Self-leveling rotary laser and the smaller excavator  They continued and dug the rest of the footers.

Park Model next to a large home which is under construction near the Mississippi Coast waterfront. There has been push-back from some local governments and neighborhoods. They don’t want these small houses to stay in their communities. Local officials also made the argument that the small Cottages (if retained for permanent housing) would do less to restore the tax base than larger, more expensive homes that existed before Katrina or new, high‐rise condo or apartment buildings that could now be built.

Elevated home in Waveland, Mississippi Can these cottages be put on stilts? Maybe with a crane? This looks wider than a Mississippi Cottage. Structural Design The final specifications for Park Models and Cottages met or exceeded the requirements of the HUD code and the International Residential Code in several areas that directly affect the strength of the units. The units were designed to resist the more stringent IRC standard of 150 miles per hour wind speed. Under the IRC, there are two standards for the coastal areas of Mississippi, and the selection of the 150 miles per hour standard allowed the MEMA units to be placed anywhere temporarily.

Park Model Exterior The board and batten or lap siding doesn’t just look charming. It is fiber cement siding, (like Hardie Board). Fiber cement siding is durable, long-lasting and low-maintenance. It is more impact, wind and insect resistant than wood or vinyl. Fiber cement doesn’t absorb moisture, so paint lasts significantly longer. Everything in the design is to make these houses safer in a storm. Katrina Cottages, Mississippi Cottages and MAHP Park Models Park Models, Flat Roof, Expensive Houses

Mississippi Cottage In June 2006, Congress allocated $400 million to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to develop alternative designs and prototypes for disaster housing. FEMA offered the opportunity to apply for Alternative Housing Pilot Program (AHPP) funding to the States of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, the five states most severely affected by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma. FEMA’s particular interest was to identify unit types that would be suitable when a long recovery period is anticipated following a major disaster. Grantees were given significant latitude in both the design of units and how the program would be administered. Three states and one local grantee were awarded funds. Texas, Shotgun House
