The House

The Sure House started with a simple question: how can they can design a home which both reduces its energy use and adapts to the realities of changing, more extreme climate. The answer emerged as a new direction in storm resilient coastal housing. They merged the inherently efficient indoor/outdoor rooms and open floor plan of the quintessential 60’s style modern beach cottage with state of the art building science, the latest renewable energy technologies, and the fiber-composite materials repurposed from the boat building industry. The result is a building armored against extreme weather that uses 90% less energy than its conventional cousins, power itself through a hub for emergency power to the neighborhood… all of this package as a comfortable, beautiful beach house.
