Elkhart, IN (PRWEB) March 24, 2006
One of the best gifts you can give someone is hope, and that is what the team at Patriot Homes took to the Gulf Coast Initiative in Baton Rouge on January 31st.
Architect John Carricarte, [Lifestylist® Suzanne Felber] http://www.lifestylist.com and the [Patriot Homes] http://www.patriothomes.com team worked on designing homes that would fit in perfectly with the architecture and styles of the homes that previously graced the Gulf Coast regions and were ravaged by Hurricane Katrina. The Initiative Home was toured by dignitaries, media, developers, and consumers. All were amazed at what factory built housing can offer and were excited about the opportunities.
The Initiative Home was built at the Patriot facility in Waco, Texas and was complete with a full front porch wide enough for rockers or a porch swing, 9 ft. ceilings, transom windows, and an Evolution® kitchen. The innovative plan features open rooms, a 2 sided fireplace, maple cabinets and a built-in entertainment unit. The sunny, inviting interior became a favorite place for all to meet and discuss the rebuilding opportunities.
The team has also designed 5 innovative homes that will be shown at the South Central Housing Show in Tunica, Mississippi March 29th – 31st. The show will be an excellent showcase to show city leaders and developers how factory built housing can be used to rebuild their communities quickly and economically.
Patriot Homes has a 34 year long reputation of being a family owned business that builds homes for other families. Sam Weidner Sr., President of Patriot Homes is proud of how his company has always been a leader in the housing industry, and is excited about the opportunities that are now in front of us.
