Stone Canyon Lodges Delivers Relief Shelter
Stone Canyon Lodges and Park Models LLC made good on its promise to provide living quarters for victims of the April 27 tornado that struck Alabama.
A finished park model was presented to Chip and Emily Guin on Saturday (May 21) in Hackleburg, Ala.
Larry Smith (at left in photo below), general manager of Stone Canyon Lodges and Park Models LLC, presented the unit. Stewart talks with Emily Guin (holding child) during the presentation of the new park model to Guin and her husband (in green shirt).
The Haleyville, Ala.-based manufacturer built and donated the new park model to the Guins, whose home in Hackleburg was wiped out by the tornado.
The Guins have already moved into their new home. "They were tickled to death. They are an extremely nice young couple," said Phyllis Watts, Stone Canyon president.
The finished unit would sell for upward of $22,000 if sold at retail.
Relief agencies picked a small family for the Stone Canyon project because of the size of the unit — it's just 400 square feet. The unit is equipped with a porch, stackable washer and dryer, a fireplace and air conditioning.
The company is currently building a second park model for another storm victim family.
Stone Canyon employees donated their time to build the relief unit and suppliers donated most of the furnishings.
