Storms Set Records
2008 saw one of the most deadly and damaging tornado seasons ever. By the end of October, 1621 tornadoes had been confirmed, making 2008 the second most active year on record (2004 had 1817 confirmed twisters). The official death toll of 125 was the highest number of tornado-related fatalities since 1998. Unfortunately, things got no better during the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season. The fourth most active year of all time, 2008 produced a total of 16 named storms, including eight hurricanes with five of them category 3 or higher. It is the only year in which a major hurricane was recorded in the Atlantic during every month from July through November, and it was the first time six consecutive tropical cyclones made landfall in the U.S. (Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gustav, Hanna and Ike). For sheer destructiveness, 2008 ranked just behind 2004 and 2005 with more than $40 billion in property damage.
Several States Adopting Updated Code
Last year, the International Congress of Building Officials (ICBO) released its 2006 revision of the International Building and Residential Codes (IBC/IRC 2006), which contains many changes from earlier versions. Although a handful of states adopted the new code last year, as of January 1, 2008 it takes effect in much of the country. Even the California Building Code has been revised to conform to the new IBC 2006. In order to comply with this code, we will have to slightly modify some of our designs, and these changes could increase our delivery times by two or three weeks in some cases. We appreciate your understanding as we work as hard as we can to provide you the most up-to-date, cost-effective, and secure pre-engineered housing available.
Kodiak Model Energy Home
The Kodiak Steel Homes® Augusta model being built by Dawn and Wesley Howard of Tumbling Shoals, Arkansas was chosen as a model energy home project by Arkansas First Electric Cooperative and energy consultant Doug Rye.
New Color Selector is Up and Running
The Kodiak Steel Homes® site now offers two animated tools to help you visualize the colors and materials you want for your home. The standard color selector is a 3D rendering of our Pendleton model that allows you to change the siding, roofing, and trim colors or even substitute brick and shingle to get the look you want. The special Windmaster color selector is based on our Windmaster Palm Beach model. Since Windmasters only come as a complete package, it doesn't show the brick and shingle, but you can choose from all the available colors for our steel roofing, steel siding, and Polar Wall insulated vinyl siding. We think you will have a lot of fun with both of these.
