Challenge: Hurricane-proof a window-sheathed home on Florida's Gulf Coast
Solution: Use bulletproof windows. The search for tough glass ended with a Canadian firm called Loewen. Each window is made of an inner core of elastic vinyl sandwiched between two panes of tempered glass. They can withstand two-by-fours shot out of a cannon or bullets fired from a Smith & Wesson .38 (one would-be burglar gave up after 23 rounds).
Whodunit: Brad Zeitlin, homeowner - Andrew Tilin
