An Engineer’s Perspective: How my Heavy Home Withstood Two Hurricanes



An Engineer Documents the Quality Construction of his Oak Creek Home

Kenneth Unkel shares his Oak Creek Home in Kinder, LA with his two dogs. That’s Dusty you see sitting attentively as Kenneth snapped a picture of his home. Kenneth is an engineer. He says he purchased an Oak Creek home a few years ago because of its quality construction. “𝑰 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒕𝒆𝒍𝒍 π’Šπ’• π’˜π’‚π’” 𝒂 π’‰π’†π’‚π’—π’Šπ’†π’“ π’ƒπ’–π’Šπ’π’• π’‰π’π’Žπ’†.” In his own words (in the video above), hear his story and see how his home withstood both Cat. 4 Hurricane Laura and Cat. 2 Hurricane Delta. The only damage to his home was to its skirting. Kenneth said, “𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆’𝒔 𝒂 𝒍𝒐𝒕 𝒐𝒇 π’‡π’“π’Šπ’†π’π’…π’” 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 π’ƒπ’π’–π’ˆπ’‰π’• 𝒐𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓 π’Žπ’π’…π’†π’π’” (𝒏𝒐𝒏-π‘Άπ’‚π’Œ π‘ͺπ’“π’†π’†π’Œ π’ƒπ’–π’Šπ’π’• π’Žπ’‚π’π’–π’‡π’‚π’„π’•π’–π’“π’†π’… π’‰π’π’Žπ’†π’”)… π’•π’‰π’†π’Šπ’“π’” π’…π’Šπ’…π’’𝒕 π’”π’–π’“π’—π’Šπ’—π’†.”

The Oak Creek Homes Difference

Oak Creek homes are builtstrong. We use hurricane/wind straps to secure the structure and frame of our homes. This makes the home more resistant to high winds (such as those in hurricanes). This helps keep the home from uplifting, sliding, and overturning. In addition, all manufactured homes 18 feet or wider receive a 47-point inspection system. This ensures that the home is installed securely and correctly. Oak Creek Homes builds the heaviest home with the highest resale value in the industry. See why the proof is in the pounds here.
