Thank you for your posting. This seems like a very interisting prospect in relation to living in the Greek Islands. I have sent a brochure to you nominated e mail address on this site however I would like to respond to some of your points and queries raised in you posting.
1) Information and pricing on all products.
This housing system although standard is customised to suit the particular needs of the country that it is going to. Thus the pricing is adjusted accordingly. It is also adjusted depending on the level of fitout required. The brochure will give you quite detailed information on how the system works. The pricing also depends on quantity required. As I have previously mentioned this system is generally setup for high volume supply.
2) Is the housing earthquake proof?
By the very design and materials used in the system the house is about a earthquake proof as you can get without the need for major changes to footing systems.
3) Is the house Hurricane proof?
If required the structural design is able to be raised to include for hurricane rating. This will include a different holding down system and larget concrete footings. The concrete supply is not part of the standard package although the holding down system is.
4) Is the house fireproof?
The exterior of the house is made of colorbond steel and thus although non flammable does not have an actual fire rating.
5) Is the house tolerant to hot conditions?
The house system is available with many different insulation ratings as part of the customised kit.
I would be very happy to answer any other questins that you might have once you have a read of the brochure.
