Following up on an article we last posted Dec. 13, 2012, a Cavco Industries facility in Rocky Mount, Virginia is providing a foundation in New Milford Conn. with 30 manufactured homes. Named for a firefighter who died at the Twin Towers Sept. 9,2011, the Stephen Siller Tunnels to Tower Foundation is offering a free place to live to Staten Islanders displaced by Hurricane Sandy who are willing to locate to Conn. The Franklin News-Post says six of the homes have left the factory en route to Faith Church, where they will be sited and provided at no cost to occupants. The contract includes discounts of $300,000 off the retail price. Fifteen of the homes are scheduled to arrive before Christmas. As MHProNews knows, earlier reports have said the homes designated for the foundation were modular.
