In October 2017, Coffey Park, a neighborhood within the city of Santa Rosa, CA, experienced mass destruction from the Tubbs Fire. Most of the neighborhood was burnt down, leaving fire victims with empty lots that they need to decide what to do with. For the average person, being well versed in the construction process and the different methods that can be used in the recovery process is rare. This paper is a tool to provide those in fire recovery with all of the information they will need in one place. Both modular and traditional stick-built housing are explored in this report as these are the two best options for a fire recovery plan in this area. Through both time and cost analysis, this report will leave Coffey Park residents with the knowledge and confidence they need to make a recovery plan tailored to their needs.
