The Legislature is considering a bill that would establish statewide construction standards to strengthen homes against floods and hurricane-force winds.
House Bill 76 would require homebuilders to follow the International Residential Code, and builders would have to use more expensive materials and more elaborate construction techniques to make new buildings resistant to hurricane winds.
The IRC has specific requirements for nearly every stage of construction.
Reichel said the techniques used to build La House are not that elaborate or complicated, just different.
