    I tried to read some of the link material and never got a good idea as to the type of building material used. Part of it is shiny like aluminum and part looks like a vinyl product. It would be nice if the rooms had more ventilation. Use of a crane makes this product commercial and not for everyday ‘home’ use. Sadly I can see FEMA using these or government prison camps if things get really rough.

    I guess these could be considered better than tents. I recall attending a real tent campmeeting on occasion when a child. The bathrooms were located in the bath house and drawing fresh water for taking back to the tent so a modest meal could be cooked up and dishes washed. (others used the cooking pavilion). Shelter and requested amount of cots was all that came for $50 for 10 days. You brought in the card tables, chairs, fans, gas stove then there was the linens and clothing and we had ‘home.’

    I think this a great Idea, should be easy on heat, and cool, maybe extra window, but I would like to see more, you have my in tress.

    .. Very cool .. highly flexible and portable .. Not particularly homely and there are drawbacks regarding access and placement in some areas, but great for many temporary and semi permanent applications ..

  • Dicey Riley August 2, 2015, 12:22 pm

    Looks like it would be extremely hot in the summer, no ventilation, just a metal box cooking in the sun.

    The only thing with these, disturbingly so, is that they look like a modern version of the sharecropper shacks during the dust bowl. Kinda scary that way.

  • Rosalyn August 3, 2015, 10:35 am

    I think this is a wonderful idea. So many people are homeless. Living on the street. No where to lay their head at night. This will give them a sense of security.

    I actually found myself saying, “Oh Wow! ” outloud a couple of times during this video! Interesting concept, and boy, were they quick to set up!! However, I share many of the same concerns as other posters, namely, it doesn’t appear to have good
    ventilation or light-I would be
    concerned about waking up in the middle of the night with a crushing sense of claustrophobia. I also very much wish they had showed one of the units with a bathroom and kitchenette. The LAST thing I would want is to wake up in one of these units without a bathroom in the middle of the night and have to leave my cosy abode in the dark in search of the facilities. That would be quite unpleasant!

    Can a unit be purchased instead of renting? If so, at what cost?

  • Yolanda August 1, 2016, 7:34 pm

    Great!!
    For the return of a college unemployed
    child. Season worker, on farm land.
    And if you have extra large land, great for family reunion.
    National disasters. And of course homeless.
    Would like to see larger units and
    cost. A/C should be added.
    I think this is a great idea, otherwise.

  • Michael August 1, 2016, 9:52 pm

    Well… I think I’ll pass on this one and keep saving for my tiny house. The whole time I watched the video I kept thinking it reminded me of a dumpster with a door.

  • Nancy August 2, 2016, 6:08 am

    Good idea, I guess?
    Maybe I missed something but how do you get air to circulate in these things other than leaving the door open?

  • Maria August 2, 2016, 7:59 am

    There looks to be no vents. The windows don’t open. They need a/c and heat. Even if it is only being used for an event. Hot box! they need a back window. I would like to see the bigger ones that have bathroom and kitchen.

  • ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN August 2, 2016, 8:37 am

    Very cool concept… I like how easy they unfold to create a completed temporary housing, and the US should follow suit in order to be prepared for it’s next unexpected catastrophe, be it natural , or other wise….! I can see FEMA setting these up instead of those lousy trailers they gave people to live in last time we were hit by a hurricane…!

  • Cyndi ann August 5, 2016, 6:49 pm

    I feel that this is a wonderful way to house people when all kinds of disasters happen. As far as ventilation, all these units need are a couple of unbreakable windows each side of doors that open, and possibly even skylights. I think it is a better option to have a bath and modest kitchen, but realize that it adds cost to this emergency solution.. Who has these units? States and/or Gov?
