Crooked Creek Prototype Home

CCHRC designed a prototype house for Crooked Creek, a small Kuskokwim village, after flooding destroyed 10 homes in May 2011. The unique design used a single truss system and emphasized energy efficient, affordable, flexible, and quick construction in a remote location. The homes were replaced in the span of four months with the help of many organizations and volunteers. CCHRC is working with the Alaska Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to develop housing concepts for each region in Alaska that are appropriate for the environment and can be rapidly deployed in an emergency.
