description  
This prefabricated single-family house was designed in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity to meet the goals of improving the energy performance and design quality of Habitat homes. It was erected in Greensboro, Alabama. Its composition features two modular units joined by a breezeway, which draws its inspiration from the traditional, vernacular “dog-trot” house type with rooms arranged to either side of a central open hallway. The Breeze House achieves modern, low-cost, energy-efficient housing that can be mass-produced. The tall screened hall rises above the slanted roofs to either side in order to catch prevailing winds and promote cross ventilation that cools the interior spaces.

The house looks great. Have you thought about a standing seam roof? We have done this in Ocean Springs, MS. We run a 1 3/4 24ga. standing seam. If installed right, it will look good and stand up to the high wind better than R-lock panels. If I could help in any way contact me.
