FEMA-funded home designed by Jonathan Zimmerman

Jonathan Zimmerman

The dome-shaped home, made of steel-reinforced concrete and able to withstand winds up to 300 mph and a direct hit from a hurricane, was built with the help of a $245,000 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which certified the design as having met its lofty weather-resistant standards.

Television crews from The Travel Channel’s “Amazing Vacation Home” series were in the building the night Hurricane Ivan hit. You can read more of the amazing story on Jonathan Zimmerman’s website.
