A completely inept federal government agency? Priceless.
Despite being only 308 Square feet, the Katrina Cottage has made a big splash recently. One reason is because it costs more than $15,000 dollars less to build than a standard FEMA trailer. Yet, FEMA claims their hands are tied and have refused to purchase the cottages and all of its adaptability for Hurricane victims. The real kicker is that the cottages have been built to withstand hurricane force winds and are able to be expanded quite easily....something that is rather important to the thousands of survivors who are just trying to get semblance of normalcy back in their lives. Would you want to rebuild a neighborhood with Katrina Cottages, or with trailers? Wake up FEMA.
