New Safe Home For The US

He says his techniques could revolutionize the way homes are built around the world. The house may look like any old house construction from the street >> READ MORE HERE
GULF SHORES, Alabama - In a neighborhood off Fort Morgan Road, a house is going up unlike anything built in the United States.
"For about a hundred years we've built the same way, with wood. We haven't really changed much except now we're using softer, smaller wood," says builder Riji Dixon with Defender Technologies.
Here, concrete panels make up the walls. Rebar reaches up from the foundation and criss crosses inside each panel.
"It's new, It's what we need especially for homes built in hurricane prone, tornado prone areas," says company vice president George Williams.
All of the walls of this house will be up by Friday and then they will be able to do the thing that makes this house storm proof.
"This home will weigh about 500 thousand pounds with concrete walls ten feet in the air that are tied together in corners so it won't flex or twist and allow the roof to blow off," says Dixon. Dixon knows what the folks in Oklahoma are going through. "I lived through that you always remember that. I wish we had that technology over there right now but we didn't. We do now."
Houses like this have been built throughout the world and tested by storms and earthquakes.
"You're going to be safe when the storm comes," says Dixon.
A different way to build that could save lives. So, how much does a house like this costs? Dixon says it's comparable to standard built home but with a 30 to 40 percent savings on heating and cooling costs and a huge insurance advantage. Dixon is looking for other builders who want to learn how to use the technology to build stronger, safer homes along the Gulf Coast.
