An excellent tiny house for Louisiana
From Music and Cats: "On Wednesday afternoon, the Louisiana Recovery Authority and New Urbanist architect Andres Duany unveiled the Creole-style Katrina Cottage II in Chalmette, the seat of St. Bernard Parish, a low-income community east of New Orleans.
While FEMA spends roughly $75,000 to deliver and install a 23- to 28-foot temporary travel trailer for Katrina victims, one of these prefabricated cottages can be set up in days for less than $60,000."
There's a lot more. Kimberly adds: "Did you notice the guy in the FEMA jacket photographed at the press conference for this cottage? I wonder what was going through his head."
