Yes, Lowe’s still sells Katrina Cottages. The cottages are small homes that were designed by Architectural Aid to Disaster Areas (AATA) after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005.
AATA was founded by two architects, Marianne Cusato and Gregory Kloehn, who were working on a project in New Orleans when the hurricane hit. They saw the need for small, portable homes that could be easily assembled and used as emergency housing in disaster areas.
The cottages are made from prefabricated panels that can be easily shipped and assembled on site. They are also designed to be hurricane-resistant and can be outfitted with solar power and other green features.
Lowe’s began selling the cottages in 2006, and to date, more than 1,000 have been sold. The cottages cost between $6,000 and $8,000, depending on the size and features.
