This is a clever idea. It’s a tiny emergency shelter that comes in a 4’x4’x4′ box that can be rolled by hand to the desired location for setup. The total interior space is 144 square feet.
Here’s a cool concept for disaster relief housing. These little housing units are inspired by stacking cups and actually fit together just like stacked cups for easy transportation. These little units are estimated to cost about $5000 each. I’d love to see some of these manufactured for homeless shelters.
I posted an update of the design for A House for Khayelitsha on Tiny House Design. It measures 16′ by 16′ (5 meters by 5 meters), has a sleeping loft, and simple passive solar design. The structure is made up of simple 2×4 and plywood panels.
I’m working to finish the plans quickly so that the house could be built, assuming it meets all their requirements. I’ll also publish the plans online in case anyone else wants to build this simple prefab solar house.
