It was in 2011, ten years after graduating from college, that Barbara Stokes founded Green Structure Homes Delivered, LLC, also known as GSH of Alabama, LLC, along with her husband Scott Stokes. They are disaster relief construction contractors who work with federal agencies such as FEMA. They are a completely in-house company that designs their own proprietary customizable modular homes, then manufacture them and deliver them to sites where they are then assembled. The homes are 100% American made as they are mainly built in Huntsville, Alabama, which also serves as the headquarters of this firm. Visit cullmantimes.com to know more about Barbara Stokes.
Beyond Huntsville, Alabama, Barbara Stokes made an announcement that her firm is now building these modular homes in eight states. As the chief executive officer of Green Structure Homes Delivered she has established new facilities in Alabama, Pennsylvania, New York, Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina, and Minnesota. Her company did this as they recently signed a $28.5 million contract with FEMA to supply homes and temporary offices to people and businesses in the greater Houston area who were devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
When talking about these new home manufacturing plants, Barbara Stokes said that she was gratified to be able to help people in the Houston area who had lost everything. She was also happy that her work to support those people would also provide jobs to people in eight states both directly and indirectly. The jobs will all be based in America and all of it will benefit people who live in Houston and its surrounding communities who lost so much when Hurricane Harvey poured historic amounts of rain flooding many homes and entire communities.
