"We're excited to introduce this innovative construction process to the nation." - Steve Diaz, CEO Rapid Home Solutions
Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Rapid Home Solutions (RHS) announced today the immediate launching of its $1.75 million Indiegogo campaign. The central Florida based emerging sustainable housing manufacturer has launched the campaign in efforts to bring forward a new patent pending construction process which allows for the manufacturing and assembly of single family homes designed to withstand category-5 hurricane winds (approximately 180 miles per hour), at the rate of one 3 bedroom 2 bath 1,600 square foot home - per 24 hour period - from foundation to certificate of occupancy. These houses are insect and fire resistant as well as water proof up to the window sills or to the top wall sill plate with optional water proof doors and windows. Due to its unique rapid construction method, the cost of construction is significantly reduced by more than 60% and its construction time is reduced by more than 95% over conventional stick-built construction methods, with these savings being passed on to the home buyer. There are 11 customizable home models listed on the company’s website for viewing with an additional 26 models currently undergoing design study for systems and process compatibility.
The capacity to rapidly construct communities with Cat-5 hurricane wind resistant structures also makes this a perfect disaster relief application. RHS will initially offer these homes domestically in the affordable housing market; but plan to provide domestic aid to disaster-stricken areas in need of emergency housing and eventually, in the interest of domestic job creation, enter the international disaster relief market - should all domestic needs be met first.
RHS has also launched two progressive programs. Their “Partnership In Homeownership" Program allows a fast-track path from renter to homeowner for citizens that lack either sufficient credit and/or the financial resources to meet all the down payment and closing cost requirements typically associated with purchasing a home. The program will provide all the services necessary to repair credit, establish new credit lines and accumulate the funds required at no upfront cost to the buyer while allowing the home buyer to take occupancy in their home. The "Partnership In Homeownership PLUS" Program targets current federal entitlement recipients (currently receiving welfare) who are seeking homeownership and have the same negative issues listed in the standard program, but also lack full time employment. The Plus program adds an employment package with RHS designed to sustain the family's homeownership and financial stability in the middle class sector of our national economy. The company plans to offer 1000 of the "Partnership In Homeownership" Program packages, of which 300 will be the "PLUS" variation of the program. America's military veterans that meet within the "PLUS" program’s qualifying guidelines will receive first consideration.
“We're excited to introduce this innovative construction process to the nation,” said Steve Diaz, CEO of Rapid Home Solutions. “Our proposed rapid construction method and techniques, as well as the proprietary rapid foundation and assembly procedures will dramatically reduce the overall cost of construction and likewise our price point, which will allow us to offer these homes to the average American family seeking homeownership. The rapid construction capacity, coupled with either our 'Partnership In Homeownership' or the 'Partnership In Homeownership PLUS' Programs will allow us to offer homeownership to American citizens that up until now, have never been able, or given the chance to become homeowners. Through the "PLUS" program, we intend to fill the first 300 full time positions with such families and calibrate their home package with their employment compensation package. The implication and potential impact of these programs are far reaching to say the least. Imagine how many lives could be positively affected when a family is able to acquire homeownership and sustain itself? How many families could have bounced back so much easier from any of the disasters that have stricken so many areas of our nation if they had access to an RHS home before or after an event.”
The RHS Indiegogo campaign has set a goal of $1,750,000 to be used for the development of a manufacturing facility.
