The Cusabo Island home is a fire, water and wind resistant prefabricated house that is also completely self-sufficient.

Because it was built on one of South Carolina's 'barrier islands,' which are frequented by major storms and occasional brush fires, the Cusabo Island home was built with hardcore features such as nearly impenetrable storm doors, steel walls and steel roof panels. The house is more or less isolated; it has photovoltaic panels, a wind turbine and sophisticated rainwater-catching systems to keep it completely off-grid.
