Blu Homes to Build Hurricane-Proof Homes

A leading provider of prefab homes Blu Homes reveals the story of Warren and Sally Baker. Looking to build a new home that would gracefully transition into a full-time, eco-friendly residence, Warren and Sally Baker turned to Blu Homes.

The Bakers will build a one-story, green home with Blu Homes that is strong enough to weather storms and hurricanes that are common to coastal regions. The Baker home will be Blu Homes’ first project built on Shelter Island.

“When we were searching for hurricane-proof home designs, there were three builders that came up, including Blu Homes,” explained homeowner Sally Baker.

Channeling the style of their original home, the Bakers’ new home will feature a combination of Blu’s Balance and Origin models with a Breezespace to connect the two models.

The new home will incorporate many of the same elements as their previous home, including natural wood and expansive glass windows.

The home will also include a workshop, sculpture studio, and pool, among other signature touches that reflect the Bakers’ personal interests.

However, the one-story living plan, as well as the low maintenance and upkeep requirements of a Blu home, will make the Bakers’ new home ideal for the coming years, says the company.

Built by skilled craftspeople in its 250,000 square-foot factory in Vallejo, CA using advanced building technology, Blu homes are folded for quick and cost-effective transportation and setting on site.

While experts say it could take over a decade to completely rebuild after Sandy, once delivered, Blu homes are installed on-site in as little as one day and completed in typically four to six weeks, says the company.

Blu Homes, Inc. is a leading provider of premium prefab homes in North America.
