    What's better than a house at the beach? A house on an island that is mainly a US National Park. This Deltec Windsor model and adjacent 2-story guest house are perched on a plateau high in the sky, offering panoramic views of white beaches, emerald cays, and turquoise waters. Of course, the fact that Deltec homes are hurricane resistant adds another note of tranquility to this paradise!

    Our homeowner says, "We have been through three hurricanes which were all direct hits: Ivan, Katrina, and Dennis. The only damage we had were a few lost shingles on one side of the house. That was it.” Palmer D., – Gulf Shores, AL 2070 Windsor on pilings ‪#‎hurricaneproof‬ ‪#‎prefab‬ ‪#‎madeinamerica‬

    Elevate yourself. Areas along coastlines are frequently subject to high water levels and wave action from strong storms and hurricanes, compromising conventional building foundations. A better idea is to build on pilings. A Deltec on pilings is the perfect solution for your beach home, as is proven by our unmatched, perfect record against hurricanes.

    A Coastal Beauty. We find this three-level Deltec, a Windsor model, to be pretty amazing, and not just because of the pneumatic vacuum elevator—although, really, how cool is that! Builder Jim Schneider is particularly proud of the energy rating achieved on this house: they’ve achieved a HERS rating of 49, meaning this house is 51% more efficient than a house built to code!

    When Hurricane Sandy slammed the New Jersey coast, the Guerins witnessed the true hurricane resistance of their Deltec: Many nearby properties, even those ‘protected’ behind a bulkhead, suffered significant water and wind destruction. Indeed, the bulkheads themselves were destroyed so as to be useless. The Deltec? The only damage to this family's home was a single turned-up shingle on the roof. blog.deltechomes.... #roundhouse #sandy
