One such company is Green Structure Homes, a disaster-relief contractor from Alabama. Using state-of-the art design and manufacture techniques to create easily assembled modular homes. The homes can be assembled in a matter of days, and do not require a lot of hands in their constructions. They are designed to be both stationary and mobile, sport a full kitchen, bathroom, sprinklers, and can have a wood or steel frame. The idea behind these modular homes is that they can provide speedy housing in areas where homes were lost. Instead of cramming survivors into relief areas like school cafeterias, or sports arenas, they can be given their own private home. The ready-made housing can also be used for relief-workers. Under the leadership of Barbara Stokes the company has enjoyed much success since its founding. Now with a $28.5 million dollar contract from FEMA, the company is preparing to expand.
