Prefab Construction: Jeriko House Breaking Ground on Many 'Platforms'

Jul 25, 2007, 01:00 ET from Jeriko House, LLC

    NEW ORLEANS, July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeriko House, LLC Founder and CEO
 Shawn Burst announced today that the company is beginning to thrive on many
 fronts. New projects are underway, consumer and contractor demand is on the
 rise and implementation of the Jeriko House philosophy is starting to take
 hold in the prefab building community.
     Jeriko House is living up to its name, not only in the eyes of
 interested homeowners, but to suppliers and homebuilders alike. "We'd like
 to think we own up to our slogan: 'The Platform for Living.' Jeriko House
 hopes to be the hub - the foundation - for the collaborative spirit. Out of
 collaboration comes innovation, and in the end, innovation results in
 better business solutions and ultimately lower cost to the end user," said
 Burst.
     There is a plug-n-play aspect to the Jeriko House prefab system. When
 you think of all of the components of a home - windows, doors, floors,
 walls, lighting, plumbing - it inherently creates a necessary connectivity
 with builders. This, Burst hopes, will "make us not only a platform for
 living but the platform for innovative building."
     With three projects currently underway and larger scale multi-unit
 projects on the horizon, Jeriko is taking hold and growing. Three
 structures are now under construction in Louisiana: a 4320-sq-ft Lakefront
 home; a 5500-sq-ft luxury home in Mandeville; and a 250-sq-ft garden
 retreat in Metairie. All structures exemplify the Jeriko commitment to
 excellence, innovation and structure diversity.
     The newly launched Jeriko House website (http://www.jerikohouse.com)
 has fostered some 3,000 inquiries from prospective homebuilders and home
 owners who find the luxury modular prefab construction extremely appealing.
 The site boasts clever and effective interactivity and consumer design and
 research tools as well as a soon-to-be-released user interface called the
 "Configurator," which will allow homeowners to design and up-fit their
 dream homes virtually to start the process.
     But Jeriko House has always been much more than homes. The Jeriko House
 process is bringing new light to the modular/prefab construction concept.
 The methodology truly brings flexibility to the forefront. The process can
 be used to design a dream house or a lifeguard stand, a mobile medical unit
 or a backyard yoga sanctuary - the possibilities are endless. As the Jeriko
 philosophy steadily takes hold, they are not forgetting their roots: For
 every 10th Jeriko House sold, those ten homeowners will form a committee
 that votes to give a Jeriko House to a family in need somewhere in the U.S.
 That is certainly a platform not only for living but for conducting
 business and giving back to the community.
