ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: LaHouse: A Mitigation Model for Louisiana Homes   [open pdf - 37KB]

"The hurricanes, tropical storms, and floods that have struck Louisiana over the decades have destroyed thousands of homes. Better building techniques on display at Louisiana State University are meant to make that level of destruction a topic for the history books rather than the news. Sparked by the need to educate coastal Louisiana homeowners on how to build hurricane- and flood-resistant homes, the Agricultural Center at Louisiana State University (LSU) constructed the Louisiana Home and Landscape Resource Center, also known as LaHouse. A public-private partnership built with monetary gifts and donated materials, the house's construction began in 2004."
