Last week I wrote about the Katrina Cottages, which where used to help address the need for housing after Hurricane Katrina. I then found this designer who talks about how FEMA addressed housing need before these where built. We used camper trailers, according to this article:
102,000 travel trailers and mobile homes that FEMA purchased after Hurricane Katrina. The price tag for the trailers was more than $2.6 billion, according to FEMA. Despite their cost of about $15,000 each
FEMA later sold those trailers for $1-$2, yes, one to two dollars each! Anyway, this designer thought there had to be a better way and putting aside the fact that FEMA should have thought of this before, here is what he came up with.
The EXO House is a temporary structure used to house refugees and disaster victims quickly for much less than $15k. I was thinking what could we achieve with these for homeless folks?!?!
