Maxima Starter homes
Maxima launched its Housing Kit Production in 2010 in response to the 2010 earthquake. Over 10,000 kits were delivered since. In response to Hurricane Matthew, production is geared up to respond to the housing needs in the south of Haiti. The Maxima housing kit is 250 sqft and comes with all panels, hardware, thick roofing sheets, anchors, hurricane straps and ties. The house is made of treated 2x4's and covered with 1/2" CDX plywood. It is 108mph hurricane certified and lasts 15+ years providing a bit of upkeep is done. As a starter home, many families who received this structure added extra rooms and a better finish, making it the long term solution to get the family back on track. US certified up to 108mph hurricane winds, tested and approved by local communities. Maxima Starter Homes are the lowest cost option to meet all the criteria for a rural Haitian family house.
