Brad Pitt's First Green Homes Nearing Completion, Spared By Gustav
The official Make It Right NOLA site has updated their situation in regards to the impact of Hurricane Gustav, and it appears that their construction projects made it through largely unfazed.
“We will be visiting the Make It Right homes in the Lower Ninth Ward as soon as officials allow us back in the city,” the website states. “However, initial reports suggest that our homes, whether finished or under construction, are generally in good condition. We will continue to update you as soon as we have more information.”
Understandably, there are probably many anxious individuals participating in this program that are very worried about the state of the construction — especially because these will be the first real homes they’ve had in over three years.
According to OK! Magazine, Brad Pitt is making plans to return to New Orleans to evaulate his home and the project ASAP. Over on the Make It Right site, there are new photos of several of the green homes in various stages of completion. So far, six homes are almost done and ready for occupants. One common theme: They’re all raised to dampen the effects of flooding should the levees ever fail again.
Have a look at the different designs and building efforts here. Glad to hear the project made it through in one piece.
