As Typhoon Neoguri smashes into Okinawa and Japan, we’re reminded yet again that strong, durable, weather resistant housing is a requirement if families are to remain safe.
As we participate in ISBU (Shipping container) residential, industrial and commercial builds all over the planet, I am STILL amazed that the solution to some of the problems caused by heavy weather is overlooked.
In places like North Dakota, Montana, the Bering Sea and even (gasp!) Canada… 🙂
