Diamondhead, Miss., October 22, 2008 -- Carol O'Brien stands on the porch of a Mississippi Cottage, newly made permanent, that she will move into once she has met her sweat equity hours requirement for Habitat for Humanity. FEMA's Long Term Community Recovery Staff in Mississippi teamed up with Bay-Waveland Area Habitat for Humanity to create a "Coastal Cottage," adapted from an Alternative Housing Pilot Program Cottage. The modifications increase the square footage of the modular unit, meet local zoning requirements and place the cottage on a permanent foundation. Jennifer Smits/FEMA.
