Hurricane Proof House in Gulf Shores

They're calling it the “hurricane proof house” in Gulf Shores.

It’s made only out of concrete construction with a little lumber and nails.

Scott Schroeder is building the home.

He says it can withstand hurricane force winds.

The difference is metal that replaces most lumber.

Walls are filled with concrete instead of dry wall, but protection might not be the only benefit.

The home is about 85 percent complete.

It should be finished in about six more weeks.
