I know what you're thinking: "Umm, bricks are waterproof."

But Aeonian Brick Homes' bricks are made using a special chemical that prevent trace amounts of water from getting into the cracks and crevices of bricks, which will eventually destroy them.

Also, the bricks are "hurricane proof" (up to 240mph) as they are interlocking and are held together with a special glue. And the bricks are supposed to cost the same as your more standard chunks of hardened clay.
