CORBIN, Ky. (AP) - A Corbin family plans to move into an
energy-efficient prototype home built by a houseboat manufacturer.
Southern Tier Housing spokeswoman Leah Norvell told The
Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/JdcGIL) that Dennis Reynolds, his
wife, Billie, and their 3-year-old son, Grabrille, hope to move
into the home early next month.
Houseboat maker Stardust Cruisers built two relatively low-cost
modular homes in a test to see if the building the structures can
help the ailing houseboat industry. One home was placed in Whitley
County, the other in Monticello.
Whitley County Judge-Executive Pat White said he was proud to be
part of the project that benefits the houseboat industry and
The home is about 1,000 square feet and includes two bedrooms, a
bathroom, laundry room, living space and a kitchen.
