Byond Shelters for Nepal — 1 Comment

  1. I looked at one of these shelters closely today. The design is even more clever than I thought. The metal frame is very simple. It’s just curved metal tubing. The metal roofing is not screwed on and there are no holes in the roofing so it can be reused later for permanent housing. It’s held down with thick galvanized wire. The edges of the roofing are crimped together for added strength.

    Optional gutters can be added on the sides to capture roofwater.
