I was sent this by one of our reader (thanks Dallas!) and it is an awesome video about a quasi container house that can be deployed post disaster designed by the Japanese.
So I realized this is the second or third time this month I have talked about emergency housing, but then something struck me. Did you know September is National Disaster Preparedness month? Here is an interesting emergency shelter that sets up in 5 minutes. What I really like is that yellow rails that makes the whole thing able to be rolled. It is a genius idea and makes so much sense in the real world.
We have talked about using Tiny Houses for homeless and emergency in the past. I have often thought about using one of these solutions as a temporary shelter while building my full Tiny House, then using it as storage. Check out some the other posts: Exo House and The Red House. Today I found a new one that is kinda neat, so check it out!
As the world’s climate changes and natural disasters increase in frequency, versatile and quick-to-deploy emergency shelters can mean the difference between life and death for displaced populations. Seeking to provide for this need, Recovery Huts offers a line of instant shelters that can be set up in 30 minutes by a single person. Each shelter can be delivered in 4 stackable sections that weigh no more than 60 pounds each, and if the 85 sq. ft footprint of each hut is not enough for a household, extender sections enable an entire community of huts to be interconnected.
