5 Minute House: Life Cube

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.


Recovery Huts

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.
