Katrina Cottages Available at Lowe's


We have always liked Marianne Cusato's Katrina Cottage design, a small, attractive and affordable alternative for New Orleans. Now the designer has made a deal with Lowes to sell packages of plans and materials in four different designs ranging from 544 to 936 square feet, that will cost from $ 25,000 to $ 50,000. Good for floods (no drywall) and winds up to 140 miles an hour. Selling at Lowes may not sound like a big deal, but in fact is a huge step in the prefab business- a major mainstream retailer selling architect-designed, well resolved solutions at reasonable prices. Marianne says "Design makes a difference"- So do we.::Wall Street Journal
