The ADAptable GroHome is a flexible building system that is particularly cost effective in creating ADA compliant homes for disabled veterans while also enabling vets to grow the home as their family or financial situation evolves.
Thousands of veterans have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan with significant physical disabilities and unmet needs. The strong and expandable GroHome qualifies for a disabled vet housing grant and will enable communities to directly participate in building a solution for those who have given so much to serve us. The GroHome is a light gauge steel sequential building system (GRO=Green-Repositionable-Open) that is cheaper and more flexible than existing practices and better than manufactured housing. We are seeking leaders interested in taking a donation of the GroHome technology back to qualified vets in a community willing to champion a targeted crowdfunding campaign (we’ll even donate the campaign fee).
