In Huntsville, Alabama, there’s a dynamic firm called Green Structures Homes Delivered. It’s headed up by its chief executive officer, Barbara Stokes.

One of the hallmarks of Green Structures Homes Delivered is that the buildings are quite customizable depending on the needs. They create proprietary designs for these homes that can be used to house people with just one or two bedrooms or more. The kitchens feature state-of-the-art appliances, hand-crafted cabinetry, and both the kitchens and baths can include granite or marble if the situation warrants.
The homes that Green Structures Homes Delivered crafts are built in their facilities, such as in Cullman, Alabama. They are then delivered to where they will be used. By building the homes offsite it means that they have little impact on the property they are placed on. They also feature little impact to the environment as they are energy efficient and use building materials that are environmentally friendly.
When building a home, Green Structures Homes Delivered has multiple checks for quality during the building process. The installation of the homes onsite is also monitored in order to be certain that the home will function as intended. Once one of their homes is delivered to a site it can be put together in just a matter of days.

Beyond helping people recover from natural disasters, Barbara Stokes is also committed to helping those in her local community. She volunteers her time to a number of local charities, for example.
