Nine years ago I met a Florida Certified General Contractor named Del Steinacker Sr. He has built major subdivisions, condominiums and hotel projects throughout the South East US and the Caribbean. He has spent many years in engineering study and re-construction of major projects after many of nature’s catastrophic devastations.
However his most dynamic achievement deals with the little-known realm of chemically induced concrete. Del has been involved since 1957 with experimentation, design and development of various concrete and re-enforcement materials for use in home building. Results have been remarkable. For example he has invented a light-weight, thin-walled product that exhibits an unprecedented strength and energy efficiency and is inexpensive to build.
During this time he has patented a concrete house and developed a pre-cast modular footer. Using these materials and methodologies the time to construct was reduced by 65% and the cost reduced by more than 30%.
In addition with over a million dollars of personal and corporate investments he utilized some of the same technology to develop an above ground hurricane / tornado shelter cottage, (www.hurricanecottages.com)
Now the excitement continues! For the last four years he and his team have worked diligently and developed a manufacturing process that will produce the ideal shelter for the affordable housing market at less than $99.00 per square foot.
With the expertise of concrete technology and a unique production methodology this storm shelter withstands massive winds and is hurricane proof, flood proof, fire proof and termite proof. And, with a specific option package becomes a live in facility.
His work is complete and now is the time to bring this life saving storm shelter to the public. If you are interested in purchasing or would like to invest in his endeavor please contact www.hurricanecottages.com.
It is difficult to change tradition. Since the early 1900’s the home building industry has functioned virtually the same way. Certainly there have been improvements in techniques and materials all resulting in a better building but nothing revolutionary.
THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY!
