Tests prove this design will not survive a hurricane hit. Why are you releasing the video? If one person buys this design based on this then you already have blood on your hands already

No such thing as Hurricane proof To many factors . Tornadoes and projectiles from neighborhood are usually over looked. Wind , rain , flooding, are the obvious concerns. Live in S FL Seen a lot of Hurricanes and a lot of damage Hurricane proof 🤔 If the eye wall of a storm passes through your neighborhood , there most likely will be some damage Baton down the hatches and pray for the best and get out of dodge. Crazy thing is that when a Hurricane is coming straight at us we have more concern about our stuff than we do our lives . Crazy creatures we humans Thoughts and prayers to all People impacted by a Hurricane Slowly but surely we can rebuild Part of living close to the oceans

I don't see this house standing up to a hurricane. Yes the bones may be there to make rebuilding but you sure wouldn't want to ride out a hurricane in this home which is the true test of the claim that it will survive in a hurricane.

So this guy took advantage of Sandy Victims. Why the shore is great is because it is a middle class beach. Now the rich are coming down from the city with their dumb fucking videos proclaiming how amazing their millions can spend. Fuck off. Also you are on the bay you so got nothing to worry about.
ubertser (1 month ago)
the key thing is the concrete, no hurricane can blow away concrete, people living on the coast need to rethink about building their house, you can't use wood anymore, puff puff and gone your house.
And what the price? Oh yeah above a million dollars

Good luck. I mean, this house versus 30 foot storm surge as well as 155MPH winds (cat 4) .... I will not take that bet. We should stop kidding ourselves and acknowledge that radical steps are needed to improve the environment and prevent further global warming (leading to stronger, more frequent hurricanes). I am really starting to think that this was some reverse psychology, straw man video.

It’s only helps with flooding not hurricanes. All the glasses would be destroyed within 5 mins and I’m not sure if the building would be standing after. It would be dried tho lol 😂

How is this house designed to survive a hurricane? You've shown how it can accommodate medium flooding, but that does not accommodate *a hurricane* in that wind is not presented as an obstacle. Perhaps this video is better named as a utility for those looking for flood mitigation.

ShyvulnerableTeddy (1 month ago)
I'm sorry but has anyone noticed that large glass windows. If anything comes flying at that you won't be protected much. So it might be flood proof but definetly is not hurricane proof.
tangogamma (1 month ago)
Smashed windows is actually not a big deal. The windows will smash bit usually there is a polycarbonate later in between that will still stay up. After the hurricane you can just replace the windows. The windows will break but there will be no penetration.
ShyvulnerableTeddy (1 month ago)
+Squidward Tortillini I wouldn't be writing a comment if I didn't search first. I looked and they can still smash if constant damage is applied to the window

Really B'S, get Ads Fund to Ads All Side Windows House for Hurricane !!!! Damned, how many grade Do All glass wimdows ? Hence facing direct impact on front side. If you said Build a Steal+cement Ship Pattern with minor Face to face direct hit/impact of hurricane force or windows grade 5~10 time stronger then 3 layer windows!!!,.. i Might be Impressed, But this Shit..... 😇😇 damned, Nowadays Storm and Hurricane Grade increased to 18 above. Man😎😎 CNN getting worst in Anything but it Allies Make Up News.

130mph winds and those windows are all gone. You'll have to board everything up. Even then the odds of the windows breaking from the pressure are still high.

I don't think a meager 2 feet above FEMA standards is anywhere near high enough. I'd shoot for 30 feet. These hurricanes are getting stronger every year, and I heard Houston's floods were as high as 20 feet.
Anthony B (1 month ago)
Flooding in the city was simply because it's so much rain in a little amount of time. 2 feet above FEMA is to protect against the seas storm surges. I think that will protect the house for the next decade but with sea levels rising and storms getting stronger. It wont work forever and we cant just building homes in the air like a skyscraper.

+Edgar Heredia isn't that the point of hinges and sliders
BAC (1 month ago)
Edgar Heredia sure, The protection comes from a special laminate in between the glass panels during manufacturing. Weight and force don’t usually equal because of the hinges designed for weight distribution. You can easily open a ridiculously heavy door with the proper hinges.

Beach houses NEED to be designed to survive hurricanes; the cost to reconstruct non- hurricane survivable houses is astronomical and results in higher insurance rates for everyone.
Art Curious (1 month ago)
Connie Crawford , everybody should petition their congressman or senators to mandate this because in the end everyone around the country ends up paying for it through tax funded disaster relief funds which are always in the billions. All homes should be concrete, 10 ft above sea level, with channels for water flow, and windows should be rated at 200mph.

+R.C. Staab also on SJ shore. We built 14' above flood and hurricane graded/bolted roof. Pass throughs in foundation, etc. But most honest part of designing my house and of your philosophy - "we can only do what we do and mother nature will take back what she will". There's a price to pay to have the best sunrise and sunset on earth with amazing memories and perfect beach days. Cheers
