As soon as I read your post I thought about the Port Homes. I wondered if anyone would mention them then about halfway through, they did. The concept is exactly what you describe though not in WNY.

I know of three port home communities in FL then of course in TN and Texas. I have search on the Internet for them. I like the idea too.

Just remember that building to meet the code is building the worst that you can legally get away with.

n2916s; Glad you did well with Andrew as it was worst in 30 years prior i.e. @F4 W/ eye of 145 mph AND gusts to 175 MPH. Surprised your 1956 house did that well because that was probably the pre-code which mandated hurricane clips for roof rafters to the double top plate. But then again , houses were built better back then. Codes tend to be minimum that keep houses affordable and insurance companies somewhat happy. Of course buyers can demand better and stronger construction and many builders are willing to perform. Often homes in such categories can cost as little as 10% more and in the long run capture costs in reduced insurance rates. I always build or remodel to way above NEC, NPC and National and International Building Codes. In many cases more fire safe also
