Gold-standard hurricane-proofing

New, 1 comment

The simple, sturdy Prima Casa at 3360 William Avenue in Coconut Grove won the gold for its "hurricane fortified" design from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety. The roof and walls are poured concrete, tied together at the joints, and the yard is full of hearty native plants, which IIBHS says will keep insurance costs down. [South Florida Business Journal]
