SHEFFIELD, Iowa – Sukup Manufacturing Co. is thrilled to announce that a team will build a Sukup Safe T Home® at the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series football game on September 8, 2018. The build will take place at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, near the Nile Kinnick statue immediately south of the stadium, beginning at 1pm. Members of the press are invited to meet the team and take photos at 2pm.
Former professional football players Tim Dwight and Sage Rosenfels will lead the construction team, which will also include well-known former student athletes, such as Jeff Horner, Jack Whitver, Greg Brunner, Lane Danielsen, Jadda Buckley, and many more.
The Sukup Safe T Home® is a hurricane-proof structure the company created from a modified grain bin. The home is hurricane-, earthquake-, fire-, termite-, and machete-proof, and can be constructed in one day or less. There are 350 Safe T Homes® around the world in places like Haiti and Peru. In 2016, all 200 homes in Les Cayas, Haiti, survived Category 4 Hurricane Matthew with minimal damage; by contrast, only 10% of traditional housing survived the disaster.
