Three Tiny Houses without Borders

Tiny-abod-two-front-houses

Perhaps you read a recent article in the NY Times on portable shelters.  In the article, Jim Robbins discusses the relief housing efforts of a few organizations and companies that I've noticed over the years.  These houses, often prefabricated and flat-packed, typically assemble in a short amount of time with simple, available tools.  Check out these three home designs below and, if you're aware of any similar endeavors, feel free to share a link below.

    I guess they are aimed at the western market with those price tags. Nobel ideas, but how many other ‘portable shelter’ models exist?

    can we slap some of these up in the storm areas to give some folks shelter until their homes are habitable and then move them to vacant areas as homeless shelters?

    Lot’s of talk about these types of temporary homes but you never see them in real life cases. :-(
