Instead of delivering an assortment of articles,  we've decided to take a look at various projects to inspire you. This week we are featuring projects involving a zoo, college, and two residential homes.

The McCaskey home, surrounded by countless others with obvious signs of damage, represents a glimmer of hope in reducing the blow in the face of extreme weather. Additionally, the devastating events of that day in Washington can teach us the ways in which our homes may offer fortress-like protection during an environmental trauma of such magnitude. Of course there is no way to completely tornado-proof our homes, but, as the McCaskey home demonstrates, some measures can be taken to prepare them for extreme weather conditions.
