Residents of the United States who do not live in the parts of this country that are regularly decimated by tornadic activity, watch the likes of CNN and MSNBC horrified by what they see, while at the same time wondering why people are victims of nature-led teardowns of their homes, yet they rebuild almost as quickly. Home is, however, where the heart is and so it makes sense that a housing company is helping those people who are regularly affected by these natural disasters, quick manufacture of environmentally-friendly homes.

Green Structure Homes (GSH) of Alabama provides environmentally-friendly, modular homes. One of the most important features of all of the homes they manufacture is that they provide hurricane-rated structural integrity meaning these homes will tolerate winds of up to 130 MPH. These homes are also mold, pest and mildew resistant. Barbara Stokes, CEO of GSH, provides disaster-relief construction of modular homes to homeowners in this part of the country where loss of one’s home to the forces of nature is always a consideration, and for many a reality.
Recently her company directly benefited from a near-$30 million FEMA contract award to GSH allowing for the creation of jobs across 8 states where rebuild remains only a storm away. The company was founded on a solution-based business model designed to provide disaster-relief housing solutions in a timely manner. This company, founded in 2008, has helped thousands, who have found themselves in the throes of home damage, and/or total loss, to have a home again. GSH provides not just any home, but one that if the benefactors of their work weather yet another destructive storm, that their home has a greater chance of staying intact.
It has been nearly a decade that GSH has been providing their services to this part of the country that is regularly torn apart by hurricanes and tornadoes. The homes they make are environmentally friendly and are energy efficient. Once the home is delivered to a site, erection of the home can take place in just days. These homes are manufactured in a warehouse, off-site, and therefore don’t require local resources to complete the manufacturing process. This is of particular importance when the weather widely affects all facets of a community. It is nice to know that a new home has already been made, in a warehouse, and can be delivered and constructed, within days, not contingent on local resources or manpower at all. I am sure a lot of people take solace in the good work Barbara Stokes is doing with GSH. Learn more about Barbara Stokes at Crunchbase.
