foundation with the wheels removed and with HUD-standard roof tie-downs? Such housing can be affordable but a far better investment and more disaster-resistant than trailers. Not to mention easier to get financing and permits for. I think you could use an extra doublewide for a common house. Might even be able to get a grant from FEMA mitigation funds for a safe room for a disaster shelter that could also be used for other community functions.
